Hi, I'm wondering if there is data usage while the cameras are unarmed? I understand while remote viewing it is deffinetly using data. Interested in the usage rates from Arlo Router to cloud/Internet as well.

Hope some knowledgable person can help. Using a Nighthawk M2 as my internet connection.

Cheers

When the camera is unarmed, there should be no data usage...

the cam just pings the base itself to let the base know it's alive.

I have noticed that that even when the system is disarmed. That the centre LED on the router flashes occasionally which has internet symbol . So it is not uploading constantly?

The base has to maintain contact with the servers so occasional blips are expected. Data used would be very small unless streaming/recording.
