Fire Safety in Retirement Living

Airis provides the very best fire safety for retirement living, protecting residents from kitchen fires and toxic smoke inhalation without any need to take away their right to cook for themselves.

Airis Prevents Fires Intelligently

Airis uses a unique patented temperature measurement technique to accurately measure the temperature of pans on a hob.

Measuring the temperature of the pan is difficult because different materials radiate differently. In fact, when a simple infrared thermometer is used, a stainless steel pan at 100C might be read as 50C. Airis is the only device that overcomes this problem.

Keep retired residents safe from kitchen fires

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.

Protects residents’ investments and boosts confidence in their safety and independence

Using Airis 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.

  • Eliminating false alarms caused by cooking
