Manila, Philippines – For most moms, peace of mind is a never-ending
aspiration especially when they have to be away from their families.
This is often the case with celebrity moms who have hectic schedules
and out-of-town work commitments.
The advent of digital and mobile technology has opened up opportunities
for families to connect better and manage the home more efficiently,
among other priceless benefits. However, when left unchecked, digital
platforms can also become an unsafe space especially for children. Young
and digitally savvy moms like Denise Laurel and Isabel Oli-Pratts are
among the celebrity moms who are strong advocates of home security in
this digital age.
Recently, they hosted an intimate mommy bloggers’ event powered
by PLDT Home where they, together with psychologist and expert Michele
Alignay, talked about pressing digital and security concerns at home.
They were joined by other celebrity moms like Camille Pratts and Issa
Litton. During this event, these moms got a chance to know more about
PLDT Home’s digital ecosystem of products specifically designed
to help provide moms with invaluable peace of mind.
There’s the home monitoring system Fam Cam which moms can use
to check and even talk to their kids remotely; the multi-functional
kiddie watch Smart Watch which allows parents to track their kids’
location and get instant notifications when they go beyond a set ‘safe
zone.’ Asia’s Songbird and PLDT Home ambassador Regine Velasquez
and son Nate as well as Eat Bulaga’s Bae-by Baste and Mommy Sheila
are among the thousands of parents and children who are enjoying the
family-friendly benefits of this kiddie gadget.
The latest addition to this suite is the Fam Zone, a product that
enables parents to create a safer internet experience for their children.
It is the country’s first online parental control device which
allows parents to manage their kids’ internet use. They can turn
on the internet filtering feature which screens out sensitive sites
using keywords. Parents can also set alerts and reporting to monitor
their kids’ online activities as well as pre-approve sites that
kids will visit.
As part of PLDT’s Smart Home, a suite of innovative, reliable,
and family-friendly products, the PLDT Fam Cam, Smart Watch and Fam
Zone are designed to give parents “peace of mind” by helping
them feel more secure about the safety of their children especially
when they are away.
These Smart Home devices can be best experienced with the country’s
most powerful broadband, PLDT Home Fibr, which delivers speeds of up
to 1Gbps and with plans now as low as P1,699 per month. Fibr has the
widest coverage in the country and is available in 2.5M homes.
PLDT VP and Home Marketing Director Gary Dujali said, “Working
with real moms is always a great learning experience for us. It helps
us understand them better and make sure that our products truly address
their unique and dynamic needs. Working with celebrity moms like Regine,
Denise, Isabel and Camille also gives us an opportunity to bring our
message to a wider audience so it can benefit more moms.”
