    Thanks to RexBeckett we now have button status

    04 Feb 2015
    Now states the current status of the kettle on the status label of the plugin - Currently a 5 second delay... this will be reduced after more testing.

    Excellent, I look forward to it. Were you able to find a way around the issue of getting status updates from the ikettle? Seemed like a no-go from the 'hacking the ikettle' blog i read...

    Hope you like it... I hope today I can figure out the last bits to bring it release candidate status. Just need to figure out how I make the buttons change according to status

    Please give me any feedback you can when testing.

    I managed to get around to trying this plugin (with UI5). Thanks for making this!
    It does most of the basics that I need (Boil & Off) plus some others that I've not tested yet (and unlikely to use day-to-day).
    I am pleased to see that I can probably set up scenes with Advanced settings to set many other iKettle options (like temperature, warm-up, etc.), but I've not tried them yet.
    The status in Vera updates nicely from "Kettle Idle" to "Boiling". I notice that when it reaches temperature, the status changes briefly to "Kettle Busy", before returning to Kettle Idle. I'm not sure why that is, or what it means. It is nice to see I can display this status text in HomeWave too, but I'd suggest removing the unnecessary Kettle prefix, so that it is simply Idle, Boiling, Busy.
    I did try to set up a basic scene to trigger when "Device is boiling", but unfortunately this didn't trigger. Is that not implemented yet?
    Great work so far.

    Hey
    Thanks for the full report. I've advanced greatly since this version. I'm excited by some of the changes I've made.
    I have tidied things up and some nice icon states.

    The kettle busy means that things are in an uncertain state..  Because I poll the kettle for status.. And this happens every 5secs. Future versions won't need this. This is my first plugin so for now it provides for debug feedback.
    I will make the kettle prefix optional.

    Hi. I uploaded 11 Feb release this evening. Seems to mostly work like the previous version did.
    Boil and Off buttons highlighted to show status.  :)
    95 degree temp says no implementation, but 65 and 100 seem to work OK. Might be nice if those buttons could remain highlighted until kettle finished boiling, so that it is clear what the set temperature is.
    Although I uploaded the icons to /www/cmh/images , I'm not seeing those -- I just get the generic circle. I've tried reloading, refreshing browser, and rebooting Vera, so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong there.
    I retested scene trigger when boiling, but Vera still does not trigger. Will that be implemented in next release?
    Many thanks.
