[prMac.com] Prescott, Arizona - Empoc, LLC today is thrilled to announce the release of Screen Vault, a new application for Mac OS X. Screen Vault is an application made specifically for OS X and provides a brand new stylish way for customers to lock and unlock their Mac.
The idea for Screen Vault was first realized by Chris while thinking about new, never before seen ways to interactively lock / unlock your Mac. Thinking of different types of locking mechanisms and currently available technology sparked the idea for a combination lock that could be controlled via the rotate gesture of the track pad that is built into MacBooks as well as the Magic Track pad that is available for iMacs and Mac Mini's
Please see below for a full list of features.
* Themes: Change the look of Screen Vault by changing the graphics and text using the built in Theme Designer.
* Unlock Options: Unlock your mac using a combination lock by utilizing the rotate gesture of your track pad or use a pass pattern seen on most Android phones.
* Sounds: Change the way you lock and unlock your mac by choosing your own lock and unlock sounds.
* Intruder Snap Shots: Screen Vault can be setup to automatically take snap shots of intruders when they try to unlock your mac with an incorrect combination or pass pattern.
* Intruder Video Recording: Screen Vault can be setup to automatically start recording the second someone tries to unlock your mac with an incorrect combination or pass pattern.
* Video Surveillance: Screen Vault can be setup to automatically start recording video as soon as you lock your mac. A useful feature if you want to know what's going on while you're away.
* iTunes Info & Controls: Control what song is playing in iTunes while your screen is locked or view information about the current song that's playing. iTunes controls and info are widgets that can be turned on or off in preferences.
