Description

THIEF BUSTER STOPS THIEVES STEALING YOUR LAPTOP!!

+SCARES THIEVES when they try to take your laptop
+STARTS A LOUD ALARM when lid is closed or power disconnected
+SENDS PHOTOS of the thief to you by email
+GIVES LOUD SPEECH WARNINGS (customizable text and voice)

HOW IT WORKS:
+ARM YOUR COMPUTER with a single click from the menu bar.
+COMPUTER IS ARMED, SCREEN IS LOCKED, PHOTOS ARE BEING TAKEN.
+THIEF BUSTER PROTECTS YOUR COMPUTER UNTIL YOU ENTER PASSWORD.
+CLOSING LID OR POWER LOSS (if cord was connected) TRIGGERS ALARM.
+GIVES SPEECH WARNINGS first (voice and text can be customized in preferences)
+ALARM STARTS (volume level cannot be changed or muted)
+DISARM WITH PASSWORD.

WORKS ON BOTH MACBOOK AND MACBOOK AIR.

Your Thief Buster protected computer will give voice warnings and start a loud alarm noise if someone tries to disconnect it from the power cord or closes the lid. Using the power cord is not necessary, but recommended.

While it is armed Thief Buster continuously takes photos with the built in Webcam, so if someone disconnects or closes the lid it automatically sends the owner an email with a few pictures taken prior to the trigger event.

The alarm can be disabled by simply entering your password.

Note: When the lid is closed, the computer enters (forced) sleep mode, which sometimes prevents the email being sent. If the lid is opened again it tries to send another alarm message if network is still available.
