How do I set home mode?

Our home mode feature means no more standing around waiting for the kettle to boil after a long day. 

Instead, by activating home mode, your 3rd generation iKettle will be boiled and ready by the time you get through your front door!

To start using home mode please follow the simple steps below:

  1. Open up your Smarter app
  2. Select your network 
  3. Select your iKettle 3.0
  4. Select features (top right of the screen)
  5. Select “home mode”
  6. Once you have opened up home mode please select 'enable home mode'. 

Following on from that please set the days and times that you would like home mode to be active between. For example, if you normally get home from work somewhere in between 6pm and 8pm Monday to Friday and would like to arrive to a freshly boiled kettle when you do, simply activate home mode for that time frame. 

Once set up you will see your home location with a circle around it - this circle represents a 200 meter radius around your home. When you enter this 200 meter radius between your nominated times your iKettle will be notified and begin to boil ready for your arrival.


Handy set up tips:

  • Ensure that location settings are active on your phone at all times - if your location settings are turned off your iKettle won't know when you're nearly home.
  • The Smarter app is running in the background at all times, you can double check this in your mobile devices app settings.
