Phone and Case Compatibility

Please review the following information to determine if your mobile device is compatible with the Seek Compact line of thermal cameras. You can find more specific details and explanations in our Help Center.

Smartphone Case Compatibility:

Some thicker smartphone cases (especially ruggedized ones) do not provide enough clearance around the connection port. To use the camera you must either remove the case, or attach the camera using an extender/adapter.

Operating System Compatibility:

The Android and iOS Seek Thermal apps require a minimum of Android 4.3 and iOS 8.0, respectively. The apps will not download if your smartphone does not satisfy the minimum requirement.

NOTE: Android devices sometimes orient the microUSB connecter in different directions or locations. For correct usage the USB port should be located on the bottom, with the widest portion of the port aligned with the back of your smartphone. Many LG and HTC devices orient the connecter in the opposite direction, and many devices from Sony and Motorola often position the port on the side. In these cases it is recommended to use a microUSB cable or adapter to allow proper aiming and positioning of the camera. Testing has confirmed compatibility for with the following adapters
