IoT over Cellular Service/Hardware Recommendations?

I'm specifically considering "narrow" cell for IoT devices. This service is designed to sent handfuls of bytes for alarm and data monitoring type applications, with a cost as low as a buck a month or less.

My research has been pre-empted by this – which looks like a motorhome from a future where earth tones are still popular. It's a 1976 GMC Motorhome, with some unexpected gremlins....including an alternator voltage regulator failure a week after we got it which melted a wiring harness.

Looks pretty "theft proof" to me - nobody would want to go to jail over that thing.
If you need battery monitoring, gps tracking, etc, go to a reliable source like Digikey - they sell SIM cards and plans for IOT at a very reasonable 3 to $6/mo. I use it for regular text message notifications of a data logger back to my cell phone. Not the data, just the health of the data collection system.


.good luck
