A good balance
I am one of the 50/50 voters. I find that keeping a good balance is safer for the family, but also allows me to feel I have control of my home. With the new discoveries of Voice activation abuse, my home doesn't allow it until full privacy is able to be achieved and protected. I do have voice controls for my TV, but I am assuming it only records when I push the button. I also use my own internet/networking equipment. I do not allow my ISP to put thier devices in my home. I want full control over access and patching. I also invest in top of the line routers that offer firewall, AV, and other security features that I can monitor and control. Too often I find my neighbors are unware their ISP modem has allowed open access to their WiFi due to a firmware patch reset the settings or their kid reset the modem. I will not use enterprise level or old enterprise network devices, due to the complexitiy that can come from trying to get it updated, get back online when it goes offline, and the size. I need to make sure my wife can quickly get access to the device and proplery reboot it whenever a issue arises. She does work from home at times and if the internet goes down, I cannot always be there to get it back up. Stirking a 50/50 balance allows for better control, privacy, and overall secure state of mind without losing the cool appeal.
