Scare off burglars with a TV simulator

Looking for a home security device but don’t want to spend a bundle on an alarm system, cameras or guards?  The Home Security Television Simulator might be just what you need to secure your home on the cheap.

What the device does is simple – it aims to simulate a flickering television on your curtains or walls.  Potential burglars could see the flickering and think that someone is home watching TV.  They could then decide that your home is one they’d rather avoid.

Using the Simulator is much more power efficient than putting your television on a timer – in fact, the Simulator uses 2% of a television’s power.  You can up pick the Home Security Television Simulator for $39.95 over at Hammacher and Schlemmer.
