Does the water level monitor require cell phone service?

When it comes to choosing between satellite and cellular technology for your water tank level monitor, there are a few things to consider.

Cellular technology operates on cellular networks, which are typically provided by mobile network operators. These networks cover a specific geographic area and require a nearby cellular tower for communication. Cellular technology is generally less expensive than satellite technology, but it may not be as reliable in remote or rural areas where cellular coverage may be limited.

Satellite technology, on the other hand, operates using satellites orbiting the earth. This means that it can provide coverage virtually anywhere, including remote or rural areas where cellular coverage may not be available. However, satellite technology is typically more expensive than cellular technology and offers less frequent water level updates.

Ultimately, the choice between satellite and cellular technology depends on your specific needs and location. If you need reliable coverage in remote or rural areas, satellite technology may be the better choice. However, if you are operating in an area with good cellular coverage, cellular technology may be more cost-effective.
