A Great Pill Box to Help with Medication Reminders
I am a Best Buy Employee, and I've purchased this Memo Pillbox for my Grandmother. She's starting to have some memory problems and wouldn't remember if she had taken her medication for the time of day. She's also in the habit of refilling her Pill Box ASAP, which made it a bigger issue because she has a hard time remember what day of the week it is. We also wouldn't know when she's running low and need refills.
The Memo Box works well for us because we can set reminders for when she needs to take her medication for her. There's a small speaker that will beep when it's time. Multiple reminders can be set. There's also an LED on the box which lights up if you accidentally open the box twice within a specified time, which helps prevent double dosing.
Another neat feature is the Memo Health App that's available for Android or iPhones, whether you are using this for yourself, or are a Caregiver; It allows you to set refill reminders. You can take a picture of the pills or the label of the medicine, specify the quantity you have and the daily dosage. The App will remind you when it's time to refill.
Couple Other features that may not be visible in pictures or descriptions until we purchased:
- Family Tracker: Track Multiple people, and see their records
- Multi device tracking: Track multiple Pill Boxes
- This unit comes with a 4 doze box, there's a 7 day cartridge that can be purchased (Sold separate) to replace the 4 doze. We purchased just the 4, and She refills it daily.
Not giving it a 5 start because there are some limitations:
- The Device does need bluetooth to transmit to the App. If you're a caregiver and buying for a loved one, I recommend connecting it to a tablet or some other simple and basic phone/tablet they have that has internet and Bluetooth. That way they get the local reminders, and you can receive reminders, remotely.
- The App is slightly lacking. It's not bad, but it's definitely not an example of Great. There's some areas of opportunity, and the developers have made updates to it.
- if you have more than 7 or 8 pills for each doze, they might not all fit inside, but depending on size, shouldn't be a limiting factor.
In conclusion, I recommend the Memo Box if you, or someone you know has a hard time remembering if they've taken their medication, or are worried about double doses.

In a nutshell, I wanted it to work but TinyLogic needs to improve the app so it easily syncs like advertised.
I purchased this pill box because like most of us, every once in a while I get busy and sometimes forget to take my pills or worse, can't remember if I took my pills.
I did my research and selected this product because it's supposed to sync to your phone when you open it. When I received it, I installed the app, entered my meds into the app, and added my alerts. The app is terrible, but figured once setup, I would be good to go which is all I cared about.
Well, it's now been two weeks and I've had to go in a manually record my meds because the box will not sync with my phone (Pixel 3 XL)...even when my phone is sitting next to it and all app permissions for product syncing have been approved. If I have to manually go into the app to enter the time/date I took my meds, it absolutely defeats the purpose of helping me keep track of my medication habits. It would be a waste of $50 when you could manually record your dosage on your phone calendar.
I know this pill box was probably designed with older generations in mind (I'm 35)...but given how difficult it was to set up, maintain and the more manual maintenance nature of it because the syncing is terrible...I wouldn't recommend it whatsoever. And it's sad, because if it had worked, I would have purchased one for my mom and dad instead of returning it.
“I am an employee of Best Buy” - These are great for everyday use depending on the amount of medication you take. It comes with two inserts. 2 compartments or 4. You download the application and it sends reminders to your phone when you need to take meds. If you don't acknowledge the alarm/ open the pillbox if will show as missed medication.
Alarm isn't very loud on Pillbox
I am a best buy employee and have sold many of these to my clients. For Clients with basic pill needs this is very helpful in reminding them and loved ones to take daily pills. Only 4 slots leaves something to be desired.
