Using a Smart Home as a Parent

Welcoming children into your household is one of the most special and exciting times of life. It’s also one of the greatest challenges you’ll ever undertake.

Help will come in many forms: family, friends, the new social networks you’ll make as parents. It also comes in the form of technology that makes the everyday work of parenting easier. From electric bottle warmers to space-age stroller designs, you’ll soon discover technical fixes for every challenge.

One of these is a smart home. A technology that not only protects your home, but also automates it to free up your time or other tasks. It’s hassle-free to install and easy to expand with new equipment, making it an outstanding parenting investment that keeps on giving as your children grow.

Comfort with Smart Heating


With a newborn. your focus is on keeping your baby happy and comfortable, and knowing if anything happens, as it happens. Comfort starts with the GoKonnect Smart Thermostat and its remote control and learning capabilities which will help you ensure the perfect temperature wherever your baby sleeps.

Video monitoring in your nursery helps keep you connected to your baby no matter where you are in the house. When they nap, you too can catch up on sleep without worrying. You could even set up motion detection rules to see if anything happens, you’ll know instantly.

Unexpected Activity

When those baby steps turn into toddling and exploration, childproofing everything within four feet of the floor is the name of the game. You can’t contain your toddler’s curiosity—nor would you want to—but you can stay aware of what they’re exploring by installing contact sensors around your home. Thanks to instant activity alerts from when a sensor is triggered, you’ll have a sixth sense for trouble—whether that’s playing in the fridge, opening the front door or getting up and wandering around at 3 a.m.

Arming Reminders


Getting your kids ready for school, preparing their lunches and getting ready for work is an everyday struggle. Having a smart home will make this easier.

With a GoKonnect Smart Home, you can secure your home with the touch of a button using our customizable “Scenes”. In the event that you’re running late and you forget, your smart home will remind you to secure your home.

You can also automate your home to take care of things while you’re away. Geo-services can tell your smart thermostat to turn down the heating when you leave for work and to heat up the house when you finish for the day.

Smart home for the whole family


With a GoKonnect smart home, you can create multiple users for each family member, give each of them their own user code and give them access to smart home features, like controlling the thermostat, managing recorded clips and arming and disarming the home. They will then be able to access your smart home remotely, talk to visitors at the front door and respond to an emergency, remotely.

Go on Vacation!


An empty home is an opportune time for a burglar to break in. You can check in on pets and loved ones while you’re away for the summer. Whether you’re on vacation traveling round the world., GoKonnect makes every trip more relaxing.

Professional monitoring gives you peace of mind knowing that while your home is empty and you can access it remotely, there is an extra pair of eye keeping watch.
