I started to have a look at all devices on my network after my ISP was informing me of abnormally high data usage.
While I found the main culprit to an AV package that was constantly trying to download definitions and failing, I found that my SmartThings hub is generating a lot of data and I was wondering if this is normal or not.
And if it it normal and I were to block it, what would happen to my functionality.
Below you can find what I’m seeing on my firewall as far as traffic is concerned:
I’m using around 19GB a week in these 2-minute interval data-dumps
I have the following connected:
- 2 smart lightbulbs
- 2 wifi plugs
- 6 smart wall-light switches
- linked to Amazon echo
