Totally new to IoT, here. I got the new Particle Electron cellular IoT device. I used up 5 Mb in like three hours. I have no idea what took up all that data. That is the monthly limit so no I have to wait another month to use it or spend more money to develop on it.
I don't want to go through a months worth of data every day so I was wondering if there was a way hookup the Electron to Wi-Fi while I am developing it. Any good and easy to configure dongles? I have searched and can't find any way to do this easily.
Also, does that level of data usage seem abnormal? If so any ideas what happened? I accidentally tried to flash the tinker software on to OTA, but that was well before the 5 Mb data limit was reached. That only took like one Mb. So I guess hosting a variable on the cloud for like 2 hours took up 5 Mb.
Any help would be appreciated.
