I have around a dozen WiFi wall sockets at my house from a handful of different vendors. Recently, I upgraded my router and it has a traffic reporting feature. From this, I’ve learned that some of these devices are sending back 300megabytes or more each month. Compared to my Belkin WeMo devices, this is an order of magnitude more data. Per device. This cheap brand is “Anbes.” I have no idea what data they are sending back, or who has access to it. I’m concerned and alarmed.
