Simulate its presence to deter burglars

Sharing is caring!

Simulate its presence through light

The most basic presence simulator consists of an electrical outlet equipped with a timer. All you have to do is plug a lamp into this socket and set the timer to program it to turn on or off. If this device is very simple to operate, it is however not the most effective. Indeed, a conscientious burglar, watching your home for several days, will quickly end up realizing that the lighting turns on and off in a too “mechanical” way.

The TV simulator is also an interesting trick. This small device equipped with LED plays on the projection of lights of different colors to imitate a television in operation. Depending on the system, this presence simulator can operate continuously, be programmed for a specific time slot or even activate automatically at nightfall.

Home automation, for a larger-than-life illusion

Home automation is by far the best technology for simulating a presence. Lamps, television, radio, roller shutters or even sun visors are all equipment that can be programmed and controlled remotely, via a smartphone or tablet, allowing you to simulate an activity in your home in a much more natural way.

Some systems even allow you to record your lifestyle habits, in order to reproduce them faithfully in your absence, for a perfect illusion!

Associate the presence simulator with other equipment

The presence simulator can sometimes be enough to deter a burglar. However, if unmasked, it will offer no protection to your home! For flawless security, it is strongly recommended to couple your simulator to an alarm system integrating, for example, surveillance cameras, motion or opening detectors, etc.

And beware, if it is easy to buy an alarm kit to install yourself, this option is far from being the most secure. Only a professional can best advise you on the equipment needed to protect your home, depending on its configuration.
For optimum protection, opt without hesitation for a remote monitoring system, in constant contact with a monitoring centre. Get closer to well-known companies, justifying a long experience and guarantees (regular control of your equipment remotely, maintenance of equipment, etc.), such as the company SEPSAD, leader in remote monitoring in the USA  for 20 years.
