Whether you're excited to see the kids finally go back to school or dreading what a new school year will do to your schedule, we can show you how your Digital Life system can help you get back in the swing of things.

Save your sanity

Those first few weeks back to school can lead to busy mornings and leave you wondering if you remembered to do simple things like close the garage door or lock up when you leave. 

Digital Life can help, and we'll show you how. Here are a couple of simple programs you can set up to make your mornings a bit more stress-free: 

"Locked-Up" Program
"Did I Close the Garage Door?" Program

Package required: Door

After-school update 

Keeping track of the kids after school can be challenging when you're stuck at work or out running errands. But your Digital Life system can be there to lend a helping hand in just a few simple steps. 

Try creating unique door codes for each of your children, and your system will text you when they've used them to open the door after school. 

You could even give our "Keeping Tabs" program a try, and your system can take a photo or video every time someone comes in or out of your home. 

Packages required: Camera, Door

The enforcer

Want to make sure the kids are doing their homework or chores instead of playing video games or watching TV? We've got just the program: "Stop the Electronic Argument!" 

With this handy program, you can have your smart plug scheduled to turn off the TV, or disable any electric device plugged into it, during certain after-school hours each week. That way, your kids can focus on what they're supposed to be doing instead of being distracted by everything they're not supposed to be doing.
