Secure Filtering, Monitoring, and Access Control
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 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.
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 has a very large list of features. Below is a list of SentryPC's extensive features, organized by category for easy browsing. Click on a category to view its feature-set.
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 the computer, programs, and specific websites. 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 Control Panel
SentryPC gives you 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 when the next week begins. Maximum time limits can be set for each day as well. [screenshot]
- Temporary Full Access
If you need to grant a user full access to their user account without any filtering and time restrictions limiting their usage you can quickly grant them temporary full access.

| Content Filtering Features
SentryPC has a very powerful, extensive filtering engine. You can essentially choose a daily schedule of 'allowable' times for virtually any program on your computer. SentryPC can also filter website visits, intercept important keystroke phrases typed by users (like addresses, phone numbers, names), and restrict chat client usage.
- Application Filtering
Filter any application on your computer by having SentryPC block it during specific time frames, or whenever the program is executed. [screenshot]
- Website Filtering
Filter specific websites from being visited, or have SentryPC block all website visits - except for those you allow. Filters can be put into effect during specific time schedules, or whenever the website is visited. [screenshot]
- Chat Filtering
Block AOL, AIM, AIM Express, AOL Chat, Yahoo, ICQ, MSN, Excite, Trillian, GoogleTalk, Skype, Xfire, Mirc, and Odigo for each user. [screenshot]
- Keystroke Filtering
Enter specific words or phrases that cannot be entered by users. For instance, enter your children's name, address, phone number, or credit card number and whenever they are typed the window will be closed instantly. This ensures confidential information cannot be shared with others through email, websites, etc. [screenshot]
- User Notification
You have the option to alert the user that they were restricted from doing a filtered activity, when the event arises.

| Activity Monitoring Features
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
Record every single keystroke typed by users - logged by the application they were typed in, and when. [screenshot]
- 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. [screenshot]
- Application 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. [screenshot]
- Chat Conversation Logging
Log all AOL, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, and MSN Messenger chat conversations made by users of your computer. [screenshot]
- 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. [screenshot]
- Windows Logging
Log the title of each window users interact with while using your computer. Application paths are logged with the window as well. [screenshot]
