Understanding Time Periods
PC PATROL features the ability to divide the day into three parts, or Time Periods. Set the start times for these three periods, labeled "Morning", "Noon" and "Night", and the power of your security and surveillance is increased dramatically.
Having three time periods enables you to page different pagers depending on the time of the day, and have sound effects that are most appropriate to that time of the day.
Here are a few examples:
Noon period - You might be at work so as well as paging yourself, you might page a neighbour or your apartment complex security guard.
Night period - Page yourself to wake you up, as well as all of your neighbors and/or a guard or doorman.
Noon period - a vacuum cleaner, washing machine, TV, children squabbling or at play.
Night period - people in conversation, dinner being prepared, TV noises, you waking up and calling "who's there?".
These are only a few suggestions for sounds to record using the Windows 95 Sound Recorder.
Please, use your imagination here and record many, many sounds. The idea is to have anyone outside or entering the area that PC PATROL is protecting, hear the exact noises that should be in the area if you are present. Be creative and dramatically improve the level of your security. It is up to you!
