    My mother-in-law had dementia, but was determined to stay in her own home. Unfortunately, she did not want to employ a caregiver, so we were perplexed as to how to honour her wishes and keep her safe.
    We made daily visits, but we also
    … More looked to technology to fill the gap. We installed web linked cameras all over the house, sewed tracking devices into her coats, got her a emergency lanyard, and installed an iGuardStove device.
    The iGuardStove was very easy to install and operate. Not only did it give us the peace of mind that the house wouldn't be set on fire by a forgotten pot, but it had other benefits.
    The motion detector told us what time she came into the kitchen every morning. It was a reliable indicator of her well-being. If we didn't get that alert within a half hour of her usual wake up time, we knew to call and check the cameras. Having this kind of information was really valuable.
    It also told us what time she went to bed, and if she hadn't been active for a set period. Again, we were able to use this info to keep tabs on her.
    In the end she stayed in her own home until after her 95th birthday and only spent a brief stay in hospital until passing away.
    I highly recommend the iGuardStove and the subscription. It's definitely worth every penny.

    The IGuard stove monitor is the most amazing tool ever. My mom has dementia and lived in our cottage for 8 years basically on her own but next door to our main house so this tool kept me feeling very safe knowing that if she forgot the … More stove on it would automatically turn off in 10 minutes all on its own. I would highly recommend this tool to anyone who is worried about an elderly parent that uses a stove. We were able to lock off the oven so that mom only had access to the stove top which gave her some independence, but also notified me every time the stove turned on and if it ever needed to do a forced turn off as well. Then I could phone her to make sure she was ok. I can't say enough great things about this incredible tool.

    This is a great product that helped my mother, who was experiencing the early signs of dementia, to maintain her independence for almost a year longer than we expected. One unexpected bonus was the sentry feature that alerted us when … More she entered the kitchen each day and reported back if the temperature had gone over or under our pre-sets. A great way to passively keep track of a loved one without them feeling like they are being watched every day.
  • Avatar Rick ★★★★★ 8 months ago
    I'd highly recommend the iGuardStove if your concerned about your loved one accidently leaving the stove on or you just want a non-intrusive way of making sure they are ok. My mom has dementia and this made it easy to confirm she was … More ok on the days she did not want to answer the phone. It has motion detection that sends just the right amount of text messages when she entered the kitchen after a while (or not at all during the day), or turned the stove on/off. Just plug it inline with their stove, connect to WiFi, and login to access the setup and see the logs, etc. The purchase price may seem high for some, but it is absolutely worth it for the peace of mind it gives. The alerts subscription service is less than $24/year, and Bill quickly and kindly responded to my emails.
  • Avatar Peyton Studio ★★★★★ a year ago
    I cannot recommend this product enough! It has been an absolute necessity for my father with Alzheimer. It is incredibly effective, easy to use, the customer service is fantastic. It has always worked without any issues and the peace … More of mind it has given me and my family is priceless.
  • Avatar vicki duckett ★★★★★ a year ago
    On two separate occasions iGuard alerted me that my mother had not appeared in the kitchen around her normal waking time. She had fallen in her bathroom and was not able to get up. If it was not for iGuard, I would not have rushed to her … More home to help her.
    Also, my mother loves to cook and iGuard gives us comfort in knowing that she can do so safely.
    I would highly recommend this product. The owner of the company, and staff members, provide excellent support as well.
  • Avatar Carla Samuels ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    This firesafety product has been that my parent with alzheimers was possibly going to lose her apartment for forgetting food cooking on the stove in 2020 and so far we have had no more complaints ...I'm so grateful that … More she is now able to stay in the home she loves for a while longer ,Thankyou!
  • Avatar Carlos Lopez ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    IGuard has given us a peace of mind we couldn't find without completely restructuring our lives. An excellent product if you have elderly people or large animals capable of manipulating the stove controls.
    Thank you so very much
    … More for creating this product. You are truly saving lives.
  • Avatar Jon Rossman ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    This device gave us piece of mind, as my mother-in-law lived alone for a period of time, and her memory was starting to fail her. I was able to get the iGuardFire installed and configured without much of an issue, and the founder, Bill, … More is extremely friendly and helpful for any questions you might have. You can also configure alerts for yourself and family members as desired.
  • Avatar Charles Norman ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    I had the iGuardStove Intelligent model installed on my mother’s gas stove last year because of her Alzheimer’s. The protection that this device provides has allowed my mother to continue her greatest love … which is cooking for her children … More and grandchildren! The iGuardStove turns the stove off automatically if my mother leaves the kitchen for more than 5 minutes (which she often does because she is so used to multitasking … having raised 7 children). She has gotten used to having to remain in the kitchen to cook. This device has brought so much joy to my mother! We can honestly say that her quality of life has improved because of it! We also appreciate the feature of Night Lock, which prevents her from using the stove after hours (during bedtime). And we love the new feature called “Activity Monitor,” which allows us to monitor my mother’s activity in the kitchen through the built-in motion detector — this way, we can check if she is getting up during the night and wandering into the kitchen. By the way, I called Bill Ferguson on his cell phone because of a minor connection issue, and he cleared it up right away. Customer support is amazing!
  • Avatar Way ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    This device is perfect for aging parents who still live independently but can sometimes be forgetful. We’ve had some close calls in the past (lots of burnt pot bottoms), but thanks to this device the stove shuts off after 5 minutes of inactivity. … More One has to press a button to keep the stove on and because its conveniently located just next to the stove its not hassle at all if you’re already cooking. This device is worth every penny for the piece of mind it gives all of us. Originally purchased for the aforementioned feature but they have since updated the device’s firmware to utilize an infrared motion sensor that notifying me when someone enters the kitchen (usually first thing in the morning) with a Good Morning!, or when there’s been a period of motionless inactivity prompting me to check on them. Love this device. Can’t say enough about it. Customer service from
    Bill Ferguson is fantastic as well! If you’re thinking about it just get it!!!
  • Avatar AA AA ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    The iGuardFire works perfectly! My gas plumber was easily able to install the solenoid valve, as well as mount the control unit to the underside of a kitchen cabinet. The unit doesn't even need to be connected to the internet; it's … More ready to go once you connect the ethernet cable that links the control unit and the solenoid valve. You can clearly and distinctly hear the valve open and close, so you know with absolute certainty what the valve position is. All you have to do is press the left-most button on the control unit that engages the "Start" command displayed on the LCD display, and the valve opens up. Press that same button to engage the "Stop" command, which displays after the valve is open. Best of all, the proximity sensor works great and has indeed shut off the solenoid valve whenever I was away from the stove for more than 5 minutes. This device has really taken a load off my mind because I cook all my meals first thing in the morning prior to going to my place of employment, so I sometimes wondered in the recent past whether or not I shut off the burners. Now that I have the iGuardFire, I don't even think about it anymore. I know it's quite an expensive device, but I'm truly glad I made the investment. One point of advice: make absolutely certain you know the size of your gas line. Almost all houses in the USA use 1/2" line, so if in doubt when you're on the iGuard shopping page, choose the 1/2" size valve. Worst case, if it turns out you needed 3/4" you can just have your gas plumber install reducer fittings on both ends of the valve to rectify the problem. Hope this review helps!

