Are you looking for a way to keep your family and home safe, but you have to do it on a budget? The Fake TV may be the answer. This is a cool, smart security gadget that works as a burglar deterrent and saves you money too.

The Fake TV makes it seem as if someone is home and up watching television when in reality you might be sleeping, not at home at all, or on vacation.

The Fake TV uses an array of colored, flashing LEDs to create the illusion of the effect of a real TV. It uses a built in computer to control super bright LEDs to produce light of varying intensity and color that light up a room. It comes off as real TV scene changes, fades, flicks, and camera pans. The color changes are both subtle and dramatic and are completely unpredictable.

The Fake TV uses only a fraction of the electricity of a real TV, consuming about the same amount of power as a night light. Plus, if you use the Fake TV this would allow less wear and tear on your new flat screen TV!

    The unit itself measures approximately 4 x 3 x 2 inches.

  3. How long is the power cord for it?
    The power cord measures approximately 52 inches in length.

  4. Does it make sound?
    No, the FTV-10 does not make sound, but simulates the light patterns created by television sets.
