Do smart moms need smart homes?
No matter what your IQ, street smarts, or Sudoku solving skills, as a parent you could use an extra pair of everything – hands, eyes, ears, and – oh yeah – a couple extra superpowers.
Without getting technical, let’s just say that an automated or smart home offers all that – and more.
A smart home connects smart devices and systems in your home and makes everyday life easier, especially for parents. Let’s count the ways. A smart home can help you to:
Keep an Eye on the Kids
- Monitor security camera systems, so you know what the kids are up to.
- Receive alerts when kids are in off-limit zones
- Automate the kids’ routines; turn off the TV, music system, and gaming consoles; turn on the study lights!
- Help put the kids to bed – and get them up in the morning – with lights and music
Practice Safety First and Always
- Remotely control the locks on your doors. Great when you want to allow on-demand access; someone forgot to lock the door, or locked themselves out.
- Let cabinet and drawer sensors alert you to when kids have accessed places with toxic substances, dangerous tools, etc.
- Use automated systems to control the thermostat, lights, appliances, etc.
Create a Fun Zone
- Program lights, music, action!
