This week, we have some exciting news to share – the Airis-C, a ceiling-mounted stove guard, is now available.
Known in other countries as the Aurora, the Airis-C works in much the same way as the Airis; it consists of a sensor unit, and a control unit. The sensor communicates with the controller and vice-versa, reporting on several metrics in real-time, allowing for the detection of risk while simultaneously checking that the unit is functioning normally and that it’s been installed correctly.
The key difference between the Airis-C and Airis is the new installation possibilities that a ceiling-mounted solution creates. The Airis sensor is mounted on the cooker hood, or on the wall above and behind the stove. This is suitable for the majority of stoves. If your cooker is situated within an island in the middle of the kitchen though, the options become more limited, and the lack of a cooker hood in this situation means installing an Airis is not possible at all.
The Airis-C has a remote control for resetting the power when a ‘near miss’ has occurred. This makes the Airis-C ideal for elderly people who may have impaired mobility, as they don’t need to reach the sensor to reset the power.
Help from above
The Airis-C stove guard completely removes the need to consider the site of the cooker. It is capable of functioning in a broad range of situations, because it has a wide angle of detection. This means it does not need to be directly above the stove, and can be sited to one side of it as well. It can even be mounted on angled ceilings!
Practicalities aside, for some the Airis-C will be a preferred option simply due to aesthetic considerations – it leaves the cooker hood or wall devoid of a sensor. It also looks much like a conventional smoke or CO (Carbon Monoxide) detector. For the user, this means a familiar environment.

After all, who looks at the ceiling, anyway?
