ILY Wants To Keep Families Connected With New Home Phone
ILY is aiming to be a communications brand exclusively for families. At the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, the startup company introduces a new home phone kit that keeps families connected.
A good parent always wants to keep in touch with his/her kids when he/she is not at home. However, it is always a challenge to stay connected when a family member travels for work or is out of the country.
Insensi Chief Executive Officer and Founder of ILY Ilan Abehassera talks about his vision at the 2016 Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show about a communication device that keeps families connected and has demonstrated the ILY device on stage during the CES hardware battlefield. The product should be out in the market in the next few months. A Kickstarter campaign is also planned soon and a ship date this year in the second quarter.
Ilan Abehassera is a father of three children ages eight, six and three. His work requires him to travel a lot, and he is frustrated by the challenges of getting in touch with his kids. His home does not have a landline, and his wife works as well. His kids are too young to have mobile phones of their own as an average child in the United States can get his own cellular phone at age 12. Communication gets even tougher when relatives are in other countries.
The ILY home phone is specifically designed for communication among the family. The ILY device includes a wireless handset, speakers, a camera, and an eight-inch touchscreen. Users can basically make video and voice calls with it, but it is limited within the family only. With this device, parents can call home to check on their children. Kids can also call their grandparents or other relatives without anyone's help. Other relatives can purchase their own ILY devices if they would want to, but adults can simply connect via the ILY apps for Android, iPhone or iPad also.
ILY apps and devices can save family conversations so it can be relived. In addition to video and voice calls, it can also send photos, text messages and even drawings.
ILY is a device that parents can feel comfortable giving their kids access to. The device will be available in retail stores at a price of US$149.
