Would you recommend ESPhome for garage opener?

Long story short, I was using insteon as my garage door opener, however insteon as those familiar might now has lots of stability issues. I have two questions regarding ESPhome:

How secure is it? I know if I am specifically targeted by good enough of a hacker, none of my smart home devices is 100% hack proof, however should I be concerned with ESPhome and wide net attacks?

Is it possible to program ESPhome to primary access a specific AP and upon failure define a back AP?

ESPhome will be perfect. You can enable encrypted comms between the ESP and HA and as long as your wifi is secure you should be good.

If you are concerned with WiFi attacks, then put a ethernet port on the ESP device and cable it instead.

Very true. I use a Olimex PoE ESP32 for one of my projects.

Yep, I do this for some of my devices that I also occasionally take in my RV.
