I didn't know these were available. I currently have to take up to 8 meds while recuperating from a medical procedure and while this is hardly a complex task, I find it easy to forget and miss one when I have a busy day. But I will stick with my dollar store manual dispenser for now.

Try searching “electronic dosette”, sorry I’m only familiar with user filled manual boxes, or blister packs prepared by the pharmacy.

Same, looking for something to provide remote dispensing to inlaws. Sometimes they forget, or mix up pills, even when we've already organized it into the manual pill boxes. Main issue is the forgetfulness.

Automatic dispensers have alarms. Fancy ones have notifications to alert caregivers when there was a miss and the caregiver (in our case us) can give them a call to remind them.
