FakeTV is a burglar deterrent that recreates the light of a real hdtv television. So from outside, it looks just like someone is home watching tv. Most burglars do not target occupied houses. Why risk prison? So when a prowler sees that flickering glow that means someone is home watching tv, he knows to move on to an easier target. So, FakeTV makes a break-in less likely. Our model ftv-11 is three times brighter than our model ftv-10 and ftv-7 FakeTV's built-in computer controls 12 super-bright leds that fill a room with light. It accurately simulates scene changes, fades, and on-screen motion, in thousand of possible shades of color, just like real tv. A built-in light sensor turns FakeTV on at dusk, and it can be set to turn off after four or seven hours. The dynamic light from FakeTV conveys the impression of "alive" in a way that a light on a timer cannot. Consumes just the power of a night light. AC adapter included.

Setup is a breeze; you simply connect the light to the two pronged power cable, plug it in, and select your setting (Always On; Dusk + 7 Hrs; Dusk + 4; Off). I keep ours on the +7 setting in a room upstairs facing the street. Note that it doesn't have to be too dark in the room for the light sensor to respond, so be warned that the FakeTV may click on a bit earlier in the evening than you might think (meaning that it may shut off earlier than you might think as well).
Looking up at our windows where the product is placed, you'd never know that the light being emitted from the room was from anything but a big, vivid television screen. The 12 LEDs are super bright, and the flickering patterns they produce are extremely authentic. Power consumption for this item is advertised as being really low, and it doesn't get hot over time—which is paramount as you'll most likely use the FakeTV when you're either asleep in another room or away from home altogether! All told, I'm really pleased with this purchase, and while there's no guarantee that this will keep our cars completely safe... I'd like to believe that it's an easy, affordable discouragement to all but the boldest of criminals.
Feel free to leave me a comment or question, I’m happy to add anything else you’d like to know about the product. Thanks for taking the time to read my review, hopefully this information was useful!
Now have 2-FTV10s and 1-FTV11. Positioned both in a room pointed to a window with closed blinds. The FTV11 appeared brighter from outside that window. Inside the room the FTV10 appeared to have a wider beam pattern and was more effective in covering windows in adjacent walls of a corner room. The FTV11 is most effective when pointed at a single window.
