Digital Sentry for Mac
Koingo Software has announced Digital Sentry, an application that monitors a user's computer and performs a variety of actions based on specific events. As an organizational tool, the program can be set to speak a line of text at a particular point in time as a reminder of an important invent. The features can also be used for security purposes, such as a password watch that immediately captures a webcam image when an incorrect password is entered. The photo is then sent directly to a user's e-mail.
Digital Sentry is capable of monitoring a variety of events, including program launches, mouse clicks or movement, elapsed time and the moments when the computer goes into hibernation or awakens from sleep mode. The logs can be set to include only specific keystrokes or every input. Users can also monitor if the computer was dropped or moved, along with any power source changes.
The events can be set to trigger actions such as fake security alerts, logging out of an account, or opening a file, folder or application. Users can set the computer to shutdown after certain actions, or ping a URL with system information.
Digital Sentry is compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and is priced at $20 per license. A 15 day free trial is also available from the company website.
