Plans and Pricing

The Free Tier

You receive 10k free packets every month. This is enough to send data to the cloud every five minutes for a month. The table below compares different packet spending rates:

1 packet per 5 minutes 1 packet per minute 2 packets per minute
1 hour 12 60 120
24 hours 288 1,440 2,880
1 week 2,016 10,080 20,160
1 month 8,928 44,640 89,280
extra packets required 0 34,640 79,280

Purchase Extra Packets

If you need a higher throughput, you can purchase extra packets. These packets are used only when you have no free packets left. To view prices, refer to the Pricing page.

The web UI's header displays the number of available packets. You can click it for more information. In the invoked menu, click the Buy more packets button to purchase additional packets:

The same functionality is available in the Pricing Plan category of your account settings:

Packet Spending Rate

You can spend packets at any rate. Unspent free and purchased packets are carried over to the next month.

Send Data When Out of Packets

If you run out of packets, you can still send data at 1 packet per hour.

Control the Spending Rate

You can specify a personal spending cap to ensure that you never spend too many packets in rapid succession. To do this, go to your account settings and locate the Pricing Plan category. Use the Packets limit per hour slider to specify the spending cap.

Spending Cap

The minimum cap is 1 packet an hour—the maximum is unlimited.

Set Up Your Device

When you write your device's scripts, make sure to send data to the cloud at a rate based on your budget and requirements.
