How much data does the hub or connected devices use or send ? I am looking to set up ST hub on a smartphone with cellular wifi tethering (unused line on family plan )
There are a couple posts that answer your question:
I’m new to the SmartThings community and v2 hub. I just built a house in the boonies and was required to get a data plan from Verizon for installed home internet. In other words, I’m limited on data now.
We just moved in the house on Sunday. I have the hub hooked up and only running one thing. A Schlage front door lock. I also have 2 Ecobee thermostats connected.
I am getting a crazy high data drain/usage from the hub. About 150mb per 30 minutes. When I disconnect the hub from my router, the drain stops.
This seems very high and I don’t think it’s right.
Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing the high data usage and how to stop it? I am planning to run the entire house off the hub and Amazon Echo, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to if I can’t get the data usage u…
What kind of data usage would a SmartThings Hub consume for a basic set up of 8 -10 things. LIke contact sensors, moisture sensors, thermostat and door lock?
What will be the best way of assessing this?
Adding a chart that shows my data usage over the past 30 days.
I did some programming using CoRE last month, here is my Wi-Fi data usage. This DOES NOT include any data from my wife’s phone or any IDE usage. This is only Wi-Fi usage on my mobile phone. This is pretty typical usage for me as I tend to tinker with my rules.
