Idea: Router Alarm

Prevent theft of computer With ROUTER Alarm by wireless (or cable) cut-off

Build in an airport-connection ALARM into the router – when a computer is moved or closed (loses its IP), the alarm goes off.

Works via MAC-address recognition.

A background app running, (which stays open upon quit), and signing out with the right code dismantles the alarm for this computer.

Signing on to the router would be automatic – correct MAC-address connects the alarm

Computers unknown to the router get no alarms.

IDEAL for systems with always-on policy, eg. notebooks in a home, servers etc.

One thought on “Idea: Router Alarm”

  1. IF the computer crashes, the ALARM sounds, until the computer is back up. Or MAC is recognised.

    That is annoying.

    Maybe reporting activity via pings to a certain port, ie. to allow disconnect, when in active use.
