Connected kettles boil over, spill Wi-Fi passwords over London

100℃ ??

100℃ may be a fine cut off point at sea level. Move to a higher altitude, and the atmospheric pressure drops, and with it the boiling point.

For this idea to work properly, you'd need a barometer built in to the kettle, feeding it's output to the off switch.
