Tracking data usage by device

How can I track data use by device via my router. I recently installed some cameras, a doorbell, and some other IoT devices, and starting to get close to my data cap. I want to see both down and up traffic summaries on a daily/weekly/monthly basis by device.

Re: Tracking data usage by device

My month of February lists 9GB data usage, and it was only 7:AM. No one is up, except for me and only the TV is on! 9GB for watching TV channels, and 'm not on Netflix or Hulu.

Re: Tracking data usage by device

Some home security systems upload to their servers,  If you have cameras, this could account for the data.  If your dorbell is a Ring doorbell, it also uplads to their servers.  Not sure of what 'IoT" devices you have.  You could try disconnecting them all, then plugging them in one at a time, leaving an hour between devices, and track usage that way.
