Excellent product which is designed to connect with a Bluetooth enabled pill box called Memo Box. Bluetooth pairing instructions should have been clearer but once that is done (opening the box seems to put it into pairing mode), setting notification alarms for meds at different times is simple. This is a great product for you or a loved one especially if you have complicated a med regimen. The app notifies you when to take your dose and tracks when you open the box to get it. This could be a great help for someone if their doctor needs to know exactly how med compliant they are. Also, it has another great feature if you have a family member that you worry about. Set up the box for mom or dad, open the app on your phone and you can connect to their account and receive notification that they missed a med dose. I haven't used it, but it would give great peace of mind to know that if they forget to take something essential, you would be able to remind them in time to avoid an emergency!
App downloads, but won't install
The app itself is not properly set up. In order to set up medications you have to start by setting alarms that are attached to the meds, versus being able to just add your meds one at a time and then add alarms as you wish. The other issue is that my first dose does not require a set alarm for the dose as the time varies daily. What does matter is that after I take the first dose, 3 hours after I need another and then following that three hours after the second dose I take a third. I was assured the app would do this by developers, and the app does nothing of the sort. It's a fantastic idea and the pill boxes are beautiful and well made, but the app needs to be redesigned in order to make the box usable as they are not able to be used with other systems.
Left a lot to be desired. At the moment it is totally unusable for me, because you can't track meds you take when needed and not after a timed schedule. Frustrating. It looks like you can't have silent alarms either which is NOT OK in many environments.
Can't add a pill box.. When plugged in charging.. Could have been more descriptive there. No vibrate alert? Just the beep?
I had a few setbacks....3 hours later....a few hints you might not find in the instructions.... Registering helped with the issues I was having with the app in terms of adding a new pill box. After that I struggled to choose a device to even pair with but upon opening the lid of the memo box it instantly went into pairing mode. In regards to the charging, it appears the blue light won't blink if it's charged up and this was an error on my part. I found this out by letting the device sit for a bit and then plugged it up again and the blue light came on. Note that it is a flashing light rather than a steady one. Overall the memo box and app are working perfectly now and I did a few tests to ensure this. I'm very excited to use this!
