We know many of you use your old smartphones with Salient Eye . After all that’s the whole point right ?
So we wanted to make sure even the really old devices can run Salient Eye, and we decided to add a real device with android 2.2 to our lab.
This turned out to be a real hard task . There’s just no where to find a device that was last sold 5 years ago with android version 2.2 (FROYO). We searched on stores on the streets, on google , ebay, amazon, aliexpress, dealextream . We tried to find a used one… we looked on billboards , facebook groups and what not. When we finally found one on ali express it turned out to be an android 2.3 . But after some more search we finally found and bought this LG device.
As a bonus we also found 2 used iPhone 4 devices so we bought them as well to test our upcoming iOS app and make sure “Salient Eye Home security system” will work on your old iPhone 4 (2011).
Let the tests begin …
Hey, I happen to have an old HTC desire running 2.2 i was hoping to use with your product. Any idea if and when you will support it?
Thank you, this app is great and gives me peace of mind. The house next to mine was robbed today, and I leave for a month tomorrow. I had the app working on an old tablet just as I wanted in a few minutes.
Huawei X1 Android phones are a dime a dozen here in New Zealand, running 2.2 🙂
