Smart Pill Dispenser or Bottle Cap

Currently I am planning on taking apart my WYZE Sensor and stick the circuit card inside a 3D printed pop top lid for a prescription bottle with a magnet for the latch of the lid. That way when the lid is opened a notification goes to my phone showing that it was opened. The reason for my hack is that my
wife asks me at dinner, did I take my Metformin, sometimes I know and other times I don’t. The Sensor hack would solve the problem since her phone will show her when she opened the bottle top.

Or maybe even a complete smart pill case/dispenser. These are available on the market, but I believe they are pretty costly. Wyze could probably do it cheaper and better. Would you mind if I added that to the title of this post?


Would Wyze do it Cheaper and better? Cheaper I can see the less expensive part of it I can see. But they would just look at another companies again and just do a small little tweak and put the Wyze logo on it in rush out the door

Loki, sure add that to the title if you like. I only care that the tech rolls out and saves lives.


I would think using a regular pill case and the sensor would be easier mechanically just in the adding of the sensor than working with a bottle. Probably sturdier in the long run also
Great idea though!


This is very useful for people with Opioid addiction. The pills can be tracked by the doctor as well. Someway so that the pills only come out 1 by 1.
