Sentry PC - The Pc Administrator

SentryPC enables you to control, restrict and monitor access and usage of your PC.  You can control how long and when users are allowed to use the computer, prevent the use of specific programs, block access to certain websites, restrict access to Windows functions like the Control Panel and more.

SentryPC can also block chat activities, and intercept the user if specific keywords (of your choice) are typed in an email, URL, document or other input area.  In addition to access control, the program can also record all activities, including keystrokes, chats and more for complete activity monitoring.

SentryPC offers a complete solution for any type of PC access control, ranging from basic time management, to complete surveillance and child proofing of your PC.

SentryPC Parental Control Software

Time Management

Probably the most important feature of SentryPC is its time management.  Every program, game, website, etc is at your disposal for time management settings.  This means you can specify by what hours on what days of the week the user can access and use your selection.  You also have the ability to enter a 'weekly allowance' which when the total time you enter for the selection has been used for that week the user no longer has access until the following week.

  • Time Management Main
    You have the ability to block computer usage completely during the hours you specify for each day of the week.  Included is the ability to specify a total weekly allowance of computer usage which when reached will block access until restored by you or the next week begins.  You may also set daily limits as well.

  • Restore Access
    If a user has been blocked access you have the option as the administrator to quickly and easily grant them full access.  This is useful if a user really does need access, but due to settings is being blocked for whatever reason.

Filtering Capabilities

SentryPC has an extensive filtering engine built in.  You can essentially choose a daily schedule of 'allowable' times for virtually any program, game, website, or even the computer or Internet itself.  This lets you specify at what specific times they can be accessed by that specific user.  You can even enter a weekly total allowance to prevent extensive use over the course of the week.

  • Application Filtering
    Filter any application or game choosing what hours and days along with a total allowance for the week for each user.

  • Chat Filtering
    Filter AOL, AIM, AIM Express, AOL Chat, Yahoo, ICQ, MSN, Excite, Trillian, Mirc, and Odigo for each user.  Choose what hours and days along with a total allowance for the week.

  • Keystroke Filtering
    Enter specific words or phrases that cannot be entered by users.  For instance, enter your childrens name, address, phone number, etc and whenever they are typed the window will be closed instantly.  This ensures confidential information cannot be shared with others through email, websites, etc.

    Through keystroke record you will also be able to record MySpace activities such as chats, messages, emails, logins, and more.  MySpace is becoming a popular gathering for young individuals as well as internet predators.

  • Website Filtering
    Filter specific websites and choose what hours and days along with a total usage allowance for week.

  • User Notification
    You have the option to alert the user that they were blocked by a popup stating so.

Monitoring Capabilities

SentryPC also monitors and records important information for all users of the computer.  You will have easy to read reports of all keystrokes, windows opened, applications used, websites visited, and all chat conversations.  Each includes the time, date, and duration as well.  This is imperative for preventing harmful and/or unauthorized use of the computer and Internet.

  • Keystroke Logging

  • Events Timeline Logging
    Log all events users performed and view them in an organized chronically ordered listing. The Events Timeline lets you view what the events the user performed, in the order they did them. Events logged include Program Starts/Stops, Website Visits, Filtering Events, Window Viewings, and more.

  • Applications Usage Logging
    Log every application a user runs, as well as how long they actually interact with each application so you can determine if a user is actually using a program they have open, or if it is just running in the background.

  • Chat Conversation Logging
    Log all AOL, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, and MSN Messenger chat conversations made by users of your computer.

  • Website Visit Logging
    Log all website visits and online searches performed by the popular browsers used today. All website visits are logged by website address, username, and duration of the site visit. SentryPC also logs how long users visit each website so you can easily see what websites are visited the longest. SentryPC supports the latest versions of the following browsers: Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera, Mozilla, Firefox, and America Online.
