How our tiered pricing works

Each tier indicates the cost and the duration in months. The price is for the entire period.

Example: If you select a 3 Month tier under SILVER, you are paying for all 3 months. The total points awarded upfront will be 15,000. You camera can utilize these points at any rate during the 3 month period.

To the right of each tier pricing is a Cost Per Point amount. The cpp tells you what it costs you per point as your camera uploads media files to the portal.

Unused Points are not carried over into future periods.

Automatic Billing option

Check this option on your plan to have the system continue billing you automatically.

Points Reserve Option

Purchase additional points to be used at any time should you run out of standard points. These points never expire and can be used for the life time of your plan.

Pay as you go Plan features

  • Do not require a contract.
  • Cancellable at any time.
  • Are automatically renewable.
  • Will use Consolidated Billing. All of your active plans will generate a charge on the same day of the month.

What are Image Points?

  • On each event, your camera will upload a photo to the portal.
  • You determine your upload cost in points using the chart below.
  • After reviewing the uploaded photos, you may request a larger size photo (Photo Mode) or the playable video (Video Mode).
  • By only uploading a photo for each event, you will know the cost ahead of time, and avoid wasted points and battery power.
  • As you browse photos in the gallery, the points cost is enumerated in the caption.
  • The video upload cost is shown if the camera is in Video Mode.
  • You will know all points costs before you use the points putting you in complete control.

The point cost per photo is as follows:

Upload Resolution Photo Mode Video Mode
Standard Low 1.0 1.0
Standard Medium 2.5 2.0
Standard High 4.0 3.0
High Def 7.0 6.0
High Res MAX 13 N/A
Note: Increasing Upload Quality will result in higher point costs under Camera Settings.

PIR and Time Lapse events

In Photo or Video mode, your camera wakes, captures and uploads a photo to the portal. it will consume points at a rate based on its Camera Mode, Upload Resolution and Photo Quality settings. Use the chart above to understand how your plan's Image Points are used.

Video and Original Image upload requests

Your camera processes these as it connects to the portal. The Image Points used are based on the size of the file captured to the camera's SD Card. The size will vary based on Photo Resolution or Video Resolution, Quality, and Duration settings. These files will be much larger than the uploaded photos per event, However, you are in control of the file sizes to some extent by the options you choose under camera settings.

Remote Control and SMS commands

Your camera can operate with Remote Control turned on (see Camera Settings). In remote control mode the camera remains in a standby state where an SMS command can wake the camera up so it can snap a photo and/or talk to the server. There are two buttons in the portal when Remote Control is enabled, these are SNAP and WAKE. SNAP will send a real time command to the camera, waking it up to capture either photo or video based on Camera Mode then upload the photo to the portal. The WAKE button will cause the camera to report in to the server immediately as if the HeartBeat event had just fired. As the camera contacts the portal, it will process any queued actions, such as Download Settings, Reguest High Res MAX, Request Video, etc.

There will be a .10 USD charge to your account per each SMS command delivered to the camera. The cost of each SMS command will be deducted from your plan's Points Reserve value (if present).

Note: Not all camera models and networks will support Remote Control and SMS features.
