More of a heads up than a deal. Disturbed a burglar yesterday, thankfully nothing of worth taken, have been looking at deterrents since (horse, stable...I know). Came across this gadget which I think sounds effective.
Can be had around this price +/- £2-3 from other less well known sellers.
Make Burglars think you are at home with the FakeTV visual burglar deterrent. The FakeTV is quick & easy to set up, simply place it near a window and its internal light sensor will automatically trigger the super bright multi-colour LED lights at dusk, simulating a working television set. The FakeTV is eco friendly using less power than a night light and is safer than leaving a television set running when no-one is at home. Real Burglars know that Real TVs do not work on timers!
