From Solitude Technology:
PC-Alarm and Security System allows you to transform your PC into a fire and burglar alarm system. Monitor mouse and keyboard activity for uninvited intruders, plus, utilizes your computer's microphone to monitor loud sounds such as a fire or home alarm. Also monitors inexpensive door-mounted alarms to detect intruders in and around your home or office. It locks the keyboard and mouse to prevent unauthorized access to your computer. If someone tries to access your PC while you're away, it not only prevents unauthorized access, it can notify you instantly. Alarm notifications are sent using e-mail, network messaging, or pager, or dial a phone number and play a prerecorded sound file. Send as many notifications as you want. The most recent addition includes video surveillance which uses your Webcam to capture still photos or live video each time an alarm is triggered. Also includes remote video surveillance. This feature uses your Webcam to capture and post images to a website via FTP on set intervals. Latest changes: Now prevents system shutdown from the task manager while the system is armed in away mode.
What's new in this version:
Version 2.2.12 fixes a critical bug identified in the video surveillance module.
Seems to be a good program, although I did not test it much seeing that it was only a demo that I had no intention of buying
Demo, not free. Why does Cnet allow this?
CNet used to be my first choice for all computer apps. But now it seems they allow vendors to say whatever they want about their product after posting it for download, and never do any checking to validate the claims.
We would like to update our comment "Too much trouble to get it to work all-away-around. Tech Support and all others who have their available E-Mails WILL NOT RESPOND to your E-Mails sent to them for HELP!"
We have been using this since about a week after our first comment. Tech Support assisted us in setting-up this software on our computer. We are most pleased with its security to our home all-away-around and thank this company for this software. We give it "now" five (5) golden stars.
