    My Kids Hate It – Which is How I Know I Love It, July 7, 2016

    Since the guys at Microsoft refuse to build responsible parental time controls into the Xbox One – I had to take matters into my own hands. This item is dated (not sure they even make them anymore) but it works well with just a modicum of manual reading and common sense. I limit my kids Xbox time with it, and can block out entire hours in evenings and after school to encourage homework and housework tasks are done. My kids hate it – so that tells you it must be doing its job.

    The BOB has saved me from certain death due to fatal yelling-induced laryngitis. I never have to nag my kids to stop playing video games or watching movies any more. Set-up was simple. You just have each user select a 4-digit PIN, then, as the master user, set up parameters for their use of the device to which you’ve connected the BOB (in our case, we connected it to the TV – that way it controls the XBOX, Wii, BluRays, Apple TV and cable). If you choose to set it up this way, just keep in mind that it won’t control use of the Wii-U game pad, since it doesn’t require use of the TV screen. You can set an amount of time for each user on either a daily or weekly basis. Then you select the hours during which the time can be used (this solved our problem of tweens getting out of bed to play late at night). A warning tone sounds when there is 1 minute of time remaining, so they are easily able to save a game before the power turns off. The BOB allows you to set up 1 master user, and up to 6 additional users. We gave each child an account, then also set up a “babysitter” PIN with a longer time limit, which we give to the sitter to use for movie night when we’re out.
    Tips: #1 Don’t lose the keys!! The way the BOB works requires that you plug the power supply of the TV (or whatever device you’re controlling) into the back of the unit, under a locking cover. If the physical key is lost, you have no ability to remove the BOB. Replacement keys can be ordered online.
    #2 The BOB can occasionally malfunction due to interference if it is placed too close to the controlled device. I thought my husband was going to lose it when he moved the unit over a bit closer to the TV during his preparations to watch the “big game”. A few minutes after kick-off, the TV started randomly turning off. And, of course, he couldn’t find the key to remove the BOB. Luckily, I read the instruction manual that suggested moving the unit farther away in case of interference. We’re still married.
    In summary, this is a great way to allocate screen time and to make sure that kids don’t spend all day gaming or watching TV. They’ve adjusted well, and I’m nagging way less.

    Perfect for training a teenager with an XBox addiction, May 30, 2015

    Perfect for our needs, although I am using it a little bit differently than they recommended.

    I have three teens with different gaming preferences, and we were having nearly daily arguments over gaming console usage. So I wanted something that would let me throttle their video game console use to certain amounts of time at certain times of the day. Also, I didn’t want a unit that required me to handle physical tokens, but I did want something that would let me handle each child differently. I also didn’t want a system that the children could steal each other’s time. This uses unique PIN codes for each child, which is perfect.

    HOW I use this box may be unique, and something you could consider.

    One of the commonly-cited problems with this unit is that cutting power to an XBox can wipe out saved games or damage the hard drive. And cutting power to the TV disables the TV for other purposes, as well as causing trouble with the TV’s internet features. I wanted to not affect regular TV or DVD use – only the game consoles. So I installed this to cut the power to an HDMI switch box which selects between several gaming consoles. When the HDMI switch power goes off, no signal can get to the TV from the consoles. But the TV and consoles don’t lose power, so nothing is damaged, and I can still use the TV for basic satellite and/or cable.

    Along with this, I also bought a sheet of tamper-evident holographic stickers, and used those to attach the HDMI cables to the HDMI switch and to the consoles. This way, my kids cannot simply swap cables without me knowing it.

    So I’ve set it up for each of my three children to have their own PIN code and an associated amount of time per week. The logging features let me see how much has been used so far in a week. (I’m happy to report that the logging let me catch child #2 using child #3’s time, when #2 guessed #3’s PIN code.) And checking the log lets me see how each child uses time during the week. #2 uses it all in the first couple days, for example, so I can help counsel them about delayed gratification.

    All in all, it’s a great tool at a very reasonable price, which has given me much-needed improved ability to raise my children in a digital world.
