Several times a day I use Wifi tethering for a short time. The bandwidth usage over LTE is expensive and I don't want Syncdocs to use this connection. Other solutions like Crashplan let me exclude certain Wifi networks from syncing. Pausing Syncdocs manually each time is inconvenient.

Thanks for your suggestion. Is your LTE connection via a Wifi tether (to a phone) or directly via an LTE 4G USB dongle?
The phone provides a Wifi network to the computer. So from the computer's point of view it's a regular Wifi network.
Crashplan lets you exclude Wifi and LAN connections individually. Also it has a quick function to set it to sleep for a given time. Very useful so at least I don't have to remember to turn it back on.
PS. Such a sleep function with timed end of the sleep is very useful e.g. when having video conferences as they need the whole available bandwidth for good video quality, or when temporarily being on a slow network.
also, I have more quota on my work network than home one. It will be nice Syncdocs has a feature to automatically detect which one, and set limits accordingly
