Sensor data and camera usage

My setup:

  1. Camera local record only no notifications on.
  2. Live feed only on local network
  3. Sensor notifications turned on using the 2 door sensors and the motion sensor.

Should this setup use much if any internet usage?

I am setting this up for someone with a very small data cap and would prefer it use almost no internet data.

The streaming data stays within the local network when viewed only locally. So, in theory, the internet usage should be very low. It depends, of course, on how you define very low. Also, I say “in theory” because there’s been some debate about this lately, starting here: Can you use cams without internet?
