Let see, it would be very nice to know how many live in you house, when you all leave, any kind of schedule you keep, be able to turn off your camera so the criminal can go inside and snoop and see if more information can be robbed from you or just plain rob you, kidnap your kid etc. while you think you are totally secured and blind that you gave someone the key to your house with minimal chance of being detected or caught. Porch camera would do just fine for that.Clickbait article:
Tin-foil hat much? You already share your voice when using an Alexa or Echo, and they can listen to the audio. If you already trust them enough to use a smart speaker, this adds nothing more to the 'personal privacy and security' and it's 'balance'.

Are ring cameras being wireless somehow a concern, is my neighbor going to hack my cameras?? lol..

Are you saying networks are never compromised? If so, I like to see what blinders you are wearing. There is also a certain level of trust folks give to these companies but then you have no clue the integrity of the workers, what information can be compromised or obtain by then and sold to the highest bidder. Hey, pssst, I have 10,000 Echo or some other system passwords/account info. . . how much will you give me? Just a very cursory search will give you the real answer.
