How Much Data Can One Smart Home Generate? About 1 GB a Week.

In my connected home I’ve focused mostly on automation, but Stephen Sorkin, the chief strategy officer at Splunk has decided to go a much nerdier route. He focused on data, specifically gathering data from his circuit breaker, his connected weather station and his pool. He sends that data to Splunk and has used it to make some starting conclusions — among them that his home generates about 200 MB of data a day.
