Smartphones and computers offer children the world on a screen—a place where they can let their
imaginations roam while sharpening their mental agility and academic ability. What’s more, children can
access school assignments directly on the Internet and connect with friends through social media.
And then there’s the problem of managing “screen time”: no one wants their kids spending all their free
time sitting in front of a computer. Fortunately, you can avoid these kinds of problems and more—by
installing Salfeld Child Control software or app on all devices that your children use.
Multiple time limits
Child Control determines how long the computer and smartphone may be used by the children per
day. This can also be set as a weekly or monthly limit. Once the time limit is reached, the computer
shuts down automatically and the smartphone displays a block screen after multiple warnings set up by you,
which every child understands. Our observation: While there are always objections and discussions among parents and children, the clear time limit
set by the software is usually accepted without grumbling.
The PC program or app can also be configured so that it only starts predefined programs or apps after
the specified time has elapsed. Yes, even an automatic time bonus for learning programs is possible.
The Internet is undoubtedly a lot of fun. Many parents are afraid that their children will accidentally find themselves
on "bad" sites. The program and app make it possible to set web filters that filter out
unwanted sites by category or by age. Or just set a predefined list of allowed sites. That way, all others sites are then off limits.
Parents also have the option of restricting individual websites for a certain period of time, pereventing their children from spending hours playing an online game instead of doing their homework.
Manage all settings to the Child Control system via the web portal. You can access the web portal conveniently via your standard browser (iPhone, iPad or Mac also possible) or via the parent app.
See what's running
In the usage logs section of the web portal, you can always see what is happening on the PC or mobile device.
If a page was accidentally blocked you can unblock the page immediately from there. Use the e-mail report feature to receive the reports on a daily or weekly basis via email.
Roaming: Multiple devices, one limit
Roaming is what we call cross-device, shared time counting. With this function you can
count used up times on multiple devices together and share limits. That way your child is prevented from simply switching devices after a time limit has expired.
Enable the roaming function in the web portal in order to count times from various devices together.
Limits can still be set separately on each device.
Bonus apps and time vouchers (TANs)
You can issue time vouchers as a reward in the form of a TAN (6-digit number) for completed homework, helping out
around the house or anything else. With the TAN, the child activates the extension that you have previously defined. You can also setup other apps as a bonus app where these time vouchers are
created automatically. First learn, then play :-)
