Technology for Online Curfews Helps Families Establish Good, Informed Online Habits
BoundaryBox™ gives parents the ability to control all the networked devices in their homes while also educating the whole family about internet safety, reasonable family limits on internet access and other related topics of importance. This technology solves family conflicts over online limits with education and control, not monitoring and filtering.
LogicHotspot, a WIFI Service Provider with proven time control router technology and SOLOS, a leading British Columbia educator of children and parents on internet safety, have combined their specialties to give parents control of their home network and give children and parents up-to-date educational tools to control their online lives. BoundaryBox gives parents the ability to control the access to each device connected to the home network by controlling the network itself - before each device goes online. In addition to allowing the network’s administrator to set time limits for each user, BoundaryBox provides age and audience appropriate educational tips to teach kids how to be safer online.
“Rather than monitoring and filtering, which are not effective in defending our children, BoundaryBox provides time limits and informative links tips to educate them to be safer online,” says Merlyn Horton, a former youth worker who founded SOLOS to promote the safe and responsible use of all forms of digital communications and social media through education that is research-based and pro-technology.
“While you will ultimately never be able to control what they access on line, we think that a tool to allow parents to control how and when their family access the Internet in their home is one significant tool that CAN make a difference,” added Hans Looman, developer of Logic HotSpot’s WIFI control system.
With a planned Go Live date in September of 2013, BoundaryBox is using Indiegogo, an online fundraising site, to raise capital to develop, produce and launch their innovative product.
