Setting network home with open VPN

Hello Everyone ,
I’m considering implementing pfsense in my home network , currently I have RT-AC87U with the basic setup.
I have built pfsense on a box with Atom, CPU E3815 1.46GHz , 4G of RAM and 8G of CF card
In my current network I have a couple of computers, phones and printer which are connected via wireless, and IPTV and PS4 (Let us call it IoT) via cable, and all run together on the same network
1- Isolate IoT devices and the private Lan on two different network
2- Implement OpenVPN with Redirect IPv4 Gateway option, so when I travel or in unsecure network I can connect to my home FW and redirect my traffic to my home ISP, I don’t want to reach any of my home network , I just need redirect my traffic only.
1- Buy managed switch and create 3 VLANs one for the private network (wireless) , and one for IoT device and one as managment VLAN. And each one will have separate subnet.
2- Convert Asus router as AP
3- Deploy open VPN with PKI and allow redirect traffic only, No access to my internal network.
4- Implement AV , snort and web-filter on Pfsense as I use AV and web-filter now on my Asus router.
I’m not sure if that the optimal design for my network, and probably the redirect traffic on the VPN side will be tricky , so any suggestion or ideas will be highly appreciated.
