Cellular Service

Managing cellular service doesn't get any easier.

Pre-Activated Connectivity
No need to hassle with cellular carriers, we include pre-activated SIM cards for simple cellular connectivity.

Contract Free
Turn your cameras' data connections ON or OFF in the web-app at any time with no additional charges.

Pay As You Go
Don't worry about committing to data plans you might not use. We use a flexible pay-as-you-go billing system, you pay at the end of each month for the total data used and how long your cameras were ON throughout the month.

Pooled Data
Data is pooled across all of your cameras. The more data you use, the cheaper it gets, and you only have one, hassle-free bill for all of your cameras.

We'll choose the best carrier for your area, check coverage below.

US Carriers

Note, our cameras cannot connect to Verizon towers. However, due to the large antennas on our cameras, we usually get good reception with our carriers in areas that customers tell us are "Verizon only".

Canadian Carriers

Data pricing is the same in Canada as it is for the US.

Global Coverage

Need coverage outside the US or Canada? We offer coverage in 185 countries! Data pricing varies in countries outside North America.

Contact us to check coverage and pricing in your area or country.

Connectivity Made Simple
Let's face it, dealing with cellular carriers is a pain, and billing can get complicated. We've made it as easy and flexible as possible. All you have to do is turn your data connections ON or OFF in our web app.

Data Calculator
Use our calculator to easily and accurately determine what your monthly bill will be.

Data Pricing Chart
You're charged for the exact amount of data used across all cameras each month. There are no required minimum usage thresholds or overage fees, and data usage is combined across all of your cameras.

Billing Details
Monthly charges consist of the following three components:

1) Connection Fee - a prorated fee of up to $8 per month per camera, depending on how long the camera's data connection is turned ON in the app each month. For example, if the camera is ON for only half the month, then the fee will only be $4 for that camera.

2) Data Fee - the total data used by all cameras on your Barn Owl account. No minimum usage or overage fees.

3) SMS Fee - sending commands to the cameras uses SMS messages. We charge $0.03 per SMS.

You're In Control
With our cameras, you have complete control over how much you pay each month. You can change the following camera settings anytime to manage data usage:

  • Select Photos or Videos
  • Select Image Resolution
  • Select Video Resolution & Length
  • Set Daily Limits
  • Turn Data Connections ON/OFF
