Circle with Disney Parental Tech Control Adds Alexa Skill

Circle with Disney is an amazingly simple to use gadget that allows parents to manage every device connected to the family network to filter content, limit screen time and set a bedtime for every device in the home. This is an amazing device that I promise to deliver a formal review for soon and quite honestly is an easy solution to a problem the wife and I have faced for years. Up until now the tech was just too complicated and couldn’t be managed easily.

The Circle with Disney is available from Amazon for just $99: Circle with Disney

The gadget is managed through an accompanying app that runs on either iOS or Android.

If you’re a parent that wants to ensure you kid or kids remain safe on the Internet and need to limit their screen time, you definitely want to take a look at this device.

Additionally, though it has only simple capability right now, Circle with Disney has also added an Alexa skill. The Alexa skill allows parents to query to see how much screen time has been used, and allows the kids to ask how much time they have left. Reports suggest that new voice-command capability for Circle with Disney will be available eventually.

Additionally (and I’ve not tested this piece out yet), there’s a rewards program for Circle with Disney where through partnership with other services, Circle with Disney can gift kids more screen time based on good activities.
