Both?

This is one of the reasons I decided to upgrade my home WI-FI to something more commercial grade where I can create multiple SSIDs and put the insecure stuff on a separate SSID and it will not have any ability to impact the rest of my network.

Also I can set up alerts to see who connects to that network... as well as limit the connections to a white list. (So you can see the network, learn the password, but can't easily connect to the network. )
