House Icon

About a week or so ago, a house icon started popping up right next to my wireless icon. It only shows up when I'm at my house, and it comes and goes. Does anyone know what this is? No one else in my family has this icon on their phone.

The only thing I can think of is the Network Extender icon. You can find a glossary of those icons in your phone's settings to verify if that's what it is:

Settings > About > Help > Icon glossary

Do you have a Network Extender at your home? If not, your device may be picking up a neighbor's, or if the rest of your family has different phones, the icon may display differently for them (for instance, it looks a lot more like the standard cell signal icon on an S7, but with a small mark above it).
