It could use more options for the built in "timer" functionality. Either either off, always on, or else set to run for 4 or 7 hours after it sense it is "mostly complete darkness." Anyone scoping out your place may well notice the pattern. It would be nice if it had an option to randomize the start and stop time by 30 minutes or an hour. (Without making it required to enter the current time, it could remember when darkness occurred one night, then wait randomly 23:30 to 24:30 hours for the next night (while still updating for when sundown occurs each night.)) Long story short, just get your own timer for it, that has this sort of randomizing functionality, and turn it to always on and let the external timer turn it off and on.
I bought 2 different styles of fake tv, this brand and another. Then I put them in 2 different windows of my house and also turned on my real tv on the ground floor. This model isn’t nearly as bright as the other one and doesn’t have a tilt feature. It has fewer colours and looks mostly white from the road with some subtle colour variation. Turns out this is actually closer to mimicking a real tv though. Real TV light is mostly white and Fully lights up a dark room. So, this unit isn’t really bright enough. Anyway, I will keep both units and use one for home and one for the cabin. It’ll just take some adjusting to make it look most realistic.
Compré el articulo debido a un viaje de 2 semanas que realicé. Mi casa está a pie de calle y lo coloqué en la habitación principal en segundo piso. No sé si fue casualidad o realmente fue el fake tv, pero puedo afirmar que no me robaron. El equipo funciona bien, se prende cuando sensa oscuridad y yo programé el apagado automático después de 7 horas, aunque también tiene función para 4 horas. Los detalles que le veo son que resulta difícil ubicarlo en el cuarto para que parezca real. Los colores son muy intensos y los cambios son muy drásticos, al ver la recámara desde la calle da la impresión de que se está usando una gran televisión con una película animada. En resumen me pareció algo exagerada la proyección pero funcional.
The product appears to be well made and is easy to use out of the box. Better than what I have seen elsewhere. I would have liked the time settings to be more flexible or more choice and would have liked it to be more powerful as it does not seem to throw out as much light as my 55 inch tv. I would be happy to pay more for this improvement but great value fro what it is.
I think it could be brighter, but I think most people can figure out how to get it close enough to a window for the effect to work satisfactorily. It does do a good job at mimicking a TV. Considering the price, I would recommend it
A truly amazing product. Well worth the money. Cannot tell if it's a real TV or the Fake TV unit. The display of colour combination it makes looks like different scenes and when it pauses then comes back on makes it look like a commercial is coming on. I recommend it to anybody for that added security in their home or apartment. It really looks like someone is at home watching TV.
WE can't say enough about this product. We put it in the front of the house and even when we have come home late at night we thought we left the tv on. It looks exactly like someone is watching TV. LOVE this product. Will probably be buying another one really soon. EXCELLENT!!!!
