High data usage from a wi-fi cam?

I am using a D-Link wi-fi cam and it *appears* to be using 10GB a day. This cam IS NOT set to constantly send recordings to the cloud. It is not being monitored all the time. It is not even recording to its SD card. I checked all the settings and nothing appears to be set to stream or otherwise use the internet (expect when I check in on my app, which is rarely). I monitor the devices connected to my wi-fi and see no unknown devices (that may be tapping into the stream). I have tested this phenomenon twice by turning it off/on with more than a week between switches. Each time, when the camera is on the daily data usage jumps around 10GB per day. I do not rent a modem or wifi from Cox. Does anyone have any idea if the camera is the cause?
