24/7 Remote Access in the Cloud
SentryPC is completely cloud-based. Just login to your secure online account to view logs and change settings. Your account is available to you at all times regardless if the actual computer is 'online' or not. You can access your account from any device with a web-browser — be it another computer or laptop, phone, tablet, or other no matter where in the world you may be!
- Access anywhere anytime
Your secure online account is accessible at any time from anywhere in the world. Use any internet-enabled device to login, view logs, and change settings. Your cloud account is updated in real-time and any changes you make are processed immediately. screenshot
- Centralized management of multiple PC's and users
Unlike other software where you need to view one computer or user at a time, SentryPC shows you ALL computers and users at once. You can search, sort, and filter the results how you wish. From your online account you can view logs and manage settings for an unlimited number of computers and users without any hassle. screenshot
- Real-time activity viewing and management
Your cloud account updates in real-time as activities happen. View keystrokes, chats, websites, programs, games, and more as they are happening. Any content filtering or time management changes you make will be applied in real-time as well. screenshot
- Top usage reports
Besides your normal logs you also have access to top usage reports. These give a quick overview of various activites and usage within your account. For example, the applications report shows the top used applications, sorted by user, including the amount of times it was accessed and for how long it was. We currently offer the following reports : user overview, alerts, applications, chats, events, files, keystrokes, locations, print jobs, sessions, websites, and windows. screenshot
Activity Monitoring & Recording
SentryPC includes extensive activity monitoring and recording of virtually everything users may do on the computer. Every activity recorded includes the exact date and time the event occurred as well as the duration of the activity. This detailed reporting system is necessary for preventing harmful and/or unwanted use of the computer and Internet all while showing you exactly what users were doing while using the computer. All of the monitoring features listed below can be turned on/off for any user of the computer — this allows you to monitor only certain activities, all of them, or none at all.
- Alert logging
Every alert that occurs will be recorded along with the activity blocked and its type. Types include application, website, and keystroke. These are actions that are blocked due to the content filtering rules you have in place for the user. screenshot
- Application usage logging
Log every application or game 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 opened, or if it is just running in the background idle. screenshot
- Chat conversation logging
Log all AOL, AIM, ICQ, MSN Messenger, Skype, and Yahoo chat conversations made by users of your computer. Includes the messenger name, sender, length of the chat, and timestamp. screenshot
- Clipboard logging
The clipboard is what Windows uses to store copy/paste content. All content copied to the clipboard is recorded along with the computer, user, window title it was used, date/time it happened, and the full content of the clipboard. screenshot
- Events timeline
The events timeline includes all types of different events performed by users in one listing. Easily view what users did what in chronological order. Events include applications, websites, windows, blocked activities, location changes, idle activity, monitoring activity, and much more. screenshot
- File activity logging
All file activity is recorded including the action, filename, and timestamp. Actions include copied, created, deleted, printed, and renamed. screenshot
- Keystrokes typed

- Portable drive logging
Whenever a portable drive is detected as being connected to the computer it will be recorded along with the computer, user, drive letter/name, and date/time it was detected. This is especially useful for seeing who used a thumb drive and when, but all 'portable' drives will be detected. screenshot

SentryPC can take snapshots of your desktop at set intervals of time, allowing you to visually see what is happening. The screenshot viewer also has a built in slideshow and controls for easy viewing. screenshot

Every website visited is recorded along with the start time, stop time, and how much time the user interacted with the website during that time. screenshot
- Window usage logging
Log the title of each window users interact with while using your computer. screenshot
Content Filtering & Restriction
Another important aspect of SentryPC is its extensive content filtering features. Filter applications, games, chats, keywords, and websites on a per user basis. Select on what days, and what specific hours of the day, the filter you define is allowed or blocked. All content filtering features have their own additional options such as enable/disable, alert user, close browser, etc. You can even setup automatic alerts by email to notify you instantly when a user activity has been blocked.
- Alert notifications by email
If you wish, SentryPC can automatically alert you instantly via email whenever an 'alert' activity happens such as blocked applications, chats, keywords, and websites. Select which activities you want to be alerted by email, and how often, for each user. screenshot
- Application filtering
- Chat filtering
Block or filter many of the popular messaging applications available today. SentryPC supports AIM, AOL, Excite, gTalk, ICQ, mIRC, MySpace IM, Odigo, Skype, Trillian, XFire, and Yahoo. screenshot
- Keyword and phrase filtering
Enter specific words or phrases that cannot be entered by users. For instance, enter your children's 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, and other forms of communication. screenshot
- Security options
Security options allow you to enable or disable access to various activities for each user. These include : disable access to the computer entirely, bootkeys, clipboard, clock, control panel, desktop, external drives, logoff, mouse, network, run, start menu, start menu change, shutdown, taskbar, and task manager. screenshot
- Website filtering (categories)
For quick and easy website filtering we offer category filtering. Filter entire categories of websites for specific users in one click. We currently offer the following categories : adult, dating, drugs, file sharing, gambling, gaming, porn, sex, shopping, social, and weapons. We also offer word categories which will block the website when offending words are found on the page. These categories include : adult, profane, and racism. The sensitivity of this filter (number of offending words found that triggers a block) is controlled by you. screenshot
- Website filtering (user-defined)
In addition to category filtering you can also specify your own website urls to allow or block during specific hours of each day of the week. Enter any website address you wish. screenshot example filter
Time Management & Scheduling
One of the most important features of SentryPC is its time management ability. For each user account of the computer you can specify on what hours on what days they can access the computer. In addition to this schedule you may also set a 'maximum allowed' time for each day and the week as a whole. For instance, you can allow access to the computer on Monday from 8am to 8pm, but only allow a maximum of 4 hours of use between those times.
- Time management
Enable or disable time management for any user. Specific maximum hours of allowed usage for each day of the week and the week as a whole. Choose what day your scheduling will reset as well as if you wish to alert the user their time is running out. screenshot
- Daily scheduling
You can schedule what hours the computer can be used for every day of the week. screenshot
Remote Installation & Stealth Operation
SentryPC can be remotely installed without physical presence needed for installation. The install happens instantly and the computer and its users will be available in your online account where you can view logs and change settings. You can also remotely uninstall SentryPC through your online account, again, without physical presence necessary.
- Remote deployment and installation
You have a few different options when it comes to installing SentryPC :
- Email deployment
Send the install file by email to the remote computer. It only needs to be executed for installation to occur — there are no confirmations, dialogs, or anything else required.
- LAN / Network deployment
Easily deploy over a network through network shares or logon scripts.
- Physical deployment
Physically install yourself by executing the install file on the desired computer(s).
- Remote uninstall
Uninstall SentryPC remotely through your online account from anywhere in the world. Just choose the computer and click uninstall. screenshot
- Cloaked installation
The installation module that is executed on your PC will install a copy of itself that is hidden so it cannot be disrupted/removed. The created module file you use to install SentryPC on the computer is able to be discarded and deleted without affecting the installation.
- Invisible / stealth operation
SentryPC is designed to be invisible and secure. Using minimal CPU processing cycles, SentryPC is not visible in any way to the user, and records and updates all logs and settings without any user notification. SentryPC does not reveal itself to the user on your desktop or Program Files folder and will continue to run when your computer is restarted. It is important to note that for 'true' stealth operation you should not enable the optional 'user alerts' in your settings such as alerting a user their allowed time is about to expire.