    I got tired of cleaning my Mom's nine burnt up pots and decided to look for a solution. Mom is in her nineties and has Dementia. I called around to some local appliance stores and asked if they knew of anything that would turn the … More stove off when my Mother walked away from it and that had no idea what I was wanting.
    I did an internet search and leave it to the clever Canadians to come up with this fantastic device. I'm handy so I installed it myself on my mothers gas stove and now I can sleep at nights. I like the fact that it sends me a text when she fires up the stove and that lets me know she is up and moving around. I also get a text when she walks away and has to do a restart on the stove and that can be multiple times. It can be programed many different ways and wasn't to hard to set up. I did have to call once and got great service on the phone and got my issue squared away.
    Very satisfied and it's been up and running for a year now.
    Thanks iGuard for coming up with this great devise. I did pass it on on my FB feed for those that have elder parents that are very forgetful.
  • Avatar Markus Lankeit ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Great product! While unfortunate, it is a common fact that many of us become forgetful and even confused as we age. My mother-in-law was no different, and would often leave things cooking. Sometimes, she would even turn on the wrong … More burner. She also had a habit of leaving wooden pot-warmers on top of the burners, because in her mind she was not using that burner. Many times, we would detect a "burnt" smell in her condo when we visited. This product was literally a life-saver. Easy to setup and manage remotely. My mother-in-law is in a nursing home now, and no longer gets near a stove. If you have loved ones that are starting to be forgetful or showing signs of confusion, I would highly, highly recommend you get this product.
  • Avatar Rose Wright ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    I love the Iguard Fire, it is a godsend. My mom is 99 and still lies at home. She turns her stove on and forgets. This has saved us a lot of worrying. I recommend it for anyone that is a little forgetful at times.
  • Avatar Christopher Kennedy ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    A wonderful product that allowed my mother to stay in her home longer while keeping her safe. It also eased the strains on me, caused by worrying about my mother’s well being while she was alone.
  • Avatar Lieba Savitt ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    I could not say enough good things! This gave us so much relief not worrying about my mother using the stove and forgetting it and leaving it on.
  • Avatar Brenda Moritz ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    This was the best product we found on the market. It gives our family peace of mind knowing that our parents are safe to cook in their home. This also allows for them to stay in their own home as they age. This product has so many amazing … More features that help to monitor movement in the home! I highly recommend this product to anyone who has aging parents that want to stay at home as long as they possibly can.
  • Avatar Carolyn Watts ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    My Mom has (had!) a habit of turning the stove on High "for just a minute", but then falling asleep. Final straw was when we came home from the grocery store and found her asleep in her chair, dogs freaking out in the back yard, … More smoke alarm beeping its brains out and the house full of smoke. We got the iGuard a few years ago, and this device is awesome!! I cannot tell you how many times it has saved my sweet Mom from burning the house down! My sis and I can leave the house and not worry, and it even alerts us when she turns the stove on, or is wandering at night!! Get one! NOW!
  • Avatar Karen Winters ★★★★★ 6 years ago
    The iGuard product has worked flawlessly as advertised and we couldn't be happier. Its giving our family great peace of mind that our parents are safe. I recommend one to anyone with aging parents.
  • Avatar Trish Power ★★★★★ 7 years ago
    FINALLLY, a Safety Product to help with our aging, or busy, forgetful minds!!!!
    I hope everyone buys one, especially for your loved ones to keep them safe! The I-guard is easy to use and foolproof. When you forget to turn off the stove,
    … More it does it for you. Brilliant! Why didn't we have this sooner, kind of like on an iron.
    Truly a great invention! Kudos to iGuardFire!

