Remote disconnects every few days, requiring device reset

I have a Roku 4. Every 2-3 days, the remote disconnects. The pair button doesn't work, nor does using the phone app to try a manual pair. The only way to repair the remote with the device is a hard reset (either using the phone app or pulling the plug). Obviously, this is an annoying inconvenience and one my young children can't solve on their own. Any advice? Thanks.

That's an old model, it time remotes give out. I would for go using wifi remote, since your roku 4 accepts IR commands go with a cheap universal remote from target or the dollar store. Just look for one that has roku listed.
