There are many things today that have the term "smart" attached to them. These are most often electronics devices or machines that have embedded computer hardware and software. Some of these items have been grouped into an idea called "Internet of Things" (IoT). Such items include cars and vehicles with built in (self-driving cars), smart home items like wi-fi controlled thermostats, climate control, smart refrigerators, etc.
Without getting into politics, these items have been heavily marketed to the world as "good" and thus, many people want these these things so they are ubiquitous in big-box stores like Lowes and Home Depot. In fact 2018 was the last time I saw a window air conditioner available without built-in wifi.
But, there are others who see a serious danger to letting computers control your home, not the least of which is hackers holding you hostage for a ransom. What happens when ransomware infects your smart fridge?
I felt giving all that background was necessary to help you best clearly understand what I'm about to ask with no confusion. So, here we go:
1.a) What is the searchable buzzword term for household appliances that either are not equipped with wifi connection out-of-the-box, or that have been DIY customized / downgraded by their owners?
I know there is a term "luddite", but that isn't specific enough for this type. There is a relation between the right to repair concept as well.
Here is part two of the question:
1.b) What is the term for someone who disables the physically, manually, disables or removes the Wi-Fi circuitry in their smart appliances?
And finally, a third variation of the same question:
1.c) What is the term for the DIY project of disabling Wi-Fi in your smart devices?
I think "dumb appliances" is the best term going, but are there any synonyms or better alternatives?
