IoT Gadget That Make Life Easier
Parenting can be a joyful experience, as you watch your little ones grow and flourish.
However, what can’t be denied is that it’s a tough job, as there are always a million and one things to do. From cooking to cleaning to changing nappies, parents have a seemingly endless list of jobs to get done, so having a helping hand is always going to be a welcome prospect. So, if you are soon to be parents or right in the middle of it, you might be pleased to discover that there are a number of ways that you can use smart technology to make your life easier.
So, sit back, put the comforter down for a second and read on as we take you through a few IoT gadgets that can take some of the worry and stress out of taking care of a child.
Gadget #1 The Smart Lock
If children are anything, they’re unpredictable and expecting them to always shut doors when they’re supposed to can be something of a folly. Smart locks not only send a notification to your smartphone that a door is unexpectedly open, so that you can shut it, but it can also be set up to lock the doors after a specified time period – such as ten minutes after arriving home.
You can protect your windows in the same way too, so you’ll even know straight away if your child tries to sneak out against your wishes!
Gadget #2 The Smart Doorbell
If your child is old enough to be at home on their own, you might still be uncomfortable with them answering the door to strangers. A smart doorbell can not only let you know if someone has come to the door whilst you’re out, but it also allows you to deal with the query yourself, rather than getting your teenage son or daughter to do it for you. Smart doorbells, which also come with built in cameras, can let you see who’s at the door, giving you the information you need to decide if it is safe for your kid to open the door or not.
Gadget #3 The Smart Camera
Whilst they’re by no means new to the IoT market, smart cameras are a useful tool for parents, especially when it comes to newborns and toddlers. Sleep can be a really scarce commodity with young children, so being able to keep a close eye on your little one from your own room using a camera via WiFi is really handy, particularly as some come with speakers so that you can talk to your baby and calm them down from the comfort of your own bed!
This is just a small sample of what’s possible with smart home IoT devices. As well as those above, there is geofencing tech, smart thermostats, smart speakers, smart light bulbs, smart shades…and the list goes on. This smorgasbord of technology can be used to create an environment that makes parenting easier. Notice we didn’t say “easy” there, as not even IoT can take away all of the challenges of parenthood.
