I received an email today from Comcast, saying I am about to go over my 1.2 Terabyte limit that I pay for Internet access. I went and checked my data usage for the last 6 months, and on average I used 181 GB of WiFi a month. They said that in January, I have used 900.2 GB of data.
I called Comcast, and they asked me if I had added any items in my house that use WiFi. The answer is yes – I have added 5 Wyse V3 Cams. The Comcast agent said, yes, the video cameras can use a lot of data.
I have google Wi-Fi and I can look up devices usages individually. I have not seen any one of my 9 cameras use that much data. All 9 record constantly and I do have 1 outdoor cam that I turn on once in awhile. Not sure if you can check your cameras individually or not but I would try that route first. (All my cameras are on HD and have 32gb cards in)
I can also check individual devices on my eero Pro mesh system. I checked my V3 cameras that stream 24/7 and I average about 25MB download per day but about 500MB-600MB upload per day. My V2 cameras average less, about 15mb download and about 210mb upload per day.
It would help if you told us which app version, which camera FW version.
That happened about 2 years ago to me, where data usage jumped GREATLY. They redid the app slightly and it dropped back to “normal”.
