I had a similar issue, and no 100% resolution found. But what I can ask is, are you backing out of the video page for the camera or just minimizing on that screen? Apparently wyze cams can run in the background when minimized as opposed to backing out of that screen.
Interesting. This prompted me to check - 6MB mobile and 3GB Wi-Fi, so far this month. That is with a handful of cams, some plugs, and a bridge with sensor. Seems reasonable, since I check the cams a few times per day. Not sure if that is a helpful benchmark, but 20GB would be some serious streaming.
Just for your reference, I do the same for cams… notification, double tap, watch, force close app. I get a ton of notifications and my 30-day data usage for the Android Wyze app averaged over the past 4 months is:
0.03 GB/mo mobile data (0.02 GB foreground, < 0.01 GB background)
20.13 GB/mo WiFi data (20.06 GB foreground, 0.08 GB background)
I just had this problem. The app used over 2 gigabytes of data in one day. All I can figure out is that I accidentally minimized the camera video stream instead of backing out of it. Does anyone know if this is still the case, that minimizing will continue to use data? Cost me over $20 in mobile data usage. Hopefully they can fix this soon. I’m sure others have had the same issue.
