How much data camera upload ?
« on: February 16, 2020, 10:44:10 AM »

DCS-936L every 5 minutes " is streaming video"

I think that DCS-8010LH streaming too but I can't check because that model doesn't have a web access..

I found this statement

"About your query Chad, the camera sends information to our servers every 5 minutes. It does so because it needs to re-establish the connection as our system is designed to refresh the connection. Furthermore, the is your Internet IP address, which the camera is using to connect to the our servers. "

But how much information camera send - or what amount of data ? (1MB, 2MB, 3MB ?)

(It is quite interesting because every 5 minutes for 3 cameras means - 864 "requests" per day - so if it would be a 0,5MB per request = 430 MB per day)

What FW version is currently loaded on the 936L?

Probably not much data. Less than 1Mb. Just probably sending a ping and the servers ACK the ping. is not your internet address. Thats a loopback address.

How are you determining what the camera is doing? Using a network scanner?

What is the mfr and model # of the ISP modem and main host router your using with the camera?

FW is 1.07.04

There is similar thread

I only check logs in web GUI of camera.

I just interest what size of data camera send. But maybe a few KB or bytes...
