I am a little unclear on something. If I have the REO link app open, but not actively using it (e.g. phone has black screen and not being used) am I still using data for the feed? Or is the data only being used when I actually am looking at the video feed? I understand there will be a small amount for the push notification, but just want to make sure it's not streaming video continuously when I am not looking at the video.
Just tried a wireshark trace and can only really see data when the liveview is open and trying to connect to the camera and subsequently when the stream is running.. if you drop the app to the background the stream appears to stop.. there's a few other packets here and there but not a stream.. hopefully someone more technical will confirm this..
When your phone has black screen, or Reolink App has been put in background, it will cease to stream.
