​@J S It's usually done with the laser's reflection from a window's glass, but technically, yes, any reflective surface which can vibrate sufficiently should work. Also, newer laser microphone prototypes have been developed and demonstrated which can also pick up sound via plants, vapor or smoke, or a bag of potato chips (or, if located in the UK, a bag of potato crisps). The original form is probably from around 1947, but this devices just used a beam of infrared light (lasers weren't invented yet). Microwave radiation can be used to pick up sound from or through walls (doppler radar).

Personally i would never have any AI system in my home. All the assistant AI are completely insecure, not just for smart thieves but also for governments. smart homes are not smart.
