As you have a Bluetooth chip already in the iHost I have just had an idea for what to use it for
My Logitech Harmony hub can connect to NVIDIA Shield TV and Amazon Firesticks using Bluetooth, and my PC although that isn’t that useful. Why not copy what they are doing? I think mostly they pretend to be a Bluetooth keyboard rather than anything specific. Then you could run automations involving turning the TV on etc.
another possibility is just to use Bluetooth to sniff local presence of phones like Home Assistant can already do. That way you could run a scene if someone comes home or goes out etc.
One of the annoyances with the multitude of devices that can send out IR is they can’t control Bluetooth stuff/whereas you could.
As regards the wifi capability I would just allow it to replace the Ethernet cable as how many people have Ethernet where they would put a security device? I doubt I would ever use that tab because my Ethernet is nowhere near my front door.
