If I am are not doing a remote viewing online, is the Logitech 750e camera still transmits video data to Logictech host website there by eating my data usage? The reason I am asking is that when I check my Comcast account, I see an increase in data usage after I install the Alert camera. From Aug 1 mid-night to noon, I see 3 Gigbytes usage on my account. I just want to make sure that my Logitech Alert 750e is not eating bandwidth while connecting it to my router.

It only transmits video if you request a video stream from web commander or some of the mobile clients. There is a minimal amount of traffic associated with maintaining a connection to Logitech's back-end serivces, but it'd be no different than leaving an IM client open and inactive.
Are you sure the 3 GB is due to Alert, or just trying to figure out what caused it?

Thank for your response. May be Comcast counts the data usage with Eastern Standard time. Since I am in west coast, it could be that the data usage between 21:00-24:00 (yesterday) shows up in today's usage. Your answer assures me that I do not need to be alarmed for the data usage issue. Thanks .
