Abstract

This paper designs HomeNet Profiler, a software that runs on any computer connected inside a home network, to collect a wide range of measurements about home networks including the set of devices, the set of services (with UPnP and Zeroconf), and the characteristics of theWiFi environment. To attract a larger number of users, HomeNet Profiler runs one-shot measurements upon user demand. We evaluate this design choice against periodic measurements taken from six home networks. Data collected from these six homes and with Home- Net Profiler in more than 1,600 homes in France shed light on the diversity of devices that connect to home networks and of the WiFi neighborhood across home networks.
