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.

Rated 5 stars by our customers

Airis is extremely reliable

Since early 2018, we have supplied many customers, all with several hundred Airis stove guard systems each, and we are pleased to say that our failure returns rate is lower than 0.5%!

Airis has a design life of 15 years and is made in a factory that specialises in high build quality. This encompasses automated state-of-the-art quality testing of the production processes, integrated with quality management. Unicook has visited the factory and inspected the end-to-end process first-hand. Each Multisensor and PCU assembly is electronically examined at many stages, culminating in a test at maximum load.

If you would like to talk to a customer, please let us know and we’ll be pleased to arrange contact.

Suitable for all electric hobs

Airis stove guard can be used on any hob up to 90cm wide powered by electricity, including induction.

Certified BS EN 50615

Airis fulfils and goes far beyond the requirements of the BS EN 50615 standard, and helps meet certain building regulations.

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

“This device works exactly as described and gives me great peace of mind as my relative is many miles away. Just as important though is the help and support from Unicook themselves, they made sure that the unit would do what I wanted it to do and could be fitted in the correct location. Even gave me a follow-up call to make sure everything was working as it should. I cannot fault the product or the service.”

“Installed for my ageing mother who is showing early signs of dementia. It is important that she maintains her independence as long as possible and, as the main cook in my parents’ household, my father can rest a little easier that she is safe when cooking. I have peace of mind that dad can relax a little and that mum can continue to enjoy one of her lifelong, favourite activities.”

“I bought this for an elderly relative who lives by themselves and who can be occasionally forgetful. As they cook for themselves, this product seemed like the ideal solution for peace of mind – both for my relative and for the family as a whole. A local electrician installed the product within 20 minutes… My only concern when buying the product was that it may be over-sensitive like smoke alarms can sometimes be, but this has not been the case.”

“My mum lives alone since my Dad passed away a couple of years ago and I was worried about her cooking… Now she wouldn’t be without it as over Christmas the phone rang and she forgot she was cooking. She said when she went back to the kitchen, cooking had stopped as the food she was frying started to burn and the Airis cut the power”
