FWIW: I am an infosec professional who works at a company you hear about on the news occasionally. (I am also a Dave, which should lend about as much credibility-wise). This is a valid concern (and, also, your instincts are generally on point anyway, don’t discount yourself so much!).
IoT devices are often rushed out the door with security as a distant third-place afterthought and are generally a horror show, security-wise. I keep mine on a separate VLAN and WiFi network, which is obviously not an option for everyone, but I want to be able to keep an eye on ‘em. Always be wary of what you let on your network and what you let talk to the Internet.
