Satellite bandwith usage

My satellite has a usage cap. I plan to monitor my pets intermittently live by Android while away from home. Does the camera use bandwidth constantly or ony when viewing live from phone?

Welcome to the community, @klimshelf. The cameras will use the internet in these circumstances:

  • When authenticating a connection through the app
  • When uploading event videos to the cloud
  • Live Streaming and Playback through the app when you are on your cell network, and not on your WiFi

Setting the resolution to 360p, will use less bandwidth when connecting to your Live Stream.
