FAQs

What operating systems do I need for the SAM app?
To run the SAM app you will need a computer with either Windows 8.1 and up or Mac OS X 10.9 and up.

What Hardware will I need to run SAM?
For initial setup, you will need a computer with Windows 8.1 and up or Apple OS X 10.9 an up. The minimum requirements for a Mac and Windows laptop is 4GB RAM. The wireless blocks communicate to the app via Bluetooth 4.0. If your computer does not have Bluetooth 4.0, don¢‚¬t worry because each kit is provided with a Bluetooth 4.0 USB dongle. If you use Windows you will need to use a Bluetooth 4.0 dongle. Single wireless blocks do not contain Bluetooth 4.0 Dongles.

How long does each block need to be charged for, and how long will they last?
The blocks don't need longer than 30-40 minutes to be fully charged.‚ The blocks will turn from red to green when they're fully charged, but mind that when you unplug the block from the charger and turn it back on, the block will turn red to signify the power is on - this doesn't mean it's out of battery. Each block is different, but all have battery saving modes that activate after 20 minutes without use. The blocks should last anywhere from heavy use at a few days, to infrequent use of a couple months.
