Is there any way of knowing how much data per month a motion detection IP camera will use? I don't know if it's actually "on" 24/7. When I had it hooked up before, I could view the live feed anytime I wanted and also, when motion was detected, it would send several snap shots to me via email. I'm trying to figure out the cheapest route to go when choosing an internet provider. I had Comcast, but their customer service sucks so bad that I had to cancel.
