So in addition to putting your IoT stuff on its own network segment, I'd highly suggest you throw a PiHole into the mix. You can really tame and micromanage a 'smart TV' or other device with this.

>I'm sorry, you must have mistaken me for someone who wants to f### with IP numbers, hhh.

Gawd, I'm being sucked into the swirling vortex of ip numbers more & more.  I had to do *gasp* DHCP Reservations the other day because of the smarthome stuff.

A lot of people like to run a VPN with their PiHole, and then have the VPN use the PiHole for DNS queries as well. Probably a fun addition, but not necessary for the PiHole on your network.
