Well that was a major fail!

Do not use this with any appliance that would be a hazard to run unattended!!!
Bought this instead of an outlet timer to automatically shut my electric teapot off after 5 min. That's the only thing I have it programmed for - no schedules, just 5 minute shutdown. It's been working great for 2 weeks. I can switch it on or off with the app or the outlet button, and it will power off after 5 minutes.
Today while I was working I heard it kick on all by itself. I let it go to see what it would do. It ran until all the water boiled away and kept on running - the very safety hazard I was hoping to avoid! Fortunately I was there to shut it off. No schedule in the app. No events in the log. No indication of why it happened.
I disabled and renabled the 5 minute shutoff, an it now appears to be working ok. But I can't depend on it with this old kettle. It might burn the house down. (Yes, I'm reluctantly shopping for a newer kettle.)
