    Not for me. Quooker boiling tap. The single most important, value for money and useful gadget I have ever purchased.

    If you don’t have one you should be thinking of investing now.

    Two floors tooled up for light and power! Lighting circuits: 5 x 1 gang, 5 x 2 gang, 3 x 3 gang, 6 relay circuits, mainly LEDHut 5W LEDs (91!) but also outdoor SON lamps, LED kitchen lights, LED candle bulbs, halogen bulbs and a dimmable CFL, 5 mood controllers, two remote switches, 2 PIRs. Power: one remote socket, 9 plug in modules. Patiently waited for the heating modules for years, and am a little underwhelmed....flirting with evohome....and please don't tell me "there is a better way" and try to sel

    Quooker does look great, just a bit too pricey for me. I’m looking at getting my first house this year. Still want to have some gadgets. Maybe once I’m settled in I could look at saving for one of these.

    I just fill up my kettle and plug it into my lightwaverf socket. Switch the kettle on and switch the socket off and then turn it on as per a timer or by my tablet in the morning prior to coming down. Maybe not as intelligent as the ikettle but given you always need to make sure it’s got water, not far off.

    And for £99 I could get a Siemens Porsche designed kettle!

    Lightwave switches, sockets, PIRs, contact sensors, LED strips & relays. Running on RaspberryPi with Domoticz to incorporate RF temperature sensors & IP cams. Still running WiFi link alongside!

    Went to replace our 12 year old Siemens Porsche kettle which has just given up the ghost but couldn’t find them anywhere, I don’t think they make them anymore…

    Lighting: LWRF LED strips, In-line dimmers, In-line relays and Plug-in modules,
    Inputs: Master mood switch, Magnetic door sensors, Handheld remote,
    Controller: Domoticz running on Raspberry Pi with RFXCom. Plus recently a stack of Z-Wave units!

    Probably be in B&Q soon in some dusty boxes like the rest of the Siemens stuff! 🙂
