How it Works
We strongly advise you to NEVER leave the stove unattended if you are cooking with grease or oil, but we all know that people still do, whether intentionally “for only a moment” or by an unforeseen distraction. Both can lead to catastrophic consequences that can be far reaching into family, friends and community.
Stay protected with the Stove Alert app. It's only $1.95 to buy on your iPhone and $4.95
to buy on your Android ... both are a small price to pay for safety and peace of mind!
Simple to use:
Stove Alert Timer APP instructions:
Once you have downloaded the APP to your phone, always activate your Stove Alert timer before you turn on the stove so that the APP timer will remind you that the stove is on ... in the event you become distracted from the stove to help prevent stove top fires.
1/ Stove Alert is designed to operate over your phones auto-lock feature.
2/ Turn phone volume on the highest setting.
3/ Set timer by choice of hour(s), minute(s) and seconds. (Setting it to ONE or TWO minutes with 5 repeats is highly recommended to protect in the event of distraction from the stove ... especially when cooking with grease or oil). The quicker you are reminded that the stove is on, the greater your chances of preventing a stove top fire.
4/ Tap "Start" to activate the Stove Alert timer.
5/ Tap "Stop" to deactivate the Stove Alert timer.
(for greater safety, it is recommended that you "Stop" timer only after you turn off the stove).
6/ Close app.
7/ When opening the app again for use, tap "Start" and then "Stop" first.
This will reset timer so that you can repeat steps 1 to 6 above.
The app will remind you that the stove is on by sounding a 5 second BEEP ALERT and while the ALERT is being sounded, your smart phone will also vibrate and flash and display a text reminder on your screen.
When cooking with oils or grease, we recommend setting the alert timer to 1 minute with 5 repeats.
We recommend setting the repeat mode to 5 times. That means after your one or two minute stove alert timer sound, it will repeat another five times, every one or two minutes.
Upon the final repeat, the triple alert will sound, vibrate, flash camera light for a duration of one full minute ... and will also display a text reminder on your screen. .
Works over Phone functions:
While the stove is in use, it is most safe to refrain from using any other applications or phone functions.
However, since other phone functions and applications do often distract people form the stove, the Stove Alert APP timer is designed to work over other phone functions and works to alert you even if the phone rings, if you are engaged in a telephone conversation, if you are texting, browsing the net, or browsing through youtube as these are all common distractions.
However, we recommend not to engage in any of these other phone applications while your stove is on and when your Stove Alert Timer is in use.
The best way to prevent a fire in your kitchen is to turn off the stove when leaving the kitchen ... even if you are planning to leave the kitchen for just a minute.
Stove Alert Timer should only be used as a backup STOVE-ON-REMINDER in the event you become distracted from the stove.
