The network is used by low power, long range IoT devices such as scooters, sensors for temperature, humidity and parking lots sensors. GPS asset trackers are also commonly used on the Helium network.
You will not benefit from having more than one hotspot in the same household. It needs to be at least 300 meter distance between two hotspots otherwise they will take away from each others earnings.
For every person you refer and we accept you will receive an additional 10 percent earning on that persons hotspot for one month starting from when the hotspot is deployed. You will receive the earnings together with your quarterly payment from us.
We can't predict earnings on each hotspot since it depends on different factors such as the amount of hotspots in your area, elevation and clear view as well as the HNT stock exchange. Some hosts earn almost 10.000 SEK per month others around 600 SEK per month.
As a host you are responsible for paying your taxes although Galiot will provide you with information and you if you have any questions.
The hotspot is securely connected to your wifi and internet to provide backhaul to the Hotspot for blockchain peer-to-peer and LongFi networking. No other traffic is allowed to your local network through a hotspot. Read more at: https://intercom.help/heliumnetwork/en/articles/3286710-security
The wireless signals from a Hotspot is completely harmless. They radiate 1000 times less than a GSM/4G base station and about 10 times less than your wifi at home.
If a hotspot is relayed, it means its internet connection is being relayed through another Hotspot on the Network, which can negatively affect mining and earning. The relay status is being exacerbated as the Network grows, which means the relay from Hotspot to Hotspot grows exponentially and its effects are more pronounced now than when the Network was smaller. You can take action on this matter by following the link below or contact us and we will guide you through the steps.

Each hotspot is asserted to the specific address you applied with. If you are about to move to another address please contact us in advance @ email@example.com and we will take action from there.
