High Data Usage

My unifi system told me this morning that WLED is one of my most active clients. According to some logs, my WLED device has downloaded 70MB but uploaded 1.23 GB of data over the last 3 days.

For comparison, a Kasa lightbulb downloaded about 6MB and uploaded 20MB over a similar time period. My fans which are also connected to home assistant are under 1 MB.

Is it normal for WLED to upload that much data?

WLED Version 14.3 (latest)
ESP32 running a string of 415 LEDs

I don’t have longer-term data to compare to since I recently switched over to Unifi.
