If you had actually read my post, and the string that came before it, when you turn off Motion Recording, all you do is turn off alerts, NOT motion recording. Since I work from home, I’m pretty sure that I’m always setting off the recording feature. I’m trying to see if taking the cameras offline actually reduce data consumption. If I find that’s the case, then Ring needs to fix that. In your post, you even said that your motorized tree turner caused your camera to consume 100GB/day. Do you understand that if that was truly the case, then you would have blown through 1TB of data in around 10 days? And if all the camera consumed was 14GB/day, that’s still 400GB/month. Which is a huge difference from what I’ve used in the past 6 months. I don’t need snark, I need a real solution from Ring, or someone else. This is not “of my own making”, unless you count walking around my house, and oh, breathing. If you have a solution, great. Otherwise, keep your comments to yourself.

I have enjoyed using my Ring indoor cameras since the start of December 2019. However, I've unplugged all of them, due to using excessive bandwidth. In December, my data usage went from 550GB in November to 1.2TB. So far in January, I've always used 513GB of data. The only things I added to my network were the Ring Indoor cameras. Since I have a 1TB cap with Comcast, I'm given 2 free months to exceed my 1TB allowance before they charge me a ton of money for overages. Considering I've already consumed so much data, I have no choice but to unplug my cameras to see if that reduces data usage. I've already called Ring support on this, and they had no answers. I also have 2 Nest Protect outdoor cameras, and they allow the ability to change video resolution (and thus data usage). Ring needs to add this feature to its cameras, or I'd expect many more people will have issues like mine, and people will walk away from Ring cameras.
