We’re delighted to announce iKydz as an official partner and to offer you the HomeConnect device. The online parenting solution is now going to be part of our home protection service. Through iKydz, you can filter out sensitive content and manage children’s time online.
Being a parent with young kids in this day and age can be stressful, as so many kids are part of this connected world. 80% of children has a device connected to the internet.
The image (below) shows how kid’s online usage can change in just one year. Social media apps like Facebook and Twitter heavily decreasing last year, while newcomers like Fortnite and Roblox can quickly become some of the most popular online past times out of nowhere. As a parent it really is hard to stay on top of everything, but now you with your HomeConnect device, you we’ll take care of it for you.
iKydz have proven to reduce internet usage by children in Ireland by 16% in one year, so they can focus more on their homework, playing with friends (in the real world) or simply getting a better night sleep.
This new partnership offers the iKydz service as a convenient add-on to our current home monitoring service. “Allowing parents to take their children’s security into the digital age, with an easy to use internet control platform naturally aligns with our current offering and was a key driver for this partnership,” said Colm Daly, CEO, HomeSecure.ie.
