(How to maintain work-life…)
In the fast moving life, there are many pressures that new-age couples have to deal with- running a home, doing daily chores like cooking/cleaning, raising children and handle the tight deadlines at work!
Ever wondered how the 21st century couples can deal with all this? How can they divide their daily work, make sure their children get the right amount of attention and time and also be productive at work?
Today, technology not just makes your life easy and simple, but also brings a work-life balance. There are many working couples, who constantly stay connected on mobile Internet- using email, social networking websites.

Anita is also a bit cautious of what her son is surfing on the Internet. She has put in security/tracking software into her child's PC to stop him from accessing X-rated content.
There are many working couples who leave their infants in the hands of a nanny. They constantly worry whether their children are safe at home. In this scenario, it becomes of prime importance to install spy cameras, which can keep an eye in their home.
After a spate of bad experience with their nanny, Gaurav and Damini Sood decided to install video cameras in their home. "Cameras installed at home for online surveillance, with full knowledge of the nanny and staff, cannot be termed as spy cameras and do not pose a threat to their privacy. With two kids at home, my husband and I can login online from our offices or even on the move to keep an eye. Not that we would be watching it the whole day, nevertheless the household staff is always conscious, knowing that we can watch them anytime from anywhere," says Damini.
"With people spending more time at work, the demand for customised security systems and automation solutions is on the rise. Designers of intelligent home security systems are turning for a complete automated home system to maximise technological efficiencies. Today, one can control one's home through the iPhone- with the ability to monitor, control and manage lighting, heating and other network controls from anywhere in the world," says Murugan Paramasivam, country manager Crestron Asia Ltd.
Today's discerning home owners demand the ability to control and transform their environment - making it more comfortable, convenient and entertaining.
"Homeowners can translate this concept into a reality by introducing 'smarter' control and automation technology in their living space. This can include a complete environment control system, which has the power to manage lighting, AV equipment, air conditioning and entertainment systems, with an interactive touch screen interface", says Abhimanyu Gupta, Director, Actis Technologies.
