remotely ring mac

Hi, in addition to iOS devices, we have deployed new Mac devices. The iOS remote ring feature has previously assisted us in locating iPhones in the office, but we couldn’t find a similar feature on Mac. Is there a way to locate Mac devices in the same way?

    Hi @Udolf,

    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    The remote ring feature is currently unavailable on macOS devices. However, you can execute custom scripts to play sound on Mac remotely. Please keep in mind that the script will only run if the devices are turned on and connected to the internet. Try the bash script given below.

    declare -ir MAX_SECONDS=120
    declare -ir TIMEOUT=$SECONDS+$MAX_SECONDS
    while (( $SECONDS < $TIMEOUT )); do afplay /System/Library/Sounds/Submarine.aiff Done

    You can alter the value of MAX_SECONDS according to your requirement.

    Please note that the script was obtained from third-party Open-Source sites. Hence, Hexnode will not be responsible for any system harm caused by the script's behavior.

    Cheers!
