X10's moving-parts-and-bikini-babes design surely helps it reach its target audience, because nothing says "concerned about security threats" quite like people on the Internet who click flashing pictures of random women! While at first the ladies seem to play a purely cosmetic role, their presence on the "spy camera" page gives the impression that customers use this equipment for creepy surveillance much more than home-protection purposes.

X10 also sells the "Ultimate Home Security System," which apparently works by flooding your house with an eerie green glow, thus creating the burglar-dissuading illusion that it's occupied by a poltergeist. (R.I.P., Zelda Rubinstein.)

Graphics help communicate the message 'gentle, not annoying.'

    The Upper Kitchen Cabinet Where Your Roommate Keeps His Food: You’ll 'need the footstool' to reach your roommate’s 'fine selection' of 'stale cereal,' but he'll never notice if 'only a little is missing from each box.' Feel less guilty by reminding yourself that Jeff 'acts weird around your girlfriend,' and always 'asks about her.' What a 'creep.'
