HomeKit using a lot of cellular data

HomeKit using a lot of cellular data

Anyone know why HomeKit could use a lot of cell data? I didn’t notice the problem before iOS 14, but just in the last week, I only left the house for about 6 or 7 hours in total (so I’m mostly on Wi-Fi) about a data concert cell phone, which seems to be a lot.

I don’t believe any video through HomeKit, I don’t believe. I even tried disabling all notifications and this didn’t seem to help. I have a lot of HomeKit devices and I also have HomeBridge running on a RasPi to connect a bunch of things that are not HomeKit compatible. I’m not sure if it should matter or not.

I’m just trying to see if anyone else has had a problem like this. I have a limited data plan (not so limited, I shouldn’t reach the limit), but I’m still trying to see why it uses so much data.
