However, in order for these utilities to function, users need to also install a dedicated app on their phone - those who want to skip this step can try Loupse, as it can be run from any browser, no matter the host OS or platform.
Browser-based remote controller
Another benefit of Loupse is that it does not require any installation, in other words, you do not need to install it on your computer, so no entries are added to your Windows Registry.
You simply launch the app, enter your credentials and your PC can be remotely controlled from any browser - needless to say, if you do not have an account, you will first need to create one, otherwise you will not be able to enjoy the functions of Loupse.
From this point on, everything goes extremely smoothly: you need to open a browser on any device you choose, be it your smartphone, your tablet or your SmartTV, navigate to the app’s website then login with the same username and password you specified when running Loupse.
Remotely shutdown your PC
Once you accessed the online dashboard, you simply need to select the action you want to perform, such as sending a message to the computer or activating the alarm. You can also restart it or lock the screen for a predefined time interval (or until you unlock it via the same dashboard).
Due to Loupse, you can also power off your computer even if you are not at your desk - all it takes is a swipe on your touchscreen device or a mouse click, if you are using another PC to access the online dashboard.
All in all, Loupse has the potential to be a genuine time-saver for all those who want to remotely manage their computers. However, despite being rough around the edges (sometimes you need to try a few times until you succeed in logging to the online dashboard), users can still take it for a spin.
