Sentry mode uploading gigabytes of data to HQ?

We've been having some break-ins in our community so I've left sentry mode on over night the last two nights while parked outside the garage, and I've noticed the car will upload 500-800 MB per hour every hour as long as sentry mode is on. Its uploaded 13 GB over the last two nights without a single sentry mode event occurring. Once I turn off sentry mode the car goes to sleep and stops uploading. Usually, when I come back from my daily drive it uploads around 100-200 MB, lately, before sleeping. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm on FSD Beta 10.4 software version 2021.36.8.5 and have the live sentry mode viewing option though I did not check it or keep it streaming on my phone.
