drybuddyezPeople researching bedwetting alarms are looking for a positive combination of price and quality so that their loved-ones can have the best possible experience overcoming nocturnal enuresis without spending a lot.

DryBuddyEZ has lots of functions and features, and it costs under $50. Capabilities include music, vibration & combination with continuous volume control, a single light to show status (On/Off/Alarm/Battery), a firm plastic clip on the alarm which holds tighter than other systems, and the ability to use safety pins for further positioning flexibility. Alarm volume is about 90 decibels at close range, which is right at the edge of what OSHA standards allow in the workplace, so it ought to awaken deep sleepers. The weight is only 2 ounces including the batteries, so it’s very light.

drybuddyez packageDryBuddy recommends cotton underwear because cotton lets urine soak in and the sensor clip can remain close to the patient’s body. They also also recommend attaching the alarm box to a night shirt.

Because bedwetting training can still result in accidents for a few weeks, use Pull-Ups or diapers over the underwear with the clip attached to the underwear, not to the Pull-Ups or diapers. Until the person learns to control bedwetting, these measures will help absorb extra moisture. Doing so also keeps the clip from coming off by excessive pressure on the clip from the mattress and as the person moves at night.

All DryBuddy units are FDA registered. You can even get FSA insurance reimbursement for them. Each comes with a one year limited warranty (90 days for the sensor), but batteries and physical breakage and abuse are not covered.


Common complaints from DryBuddyEZ users are that there is only one sound for the alarm leading to auditory accommodation in wearers such that they won’t wake up consistently after a few nights of the alarm going off. The plastic movable pieces are brittle and break easily. The sensor has been known to quit working after 2 weeks, is very small yet still uncomfortable, and hard to clip into a pull-up.


Overall, it is recommended that buyers go with the DryEasy bedwetting alarm for a more appropriate balance of reliability and cost.
