tbh, if you are new to HA I would recommend investing in zigbee / zwave / wifi setup, these protocols are built with security features. A layer of defense against sniffing, rf 433 traffic is easily decoded.. (google, rf 433 sniffers)

Not sure about the rest, I would place functionality and security equally important in a HA setup, the last thing I would want to learn is someone in the cloud controlling my IoT devices (google, Mirai bots) Imagine some joker switching on and off your lights when you are having your bath

You might want to learn how to create a vlan for your IoT devices. If one of your IoT devices got compromised, at least it doesn't affect your home network.
