Once the device (called Popit Sense) is attached, it automatically recognizes when a pill has been popped by using three sensors. This information gets synced to the app via Bluetooth and the app reminds only if a pill has been missed. The smart, context-aware notifications reduce reminder fatigue and help build the habit of taking pills on time. The app also shows how pills have been taken, and has the option of automatically reminding caregivers if pills have been missed.
