We currently estimate early 2022. You can enter your email above to receive updates on availability.
You will pay for devices by submitting a pre-order (click Buy Now above). You will receive a notification in advance of shipment. An annual Swarm data plan ($60/yr) is required to transmit and will be billed to the same payment method upon activation of your device(s).
A device’s Activation Date is the first of the month following when ≥50 messages are sent. For example, if you send the first ≥50 messages on Feb 17th, the Activation Date will be March 1st and your data plan will annually renew each March 1st. Please see Terms & Conditions for further details.
The discounts shown online are available through Mar. 31, 2022.
Swarm is no longer selling Swarm Tile modems. We have instead decided to focus on the development and production of the Swarm M138 Modem.
No problem! Enter your email above and we’ll notify you when the Swarm M138 Modem becomes available.
