Aussie start-up just became your ideal housemate
Housesitting just got a sexy makeover with My Home Watch. Ditch your unreliable Aunt or your nosey neighbor and use this GPS tracked, live streamed, paid-for service thanks to this savvy startup.
From putting the bins out and looking after pets and plants, to taking the mail and papers in and checking for pest infestations, My Home Watch (MHW) is the first home watching service in the country, set up due increasing demand for more home security and peace of mind while away, with 550 break-ins a day happening across the country*.
The trend for these services in the US and Europe is growing exponentially, being one of the fastest growing industries in the United States and Canada*, and now it’s Australia’s turn to benefit from this service.
Forget worrying about the garden, the mail, the food going off in your fridge, the leaking toilet that’s always been a bit dodgy, and the beginnings of the ant army in summer. Never take your pooch to the kennels for the weekend again and come home to a clean and tidy house full of fresh food and flowers when you return to relax knowing everything was taken care of while you were away.
The savvy startup has cleverly partnered with NETGEAR’s Arlo video camera. MHW uses the newly launched Arlo Pro, an Australian first, to allow you to monitor your home from afar. The Arlo Smart Security System is a camera system linked to the property owner’s smart phone which offers brilliant HD video quality, live streaming, free cloud recording, instant alerts, and other smart features. The smart security camera lets you watch over what you love from every angle, indoors and out, day and night.
MHW also GPS tracks their Home Watch Property Specialists, with data sent straight to their devices, anytime and anywhere they are in the world.
Founder and CEO of MHW Natasha Morgan is excited to be launching into the Australian market and says her own experience was what made the idea come to life.
“When it was time for our first family holiday, I reluctantly called my mum to ask if she’d look after the house while we were away. I felt so guilty. She lived 40 minutes away, then it hit me…
I’m not the only one in Australia who has to make that call to ask mum to look after the house.
So I worked tirelessly and came up with a service so you can sit on the beach and check your house is in order, while not having to rely on family members or friends messing up your house!
I am so excited to bring this service to Aussies across the country.”
Franchisee opportunities are already being snapped up, and are available across the country. For more information head to www.myhomewatch.com.au

Natasha Morgan, Founder and CEO of My Home Watch Australia, has extensive knowledge and experience in managing Luxury Lifestyle’s & Estate Management for High Net-Worth Individuals, Executives and Families.
In her late 20’s she was offered the opportunity of a lifetime to work for a famous business tycoon and his family. Since then she has made a career out of being an Executive / Private Assistant / Estate Manager for Celebrity’s / Business Tycoon / High Net Worth Individuals and their family for properties valued over 15 million dollars.
After 8 years of being the go-to property expert, she met the love of my life in Melbourne, and returned to her hometown of Adelaide, South Australia and had a beautiful son.
When it was time for her first family holiday, she reluctantly called her mum to ask if she’d look after the house while they were away. She felt so guilty. She lived 40 minutes away, then it hit her:
She was not the only one in Australia who had to make that call to ask mum to look after the house. We all do it, because whether you’re away for business or on holidays, everyone needs that reassurance that their home is safe and secure.
That’s how My Home Watch for Australians was born.
She has now made it her mission to allow every Australian to be able to afford to have “Peace of Mind, While They Were Away”, and to create a professional service that is trusted within the community.
