I think it's the same one on their German Lild site which says 12 leds, Less than 3watts and mostly very positive reviews.

These create a very realistic effect of a TV being on inside a room. So effective that when we were on holiday, my father-in-law thought we had left a TV on and called us to ask if we wanted him to go in and switch it off for us.

That's a rather nifty device. Simple, yet I'd imagine quite effective.

Do not think so, they seem to like bright lights.

Crikey! No 'why not leave TV on' or 'get decent locks etc' or 'get an alarm (but it has to be a certain sort)' remarks yet!!

Leave the plasma TV on all day so your house it all toasty by the time you get home in the evening!

I bought one of these a while back. I have it running automatically every day after dark behind some very thin curtains in my box room which faces the front of my house, so it looks like there is someone up there watching TV until late every night even when I'm out. Due to the curtains you can't actually see into the room but you can see the lights flickering.

Thing is, I don't actually watch TV and so avoid paying the TV tax. I had a knock from the TV tax inspector last November who was doing the rounds checking un-licenced addresses and accused me of watching TV without paying. Recorded my box room window on his mobile phone as 'evidence' and said I'd be hearing from him again but never did. Pity, I would have had so much fun.

Any right minded burglar would knock on the door to check if anyone's home.

Or Netflix/youtube etc. The TV licence is so outdated, not fit for purpose.

Yes but without HDR
#21
In certain neighbourhoods a good device, nice idea and more mentally stimulating to watch than XFactor or Stricly etc..

Does this work if you leave the room light on and with curtains drawn? Can the lights be seen from outside? With nets and curtains I would have expected little or no TV lighting to show through but I've not checked

Thanks. I am asking if the lights would be visible outside. I've edited by original response to clarify.

Interesting proposal.. I gave in and put the central heating on this week.

How much watts does a plasma take these day... Can't beat 3 watts!

Bought one of these 5 years ago for my parents, this is a bargain.

Why not get a wifi plug and randomly switch your TV on over wifi or 3G. About 12-15 quid. Look for orvibo s2

Not is their bullying tactics. How they can get away with trying to blatantly bully people into getting a licence is beyond me.

Don't move to Austria or Germany as you'll pay more.
Many countries have a TV licencing policy. I've been to some and thank goodness for the BBC. I see many may not like the bbc, but from what I've seen it is the best national provider.

maybe because that's twice the price of this deal, a lot more effort to set up and use, and a tv will use more power so cost more to run too?
#32
Can someone clarify how many channels this has please.
#33
I had one of these until a burglar stole it leaving behind my heavy plasma tv ?
#34
'simulates the flicker of a TV' eh? Do they sell a 100Hz flicker free version? I hate to think potential burglars would think I had merely a 50Hz TV', the shame.

or get 6 years warranty from richer sounds

Bought one of these last time. Excellent product and price. Voted hot.

Like you, I've also been to some countries and I'm pretty sure no other country allows salesman to lie and bully on a member of the public's doorstep, trying to get the person to buy a product they haven't asked for and may not want or need.

Can't quite understand, if you don't watch licencable TV you just close the door. If you do watch it then you are liable.
