How much does it cost after the first year?
After the first 12 months it then costs either £7.49 per month or £77.88 for a further 12 months (prices ex VAT).
What if I don't want to renew my subscription after the first 12 months?
Renewing your subscription is optional. If you do not wish to renew it your tablet will continue to work but you will not be able to make any changes to what is shown.
Can I use my own tablet?
No. The operating system on the myhomehelper tablet has been significantly amended to ensure that nothing can interfere with the myhomehelper software.
The software is embedded into the operating system as a full admin app meaning it has total control over the tablet in a way that it couldn't have if it was downloaded as a standard app.
This all helps to ensure the smooth running of myhomehelper giving you peace of mind that nothing elese is interfering with the display.
Does it need an internet connection?
myhomehelper requires access to an internet connection to activate the display and to receive on-going updates. This connection can either be via wi-fi or a mobile SIM card.
How much data does it use?
Exlcuding video calling myhomehelper typically uses less than 1GB of data per month although there may be spikes in data usage if you upload a lot of photos in one go.
Using the Video Calling feature can significantly increase the amount of data used.
Video calls use approximately 7.5mb per minute, meaning that if you were to make a daily 10 minute video call you would use approximately 2gb of data per month. Add the myhomehelper data usage and it is less than 4gb in total per month
Can I use a SIM card?
Yes, the myhomehelper tablet has a built-in slot for a standard sized (15 x 25mm) 3G or 4G SIM card.

After payment has been confirmed delivery usually takes:
- UK - up to 3 working days
- Countries within the EU- up to 6 working days

Can I set up the display at home before taking it to my parents?

Once you are ready, you can then connect it to a different wi-fi network in the property where it will finally reside.
