First Zigbee Device installed, a Smart Plug (Smartthings) and Alexa can now turn on/off the Kettle!
I made the case that upon rising in the morning, you can arrive in the kitchen to hot water. No waiting.
However, the other half wasn't impressed stating that you still need to fill up the kettle with water and remember to do so at night with the Kettle Switch "ON" and the plug setup appropriately.
So, this question isn't so much about the kettle and the smart plug, rather for those of us who may not have the same support for Home Automation (at least initially), and how did you get buy-in and win them over?
Clearly not a technical problem, but a very real threat to the very existence of automation in my home!
