Work calls and you jump back on the phone and jump out of ‘mothering’ mode and back into ‘Working Mom’ mode again. Suddenly, you reemerge from your quiet space the kids have the controller for the television and have a program on or a movie you would NOT have wanted them to choose. Rather than disagreeing, you take control of the situation and when the kids exit the room.

“Mom is Always Watching” ~Johnyne Hoyes
Your kids leave lights on in bathrooms, head outside to play and come and go during the day but you can’t see any of this or can you? Did your husband put the garage door down or did your father-in-law drop off the groceries like he said he would or are you going to make another stop? Did the cleaning service stay for a few hours or did your kids bring several friends with them while you were not home? All great questions and Super Mom can define all the answers with a single flick of the wrist and her mobile device.
Meet Xfinity Home , which is Comcast’s home security, and energy management platform, to stay in charge and its always watching even while you are on the go! Your eyes are that of an interactive Web portal via a mobile device and a free Xfinity Home app and before you think it is to hard to use, look at the screen in the above photo, pure simplicity.
You can program the Xfinity Home to manage energy consumption by controlling lights and thermostats remotely ($$ savings), and set the app up to indicate when a door is opened, or to record when your kids come in and video who all in coming in with them, hence “Mom is always watching.” You are so clever and Xfinity is so awesome for cleaning up the details of our life that sometimes go mismanaged.
