What We Fix
Internet Safety For Children & Teenagers
Are you worried about keeping your child safe online?
Children and teenagers spend a lot of time online these days, connecting with friends, browsing the Internet for information, streaming content or playing games. With an average of four digital devices in Irish homes and research showing most young people are going online at least once a day parents are quite rightly concerned about helping their children to stay safe.
Whether you are comfortable using digital technology and social media or you feel that your child knows more than you do at iFixIT, we can offer you the benefit of our experience and advice on Internet safety including:
The internet protections that are already on your laptop or tablet and how to switch them on
Parental controls and filtering software that can help protect children online, how it works, and where you can get it
Advice on choosing a tablet, smartphone or games console for your child and setting up controls on the device and on your home broadband.
Privacy settings and sharing information
Storing your personal data in the Cloud
Apple’s iCloud can also save your photos, music, documents syncing all your devices so you can access them whenever and wherever you are.
But what about backing up your PC files on Dropbox and where is the best place to store a copy of those precious family photos?
Recent cyber attacks on Cloud services like the well-publicised celebrity photo hack last year have made many people wary and with good reason.
At iFixIT, we have extensive experience in providing secure storage and can advise you on the range of free and paid-for Cloud storage options available and the best place to store all your documents, photos and music.
Smart Home Systems
Or is it time to rethink your home heating or security system and take advantage of cost-saving technology? Would you like to learn more for example, about energy-saving devices which turn on the heat when you’re away from home and can be controlled from your smartphone.
Smart Home technology and the Internet of Things is transforming the way that home energy and entertainment systems are controlled and managed including:
Central cabling systems for home entertainment, home cinema and Wi-Fi
Security and gate management systems
Lighting control and home heating systems
There’s the Nest Learning Thermostat for example, which connects to Wi-Fi so you can control the temperature from your phone, tablet or laptop. Its Auto Away feature means that Nest also automatically turns itself down when there’s nobody home, to help you save on energy bills.
Nest Labs have also developed Nest Protect,a Wi-Fi enabled smoke alarm and carbon-monoxide detector which will send an alert to your smartphone if there’s any danger – or simply tell you when the batteries need changing.
iFixIT can advise you on integrating your smartphone or tablet with smart home technology, IT solutions for home networks and creating smart home systems which are custom-designed to suit you, whatever your needs and budget.
