SkyMall Monday: Fake TV Burglar Deterrent
Think that a home security system is more than enough to keep your house safe? Believe that no criminal worth his salt will fall for a decoy? Well, while you're filling out a police report, we'll be reading the product description:
Using super bright LEDs, the Fake TV Burglar Deterrent Device simulates the light and flickering of a real 27" HDTV while consuming up to 50 times less power. From outside your home, this fake tv gives the illusion that someone's inside, so burglars will go elsewhere...make sure the fake TV is not visible from outside.Burglars will think that you're home and not wealthy enough to afford a very large television. Most thieves want at least a 32" TV screen. And, of course, leaving the decoy out of plain sight is probably a solid idea.
Sure, home security systems can keep your home safe, but they aren't your only option. I'd much rather trust my home to a flickering light than a sophisticated monitoring system. Especially since someone could always just kick in your door.
