To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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
I like this product. It is worth. It does what it is supposed to do. it presents an interesting advantage that it is a timer pluggable and more dynamic then a simple light. Very easy to use. Really gives the impression that the TV is playing. Potentially deters buglar from passing to the act. But it could be better if it would be adjustable elctronically or via usb port instead of the button.
We have only used this for a few days as I have just received it. When our blinds were closed at night, my husband went outside to see if it looked like we were watching TV and he said it works well. Knowing that it does work well makes me feel more secure at night. I would recommend this to everyone.
