SAMi™ is a sleep activity monitor for caregivers and individuals who need to carefully watch for unusual movements at night. During sleep, audio-video information from a remote infrared video camera is sent to an app running on an iOS device such as an iPhone or iPod Touch. The SAMi app records and analyzes the video for unusual activity. When an unusual event is detected, an alarm is sounded, followed by live sound and video from the SAMi network camera. Within seconds, the individual/caregiver can take any necessary action.
