Keep retired residents safe from kitchen fires

Airis protects the house or apartment

Protects residents' investments

Airis is a proactive safety device, which means a significantly lower risk of fire as well as smoke damage. Residents can live independently and safely.


Genuine fire prevention

Older technology doesn’t prevent fires; it waits for them. Airis protects residents from the risk of fire and toxic smoke inhalation.

Time managent COLOUR

Reduces management overhead

A decreased activation of fire alarm systems and smoke alarms results in a better deployment of resources.

Airis stove guard prevents fires intelligently

As we age, we can become forgetful, especially if we develop dementia. With Airis, residents can continue to cook for themselves without having to worry that they might accidentally leave their cooking unattended.

Airis provides peace of mind for the residents and management personnel in the knowledge that smoke detectors, heat sensors and sprinkler systems won’t be activated by cooking incidents.

Additionally, in Extra Care and Assisted Living, Airis can have a huge impact on a person’s life.

Using Airis stove guard to maximise kitchen fire safety in Retirement Living

Airis enables residents to age gracefully and cook independently with a dramatically reduced risk of kitchen fires and smoke. However, Airis Sense WiFi also enables advanced remote monitoring and alarm features via Airis Cloud, which can reveal otherwise invisible risks and serve as an invaluable tool to on-site personnel.

Airis allows for cost savings in Assisted Living and Extra Care

By acting before a fire or significant smoke is produced, there are many ways in which Airis saves time and money, such as:

  • Eliminating false alarms caused by cooking
  • Reducing staff investigations and reporting
  • Enabling residents to safely cook for themselves
  • Delaying the onset of full-time care or meal provision
  • Avoiding repairs and insurance claims due to fire and/or smoke damage
  • Preventing water damage from sprinkler systems
  • Avoiding the cost of temporary rehousing following a kitchen fire
  • Preventing damage from water leaks
  • Avoiding clean-up and/or redecoration following extinguisher use
