Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Hardware + Device Cloud presented together?

When you purchase Particle IoT development kits or Systems on a Module (SoM), you are not buying a piece of standalone silicon. Instead, you are getting a bundle: IoT hardware that comes pre-programmed to work with a full-featured Device Cloud. This is one of the main value propositions of using Particle — it's an integrated solution that allows you to focus on what makes your IoT product unique.

How does Device Cloud pricing for standalone devices work?

Standalone devices are those that are not part of a mesh network. They have their own direct connection to the Particle Device Cloud (using Wi-Fi, Cellular, or Ethernet connectivity) and largely act independently from one another.

Standalone devices are billed per device per month. The per device cost is a factor of the type of connectivity (i.e. Wi-Fi vs. Cellular) the device uses and the total number of devices you have in your fleet.

How Device Cloud pricing for Particle Mesh work?

Mesh is priced per network per month instead of per device like standalone Wi-Fi or Cellular devices. This is because with Particle Mesh, you are creating a system of devices that work together to solve a problem.

There are three Device Cloud network plans tailored to suit the needs of common network topologies: Micro, High Availability, and Large Site. Each plan comes with an allotment of total devices in the network, as well as an included number of mesh gateways to facilitate responsible mesh deployments.

You may choose to add additional mesh nodes (non-gateways) beyond what is included in your network plan in packs of 5 devices for an additional $2 per network per month. You may do this up until a total network size of 30 devices on the Micro Network plan, or 100 devices on the High Availability plan.

How is cellular data billed?

Cellular data is included as part of access to the Device Cloud. Each standalone cellular device has 3MB of cellular data included per month. Regardless of where data is consumed around the world, the first 3MB per device are always included in the standard cellular Device Cloud rate ($2.99 per device/month).

Mesh networks using cellular gateways also include cellular data: Micro Networks include 5MB of data, and High Availability Networks include 10MB of data. Cellular data for mesh networks are pooled across all gateways in the network.

If your device consumes more than 3MB of cellular data in a given month, you will be charged an overage rate per MB used. For most countries, the overage rate is $0.40/MB.

What about Ethernet?

Particle's 3rd generation of hardware now supports Ethernet connectivity. In short, Ethernet devices will be treated the exact same as Wi-Fi devices from a pricing perspective.

Standalone Ethernet devices will be subject to the same Device Cloud pricing rules as a standalone Wi-Fi device.

Mesh networks on the Micro plan using an Ethernet gateway will be billed the same way as a Micro Network using a Wi-Fi gateway.
