Maybe some basic math?

Assume a 1 Tbit/s attack, assume 100000 devices, what's the average attack bit rate per device?

Well, that's just 10 Mbit/s.

Can an internet connected video camera do 10 Mbit/s or better? Very likely if it is HD or better. Even for tiny processors 10 Mbit/s is nothing these days.

Can an internet connection upload 10 Mbit/s or more. Yes, lots of people have that kind of bandwidth.
