LONDON, UK – 21 October 2014 – Atama, a UK developer and manufacturer of connected devices, today launches the next generation version of its Sesame Bluetooth Smart key fob, designed to automatically lock Mac computers when users walk away from their screen. Ideal for office workers handling confidential data, busy parents wanting to stop children going online without supervision and students. Sesame 2 prevents unauthorised access to important files, private emails, personal Facebook and Twitter accounts, and disables any other applications open on the users desktop when in a public place. Sesame 2 is available now from Atama’s Online Store for USD 49 / £39.95 inc VAT / €49.95 inc VAT and the AppleOnline Store in Europe.
Sesame 2 also features an iTunes and Spotify pause/play function that allows users to temporarily mute music playing until they return to their screen when the volume will be restored, and can also set messages or Skype’s status to ‘away’ until the computer is reactivated. With support for Apple Script, Sesame 2 can interact with most Mac Apps and perform actions when the user walks away or comes back.
The key fob’s external redesign offers a slimmer 6mm thick device and weighs just 10 grams. The Sesame 2 also offers shorter locking distances and lets users adjust the sensitivity of the key fob to lock their Mac screen. Further enhancements offer longer battery life, and increased Bluetooth signal stability.
If used when remote working, the two-factor authentication offers additional security by unlocking the computer through the combination of a system password and close presence of the Sesame 2 key fob.
