5 ways we make parenting easier!

  1. Minecraft doesn’t count as homework anymore!

    So your kids have homework due and they need to use the internet for it! Fast forward a few hours and they’ve watched 2 films on Netflix, built an entire city with their friends on Minecraft and they’ve barely written the title to their essay. This is where Homework Mode comes in. Just flick the slider, hit ‘start homework mode’ and they’ll be able to access all the sites they need for work but distractions like social media, gaming and movies will be blocked.

  2. Bedtime is now for sleeping!

    Have you ever caught the glow of an iPad coming from your children’s bedroom at night. With HomeHalo you can set the WiFi to go off at a specific time for each child. You can set different times limits for the weekend and you can even extend their time if they need a little longer to finish the last level of their game.

  3. You can be a great parent…even from the pub!

    So you’ve booked the babysitter and you’re heading out with friends for the evening. With a pint in one hand and our app in the other, you’ll be able to manage requests and ensure your kids are off of Netflix and ready for bed on time.

  4. No more looking over their shoulder!

    Naturally, parents worry about what sites their kids are looking at, the problem is constant snooping at their screen can lead to some very stroppy teenagers. With HomeHalo, you can give them the space they need, whilst being sure they’re not accessing anything unsavory. You simply select their age group or the type of sites you want to be blocked, then sit back and reflect on what a wonderful parent you are!

  5. Spend more time on other stuff!

    Once you’ve got your HomeHalo plugged in, you’ll be able to focus more time on your other parental responsibilities, like being a taxi driver and cash machine!

HomeHalo reporting has arrived!

Our fantastic new reporting feature is now available through our app at no extra charge!

We’ve listened to our customers, who tell us that they really want to be able to see which sites their children have visited or have attempted to visit. From today, you’ll be able to view a list of sites that your children have been to in the last day, week or month.

This function gives you the ability to easily identify any problems should they arise, without your children feeling like you’re spying on them. We hope this will also give you added peace of mind that your children aren’t accessing harmful content online.

As you’ll see from the image below, the new function will give you a preview of each site visited and you’ll be given the option to blacklist that site or block the entire category:

Coming very soon we’ll also have a data usage report, which will show you how much data each user has used on certain sites. This will be introduced with our next firmware release. Please be aware that until we introduce this update any data shown will be there as an example.

Shortly you will receive a notification asking you to update your app.

If you have any questions about these new features feel free to give us a call on 0800 228 9393 or email us at info@homehalo.co.uk

Kind regards
