How it Works

Daytripper comes in two parts: a Transmitter (TX) and a Receiver (RX).

Mount the TX in the path of incoming threat. Plug RX into your computer.

When motion is detected, RX will press Win + M and instantly hide what you're doing.

Alternatively, it can also lock your PC or execute a custom script.



  • Can detect motion within 120cm (4 ft).

  • Scan rate: 6Hz on battery, 30Hz while powered. Customisable with included software.

  • Configurable parameters to suit your particular needs.

  • 50-hour battery life, rechargeable via USB-C.

  • Works out-of-box with Windows, compatible with all major OSs.
