Farmo is committed to the most transparent and easy-to-understand pricing model for its customers.
The principle is this:
1. Pay for your hardware with all prices clearly displayed on the website.
2. Pay a subscription per device that covers data, alerts, data processing and the dashboard. Your total subscription price = the number of devices that you have.
At the moment we have LoRaWAN and NB-IOT devices, with satellite devices coming in 2022.
LoRaWAN device subscriptions are cheaper because these devices don't have a sim card or telco carrier charges, but they have the capital cost of installing a gateway.
NB-IoT devices have higher subscription charges but they can be deployed wherever there is telco coverage, without the cost of installing your own gateway.
You can mix and match device types. They all end up on your dashboard together.
Mixed farming property in Cavendish, Victoria.Coverage review:
- 30% of the property is covered by pre-existing LoRaWAN coverage installled by the local council.
- Areas not covered by pre-existing LoRaWAN could be covered with a gateway installed on top of the shearing shed.
- Second block, 40kms from the homestead has good 4g coverage but no pre-existing LoRaWAN.
Install a LoRaWAN gateway on the home block shearing shed (using a 4G sim card inside for the backhual). The areas on the main block not reached by this gateway will be covered by the council gateway coverage. Deploy NB-IoT devices on the second remote block, where there is no mains power and installing a gateway would be costly.
