iAlertU It is a GNU application that when executed remains as resident in the Mac bar and allows blocking from the Apple Remote control by means of a long press on the «MENU» button to block the screen while activating the alarm. The alarm sound is similar to that of a normal car but has certain inconsistencies that give you faith as a beta version that it is.
iAlertU It incorporates, as can be seen in the image, protection against writing on the keyboard, movement of the mouse, plugging or unplugging the power adapter, disconnection of USB / fireWire devices, closing the screen (macBook / MBPRo / Air) and movement (MbPro and MbAir) since it uses the motion sensors incorporated in this equipment. This last option is convenient to use with care since a light and innocent touch to the table where it is located will set off the alarm if we leave the value that it brings by default so it is convenient to put it at least in the value shown in the image above To avoid our MacBook Pro getting confused and throwing a number in the office while we are on our coffee hour.
iAlertU gives the option to send via Apple Mail a photo of whoever is in front of the iShight camera when the alarm is triggered to the email address specified in the configuration. It can also be armed from the application menu (useful if we do not have a remote control) and we can deactivate it with a password.
It also happens from time to time that by long pressing the «MENU» button to deactivate the alarm, we do not pay much attention and we have to insist a couple of times but nothing that does not allow iAlertU to be a good security gadget for our mac's
It seems that it also works for iMacs, Mac Minis and Mac Pro but logically we will not have a motion detector or screen closure available, in the Mac Pro and Mac Mini we will not have the possibility to send a photo by email since we do not have a camera (if you do not we have put one).
It works perfectly on Tiger and Leopard (saving the little bugs).
