I’d appreciate any advice on how I could set up an email alert. I’d like to be alerted whenever a device on my network exceeds a daily download limit.
I’m using a Balance 20X. I found the WAN Bandwidth Allowance Monitor setting, but that doesn’t help much.
I’m occasionally running into trouble with a device going mad and downloading up to 80 GB per day. This has happened with an Apple TV and an Amazon Echo. It’s pretty easy to spot in the Balance’s Usage Reports, but I don’t (and don’t want to) routinely check those. I only know there’s a problem when my ISP tells me that 75% of our monthly bandwidth has been used.
The Balance itself doesn’t currently appear to offer this kind of alert. It would be great if it could be added to a future firmware. The data is already collected for Usage Reports, so it would just need a daily job to run and the UI to set a daily limit.
Can anyone recommend a solution that could work with or alongside the Balance router to provide reporting/alerting on individual device data usage?
