Keep Your Family Connected with Connected Mom


With school back in session, moms and dads might be feeling a bit overwhelmed but tech lifestyle expert Carley Knobloch has five smart ideas that can help busy parents. She’s partnered with some amazing brands that will help stressed-out parents everywhere.

Safety is always a big concern and smart devices are helping around the house, starting with the ring door view cam. This is a smart doorbell camera that you install yourself on any door that has an existing peephole and is a great option whether you live in an apartment or a single-family home. It features detection, two-way talk, and knock detection.

As parents we need all the help we can get in the kitchen and the Sensate Faucet with Kohler Konnect is the ultimate kitchen assistant. Simple voice commands turn the water on and off and even dispense measured amounts of water all while you’re off prepping other parts of dinner. It will even keep an eye on your water usage, which you can monitor in the Kohler Konnect app. It’s available in four gorgeous finishes which means there’s one that will be right for your home.

Having a teen driver is stressful but Carley says there is the technology that can help give parents peace of mind. Now there are products like Pioneers rDrive , it’s powered by Lo/Jack and offers peace of mind to all of us stressed-out parents. By monitoring the driving habits of our teens it has great features like vehicle tracking, speed notification, and crash detection. All powered by Lo/Jack your teenager will have live agent assistance if the car is stolen or in an accident. Another tough lesson is teaching teens how to be financially responsible and I’m sure every parent wants to teach their kids to build great financial habits especially before they head off to college. Capital One’s teen checking account and debit card is a fantastic tool for parents to help teenagers learn to manage their money, they can set up budgets and savings goals directly from the app while parents can keep an eye on things and offer guidance.
