Do WiFi cameras use data?

But with an NVR, you only use data when youchoose to view video footage from your cameras. Wirelesscameras that are always recording video can easilyuse over 60GB of data transfer (uploading) per month.This is why we recommend a camera system that has theability to only upload footage when there is movement.
