Understanding Pricing and Usage :

There is multiple factors that need considered when asking "Will I get charged?"  

  • COST
    • Street View API usage costs every time the image is displayed on any dashboard
    • Cost for the first 100,000 images is $0.007 ($7 per 1,000)
    • You will only be charged if you exceed $200 month
  • MONTHLY CREDIT
    • When signing up for your account, you will have $200 per month credit
  • CALL VOLUME
    • Each time you are dispatched and alarm screen shows, the Street View API will be called
  • NUMBER OF DASHBOARDS
    • If you have multiple dashboards, and each dashboard gets every alarm, the API will be called on EACH dashboard
  • EXAMPLE SCENARIO 
    • Average Monthly calls 300 and you have 5 dashboards which get every alarm
      • 300 * 5 = 1,500 API calls
      • 1500 * $0.007 = $10.50 cost
