Every day, we improve REMI according to your needs and we love to read your stories and anecdotes with REMI. We have selected a few !
I bought this for my 9 year old son. He wanted a clock for his bedroom that could also play music. He's also very much into robots, so he loves the face that lets him know when its time to wake up or keep sleeping. After a few weeks of use, this has helped everyone stay in bed longer on the weekends! So, a few points about this device for parents: It's described as a baby monitor, but it is so much more than that! Yes, it allows you to listen in on your child's room through your smartphone. But, it also let's you speak with your child through the REMI using the smartphone app like a walkie-talkie. This feature alone had my son running to his bedroom quickly at bedtime so that we can continue being silly as he fell asleep. The REMI has sensors that measure both the room temperature and sound levels. I wish we had this when he was an infant! There were so many nights when we were wondering if he was waking up because it was too warm, too cold, or if some sound startled him. With the REMI, you can simply look at the graphs that are provided to understand if temperature or sound are culprits to your baby waking up at 3AM. And, of course, the main feature of this device is the ability to help train your child with healthy sleep habits. This is such an important issue especially these days when our children are over scheduled and overstimulated with electronic devices! It's awesome that we can use one to undo the damaging effects of the other devices. Through the app, you set your child's bedtime and wake time schedules for both weekdays and weekends. If your child happens to wake up too early, he/she looks at the face on the clock to know if it's time to get up or just go back to sleep. If the face is sleeping, then the child knows to go back to sleep. If the face is awake, then the child knows it's okay to get out of bed. This has helped our son sleep an extra hour or two on weekends. That small difference makes a big difference in his mood throughout the day!

My 14 year old autistic son has a low concept of time, and for a couple weeks his sleep schedule was all off. He was awake ALL NIGHT and was sleeping ALL DAY at school, out cold. After ruling out that anything was wrong with him health wise, I knew I needed something to help get him back on track. I typed in children’s sleep tracker and this is what I found, before this clock I was barely getting any sleep,’just trying to keep my eyes open after a long day to make sure my son was ACTUALLY sleeping after lights out. I went on a limb and ordered this clock, I thought the face on it would be a great visual cue for him to know when the appropriate time is to be awake or asleep... that feature works wonderfully for him! He starts his bedtime routine without any prompting from me once the face turns to sleepy face! If he wakes the app will ping me so I have the chance to redirect him. It’s great to check the data in the app to see if he had any patterns of when he wakes up, I can listen in using the baby monitor feature to make sure he didn’t turn his tv on during the night. If he wakes up before the clock is awake he will stay in bed until the appropriate time. This cute little clock has been a wonderful tool for us! I honestly feel like it could be completely remarketed toward the autism community. I did have to connect the REMI to my computer to install an update in order to connect via Bluetooth. Since I did that I’ve had no other connection issues with this device.

I have a 2 1/2 year old that was giving up her nap and it was leading to a very cranky kid and mom. I came across Remi and honestly thought it was $100 gamble I was willing to take. We had a lot of talks about how a robot was going to come live with us and he would need naps. She was so excited literally I took Remi out of the box, plugged it in and she took a nap. We’ve had him for a couple weeks now and if Remi is sleepinf she is sleeping, or in the mornings she stays in bed until Remi wakes up! Honestly it was the best $100 I have ever spent and I haven’t even hooked it up for music or anything!!!
