What is "Shared Data"?
Shared Data is a “pool” of data that you can add to your Spartan Cameras to. This means you can share data between your cameras and eliminate the need to keep them on multiple plans at the same time. Instead of buying an individual plan for each of your cameras, you can buy a single plan and share the data between all of your Spartan cameras.
Every cellular camera from Spartan Camera requires data to send pictures and videos to your devices. With our new Shared Data Plan, sharing data between your cameras has never been easier!
Have up to 10 total cameras on our most robust data plans.
Add a line to your plan for just an additional $5 a month per camera. No activation or deactivation fees!
Take advantage of some of the most competitive prices in the industry.
You're buying Real Data. We don't limit you to a certain number of images or videos.
Mix and match between AT&T and Verizon cameras on a single Shared Data Plan.
Easily check your data usage and control your data plans from our app and website.
Usage and data needs can vary from user to user. If you experience a lot of activity at your sites or want to monitor your land year-round, the 12-month plan is highly recommended! For less active areas or cameras that aren’t used as often, a smaller plan may be a better fit.
Each Shared Data Plan has a maximum camera limit. Our smallest plan allows you to share data between 3 cameras and our largest plan allows you to share data between up to 10 cameras. Each additional camera will add $5 per month to that plan. For example, a 1-month plan charges $5 per additional camera. A 3-month plan would charge $15 per additional camera.
Shared Data Plans are divided into four different renewal periods: 1-month plans, 3-month plans, a 6-month plan, and a 12-month plan. Keep in mind, however, if all the data allowance is used the plan will automatically auto-renew.

For each size of data plan, there is a cap on the number of cameras that can be added. The price for adding the camera will be the dollar amount specified in the field.
EX: On the Monthly 1GB Data Plan, adding a camera/line will be $5 per payment period, up to 4 cameras.
The short answer is that you can check this support article for estimates of data per image or video.
The longer answer is that these values are only approximate based on image/video size, signal reception at the camera site, and even the amount of colors or detail in each sent video or image. Please read more here.
The cameras are $5 per month, and then totaled for that payment period whenever you activate or renew your plan.
EX: If the plan is a yearly plan, it will renew once per year. Each additional camera after the first will cost $60 at the time of payment. This means you are paying $5 per camera per month. In other words, $60 for 12 months is $5 per month per additional camera.

"Real Data" is what your camera uses to transmit pictures, video, livestream and camera setting changes. Other companies' cellular cameras set limitations by the number of images or videos, regardless of how much data was used or how much that cost the provider. We're only charging you for data plans so you can have more control over your cameras.
