@home Alternatives

    @home is described as 'tiny convenience utility, that knows when you are at home (based on your wireless network name) and prevents your computer from locking the screen. When you are away from home, your normal locking idle times apply'. There are nine alternatives to @home for Mac, Windows, Android and F-Droid. The best alternative is Amphetamine, which is free. Other great apps like @home are Don't Sleep (Free), Caffeine for Mac (Free), NoDoze (Free, Open Source) and AntiSleep (Freemium).
