Our world has shrunk; this digital age affords us knowledge at our fingertips. One is always connected to the world. A few hours offline feels like an eternity. In this fast moving internet world, the hazards and addictions of being connected cannot be understated. Children and young adults are most at risk. Recent studies at the Boston institute of Technology have concluded that children are becoming net literate at an early age. The same study has also warned that people spend an alarming 400 percent time more online, compared to a decade ago. With such alarming statistics, parents have a very real and valid concern about what their wards are accessing. This is where Vimana comes in.
What Is Vimana?
Vimana is a combination of a smart home device and mobile app that helps parents manage their children’s digital experience and create a healthy relationship with technology.
It is not about knowing the latest Internet or technology fads. This device is an enabler for better parenting. It allows parents to set boundaries in the digital world.
Vimana Smart Device To Monitor Kids Online Experience Features

This single piece of hardware is to be used to manage all devices on the go and at home. Its management works in two specific manners:
- Manage the screen time of a particular device
- Monitor social media and online activity of a particular login profile
While it provides an umbrella protection to all devices within the network, it does so without affecting the internet speeds.
Vimana allows for deep analytics for content being viewed by individual devices on different profiles. The idea is to not spy but protect. To this end, information about what is being viewed and how social interactions are developing, are important. Another important thing to keep in mind is that this device informs parents of what their children like. Knowing their interests allows parents to better reinforce positive behavior and discourage negative habits.
