Your Helix entertainment experience gives you a wide range of useful options. Internet, live and on-demand TV... There are so many choices! However, as a parent, you're probably wondering what your children will do with so many options. Don’t worry! With Parental Control, you can easily manage your entire family's entertainment options.
Parental Control: making your life easier
Helix tools are easy to use and can be configured to your preferences. For example, you can:
- Set a schedule for when devices can be used.
- Lock specific content.
- Control Internet access.
- Set PINs to prevent the purchase of on-demand content.
You can protect your family and control its overall access simply by pressing a few buttons. Set the options you want and let Helix do the rest!
Helix Fi app and website: control Internet and Wi-Fi network access
The Helix Fi app and website will soon enable you to see and control the devices connected to your home network. You’ll just have to open the Helix Fi app or log in on the website to access the Parental Control settings.
Among other features, you’ll be able to:
- Block Internet access at specific times, like during dinner or after your children's bedtime.
- Create profiles and nicknames to group devices by user.
- Get notified when someone connects to the Wi-Fi network.
- Manage Internet and Wi-Fi network passwords.
Get peace of mind with the Helix Fi app.
Tracking what your children watch on TV can get tricky. Thankfully, Helix offers an entertainment experience that includes a section for kids, the Kids’ Zone, which provides age-appropriate content for different age groups!
Among its many useful options, you’ll no doubt enjoy the age filter, which ensures that your children have access to age-appropriate and interesting on-demand content and live TV shows, be they tweens or preschoolers. This section also enables you to have the next episode of a series play automatically. You’ll no longer have to manually start the next episode of your children's favourite cartoon. That should help make things easier!
Purchase PIN and Parental Control PIN: secure access
One of the best things about Helix is its catalogue of movies and series that can be rented on demand. No need to record your shows or watch them live anymore! This feature enables all TV users – including children – to buy content, but Helix has you covered.
To prevent making purchases by mistake or on a whim, you can set a Purchase PIN – a four-digit code that will be required anytime someone wants to check out content. It's a great way to prevent impulse buys or accidents.
You can also set a Parental Control PIN on Helix. Once you’ve decided what types of content are forbidden in your household and on devices connected to your network, simply enable the PIN to prevent young ones from watching inappropriate content without having to spend your days looking over their shoulders.
