    Security Idea for RR

    ok, been thinking as you do.. what do you think of this idea ?

    On first turn on of your PC and it loads RR as standard
    or
    On return from hibernation and it returns to RR

    it goes to a lock screen, where you enter a pin number to return to normal operation.. I know this has already been done.. so nothing new here.

    When the lock screen first appears a onscreen counter starts.. 60 seconds to comply ( even add a voice sample ) it counts down.. once 0 seconds have be reached and no correct pin number has been entered.. the screen flashs bright blue / black and also turns your sound upto 100%, then a voice says This car is being stolen, please call the police. then a siren.. this is repeated FOREVER. The only way to stop it is to input the correct pin.

    I know if a thief was to try and steal my car, and this thing started going off, it would attract alot of attention

    Very easy to code up, just need your ideas

    That's a great idea although I know I am probably to lazy to want to enter a code every time I get in my car or start my computer.

    You also need some kind of defeat built in if you leave it with a valet.

    Or mechanic, etc.

    Maybe a way to aftr you enter the pin disable it? Then an easy reenable later?

    Who wants to use a PIN every time their car boots though to get the comp working? Not me..

    i think this is an excellent idea and it can be added with an override or enable/disable option and everyones happy. I would also add a valet feature which would alow ....say 1 or 2 boots without requiring pin the automatically requiring the pin on the 3rd boot.

    But what the hell does the valet or the mechanic need the pc for ?????

    Oh that's true.. I always mix these threads with the ones where people want the car to not work if the computer doesn't get a PIN.. just blocking comp access would be good.

    With SteveG's access control and Girder, you can do it.
    Use Girder OnResumeStandBy/OnResumeSuspend to handle hibernate and have girder execute the proggy.
    Also put it in startup folder for cold boot.

    Good Point.

    But I was thinking when Cdr said:

    that he meant when you start the car the computer started automatically and you had to enter the PIN or else....

    I like the idea. The volume option to 100% maybe useless if the amplification is the stock radio (like in my carpc i'm using the aux line), because it can be simply muted; but this can be a good option

    I would prefer to shutdown the CarPc after X wrong Pins, and write the event in a file log, so you can always keep it under control.

    Cheers
    Fabio
