Quickstart Guide

Requires Sensera Sitecloud for operation.

Download Sensera's SiteCloud Datasheet

Sensera’s SiteCloud Service is offered for cellular as well as WiFi. SiteCloud cellular service plans have limits on the amount of data that can be uploaded from the camera to the SiteCloud per month. The amount of data required to be uploaded for the camera to operate will depend on some of the user-configurable camera settings. SiteCloud service includes a notification feature that will let users know if they are nearing a data limit for the plan during the month. This allows the user to modify the camera configuration to remain within the plan and avoid plan overage charges. Cellular plans are based on data usage per month. Overage charges apply for data usage over the monthly limit.

The following factors affect total data usage per month:

  • Camera Resolution – typically you will have this set at the highest setting (3264 x 1836) which provides a 6 MP image for the MC26. Lower resolutions can be used to reduce data consumption.
  • Time-lapse Configuration – The main impact on data usage is the number of images collected for time-lapse. The “Interval”, the Hours/day, and the Days per week settings all affect the total number of pictures taken, and therefore the data usage.
  • On-demand pictures – Clicking the button to take an on-demand image, takes one picture which will be uploaded to the WebApp server. This uses data from your plan

The following table shows some typical configurations and the data plan that would be recommended. Further details in estimating data plan usage can be found in the Installation and User Guide.
