Cool gadget for a budget price. May be even cheaper than ebay !

Description: Central Locking for your PC. Simply plug the USB device into your USB port, and whenever you move more than about two metres away from your computer (whilst carrying your 'remote' receiver), your computer automatically locks itself! When you get back to within two metres of your computer it unlocks again. Once the computer enters the "Lock Mode" a password is required to use the computer again.

Specifications: Operation frequency: 434MHz | Transmitter power supply: DC 3V (included) | Battery usage: approximately 2000 hours | Receiver power supply: DC 5V provided by the computer through the USB port | Software driver: supports Windows 98SE/ ME/ 2000/ XP

Special Features: USB central locking key | Remote control locking unit | Effective range about 2 metres | Auto-lock when you're away from your computer | Transmitter uses a DC3V battery (included) | USB receiver size: 70 x 20 x 10 mm | Remote control transmitter size: 10 x 30 mm diameter

I really like the sound of that gadget!

But what's stopping someone simply removing the USB device?

That's what I'd be worried about! Some "prankster" hiding the USB stick with the PC all locked up!!

In such case restarting the PC should solve the problem, I guess

Surely that would defeat the object of it being security?

Great gadget, I want one :geek:

Just missed a great deal!

nice idea, but if you use windows 2000 or xp thew same can be achieved with two key strokes

pressing ctrl+alt+del then enter locks your pc for free

I got into that routine years ago, after people sending prank emails at work whenever someone left their desk
