When you can use wearable devices to keep a track on your daily activities, why not find something which could track your TV viewing activities! After all, reports suggest that an average American watches 13+ years of TV in his lifetime! Surprised, aren’t you? What’s more surprising is that your kids are also right there with you. So, wouldn’t it be better if you could keep a tab on their TV viewing habits with a smart device? This is where MediaBit comes into play. This is a cloud connected device which is in its prototype stage of development at present. A Kickstarter campaign is running to raise funds for it.

Making your Life More Fruitful
When you know how many hours you are wasting watching meaningless TV, you will be able to do something about it and make your life more constructive. With MediaBit, you will be able to learn when your TV is on and the duration for which it is on. You can track your TV viewing habits by learning about them in your smartphone with relevant app.
The statistics are sent to the MediaBit website where you can chart them. You will be able to turn off your TV remotely using your smartphone or even a web browser.
You will be able to monitor your kid’s TV viewing using the relevant app at any place and time. You can set your TV to turn off as per your schedule. If your kid wants to act smart and unplugs the device, you will be alerted. If the HDMI cables are disconnected, you will get notifications in your smartphone.
By knowing TV viewing insights, you will definitely be able to keep your kid from watching too much TV and you can keep a check on yourself as well.
