Arduino burglary prevention

michu figures thieves rarely enter a house if they think someone is home. You might fool a burgler by leaving on a light or TV when you go out, but what a waste of electricity. This simple Arduino project simulates the lighting of a TV, making it look like it’s on while consuming far less electricity.

Well I had an old Seee­duino (Atmega 168P) lie around, together with a LiPo Rider Pro and a 6Ah Bat­terie pack. I added two WS2801 LED pix­els and added some lines of Arduino Code — my Arduino Theft Pro­tec­tion was finished.
