camera data usage

I recently installed a Xfinity home system.  One of the things I use is a camera.  If I put the live view of the camera on the home control tablet, does that go against my monthly data usage?  I would like to leave it on the screen of the tablet to watch the front door but don't want to get charged for going over the data limits and get smacked with additional data charges

Great question!  The video stream displayed on the Touchscreen does not need to travel over the Internet - it's transmitted locally over WiFi, so doing this would not impact your data usage.
