How much data is being used by the tado system?

Options
I have 8 radiators Controlled individually and recently changed my home unlimited data package to a more economical data sim.
I am currently on holiday but something is using 1 to 2 gbs a day and the only culprit I can think of is the Tado radiator valves etc ,these are all set to frost protection.
I Have smarty sim in a home mifi , the smarty app is telling me I'm using data everyday, am I missing something?

    The tado° devices communicate via radio at 868 MHz using the IPv6 enabled “6LoWPAN” protocol. The advantage of using this protocol for the tado° wireless network, instead of Wi-Fi (2.4 and 5 GHz), is the extremely low power consumption combined with superior range inside buildings and through walls.

    The only item requiring your data allowance is the bridge connected by ethernet to your router.

    @country Our broadband router reports that Tado is using about 1.5 mbps data a day. If you’re using 1000X that amount, suggest that you look at your broadband router logs for the wired or wireless port with excessive data usage.

    Thank you for all your comments and suggestions,
    I'm not sure how to look at my broadband router logs yet but it's work in progress 😀

    @country I'd be far more suspicious of a video stream, such as Ring-type camera doorbell or security camera. Our doorbell is uploading 80MB a day. One camera is uploading 25MB a day and downloading 40MB.

    This is a screenshot from a BT (EE branded) router. You'll need to look in the 'My devices' screen.
