I have a 57GB photo library that I would like to keep in iCloud Photo library, the only problem is that my ISP absolutely murders my download speed whenever I'm uploading anything.

Is there a way that I can schedule Photos to upload my library only during off-peak hours (rather than waking up at 2am, un-pausing the upload and then pausing it again at 7am manually).

I was thinking maybe a third party application like Little Snitch might work (I've never tried it) or something along those lines, maybe even some kind of Apple Script.

I'm a bit over my head with this so I need some help 🙃
