With Back-to-School season upon us it’s officially time for rushed mornings, forgotten lunch and the dreaded homework. So in order to make the transition back to school life a little less painful, we’ve gathered a list of smart gadgets to take a few speed bumps out of the back to school road.


Be There, Even When You’re Not

Wi-Fi Cameras are great year round, but for parents who like to check in on the kids from the office, they’re especially handy during the school season. With D-Link Wi-Fi Cameras, you can check in on the family anytime right from your smartphone or tablet device to make sure they’re alright. Many Wi-Fi Cameras even have 2-way audio so you can even give a quick reminder to spend less time playing Wii (or whatever kids these days are in to) and more time on geometry.

Lock Smart

With Schlage locks you no longer need to worry about the kids losing their house keys or wonder whether leaving a hidden key for emergencies is too risky. In fact, with Schlage you don’t have to worry about keys at all! Everyone in your family can have their own code which they can use to come and go. An added benefit to keyless entry is that you’ll know exactly who is coming and going and when, with push alerts on your phone. And if you need to let someone without a code into the house, you can do so right from your mobile device.


With a few strategically placed Wi-Fi Smart Plugs you can make mornings and school nights easier. A Wi-Fi Smart Plug is essentially a smart outlet for your home. When you plug a device into a Smart Plug, you can turn it on and off right from your mobile device or set simple on/off schedules. Set up a few throughout the house for your lights and schedule them to turn off at the kid’s bedtime and on in the morning so you’re not waking up to a dark house. Even consider adding one to the kids rooms so when they need that extra push to get out of bed you can turn a light on right from your phone. Use a Wi-Fi Smart Plug throughout the day as well to check to see if you left a light on or even to turn to Crockpot on or off for dinner (Check out  my favorite Crockpot Recipe here)!

Know When Things Are Moving


Wi-Fi Motion Sensors are devices that plug right into spare outlets in your home and alert you with push or text notifications when they detect motion. With a Wi-Fi Motion sensor set up near the front door, you can receive a push or text notification when your kids get in from school. Motion sensors are also great for making sure the kids don’t go anywhere or get into anything they’re not supposed to while you’re out. Set up motion sensors in off limits rooms or areas so you can receive push alerts on your mobile phone when they detect movement.

Keep it Cool

A smart way to save money on your energy and make sure you don’t come home to a house that feels like the center of Dante’s Inferno is with the Honeywell Thermostat. With the Honeywell Thermostat you can remotely monitor and control your thermostat from anywhere with your mobile device and make sure the house is the right temp for when the kids get home or just make sure they’re not messing with it while you’re gone. In any case, it provides an efficient way to control your home’s temperate and save money.


Have the Power of Wi-Fi

For Back-to-School you want to make sure you’ve got the Wi-Fi power necessary to handle all the demands of kids working on projects, checking email and streaming movies and gaming (just because school’s in session doesn’t mean you’ve got to cut out all the fun activities). One great feature of D-Link Wi-Fi Routers is the ability to set schedules and curfews so when it’s bed time you can limit Wi-Fi access to the kid’s devices and even block certain websites to make sure they’re focusing on school stuff rather than Facebook.
