Consisting of an intelligent heat sensor and a control unit, the Sona Stove Guard SGEL-SN-1 by FireAngel is an innovative safety device that effectively prevents electric cooker fires from starting. Attached to the cooker hood or wall, the intelligent heat sensor assesses the temperature of the cooker top and its rate of rise, identifying when a hazardous situation occurs. On detection of a hazard, the heat sensor wirelessly communicates with the control unit, which in turn cuts off the electricity supply to the cooker. Ideal for a range of applications, the Sona Stove Guard helps to promote independent living and improve kitchen safety.

Q. What's the difference between the Innohome Stove Alarm and the Stove Guard?
The Innohome Stove Alarm is an intelligent heat sensor that monitors the cooker top temperature and its rate of rise. The sensor sounds an alarm when the temperature exceeds safe levels, providing an alert for you to switch off the cooker as soon as possible.
The Innohome Stove Guard is made up of two parts - a heat sensor and a control unit. The heat sensor works in the same way as the Stove Alarm; however it has built-in wireless capability that sends a signal to the control unit which is connected to the cookers electricity supply. When triggered, the control unit cuts off the power to the cooker, effectively preventing a fire from igniting.
Q. How does the Innohome alarm recognise the difference between when I'm cooking and a hazard happening?
When first installed, the Innohome alarm needs to adjust to the installation environment and the users' cooking styles. If the sensor sounds during a normal cooking situation, press the reset button on the sensor during the pre-alarm signal. This will enable the sensor to reduce its sensitivity and learn that the situation was not hazardous.
Q. I don't have a hood above my cooker. How can I install the Innohome alarm?
Both the Innohome Stove Alarm and Stove Guard feature integrated magnets which allow for the sensors to be fitted to the cooker hood. In cases where there is no cooker hood, the sensors can be fitted to the wall using screws. Installation instructions are supplied with each unit.
Q. Can the Innohome Stove Guard be used with gas cookers as well as electric?
The Innohome Stove Guard is supplied with a junction box and cable suitable for connection to an electric cooker. Currently, the Stove Guard is only suitable for electric cookers in the UK; however the product is in the development stages for gas cooker suitability.
