Background bandwidth useage
« on: April 13, 2015, 07:21:17 PM »
I'm new to this forum and to iCam so I hope this isn't too dumb a question:  We live in a remote area and our only option for higher speed internet is via satellite.  It works great with decent speed but each account is limited to 'x' number of Gigs per month.  My question is:  When I start iCam on my PC is it sending any data over the internet when I don't have the app active on my iPhone?

The vast majority of data is only transmitted when you log into iCam on your phone. 

There is a small amount of data that is sent from the computer running iCamSource to the server to let the server know the computer is still there.

If iCamSource is left running 24/7 for a whole month, the amount of data sent from the iCamSource to the server would total about 100 MB.
