Foscam 9821w constant wifi usage - Vera stream?
« on: March 12, 2019, 09:26:59 am »
Hi, I noticed my foscam camera is using a lot of bandwidth on my WiFi network. About 45 GB per week. I have the camera setup on the WiFi network and my Vera edge connected through a switch to my Asus router which does not have radio enabled but rather uses 2 unifi APs.

I could not see the traffic using Wireshark on my desktop, nor in the Asus router traffic monitor. My assumption though is that this traffic is the mjpeg steam to Vera. I will temporarily change the password in Vera so it does not match to verify.

However, anyway I was wondering if one can configure Vera to only establish connection and stream video when I'm actually viewing the camera through Vera?
