The last and final item in our Bellyitch’s Favorite Things Giveaway is a router and app to help parents monitor their children’s devices.
If you are planning to get your child a new screen – tablet, phone, gaming system, laptop or computer- for Christmas, you could eliminate the need to be nagging them to turn off their device but using KoalaSafe, a wireless router which is its own network that can schedule a time to turn off the devices, thus turning the internet off.
The Australia-based company recently announced their partnership with curbi, an app which regulates screen time on handheld devices outside the home.
KoalaSafe Family Friendly Router with Parental Controls to easily protect and manage their screen time all year long – at home and on the road.
It has a family-friendly WIFI access point that’s easy to use. Through a simple smartphone interface, parents can set time-limits, site blocking and monitoring of youngsters’ mobile devices, laptops, PlayStations and more, which are connected through KoalaSafe.
Then when a child heads outside to school or a friend’s place, curbi takes over the care with content filtering and app blocking. With just a couple of clicks parent can lock apps, block inappropriate sites and limit screen time.
Together KoalaSafe and curbi are simple to use, giving parents total control over the content their children access from smartphones and tablets at home and on the road. Parents can:
- Monitor, control and set limits for use inside or outside of the home
- Get detailed information about what kids are doing when connected
- Stop offline apps from being used
