I just seen one of these at the store for $35. I can't believe there's a market for these.

For $35, you can buy a pretty decent used TV.

Sure it uses a little more power, but how often are you really not home?

Maybe for someone who travels a LOT?

I'd rather put the money towards a good camera security system.

That's exactly what I thought it was when I read the thread title. Good idea.

It's a good idea, but not for $35

Wait, why wouldn't someone just actually leave the TV on?

They are a good idea. Anything to get the burglars to choose another house, and not yours, is money well spent.

About two years ago, I knew a guy whose TV caught on fire and burned his whole house down. But I guess a TV light could possibly do the same.

This uses less electricity, and less wear and tear on an expensive TV.

How about this one for $11? It's CHEAP. Perhaps inferior, but all you're trying to do here is make your house a somewhat less attractive target. That's all it takes to avoid break-ins most of the time.
