The iGuardStove is a motion based stove fire prevention solution that senses when you have left the kitchen area. Once it can’t see you its countdown timer gives you 5 minutes to return to the kitchen or it will simply turn the stove off. Once it sees that you have returned to the kitchen it automatically turns the stove back on to resume your cooking.
How We Use It To Support the Need
The iGuardStove can be used for safety by alerting someone when they leave the stove on. It will also shut the stove off after a period of time, which prevents a fire hazard. It promotes independence because the user would need less supervision in the kitchen.
