TechDen is designed to help families create balanced screen time that works for everyone. Our unique charging and storage device, The Den, teams up with the TechDen app to foster healthy habits for parents and kids. The Den takes an “out of sight, out of mind” approach that establishes boundaries and creates a positive balance with technology.
TechDen is effective and intuitive:
• Assign device(s) to a child
• Based on your kid’s schedule, you can set up sessions, which
are windows of time during which they can use their device.
Within each session, parents can set a maximum allowable
• Set rewards to positively reinforce healthy habits
• Create schedules to remotely lock and unlock the doors of The
• Receive notifications about device removal and time usage
• Allows visibility to which devices are charging in The Den and
which are in-use
• Works with TechDen Jr. app
• With TechDen Jr. kids see schedules, receive notifications
counting down how much time they have left before it’s time to
return their device to The Den, request more time and see
progress towards goals
• Works with hardware: The Den
TechDen encourages healthier screen habits based on the kind of predictable routine kids respond to. The App incentives participation. Storing devices in The Den establishes a new mindset of unavailability to limit distractions. It lets families collaborate to set schedules and rewards, building trust and teaching kids to balance their tech time. Most of all, it creates more opportunities for the best interactions - the ones that happen face-to-face.
In an on-the-go world, life seems so focused on the next moment. TechDen is designed for families to be present, make and re-make connections with each other, and mindfully create memories that last beyond the edges of our screens.

Out of sight is out of mind

Good concept - app is total garbage
Out of the month or so we’ve had this, it’s worked well for maybe a week. When it’s working, I love the idea. But then the app crashes or doesn’t recognize my kids’ devices as being returned, it’s horrible and I spend more time trying to fix than I ever did arguing with my kids about their iPad usage before I ever bought it. (and the instructions they give for toggling the USB Accessories on is pointless because iOS 12.1.4 doesn’t have a pathway in the settings to get where they tell you to go).
App Crashes too Much
Good idea but the app constantly crashes, to the point of being almost unusable. If they can fix the stability issues, I would probably give this 5 stars.
