Randy Green of SlappingTurtle has released version 0.19b of iAlertU, a shareware “car alarm” system for Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops. The software, which uses the laptop’s built-in sudden motion sensor, can detect movement on the laptop and triggers a loud audible alarm noise as well as flashes the screen to alert those nearby that the laptop is being stolen.
The system also functions even when the laptop’s screen has been closed and turns on and off via the standard infrared remote that ships with each MacBook and MacBook Pro. The software can be configured with regard to preferred alarm noises, the duration of the alarm and the overall sensitivity of the MacBook. iAlertU is also capable of using the laptop’s built-in iSight camera to snap pictures of the thief and will be able to e-mail these photos to a user-specified e-mail address in a future version.
Given that a picture’s worth a thousand words, demo footage of iAlertU can be found here thanks to YouTube.
iAlertU is a 717 kilobyte download courtesy of MacUpdate.
