Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to pay anything to use Particle Mesh devices?
We just launched our next generation of Particle hardware. For mesh deployments, Particle will charge product creators an additional monthly fee in addition to our baseline Device Cloud pricing for Argon and Boron devices acting as gateways within a Particle Mesh network. All Particle customers will get 10 free gateway upgrades for prototyping and evaluating Particle Mesh. All local communications between mesh endpoints are free.
Why is Hardware + Device Cloud presented together?
When you purchase Particle development kits or connectivity modules, 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 is cellular data billed?
Cellular data is included as part of access to the Device Cloud. Each 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).
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 counts as a "billable" device?
A billable device is a device that will receive a non-zero line item for Device Cloud access on your upcoming invoice. A billable device:
- Has come online at least once. We won't bill you for devices that haven't ever been turned on.
- No longer qualifies for Device Cloud promotional pricing. This includes first 3 months free for cellular devices, or first 100 devices free for Wi-Fi.
- Uses a Particle SIM that is in the active state (cellular only). Devices using deactivated SIMs are not billable. In addition, 3rd-party SIMs(100 or less) are not billable.
