    Hello everybody!

    I open this thread to introduce you "Remote Security", as you can imagine it is a security application that I developed which is already in the Market.

    Remote Security is being warmly welcomed in other countries. I'll post here the application features and a link to its website.

    I hope you like it. Let me know if I can help you, I will be around here.

    Thanks and greetings!

    Vierco.


    Hello Vierco Remote Security


    Installing Remote Security in your phone, you will be able to control your terminal remotely.

    Remote Security controls your phone in case of lost as well as if it is stolen. You will be able to lock remotely your phone, request its location, activate robbery alarm or force a call to a previously designated number.

    In case of the replacement of your sim card, your phone will automatically redirect any outgoing call to a previously designated number by you.

    Remote Security may run in hidden mode, so nobody but you will notice that the application is installed in your phone.

    How it Works?

    You will be able to control your phone simply sending SMS.

    Where to send this messages? There are two options:

    * If your SIM card is already into your phone, you will send the SMS to your own phone number.
    * If a new SIM card has been inserted into your phone, Remote Security will send you a message, to an alternate contact number, with the phone number of the SIM card on your terminal. This is the number you will send the SMS to.

    Note: All messages sent to activate any Remote Security feature should be lower-cased written, with no blank spaces.

    Using and setting up Remote Security is a quick and easy process.

    The first time you execute the application, a secure PIN and an alternate contact phone number will be requested.

    This data will only be requested once, since Remote Security will keep it in memory.


    If you already have installed a software to stop or kill process, like Task killer or task manager, you will have to exclude Remote Security from the killing process list. This is necessary for a proper work of the application

    For android 2.2 users (Froyo): Remote Security do some security checks when the phone is rebooted. For a proper running of this checkings, please install this application into the internal memory of your terminal. Remote Security can be installed into your partitioned SD card only in case you have a Rom that allows applitcations to be installed into a patitioned SD card.


    What is Security Code?



    This is a code chosen by you so the phone recognizes you as the owner of the phone. Lets see an example: to see the location of the phone in case of lost or theft, you will send a sms containing our security code followed by the word where.

    Eg: mycodewhere

    Immediately you will receive a sms with the location, including city and country, where your terminal is.

    You can change your Security Number anytime you want.

    What is Phone Number?



    Remote Security asks you for a phone number. This is the phone number where you will receive all the requested data from your phone, like location or the phone number of the non-authorized sim in your terminal.

    You can change the Phone Number anytime you want.

    Authorized SIMs


    The first time you execute Remote Security on your phone, it will record the SIM already inserted. Remote Security will take this SIM as the owner of the phone. In case you have another SIM card to use in the same terminal, Remote Security can authorize a secondary SIM by inserting the card on the phone or typing the code.

    You can change the authorized SIMs in your terminal anytime you want

    In case of a non-authorized SIM is inserted in your terminal:

    1 Remote Security sends you text message with the phone number of the non-authorized SIM in your phone.

    2 The person using your pone will not be able to make any outgoing call but to a previously designated number by you.


    Note: In case of lost or theft of your terminal is highly recommendable to ask your mobile company a copy of your SIM card. Doing this you will keep your phone number since the person using your terminal will not be able to make any call from your phone number.

    As you can imagine, once you receive a copy of your lost SIM card, you can ask Remote Security to the send the requested data to your own phone number.


    Available Options:


    Lock:

    Lock:

    Send a SMS with your Security Number followed by the word lock

    Eg: mycodelock

    Unlock:
    Send a SMS with your Security Number followed by the word unlock

    Eg:mycodeunlock




    Location:

    Using this option you will receive a SMS with the location of your phone.

    If the GPS is already active in your phone, Remote Security will locate the phone via GPS. In case of GPS is not active or is not receiving satellite signal, the location will be done by triangulating the phone signal.

    To query the location:

    Send a SMS with your Security Number followed by the word where

    Eg: mycodewhere




    Call me:

    If you want to contact the person using your phone, the option call me will force a call from your terminal to a previously designated number by you.

    Once the terminal receive the command, it will emit a sound warn, vibrate and notify it is going to call the owner of the phone. Then the terminal will proceed to call.

    To request a call:

    Send a SMS with your Security Number followed by the word callme

    Eg: mycodecallme




    Alarm:

    This option may be specially usefull if you think your phone could be near you.

    Using the option alarm your terminal will play a loud robbery alarm which cant be quieter or muted. No matter if your phone is already muted or the volume is low. This alarm will also lock the phone.

    To activate the alarm:

    Send a SMS with your Security Number followed by the word alarm

    Eg: mycodealarm

    To deactivate the alarm:

    Send a SMS with your Security Number followed by the Word stopalarm

    Eg:mycodestopalarm
