What Is Shared Data?
Shared Data functions as a "pool" that lets you share data between all of your Spartan cameras on a single plan. Instead of buying a plan for each camera, you can start with one camera on a plan, then add additional cameras. This eliminates the need to maintain multiple plans at the same time.
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! In addition, all Spartan Shared Data Plans come with Premium Service, so there is no need to purchase Premium Credits.
Mix and match between AT&T and Verizon cameras on a single Shared Data Plan.
Shared data is the total data amount that all devices on the plan can share for the duration of the data plan subscription.
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, 6-month plans, and 12-month plans. Keep in mind that if all of the data allowance on a plan is used, it will automatically auto-renew.

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.
