Fire and smoke safety for vulnerable residents

false alarm

Reduces smoke alarms

Airis acts proactively, which means a drastic reduction of smoke alarm activations and subsequent alarms to the alarm response centre.

Airis stove guard can be used on any hob powered by electricity, including induction.

Saves costs of meal provision

Airis means independence and an improved quality of life. As it allows people to cook safely for themselves, meal provision – and its associated cost – is no longer necessary.


Prevents fires and toxic smoke

Airis protects vulnerable people from the risk of fire and toxic smoke inhalation. It doesn’t wait for fires – it prevents them, and all without affecting everyday cooking.

Why stop people cooking just because they're a little forgetful?

From planning meals to shopping, preparing, cooking, eating and washing up, the whole process of cooking exercises numerous skills, both cognitive and physical.

Cooking helps to maintain a person’s dignity, their physical dexterity, their cognitive abilities and of course their independence.

People at 80 have twice the number of cooking fires and those with physical or cognitive difficulties are at greater risk. But with Airis, these are no longer justifications to stop someone cooking.

Connecting to Telecare

Airis connects to any Telecare system via standard wireless devices such as those provided by Tynetec, Doro and Tunstall. The PCU (power control unit) has two no-volt outputs which are ideal for connection to any telecare wireless device. These outputs can be inverted if required. Various conditions can be set. By default, the outputs indicate:

OFF OFF – Nothing to report
OFF ON – Normal cooking detected
ON OFF – Alarm. Airis has cut the power to prevent fire or smoke
ON ON – Fault detected

“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.”

“Our installation team have found this product very easy to programme and explain the operation to our client. Our clients feel more confident with the product and have said they don’t notice that it’s there.”

“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”
