Stove Alarm and Sensor

Unattended cooking equipment is the leading contributing factor to kitchen fires, with the elderly and senior citizens with disabilities being especially vulnerable.


Protect Your Loved Ones and Property From Kitchen Fires Before They Start

Safeguard your home and family with the iGuardStove solution. This plug-in device features advanced motion sensing and timer technology that turns off your stove automatically when not in use. Round the clock monitoring of kitchen activity with text/email alerts provides peace of mind for those with seniors living alone and prevents the risk of smoke, fire, and water damage.

The iGuardStove is an easy to use motion sensor control device that simply shuts off the stove when it doesn’t see any motion in the kitchen for a full five minutes. However, every time it sees you move within those five minutes it will continuously reset the countdown timer BACK to the full five minutes over and over again which ultimately rewards you with continuous cooking.  It’s only when you are gone for the full five minutes that the iGuardStove will step-in and shut off the stove.

When cooking a roast or simmering a sauce you can easily increase the countdown timer for longer times.

  • Automatic Shut Off/Manual Timer – Motion sensor & countdown timer automatically shuts off the stove after 5 up to 15 minutes of no motion. Can be manually set for longer uninterrupted cooking time.

  • Gas and Ambient Temperature Sensors – Detects and warns of unburned gas (gas model only) and when hot or cold temperature limits are exceeded in a home. (ie: can prevent frozen pipes)

The Dangers Of Leaving The Stove On?

To reduce the chances of a kitchen fire it is important to control the access to the stove. Thanks to strides in technology, companies have introduced gadgets with smart features that can automatically shut off stoves and burners.

The Stove Sensor is one such device that comes with an automatic feature to shut down the stove after it has been left unattended for a certain time. This way the device not only minimizes the risk of fire but also eliminates it in most cases.

According to a statistic, almost a third of deaths that occur due to residential fires happen as a result of a fire starting in the kitchen. Cooking fires are also the leading cause of home fire injuries. It is also important to note that we will never know the true extent of the damages and injuries caused by kitchen fires, as many minor incidents are not reported to local authorities or fire departments.

Therefore, if you are an aged individual or have an elderly relative that lives alone and has a neurological or cognitive condition you should definitely consider buying an automotive stove shut-off device. 

This simple device is a life-saver and a clever solution to make cooking a safer activity for you and your family.

Stove Sensor General FAQS

It works with a combination motion sensor and a count down timer. The count down timer starts to count only AFTER the motion sensor can’t see you. If you return while the timer is counting down it will automatically reset to its maximum time. If it times out and shuts off the stove while you were out it will automatically turn the stove back on when it sees that you have returned. Plus it has a lot of other great features listed on there features page.

The proximity sensor covers an area of about 8 – 10 feet in a cone shape. The further from the device you are, the wider the cone pattern. It is designed to keep users close to the stove where they can keep an eye on their cooking. It wouldn’t do it’s job if it picked you up while you were watching TV far from the stove.

The Stove Sensor is the best option. With this device, you don’t have to worry about remembering to turn off the stove as the device will do that for you. 

If we compare electric stoves with gas stoves they are a lot safer. In a gas stove, there is not only the risk of fires but there is also a risk of gas leaks if there is an issue with the gas line or knobs. There is also a possibility that gas might escape without igniting and cause carbon monoxide poisoning.

Installation FAQS

The electric model does not require an electrician. Any handyman can do the job in about 15 minutes. Everything plugs together and the control panel mounts with 2 screws. For a safe installation of the iGuardStove gas model we recommend it be installed by a certified plumber or gas line fitter. Check out the Installation videos under our Resources Menu for step-by-step details.

The control panel works with a proximity motion sensor so it needs a good view of your kitchen work area. It is best mounted to one side of the stove underneath one of the upper kitchen cabinets. This way when you are moving about the kitchen the sensor will see you and keep resetting the timer to its maximum setting so the stove will continue to cook.

There is a Late Night Lock Out feature that allow the stove to be disabled during specific hours of the day and certain days of the week. This means that you can lock out the stove from say 9pm at night until 7am the next morning to prevent sleepy, late night snackers from turning on the stove, forgetting they did so and then falling back asleep, putting their home and safety in jeopardy.
