Kitchen stove fire protection for vulnerable people

Safera Sense provides kitchen stove fire protection for vulnerable people who are in assisted living. This could be in permanent or temporary arrangements for both young and older people who require more personal care services than they might manage on their own.

Safera Sense enables people to cook safely for themselves, providing independence and the freedom to continue doing the things they love. It protects all residents in the building or village by significantly reducing the risk of kitchen fires.

Safera Sense will:

  • Protect vulnerable people from the risk of fire and smoke inhalation
  • Protect residents with mobility issues preventing them from responding quickly to a kitchen fire
  • Protect residents when they cook and may have been distracted or fallen asleep
  • Reduce fire and smoke alarm activations
  • Reduce building evacuations and fire service call-outs
  • Improve the wellbeing of residents by promoting dignity, independence and freedom for those living with physical or mental challenges
  • Provide care staff with insights into the wellbeing and cooking habits of residents

When paired with a Cloud Care Team package, management staff can remotely monitor when:

  • Power has been cut to the stove to prevent a fire, smoke or food burning
  • Power has been cut to the stove which exceeds a specified number of times in a set period
  • A resident hasn’t cooked for a specified amount of time e.g. 2 days
  • A resident has been cooking at unusual times
  • The kitchen is excessively hot or cold, humid or damp
  • A water leak has been detected
  • The PCU or sensor must be replaced
  • A sensor battery is running low
