What's the difference between a SAMi-3 Camera and the SAMi-3 Kit?

SAMi-3 Camera is a great choice for people who wish to use their own Apple device and monitor through their home Wi-Fi router.

SAMi-3 Kit is an out of the box ready SAMi monitoring system. Each Kit is individually tested and set-up by a SAMi founder. When you receive it, simply plug the camera and router in, and open the SAMi app to begin monitoring.

Kit Includes:
- SAMi-3 Camera
- SAMi Router (optimized for your specific SAMi)
- New iPad (with SAMi app pre-loaded and connected)

Supported Apple devices

Apple Devices: All versions of iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad
Software: iOS 7 or later

If your Apple device isn't more than 5 years old, you should be fine. It's very uncommon for Apple devices made after 2017 to have any issues. The real question is whether you can run iOS 7 or not. Here's how you check your Apple iOS version if you want to confirm (Settings -> General -> Software Update).
