I’ve read on a few different places here about the low data usage mode. However, I can’t seem to find it on the InControl2 group settings anywhere. I currently have a large number (100+) of CradlePoint units using their NetCloud service (used to be ECM). The devices on this network I have setup to use very limited amounts of data per month. The units would use around 10Mb max, most of the time they were around 5Mb a month. I’m only interested in having InControl2 monitor the online/offline status of the units and managing firmware updates and settings from time to time.
If I’m going to switch to PepWave hardware and the InControl2 service I need to get my data usage dialed into a very low number like it is now. I can’t buy the hardware saving $200, then pay $10 more every month for a higher data plan.
What are the suggested settings I use. I really only need to online/offline status to update on the InControl2 units. I can directly connect to a unit and see the cell signal strength and client data usage (the only 2 other things I really check from time to time) if and when I need to.
Currently the only setting I can find in the group settings to limit data is to “Disable GPS Location Tracking” which I have done.
