Power Budgeting

Guaranteed battery life

summarize Summary
Prevent unexpected battery drains caused by poor signal

Prevents unscheduled visits

You might only be near the device every 2 years: in this scenario it’s generally better to lose a few updates than allow a device to struggle in temporarily poor signal conditions. The variable power budget allows you to set a threshold after which updates should be abandoned.

Power Limit per update

By using power budgeting, you can ensure that devices do not take too much power when network conditions are poor.

The budget feature acts as a failsafe and allows us to guarantee a certain battery life when it is turned on.
