We’ve got a Ring Pro which we’ve had a while now, but a new router with some fancy bandwidth monitoring has revealed that the doorbell is uploading a *colossal* amount of data (it’s just gone noon here and it’s sent 3gb already).
We’re not using any sort of plan to record the video, so unless we choose to Live View on our phones, that video’s just going into the ether and not being used.
Is there a way to stop or reduce this? I couldn’t find a way to downgrade the video quality… and we only really need streamed video on the rare occasions when we’re out & about and need to answer the door.
Truth be told since getting this thing we’ve realised we probably don’t even need a video doorbell, although it’s useful to get the ring notifications on our phones when we’re down in the back yard and don’t hear the chime.
Of course, in asking this I’ve just discovered Motion Zones, so that will probably solve it (rather than being activated by every car that goes past…).
Any other suggestions welcome though!
