The new, easy-to-use Malem wireless bedwetting alarm system makes it simple to be alerted when wetting occurs. At bedtime, your child attaches the Easy-Clip sensor to the outside of his or her close-fitting underwear. This sensor is connected to the 1.5” transmitter that magnetically attaches to the waistband. The small 3”x3”x3/4” battery-operated wireless receiver can be placed on a bedside table, dresser, or up to 50’ from child’s bed. A second receiver can be purchased to be placed in the parent's room.
Once urine is sensed, a loud sound comes from the receiver. Once this receiver is triggered by wetness, it continues to sound until the reset button is pushed. This helps ensure that you and your child wake up to the alarm, and your child gets out of bed to turn it off. A volume control dial on the receiver allows the user to control the level of sound. This bed wetting alarm also offers the choice of 8 random sounds or selecting one of 8 sounds to play each night.
Comments from the
The advantage of this wireless bed wetting alarm is that it can be used with any of your child's own underwear. The sensor is placed on the outside of the briefs and detects the first few drops of moisture. Choosing the best location for the receiver is up to the family. This small battery operated unit can be placed as close as a bedside table or as far away as across the room. The alarm must be placed in a location where the child can hear it in order to learn the behavior of getting up independently to the alarm, and ultimately to a full bladder. It should be placed far enough from the bed, so the child cannot reach over and turn the receiver off without getting out of bed to do so. The second receiver for the parent's room is nice for situations where parents may not hear the alarm. Parental involvement is important initially, so that your child learns the proper response to this sound.

Questions on Malem Wireless Bedwetting Alarm System
- From Nola at 2/15/12
- I can’t believe that we lost the receiver part to this alarm. Can we buy just that part or do we have to buy a complete new alarm?
- You can purchase just the part that you lost for $60.00. Call us (800-214-9605) and we will help you with getting the replacement part. Once you receive the new receiver, follow the instructions on “pairing” it with your current transmitter.
- From William at 10/19/11
- It seems that we have to replace the batteries frequently, at least once a week. Is this typical or are we doing something wrong?
- It is very important that you remove the transmitter/sensor from wet underwear after the alarm is triggered. If you only turn off the receiver/sound, the transmitter will continue to send signals and drain the battery. Remember to (a) turn off the receiver when not in use and (b) remove the transmitter/sensor from the wet underwear after it sounds.
- From Sherri at 8/17/11
- I can’t hear the alarm from my room because I’m at the other end of the house. I think my son is sleeping through the sound. What do you suggest?
- IYou can either use a baby monitor in your room or can buy a second wireless receiver ($60) for this alarm. The second receiver is “paired” with the system you have and sounds simultaneously in your room when the one in your son’s room is triggered. That way you can make sure he gets up when the alarm sounds. Call us (800-214-9605) for help ordering the second receiver.
- From Ally at 6/11/11
- My alarm doesn’t sound. What should I check?
- If new, check to make sure the isolator tag is removed from the battery compartment. If you have been using the alarm, replace the batteries. Turn the receiver (large unit) on. A red LED light should flash. Replace the batteries with 2 new AA Alkaline ones. Be sure to observe the polarity markings.
Does the transmitter (the small unit) red LED light glow through the plastic casing when the lever on the Easy-Clip is pressed down? If not, replace the battery (A23 12V).
If replacing the batteries does not solve the problem, re-tune the receiver and transmitter by following the directions in the instruction manual.
To remove the back of the transmitter: Hold the transmitter with the easy clip sensor down toward the floor. The front of the transmitter should be in the palm of your hand and the back half with the clear strap facing you. Pull the clear plastic strap down tight over the magnetic block. You should see a slight space between the magnetic block and a “slider piece” of green plastic with a larger space above. Slide a small screwdriver into this space. Push the “slider piece” up or twist gently and the two pieces should start to come apart. Use your fingernail or screwdriver to gently pry the pieces apart.

4 weeks in, seems highly effective
- Comments about Malem Wireless Bedwetting Alarm System:
Our 4 1/2 year old daughter loves her "underpants alarm", and updates her chart every day. Four weeks in and we've already seen a great improvement. Dry for five or six nights in a row...unheard of before using this alarm.
We found the instructions useful...read 'em, as they are not as you'd expect (or not as we expected). For example, before buying this alarm, I used to lift our daughter (half asleep) to and from the bathroom, and we had read, as I'm sure some of you have, that we should reduce fluids before bedtime. My wife and I had not reduced fluids, as it seemed not quite right, but we were considering it. Both lifting and fluid-reduction are a no-no, according to the manufacturer, and it seems the manufacturer was right on both counts, at least for our daughter. She drinks as much as she wants whenever she wants - even right before reading time - yet her progress has steadily improved.
If the main receiver is off while the sensor contacts are closed, there's no alarm but the sensor battery will drain in just a few hours. I did that the second day.
Except for the minor sensor-design glitch, the system appears to work as promised, which is a welcome thing to parents like us who were wondering what we could do that might help our daughter take care of something most of us take for granted.
Still relatively early in the twelve-week program, I guess, but we're tracking for success. In twelve weeks, I hope we can say the same.
At least for us, involving our daughter in all aspects - including shopping for it, unwrapping it when it arrived, and being in charge of taking it on and off - was key to her wanting to wear it and generally making the whole experience as fun as it can be.
- bottom line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
