Fake TV For Home Security

August 16, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

fake-tv-for-home-security

Home security and burglar deterrence should be thought of in ‘layers’. In addition to deterrents such as outdoor motion lights, security stickers & placards, deadbolts, bump-proof locks, long screws in your door strike-plate, an x-large dog bowl on the front porch, a real or fake security camera, etc., consider what the INSIDE of your home looks like as viewed from the OUTSIDE to a potential burglar.
