My network firewall is reporting that SmartThings keeps uploading data every 4-5 hours to 184.108.40.206 (an Amazon AWS address)
It’s not a lot of data, around 1-3 MB, but I wanted to check if others are seeing this and if this is normal behavior?
My firewall is flagging this as abnormal upload behavior so I just want to know if I should exclude this from the firewall checks. It’s a bit suspicious because there are separate connections to *.smartthings.com using DNS but for some reason this is a direct IP connection to a specific IP address that doesn’t seem to go through DNS.
Looking further at the firewall logs, SmartThings seems to be connecting to this address every 5 minutes.
