Diapers, mobile, onsies, home control system? Yes, you read that right. Every new parent should have a home control system on their list of must have items for baby’s arrival. Why? Simple. Home control simplifies and if there’s one thing a new parent desires it’s simplicity.
As a relatively new mom, I remember all too well one of the most challenging, complex tasks of having a new baby…getting them to sleep. The endless bouncing, dancing and rocking, and then that magical moment when they fall asleep. What a beautiful moment. That is until I would realize the shades were open from that morning and I was trapped in the rocking chair under my sleeping baby. If you’re a parent, you understand why I was panicking at this point. You never move with a sleeping baby in your arms, no matter what. Inevitably though, the sun coming through the window would make its way over my peacefully sleeping baby and he would stir, and then wake, and the process to get him to sleep would start all over again.
How does one simplify this problem? A home control system will allow you to control your shades from your smart phone, tablet or remote. So when your little one falls asleep in your arms, you need not panic. Simply close the shades with the touch of a button. The shades close, virtually silently, and your little one is none the wiser.

Another problem I often ran into was having my little one fall asleep in my arms with his bedside lamp on. With home control you can easily shut off the lamp without leaving your chair. Simple.

The temperature of the house, and more importantly the temperature of my son’s room, was always a hot topic in our house (no pun intended!) Even now that my son is growing up, I am famous for getting comfortable and then realizing I’m too hot or too cold. Then I sit there, comfortable in my spot but too hot/too cold and debate with myself. Do I get up and adjust the temperature, or continue to be uncomfortable? Inevitably I decide on the only logical option…I ask my husband to go and adjust the temperature for me. J With home control though, I can avoid his grumbling by just adjusting the temperature using the app on my phone. Simple.
