My 7GB monthly usage in 8/2019 has gone up to about 30GB in 2/2020 (see image below).
Other than software and firmware updates that may have made the Ring Pro more sensitive and caused more recordings, I can't think why the bandwidth usage may have increased 4-fold.

 


That's a big increase! What App or program are you using for measuring bandwidth?

I have an Asus router model that has Traffic/Bandwidth monitoring features, that displays that chart for any selected device that connects to the router.

If anything, I defined a zone that reduced the area monitored for motion detection by the Ring Pro instead of the default everything. I'm going to remove that zone and use the default everything again.

If more people could contribute their bandwidth usage numbers, we'd get a better idea if the updates are making the devices upload more data.

Re: Sharing my Ring Pro Bandwidth Usage numbers

Bandwidth usage changes as I change motion settings:

(image attached)

2/21 - 3/1: Custom (smaller) motion zone, motion sensitivity level 3.
3/2 - 3/10: Remove entire motion zone, so no motion alerts.
3/11 - 3/15: Set up motion zone for entire screen area, sensitivity level 3.
3/16 - 3/22: Reduce the sensitivity level by 1 (from the 3rd to the 2nd place on the slider)
