Unlike other internet cameras, HomeMonitor only transmits data when motion is detected or when the camera is being watched live. With no activity or access to the camera, HomeMonitor uses just 40 MB of data per month, which is less than downloading one music album from iTunes! HomeMonitor HD Pro uses 85MB per month under the same conditions.
If one standard definition HomeMonitor camera were to be recording clips or being watched for a full 60 minutes every day for a whole month, you could expect to use approximately 5GB of your internet bandwidth allowance. Standard definition HomeMonitor cameras require 256kbps upload speed.
A high definition HomeMonitor with the same amount of usage would be expected to use 10GB of your internet bandwidth allowance. HD HomeMonitor cameras require 512kbps upload speed.
