Mobile Device Management At Home

So many people now have mobile phones - I've seen children as young as 6 have their own smartphone. I don't remember the last time I saw my teenage children without their phone in their hands or at least within reaching distance. The last time I moved a phone when I was cleaning, my son nearly had a heart attack!

I tried to find a way to turn this into an advantage. After all, they have phones but they don't always answer when I call, much to my annoyance. With my oldest child out later and later with his friends, breaking his curfew more often than I'd like, I decided to try out 3CX Mobile Device Manager.

With mobile device management in the home, I've had to worry far less about my children as I did previously. How so? Well, let me give you a quick example - when my son is out late, I don't have to worry about where he is. Is he really at his friends house? Being able to track children means I can just log in to my account and see his real time location. Yes he's late, but at least I know he's where he said he would be (and I can always go and get him!)

3CX Mobile Device Manager also allows me to know what applications are on each connected device and I can remotely remove any that I don't approve of. The biggest advantage, in my opinion, is that if they ever lose their phone, with all their personal data and photo's on it, I can see where it is through the dashboard, and even remotely lock the phone. In fact, one evening when I was feeling rather annoyed at another broken curfew, I had good fun changing my son's password. I told him what the new password was three days later, but I think he learned his lesson. And nothing gets him home faster than telling him if he isn't back in twenty minutes, I'll be remotely wiping his entire device.

At the first phase of my project I also use a free softphone, because it was only for testing how effective it is. As it turned to be very effective, I decided to implement a more complext softphone for complex text, voice and video phoning to my customers. There are many softphones on the market. Since I increase the capacity, finally, I bought a softphone license, as free softphones were not so reliable as they should be in production. My deciding factors were the support and reliability with high capacity.

Finally, I chose the Ozeki VoIP SIP SDK that is quite flexible enough to develop a Silverlight softphone (and I also created an autodialer with it). The support team is very responsive and helped me a lot, the right support was critical for me. That is why I purchased this product instead of the others after testing.

I hope, my experiences help others...
