Re: remote start

Watching the last episode of the Gadget Show, one of the Air Fryers on tests was controlled by an app, FFS!! And I mean *all* of the settings, as far as I could see, no manual controls other than an on/off switch ie a "sleep button". This is a device you really should not be controlling remotely. They didn't specify how the phone talked to the Air Fryer, so I suppose it could be BlueTooth, but I suspect it's a cloud connected server a few 1000 miles away where they can record exactly when and how you use it.
