Putting Working Mothers Minds at Rest

Protecting my home, my children, my mind while working?

You are at work and the school phones and says that your young child is quite sick. Leaving straight away is impossible as you are in an extremely important meeting. You call your friend to see if they can do the pick up. They drive them home and they have to wait for you to get home from work.

Solution

Using a Wotch Security and Automation package, you can control your door from your smart device.

Your friend can text you when they arrive at the house and then you open the door for them to walk in.

Alternatively, you can give your friend a code for the front door and they can open the door for themselves. Your sick child will then be comfortable in their own surroundings and be waiting for mum. We all know that when people are sick, they just want their mums.

You are working at a location that is several kilometers away from home. Your teenager texts to say that he / she is not feeling well. You know that you can’t get there quickly so what do you do?

Solution

You give your permission to the school to allow your teenager to walk home from school.  You also tell them to text or phone you when they get home safely. The time goes by slowly as you wait and wait.  Your child then arrives home, however they have left their front door key and phone at home this morning as they were running late for school.

There is no spare key under a rock etc. because the last time you tried that, a burglar found it, broke in and caused significant damage. So you are worried sick and can do nothing but wait or leave work and try and drive home calmly, not knowing what is going on.

If you have a Wotch Security and Automation package you can alleviate the stress. You can open the door or garage door from your smart device and let your teenager in the house.

Your teenagers walk home from school everyday. You ask them not to have friends over while you are not there. Simple rule!

However on a couple of occasions they have ignored the rule and you worry that something may happen. You trust them but you just need peace of mind while you aren’t there.

Solution

Having a Wotch Security and Automation package gives you peace of mind.

As soon as there is movement near your front door you will receive an alert to your smart device. You can look and see who is making that movement. Hopefully, it is just your teenagers arriving home safe and sound. However, if it is not then you can automatically see who else is there. Then it is up to you as to what you do next.

The rule in your house is that your children cannot swim in the pool unsupervised. It is a normal day; your children are at home alone doing their homework before you get home from work. However, it is a boiling hot scorcher of a day and they are sick of sitting inside in the heat.

They have a great idea about a quick dip in the pool and tell each other that no one will know and it wont be a problem.

Solution

When you have a Wotch Security and Automation package,  a wireless door sensor could be on the pool gate. As soon as it is opened you receive a notification on your smart device. You can also have a camera facing the pool where you can see your children swimming. Again, peace of mind for the working mum.

“Protecting my home, my children, my mind while working”, is indeed a very real thought process for every working mother. It is important to consider that the cost of a Wotch Security and Automation system is relatively low when considering the safety of our children.
