LAlarm Features

Theft Alarm – It sounds an alarm when it detects a thief attempts to take the laptop, using various settings you can set, including a Perimeter Alarm and Inattention Alarm (alarm when left unattended, in an unsafe area, for a period of time).

It also has a Battery Alarm (so you know if your battery is under stress to preserve the battery’s capacity, and also if the level is low), as well as a Disk Alarm, so you’ll know should the hard drive need to be repaired or replaced.

There’s also Data Destruction and Recovery (Protecting sensitive data from any thief), and the alerts include a SMS alert, and E-mail alert, and you can choose what to do should the laptop be stolen.

Finally, there’s a Health Alarm, to prevent computer-caused injuries to users, and a Panic Alarm, that the user sounds in case of emergency. It emits a loud sound, and can e-mail/text  the user.
