This device is a knock-off of the real FakeTV brand. It seems to be one of the better knock-offs (another one I saw looked like flashing Christmas lights, not convincing as a TV at all.)

The device is a little smaller than I thought. I knew the size of the thing, and other people have said the same thing, but it's just a little smaller than I thought.

It does a mostly-convincing job of replicating a TV, but the pattern is a little too fast. It would be more convincing if it were slower.

The pattern does repeat, however, after about 30 seconds.

If someone sits and watches this for a few minutes, they would know it's not a TV.

One particular pattern is extremely fake-looking. It flashes green at one point, and if it did it only one or twice, it would be OK, But it does it 13 times in a row. If you see this repeatedly, you would know it's not a TV.

You might be able to pop the lens off (it's screwed down by star-head nuts) and paint over a few of the green LEDs to cut this down, but I don't know what effect that would have on the other patterns, that use green in them.

If you sit it too close to the windows, it will be too bright, and look fake. If you set it too far, it will obviously not be bright enough. Four feet seems to be too close with my windows and shades. A piece of paper taped over the lens will diffuse it more, and make it look more realistic at that distance.

You could also cut a piece of plastic from a semi-transparent milk jug, and tape over the lens.

I wouldn't even bother with using the timer feature.

Before I received this FAKE TV, when I left the house (day or night), I would turn my FM Radio on and quite loudly and then turn on a Living Room light. So when I received this item, I decided I had to test and then use it.

1) This unit works well and simulates a TV on perfectly. So I went outside and looked first and looked a few feet toward my Living Room window, it looked like a TV was playing. Then I looked through my front door that has a narrow window. It looked just like a TV was playing.

2) Has 2 timers - Dusk + 4 hours and Dusk + 8 hours and also regular ON (stays on).

3) To make this more real, what I do is to ALSO TURN ON my FM Radio LOUD, this way there is light from the Fake TV and real sound from the radio. I suggest that you do both when you leave your home for added protection.

This item was provided to me for the purpose of testing and reviewing. And I am very happy to report that I am using this everyday.

The unit is small, easy to use, and projects a bright, realistic effect onto the ceiling, that looks like a TV. It produces a pattern of colors in a set sequence. I was disappointed that the same sequence repeats itself after only 45 seconds. I would prefer a more random, less repetitive pattern.

Short version: Does the trick.

The longer version:

Pros:
* Easy setup (i.e., plug it in, aim at a white wall, mostly close your blind or drape, go on vacation)
* Accurately simulates TV and doesn't appear to repeat much or at all
* Surprisingly bright for its size
* Easily concealed
* Stays safely and only moderately warm (no high heat)
* No odd smells when running (e.g., due to heating of parts)

Cons:
* The light sensor is non-adjustable and as a result, a darkish room (e.g. north exposure with large windows and partially closed blinds) is dark enough to make this run constantly, which...
* Requires a separate timer if you don't want it running 24/7 in that darkish room

Other thoughts
Docked a star for the light sensor issue. Largely the main function is handled very well, but I didn't want to have to use a timer to regulate the device. Other than that, I have zero complaints. For those curious about its functionality, it has a bright white LED and then three others (RGB) that are engaged separately and together for random lengths of time to simulate scene and lighting changes in a TV show. Before running it, we were a bit skeptical, but that quickly melted away to being quite satisfied with the simulation. The two I bought both have a single color that runs for a bit too long at the very beginning, but then it kicks into gear and puts on a show using the RGB and white LEDs.

Length: 0:23 Mins
People leave lights on all the time when they go on vacation. What makes a house look truly lived in is a television. Fake TV is supposed to replicate the flicker and color of a television. This one has a light sensor that goes off at dusk and can stay on for four or eight hours. Alternatively, leave it on all the time.

I used this in our guest bedroom for days. When my husband finally noticed it, he said it looked like a light bomb went off in the room. True, it's brighter than a regular TV, more flashy (as in flashing lights). I went outside one night to see what our regular television looks like from outdoors and then turned on Fake TV, leaving it at the same distance from the window as the real TV but facing away from the window. It's still noticeably brighter, with more light movement.

I'm not sure how much this would affect a burglar, who maybe wouldn't take the time to discern the difference. I'm going to use it regardless. Better some light than no light.
