It’s easy to find timers to turn on lamps to give your home a lived-in look while you’re out of town. If you’re like me, lamps are only part of making my house look like I’m home. My TV is on most nights, and normal lamps just can’t mimic the bright, flickering look of a TV playing. SmartHome has the FakeTV Burglar Deterrent lamp that uses LEDs of various colors and an internal computer to produce a constantly changing, bright lightshow that appears someone is home watching TV. The FakeTV has a light sensor that automatically turns on the lightshow in a dark room. The FakeTV produces the amount of light typical of a 27″ television. It’s currently $29.84 at SmartHome.
