Kitchen safety is a number one priority in most homes. It is far too easy to simply walk away from a hot stove where you were cooking and forget all about it. Allowing a pot to "boil dry" has happened to almost everyone at least once, or burning dinner when life's other distractions get in the way. These sort of accidents can lead to "Careless Cooking" fires which are the most common type of household fire. Just the smoke damage from one of the fires can cause thousands of dollars in damage, and that is if you get it under control right away!
The Stove Guard is the solution to stopping these type of fires and accidents. Perfect for anyone with Alzheimer's or even a cook who is just easily distracted. The Stove Guard works by monitoring motion in the kitchen, by default it will automatically shut the stove off 1 minute after the last time motion was detected. The delay time is completely adjustable to allow each user to personalize their system for their needs and cooking style. If the Stove Guard does not detect motion for the preset time period (meaning the kitchen is empty) it will shut the stove off but continue monitoring for motion and turn the stove back on when someone returns to the kitchen.
Anyone can install the Stove Guard for a typical electric range style stove. However the Cook Top model and the Natural Gas models require a licensed electrician or gas fitter respectively to install them.

This is a great product, my gran had a small fire on the stove last month and now I don't feel so anxious about her when I'm not there. We had to have a professional installer come by since it was a gas stove - but all in all it's a great product!
