I got a notification from Comcast that I was using near my cap of 1.2 TB of data, which certainly was a surprise. 

 

It looks like even though both of my Arlo Baby cameras are on the same Wifi network as my iPad that we leave running overnight, I am still using tons of data. It seems like with the Arlo and the iPad on the same network, I should be using internal streaming. 

 

How can I force it to be using the internal streaming and not use all my Comcast data? Thanks!

Both the iPad and Arlo Baby are connected to the same 5ghz non-guest network. Rebooted everything, latest app and firmware, etc. 

 

I do not see the home icon prior to starting the stream or any indication I am in local streaming mode. My 2 gigs/hour burn rate also confirms.

HI @MavinW

 

May I ask if you can provide a screenshot of the missing icon when live streaming?

 

Also, which version of iOS is installed on your device & what version of the Arlo Mobile App are you using?
