Camera uploading

We have 75 MV22 cameras so far on the network.  I have seen a few times where one camera will have massive amounts of uploading. Here is an example in last 2 hours.

First I'm not sure how this happens. Second is there a way to prevent this? 

 

Thanks in advance

Shane

Re: Camera uploading

Motion settings on the camera? Some user accessing the camera to view footage? Is it a one-time occurance or does it repeat every day/hour? Settings identical between this camera and another one nearby? Have you tried reset/restart the camera?

Re: Camera uploading

Motion sensor is on as I thought that was the best option to use.  Users are not viewing if they are its on same subnet so shouldn't be any upload of data then.  I do see it daily sometimes its different cameras, like yesterday there was one camera that uploaded 4.3gig that day.  I do have all cameras set exact same.  

I haven't tried to reset

Re: Camera uploading

Someone is probably watching it externally.

 

Check the camera access log (Cameras/Video Access).

Re: Camera uploading

No one is doing it external.  We only have 3 or 4 users total that can view and I have confirmed they are not looking at them other than at work.

Re: Camera uploading

When they are accessing the cameras do they have the cloud icon or the tick?

 

At my home due to some poor configuration of the ISP supplied router I cannot access the 'live' stream locally unless I manually change the viewing PC's DNS to Google's servers.  Therefore every view triggers upload traffic.
