I just can't keep my 2 year old away from the remotes and my 4 and 6 year olds find them a little too complex and bulky. Weemote to the rescue with programmable buttons that simplify things but also secures access to only the channels you approve.
My kids will turn on the TV without asking and I've programmed my cable box to start up on a kid friendly channel. That doesn't stop them from using the remote to change the channel to something they shouldn't be subjected to, like horror movies or adult themed material. If you can block access to the original remote and front panel of the cable box then the Weemote will help make your home a safer environment.
Another benefit is that it avoids you having to block out channels manually on your receiver. I hate channel surfing when you have to key in a password to unlock a blocked channel.
They also make a Weemote Sr edition for senior citizens. I guess they have both ends of the spectrum covered literally then. Both sides possibly in diapers. I like their terminology in that the Jr version is considered "Child Friendly" and the Sr version is considered "Goof-Proof". My Grandma's no goof but she would get a kick out of it.
