The only way to 100% stop data usage is to power down the HomeFusion router.  As long as the router is powered on then anything can connect to it and start consuming data on VZWs network which will be held against you.

Finding out specifically what is consuming the data is a burden that the user must bear at this time.  That means you must setup and maintain data monitors for the various devices that could be connected to the HF router.  A good place to start looking would be something called Glasswire.  Each OS is going to have its own data monitoring solutions and the tech savvy user will explore setting up a separate router with built in monitoring features.
