We can't answer this question exactly, because it depends on how many reports you schedule and how may alerts occur. But a typical graphical report with 6 sensors (i.e. a typical Quatropus setup) currently consumes about 250KB of data. So, in a month, if we assume twice daily reporting, and a flurry of 20 alerts over a couple of those days, then we have:

  • SMS reports/alerts: 30 x 2 + 20 = 80 texts
  • Email reports/alerts: (30 x 2 + 20) x 250KB = 20MB

Which is a small amount of data/texts compared to even the cheapest mobile phone plans.

Note: you may see higher data consumption if you have not disabled synchronisation of other non-MaxMon apps on the phone (see Configuring your Android phone).
