Is this the stupidest connected home product ever?

Yes, the long wait is over. Now you can switch your kettle on without having to walk over to it, with this super new wifi-enabled kettle and smartphone app. This could save you perhaps a minute, because you won’t have to actually go to the kettle and then wait there while it boils. Now it will have boiled and switched itself off by the time you get there. Providing that you remember to go there after you put it on. Otherwise you’ll just have to do it again.

Could you perhaps use an IFTTT recipe to put the kettle on when you approach your house/flat? Because then you wouldn’t have to wait those thirty seconds or so to make a cup of tea…

Who is this aimed at? I can’t think of anyone, except perhaps the ‘much-more-money-than-sense’ segment.
