Depending on how you setup your FarmBot, the device will send and receive different amounts of data. For users who are connecting the device to the internet with a cellular or other metered data connection plan, the amount of data transmitted may be of concern.

These numbers are not meant to show the exact amount of data your device will use, as that will depend on your exact configuration and other variables. FarmBot Inc cannot be held liable for unexpected data usage charges.
