The Essential Smart Home Tips For New Parents

Becoming a new parent is an exciting time in anyone’s life. It begins with welcoming home your newborn for the first time, the family visitors calling to welcome your new arrival into the world, and of course the middle-of-the-night feeding times. Sometimes when your little ones have just nodded off for their midday nap, any little noise will wake them up and then you have to start the putting them to sleep process all over again.

Traditional home security systems act as a responsive action within your home. Now there is a better way. The future of Smart Home Security is a proactive system that helps you in a number of ways - including some Smart Parenting features. We can assist you with unexpected wake-ups from naps, ensuring the perfect ambient temperature is always right, and having the ability to check in on your loved ones, day or night. We have three essentials which make your Smart Home System a Smart Parenting System.

1: A Smarter Video Doorbell

We know how excited the grandparents can be when the newborn arrives home for the first time. However, if you have just spent the last hour getting the baby to sleep, the last thing you need is the doorbell ringing and waking them up. Our Video Doorbell solves this problem with the option of a ‘silent mode’. This way, when the grandparents ring the doorbell, your phone will buzz instead. You can open our Smart Home App to view who’s at the door and quietly let them in.

2: Smarter Thermostat

As any new parent knows, newborns find it difficult to keep their body temperature regulated at such a young age. This can make sleeping an issue, in turn making it even more difficult for new parents to catch some shut-eye. Knowing you have to get up in the middle of the night to check that the baby’s temperature is perfect can be unsettling. The GoKonnect Smart Home System can make life a little easier.

As part of your Smart Home System, you can adjust the heating from your bed, saving you having to get up in the middle of the night. A Smart Thermostat works with the rest of your system. You can set schedules to turn the heating up or down, any time of day or night, right from your smartphone. Or manually adjust the temperature in your home with one touch of a button on your Smartphone or tablet when things get a little comfortable for your family. This also means no more getting up in the middle of the night to adjust the heating and running the risk of waking the little ones.

3: Smart HD Indoor Camera

Newborns wont stay cute little babies for long. Soon they will be crawling, climbing, and rolling around all hours of the day and night. With a GoKonnect Smart HD Indoor Camera, you can check in on your loved ones at any time. Not only can you Live Stream your home, you can also set Video Motion Detection. If in the middle of the night, your little ones decide they want to go for a wander, you will receive a real-time notification to your smartphone, allowing you to check in. With a new software update coming soon, you can also speak to your toddler live from your phone, comforting them before they settle back to sleep.

If you feel our Smart Home System can help you, and your family would benefit from a Smart Home Security & Smart Automation System in your home, contact us to discuss the options.
