Abnormal Movement Alarm

SAMi's default alarm will ignore normal sleep movements (such as rolling over), and alert only when abnormal or prolonged motion is present. You can easily customize the alarm if needed to fit your unique situation. 

  • Shaking
  • Jerking
  • Spasms
  • Peddling
  • Rocking
  • Twitching
  • Finger or toe wagging
  • Eye fluttering
  • Sleep walking
  • Restless Legs
  • Coughing spells
  • Vomiting 
  • Crying
  • Playing / non-sleep
  • ... and much more!

While our default settings are appropriate for most, SAMi is capable of detecting a wide range of movements and is highly customizable

"a literal miracle. We take it everywhere"

...for us, most of his seizures are at night time when we all are asleep, and missing a seizure can be fatal... My husband and I have been able to actually get a full nights rest without worrying we will miss one.

Blake in Colorado, March 2023

"So much We wouldn't have known"

"My son has had two seizures in the last 24 hours. Without this camera we wouldn't have known they were going on. I've been amazed over and over."

Kirsty in UK, May 2022

"I actually cried, you have no idea"

"I would have given anything to have this monitor 2-4 years ago. I can finally sleep and couldn't live without this camera and app. I literally cried after that first night when I realized I could actually trust this thing.

Sarah in Idaho, March 2023

"So much easier than trying to film with my phone"

The recordings have helped our son get proper medical attention whilst also allowing us to concentrate on him during a seizure rather than trying to film it. 

Caleb in Texas, June 2023

"recordings have saved me countless hours"

Before SAMi I was scanning through baby camera footage on 4x. If I went any faster and i'd miss something... any slower and i'd be there all day. The organized recordings of just the motion are truly a game changer.  

Eric in Florida, July 2023

"Our daughter is thriving"

Our daughter is thriving again. We showed our neurologist video from the SAMI device and that helped us to create a new plan for her medication. We are so thankful for the peace of mind that this resource has given us. I never thought I was going to get that.

John in Oregon, May 2022

"The SAMi Monitor is Amazing"

I just wanted to tell you that the SAMi monitor is amazing and has caught every seizure my daughter has had since we got it. And because she has so many different kinds, being able to show the doctors the recordings is amazing.

Mbong Family, August 2022

Comparing SAMi: Other ways to Monitor

Note - we recommend the "Swiss Cheese approach" to monitoring: No monitoring method is perfect, so consider using multiple if possible.

14.png__PID:f34cdea2-8b94-408a-9f05-3b8a633ef62b

Co-sleeping

Co-sleeping is the gold standard for monitoring a child but it can be very hard on both parents and child. Most parents are very sensitive to their child’s movements, which means that sounds and even normal tossing and turning results in multiple awakenings. SAMi can provide you the reassurance you need to eventually move away from co-sleeping, without compromising safety. 

15.png__PID:4cdea28b-9450-4adf-853b-8a633ef62b18

Baby Monitors and Security Cameras

Similar to co-sleeping, hypervigilant parents typically are awakened multiple times in the night by benign noises. SAMi provides the option to filter out the usual motion and noise that would be reported when using general-use products like Baby Monitors and Security Cameras. Fine-tuning SAMi's alarm sensitivity will greatly reduce false alerts. Fewer false alarms equal better sleep!

  • We recommend testing any alerts out before relying
  • Parents often awakened throughout the night to benign noises

Wearables and Mattress Monitors

Movement monitors that detect physical shaking generally only detect and alert in the case of rhythmic motion. They also do not provide a live video and audio display for quick confirmation or make recordings for later review. With SAMi, there's nothing to wear either, so no need to worry about something slipping off their wrist or running out of battery.

  • Generally only designed to detect convulsive movements
  • Movements in face, feet or other areas may not trigger alarm
  • Does not provide a live view for quick confirmation

Track

Keep track of how often certain events occur and how long they last.

If the alarm is triggered, determine whether you need to take action or intervene
