Honeywell Total Connect: A Mothers
kay, so, Im a single working
mom and there are times I cant be there for my
nine-year-old daughter like I would like. Im trying
to take calls, make sales and go from meeting to meeting,
all while trying to juggle the important things in life,
like making sure my daughter knows she always comes
first. So, how do I stay completely in tune with both
my professional and personal world

Me: Honeywell, this is Tara,
how can I help you?.
Ashlee: Mommy, my hair looks
terrible and Nana doesnt know how to fix it!
Me: Ashlee, what are you talking
Ashlee: Today is picture day
Mom, and my hair is sticking up in the back and Nana
doesnt get it!
Me: Ashlee, Im at work
sure its just fine.
Ashlee: How can you say that?
You cant even see it!
Heres my option, tell her
to buck up, go to school and hope that my mom doesnt
have too much of an issue getting her to school. Or
two, validate what I am saying to her. . .Bam, Im
Very quickly, I logged on to my
Honeywell Total Connect account, pulled up the camera
I needed and there she was.
Me: Ashlee, go stand in front
of the TV. (Thats where I have my camera.)
Me: Honey, that pink shirt
you have on looks great for pictures and your hair,
I dig it! Thats how CeCe from Shake it Up wears
it. Kid, youre rocking it out!
Ashlee: Wait, you can see
Me: Yep, now show me how youre
going to pose for your picture and smile!
Suddenly, she is smiling and she
goes to school with no issue for my mom. Now, I understand
not every day is going to go that smoothly, but man,
was it nice to use my security cameras in a way that
works best for my living situation! I never thought
about using my cameras for anything more than just
security. Now, I can be in two places at once and
she knows Im a little closer, even when Im
to Honeywell Stories table of contents.
