Why data is consumed fast?
If you find that your camera has consumed much data during normal use, here are some possible causes for your reference:
Cause 1. When the camera is working, it will send continuous heartbeat packets to the server to keep the connection, which will consume about several MB/ day
Cause 2. Watching live streaming, playing recordings, uploading videos to cloud, sending push/email notifications will also consume data. especially connect the camera and playback videos in Clear mode. You may reduce the use of these functions to save data consumption
Cause 3. A poor network connection will consume more data than a normal connection since it will send more connection packages to the server
