Aura Frames are WiFi cloud connected frames, which means they require a constant WiFi connection to the internet and an electrical power connection to display the photos. The exact data and electricity consumption depends on the individual frame usage.
Photo / video uploads and occasional firmware updates may require multiple gigabytes of data per month so we strongly recommend you use WiFi rather than a mobile data plan or hotspot.
The frame's power consumption is 10 watts while it is awake, and 2 watts while it is asleep. In order to reduce energy consumption, Aura will automatically go to sleep (= low-power mode with the display being turned off) when you turn off the lights or when you have set a schedule for your frame.
