iAlertU is the first of its kind alarm system for your Apple MacBook computer, it is very similar to a traditional car alarm, but for your Mac. iAlertU uses the built in sudden motion sensor (SMS) device to detect movement of your MacBook and triggers an audible and visual alarm.

The alarm can also be triggered by keyboard and mouse/trackpad movement. It is designed to continue sounding even after the MacBook screen has been closed. iAlertU is activated and deactivated using the infrared remote control inlcluded with every MacBook computer. User adjustable settings let you decide which type of alarm triggers you would like to use, the duration of the alarm, and motion sensor sensitivity.

iAlertU also features functionality to utilize the built in iSight camera to photograph the would be thief and soon will be able to email the photo to a user specified email address. Although an active Internet connection would be needed for that functionality…

iAlertU is in Beta stage and is available for free download.
