The Aro home device will connect to and charge five phones at once.
The Aro Home device is the visual cue to put down your phone, so it has to be beautiful enough to be displayed in your home. You will want to show it off. High-traffic places like kitchens, living rooms, and foyers are popular spots because you see it and are reminded to put down your phone.
You can invite them to join your account by clicking the orange plus icon on the home screen and sending them an invite. That will give you a unique activation code to share with them. The next step is to download and install the Aro app on their phones. Just like you did when setting up your account, you will enter their email address, click the magic link in the email sent to them, and then enter that activation code in the Aro app. If they are unable to receive email on their phones, you can retrieve the magic link from their email on your device and text them the link. Clicking the magic link from a text message should open the app and allow you to continue the setup.
Aro is about relationships, not restrictions. Limits, filters, and controls are no fun for anyone. And they generally don’t work. That’s why we take a more positive approach. Parents be warned - kids often love the idea of Aro so much that they become the ones trying to take control to create more Aro family time.
Aro is currently available in the US and Canada.
