In the same way that we are bringing sanity to families with FamilyTech, Ily is making communication easier for the whole family. Here is a quick rundown of our Tech Tool of the Month.
When it comes to family communication, we live in a world where it should be easier than ever. But the truth is, especially with younger kids, it just isn’t as seamless as it should be. As more and more families ditch their landlines in favor of cell phones, there is one thing that we forget about, communication with our kids when adults aren’t around, or cell phones are dead.
Since 95% of kids under 10 don’t own a cell phone yet, a option like Ily makes family communication easy. It’s not a tablet and it’s not meant to be mobile, instead, the 8-inch touchscreen is meant to be setup in your home in a designated area. It’s equipped with a touchscreen, a camera, a microphone, a speaker, proximity sensors as well as temperature and quality of air sensors. It also has a separate handset for voice calls.
And even though it can replace your home phone in many ways for kids, it’s actually quite different. Ily is a closed network, unlike a home phone which can be dialed up by anyone at any time. Thanks to the closed network, no strangers can reach your Ily device, ensuring that you are the gatekeeper of communication in your home.
It’s easy to use for young kids, grandparents, and everyone in between. With Ily you can make video or voice calls, send a voicemail, text message, or use the photo sharing option.
