Designed for PlayStation and Xbox games consoles

QTIME works with all modern consoles including Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4), PS4 Pro, PS4 Slim, PlayStation Classic, 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.

QTIME replaces the HDMI cable

Unplug the HDMI cable that connects the games console to the TV and replace it with the QTIME gadget.

Now you can set time limits in the QTIME app. When today's time is up, the screen simply turns off.

Designed to be kid-proof

QTIME detects if it has been unplugged from the TV screen and starts beeping loudly until it is plugged back in. It also immediately sends an alert to your phone.

More studying & family time

Too much gaming time can cause problems for children; difficulties going to sleep on time, lower concentration at school and insufficient exercise.

Global health organisations recommend limiting children to 2-hours of screen time (or less) each day.

Get peace of mind. QTIME's parental controls ensure that time limits for video gaming are respected every day.
