Sooner or later it will be argued in court that our voluntarily inviting this level of surveillance into our homes means we no longer have the expectation of privacy there.

bunch of bull here, who comes up with these articles.

alexa has all history of commands easily removed.

cameras such as ring all have 2fa and the only way a hacker would get in is if you are an idiot in the first place and didn't secure it.( kinda like if you leave door unlocked and someone gets in ) ,most smart locks will also not let you unlock with voice only.

instead of fearmongering, just educate people on good security practice.
