“As a family of 6, with crazy schedules, we wanted a tool that would allow us to stay organized and help us manage day to day, something that our whole family could be a part of,” says Mike Conroy, co-founder, House Monkey.
Allentown, NJ (PRWEB) March 29, 2016
Launching today, and funded by Kickstarter, House Monkey is a subscription-based home management solution (mobile app plus web-based tool) designed to bring the entire tribe (the people living in the home) together to organize, schedule and complete everyday chores, like making the bed, as well as home maintenance tasks, such as changing air filters.
The app is the on-the-go, day to day platform that puts the tribe in the know and on the same page. It allows easy, one-step communication directly from the House Monkey platform. Users can view or schedule daily chores, tasks, activities and events, record or view a how-to video for a task at a specific location in the home with the Monkey-See, Monkey-Do feature as well as earn banana points to get rewards.
The web-based tool is a password protected, cloud-based platform that stores and manages data and is integrated with the mobile app. Users can view, export and print reports, such as appliance and utility maintenance records, tasks & chore calendars and rewards or your House Monkey Home Rating. The platform also allows users to scan in PDF’s of contracts, warranties, receipts etc. and archives data-heavy video and pictures.
Real time updates allow the user's tribe to stay connected and engaged to make sure the family is on the same page.
“As a family of six, with crazy schedules, we wanted a tool that would allow us to stay organized and help us manage the day to day of our very busy household, something that our whole family could be a part of,” says Mike Conroy, co-founder of House Monkey. “Unfortunately, nothing we came across efficiently blended family involvement with overall running of the home which includes house maintenance, daily tasks & chores, key events, and all the extra-curricular activities.”
House Monkey is different in that it encourages the entire family, even the kids, to be part of the process. “House Monkey helps parents teach their children the life skills involved in managing and operating a household in a positive and fun way,” says Donna Conroy, co-founder of House Monkey. “It was important to Mike and I that we created something that brings families together. We embraced this very real digital era and married it to the aging concept of family, a challenging mission in this age of individualism. Our vision is for families to get daily tasks done quickly and efficiently, freeing up time and allowing families to spend more of that time together.”
House Monkey has two key features that helps parents involve children in household management. Monkey See- Monkey Do allows users to take photos or video’s, in their own house, demonstrating how-to-do chores. Dependent upon family’s core beliefs, an optional feature called Banana points allows parents to reward individuals or the whole family when chores and tasks are completed.
“Although rewards can be used any way a family deems fit, our hope was that families focus on rewards that encourage family time like a picnic by the lake, or getting to choose the board game for a family game night, or even something that brings further involvement in household management like choosing what is made for dinner that week,” says Donna Conroy.
