Doubtful, if your going to use these, at least segregate these items onto a ¨guest¨ network (they can still collect data and send out, but it will be harder to leverage said device to gain access to internal network). However even if you could do something to keep these devices under your control, unless it was plug and play most people are NOT going to go through the effort. However, we should not support these companies in the mean time. Its not just Google homes or Samsung tvs either, its IoT Dildoes, its children's toys, its IP cameras, fridges...... fuck look at Shodan. If its connected to the internet, its a liability for privacy. If you want a smart TV i recommend a Rasberry Pi w/ Kodi, but beyond that do we really need everything connected to the internet?
