Moms are one of the strongest and toughest people in the world. They do a lot of things just so that their children will grow up to be the best. Moms are willing to do anything just for their children. Children are more prone to the dangers of the world than ever before. Moms are more empowered to do more too. They multi-task just to get by the day. What’s a mom got to do?
Mom now has the power of technology! Technology enables people to do things they weren’t able to do before. Smart gadgets and high-speed internet can enable moms to have control over the safety and security of their family. One mom who’s taking advantage of technology so well is Asia’s songbird and modern-day mom Regine Velasquez-Alcasid! Mom to four-year-old Nathaniel James, more fondly known as Nate, Regine exemplifies the modern-day Filipino mom who strikes the balance between her hectic work schedule and her role as a family woman.
“Technology helps me become a better mom,” she revealed. “Specifically, I get a lot of help from PLDT HOME.” Regine, who is also an ambassador for the brand, a dded, “They have a suite of products and services that are designed to give moms like me peace of mind through the power of technology. So far, super helpful talaga siya for me especially when I have to be away for work.”
How PLDT HOME Helps Moms
PLDT HOME provides products and services that help parents like Regine do more things and make sure that the family is safe and sound. They have two products that promote family safety and security: the Fam Cam and Smart Watch.
The Fam Cam is a home monitoring system which allows parents to check on their children remotely, and even communicate with them. The Smart Watch, a personal favorite of Nate, is a multi-functional gadget which kids can use to take photos, play music, and even record voice messages.
With the Smart Watch, Regine can easily talk to Nate when it is connected to the Telpad or a smartphone. It can also be used as a WiFi remote for the Telpad or a smartphone. The Alcasids can easily take selfies or groufies wherever they are using that feature.
Regine is also at ease when she shared how the watch helps Nate become more responsible and aware of his surroundings. His Smart Watch comes to the rescue with the anti-lost feature. All he has to do is to click on a button on the watch. The connected device will make a sound so it can be located. The Smart Watch will also vibrate if Nate goes more than 10 meters away from the paired device. This means that if the Telpad or smart phone is with Mommy Regine or Daddy Ogie, it will remind him to go back to them.
Newest Member of the PLDT HOME Family
Following his mother’s footsteps, Nate was recently launched as the new ambassador for the Smart Watch.
“We’re very excited to have Nate on board,“ PLDT VP and Home Marketing Director Gary Dujali said. “He represents the kids of his generation—perennially curious, smart and dynamic. Together with his mom, we look forward to reaching to more families and educating them about the ways technology can help bring them closer.”
Regine added, “Siyempre, I’m super proud of my baby boy! PLDT HOME is close to our hearts and as a family, we are proof that technology can really help make our lives safer and easier.”
