Why KidsBlocker?    Because you care!


The concept of KidsBlocker is to provide an easy process by which to setup and use a solution to control access to the internet.

  • Turn on/off the internet to any or all devices in a home, from any location
  • Provide an internet schedule for any devices in a home
  • Provide internet filtering by device (safe searching)
    To protect from inadvertent inappropriate internet exposure KidsBlocker will manage the ever changing filter lists.
  • Make it as easy as possible to configure and operate

KidsBlocker  allows parents to regain control of their home internet.   

Parents using KidsBlocker say: “My home is calmer now”, “It’s saved my family”, “We now have the confidence to share the online world”, “I feel like a better parent”,"a great study timetabling tool"
 


Most parents are struggling to stay in front of the online technology ‘arms race’ in their home.  Concerned parents wanting to provide a positive and safe online experience for their children need to be better equipped.    In a lot of cases, a positive online experience has given way to awful accidental exposure to inappropriate sites, lack of effective online time management and worrying sleep deprivation.

Parents may not always see it, but efforts to limit their children’s screen time can make a difference.  A new study, published in JAMA Paediatrics, found children get more sleep, do better in school, behave better and see other health benefits when parents limit content and the amount of time their children spend on the computer.

Existing tools to assist parents have been found to be too complicated, difficult to use and ultimately of little value to parents without significant IT skills and time to system manage.

Imagine a world where your homes online devices were easily controlled by your smart phone.  
Where a pre agreed schedule enforced sensible online hours while at the same time providing a filter for unwanted sites.   
Imagine that you could monitor and control online access from wherever you are (office, home or travelling).

KidsBlocker is made up of:

  1. A KidsBlocker Wireless Router (which connects to your existing internet/broadband modem),
  2. A backend cloud server (hosted and managed by us) to provide control to your KidsBlocker router, provide web based access and centrally control filtering, and
  3. A mobile device app, to give you control of your home network from any location.

 

 

 

 

The system will utilise your existing internet modem. Each home device can be individually controlled regardless of the connection (i.e. wireless or wired). Currently KidsBlocker is not integrated with the mobile data network, however it is our intention to do so and we are working towards extending the system.

Planned enhancements being evaluated could include:

  • Applying the same controls to 3G/4G/xG network connections

  • Screen peek - show you what is on any screen
