There's a lot of cheap wifi lightbulbs and wifi outlets that people buy from Amazon, and then install some app that works with the lightbulb. So it's easier than ever to be on someone's lan, jumping from a cheap microcontroller to other hardware.

That's why all my IoT devices are on the guest network which only gives them internet access and blocks them from seeing any other device on the LAN. If one gets compromised, they can't reach anything else on my network.

Without being in the same lan, how do you cast to Google home devices? Or do you just not use that?

not the person you asked, but someone in the same position - the answer is it depends on your use case.

I only have the audio devices so all I ever cast is spotify, the trick is to ask google to play something on spotify first and then open the app on your phone/tablet/whatever, which then connects to that session and acts like a cast/remote.
