Due to the covid 2019 break out, world business has gone slow. Considering this fact, to help our clients pass it, we continue to offer service to all clients without charge in the years 2020 and 2021.

Those unpaid invoices shall lead to the termination of accounts without further notice.
Below are comparisons with other widely used platforms with charges.
Protrack: to get the location on this platform, the user has to use their own Google map API.
Monitor: Monitor platform is charged at least 1.3 USD per device per month. Below is their charge plan.
Tracksolid: Google Map problem as below.
Geo-coding, we used to use open street. However, it is not enough for clients’ usage and leads to a bad user experience. We have to use paid Google Geo-coding service, which is a high cost. Below is the UniGuard charge policy starting from March 1st, 2023.
For devices bought from UniGuard, the charge is based on Monthly Online units, as below screenshot.
For devices bought from others, the charge is based on total added quantity.
