You might deter kids with this lame device but real criminals stake out a residence several nights before striking and caught on to most ruses. Have a friend drop by at different times both day and night and/or get neighbors to keep a look out.
True, better yet, I’d put one of these stealth cameras: http://www.amazon.com/Stealth-Cam-STC-SLC2W-2-0-Megapixel-Floodlight/dp/B00159TZBU/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=hi&qid=1279067706&sr=8-3&tag=011080-20
A friend told me about this, and at first I thought it was sort of a joke until I was fooled myself. I bought one, and whatever your take on the astuteness of burglars, I have to say that it is impossible to tell the difference between this and an actual TV. Also, I don’t think that a surveillance camera — stealth or prominent — is much of a deterrent. Unless an assault has been committed, police won’t follow up on video footage. It happened to us. The thief was caught on tape, but the police shrugged and claimed that the image wasn’t good enough for evidence. Burglars know this. I say it’s best to keep them away in the first place, and there’s nothing better than letting them think that somebody’s home. This they do know: police very much take assault seriously.
Good story, that’s exactly what i tried to say. 🙂
