How much light does Spike need to work?

Spike uses the camera of your smartphone or tablet, and you need enough light to see where you’re pointing the Spike laser (cross hairs), to see the object you are measuring (especially the corners of your object), and then to view and measure the object from within the Spike app or Cloud. 

Clearly seeing the object you are measuring and having contrast around the edges of the object are helpful when drawing the alignment rectangle and taking measurements, as you are able to be more precise with the placement of your anchors (points).
