The QTIME hardware device.

Designed for PlayStation and Xbox games consoles.

QTIME works with all modern consoles including Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4), PS4 Pro, PS3, Xbox One (X/S) and Xbox 360.

There's no risk of damaging the games console. It simply turns off the screen when the time limit is reached.

When the time is up, the screen turns off.

No more battles. Once the time is up, the screen turns off automatically.

QTIME beeps and flashes to give your child a 10-minute warning to shut down. They are also notified by the 'QTIME for Kids' app.

Set a time window and allowance for each day of the week.

Quickly set a time window and allowance for each day of the week using the QTIME mobile app.

Set different time limits for each day, or use the same timing every day.

QTIME is a smart HDMI cable that pairs wirelessly with your home Wi-Fi.

It replaces the cable that usually connects your child's games console to the TV screen.

It supports the latest HDMI 2.0 standard and it's 4K ready.
