TechDen has created the first-ever product that combines an app parents use to manage screen time with a physical home that charges and stores our kids’ phones and tablets. Storing devices in The Den establishes a new mindset of unavailability and gives our devices a home of their own. The Den takes an “out of sight, out of mind” approach that teaches healthy digital habits and creates a positive balance with the screens in our lives.
TechDen is dedicated to helping families achieve harmony with technology. Our unique charging and storage device, The Den, teams up with the TechDen App to foster healthy habits for parents and kids.
Out of sight = Out of mind. The Den™ is a place for charging, storing, and managing devices that safely tucks phones and tablets away when they’re not in use, keeping them out of sight and out of mind.
Manage multiple devices at once
Securely charge and store two devices
Use with the TechDen app for complete device management
A simple app pairs with The Den, creating household harmony. It doesn’t shut down devices; it provides timely reminders and notifications about the device time your family scheduled.
Create schedules to remotely lock and unlock each door
Set time limits for device usage
Receive notifications about device removal and time usage
We created TechDen to encourage healthier screen use based on the kind of predictable routine kids respond to better. It lets families collaborate to set schedules and rewards, building trust and teaching kids to properly control their tech time.
Most of all, it creates more opportunities for the best interactions—the ones that happen face-to-face.

“Before TechDen, my son averaged 3 hours of screen time a day. After we set up The Den, we’ve been able to cut screen time to slightly over an hour [a day] with very few challenges. It’s been a great addition to our daily routine.”
– Ryan V.
“Both my Son and I love the TechDen. It was an easy and effective way to control his screen time. My son knew when the light was red it wasn’t a time he could use his device. Plus, I love the charging aspect of it. When he took his device out of The Den, I didn’t have to worry about it not being charged.”
– Mike, dad of two, Chicago, Illinois
“Kids in this generation need more active time, that’s where TechDen comes in. It gives parents more control as to how long their kids are on their devices. Love TechDen!”
– Crystal, mom of three, Tampa, Florida
“[With TechDen] kids become responsible, and won’t be upset with [their] parents for taking their devices, [plus] less arguments at home!”
– Manjari, dad of two, Issaquah, WA
“Before TechDen, my son averaged 3 hours of screen time a day. After we set up The Den, we’ve been able to cut screen time to slightly over an hour [a day] with very few challenges. That’s OVER 10 hours a week playing with friends and spending time with family that would have otherwise been spent on a screen!] It’s been a great addition to our daily routine.”
– Ryan, dad of one son, Appleton, Wisconsin
“[My kids] seem to not even want to use the tablets since they are out of sight locked away!”
– Matt, dad of two, Lansing, MI
“My son thought it was super cool that he had a vault for his phone each night, he looks forward to using it as much as I look forward to him getting a good night of sleep!”
— Chris, dad of two, Williamsport, Wisconsin
“I would recommend this for parents that have a hard time setting boundaries. Having something tangible a physical there helps with setting those boundaries. We’re pretty good with setting boundaries, but having something solid there really helps with keeping us all aware of our device usage. Putting our devices away for the night is liberating.”
– Pearl, mom of three, Romeoville, IL
“TechDen is the exact thing needed to place responsible and rewarding electronic device use in the hands of the parent and the child. Thanks to TechDen, it allowed my daughter and I time to focus on things that matter most…being a family.”
—Jeremy, dad of two, Lubbock, Texas
“TechDen is amazing! My 7 year old son loves coding. We want to foster this and his interest in technology. TechDen gave my son the independence to manage his tech time. And best yet empower him. It helped create and encourage balance with his screen time. Plus it’s nice not always having to be “the bad guy.” With TechDen he knows when he can use his device, and for how long. The notifications and rewards help so that he returns his device to The Den on-time.”
— Ashlie, mom of 2, Chicago, Illinois