Testimonials Directly From Our Customers

✭✭✭✭✭ I was recently given an iGuardStove and easily connected myself. I do have Internet and Wi-Fi and found it easy to follow the step by step setup manual. I love having the protection and know that I don’t have to worry if I forget my cooking even if I think I won’t forget. One more thing I forgot to mention is that I am a young 83 year old. Thank you iGuardFire.

Joyce E – Penticton, BC

✭✭✭✭✭ Thank You iGuardStove for protecting my family and providing us with the peace of mind knowing lifes little cooking mistakes will not lead to disaster.

Bonnie J – Edmonton, AB

✭✭✭✭✭ I live in a busy house with 3 children (all of them are learning to use the stove) and there have been instances when they leave the cooking area unattended, greatly increasing the risk of smoke damage or a fire. iGuardStove is extra peace of mind knowing a disaster can be avoided before it starts.

Jeff K – Source Grove, AB

✭✭✭✭✭ Thank you again for your wonderful support and for your brilliant invention. I believe it has saved my mother-in-law’s life and property many times over and my wife and I are grateful to you and your colleagues for the work you do.

Chris P. – Arlington VA  

✭✭✭✭✭  We’ve had your IGuardStove device installed in my mother-in-law’s home for over a year now. I want you to know it’s been one of the best purchases we’ve made in giving us peace of mind about her safety. It’s easy to use, has worked without a hitch, and your new first activity alert is a great addition! 

You were so helpful when I first learned about your device and had so many questions. I even remember you telling me how your own cooking improved while testing your prototypes. 

 Anyway, with all the stressors going on around us these days, I just want you to know how grateful we are to you and your company for creating such a wonderful safety device! Wishing you all the best!!! Thank you and stay well!

Miriam B. – Oak Harbor, WA

✭✭✭✭✭ I just wanted to let you know our iGuardStove prevented a serious fire in our house yesterday. While I was running an errand, my mother decided to cook some bacon and then go do something else. Needless to say there was no grease fire, just some burnt bacon. Thank you for your great product and for it saving MY home.

Sharon S. – Phoenix, AZ

✭✭✭✭✭ Words cannot express our sincere gratitude for this product, and the wonderful service that we have received from this company. Firstly, I ordered the wrong unit, and the company graciously corrected my mistake at no extra cost, and without hesitation. Customer service like this is rare these days, and it is just wonderful to experience. The unit has been exactly what we wanted and more. We installed it easily in my mother-in-law’s residence, and we connected it to her Wi-Fi so that we get a history of events with her stove. Myself, my husband and my sister-in-law all get regular text messages and emails to let us know what is happening with my mother-in-law’s stove. Beyond the fire protection, we are alerted if there is no activity in the residence for a certain amount of time, and also if there is unusual activity, such as the stove being turned on in the middle of the night. This helps us to support my mother-in-law to be independent, and gives us much peace of mind, knowing that it is almost like another set of eyes watching out for her. This unit has been just a lifesaver for us, and we could not be more grateful. It is exactly what we wanted and more. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Andrew M. – Reaboro, ON

✭✭✭✭✭ OMG!!! WE LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!  My sister and I got it all hooked up, tested, downloaded the app on our phones, and even mom is THRILLED!!!  After countless burned suppers, ruined pots and pans, a couple of scary fires, and having to unplug the stove every time we went somewhere and left mom at home, finally, FREEDOM IS HERE!!!

And that is freedom for ALL of us, mom included. She has to do NOTHING. She just uses the stove as normal, only now, when she puts cookies in the oven, falls asleep in her chair and doesn’t hear the timer, we don’t have to buy new cookie sheets!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!! I am telling everyone I know about this product!!!
Sis and I are off for a bike ride now! No having to unplug the stove first!!!

Carolyn W. – Boise, Idaho

✭✭✭✭✭  I so do appreciate your detailed answers to my simple and yet complicated questions… I can see that you care about the people who buy your product and that really means a lot to me ….making your device an addition to my dads home that gives comfort and a sense of security that we lose when our mature parents start having issues that they don’t realize they have. All around the best investment in safety and peace of mind of loved ones.

Rebecca S. – Culver City, CA

✭✭✭✭✭  Our family absolutely loves the iGuardStove. I purchased the unit for my parent’s house who are in their 80’s. My mom has dementia and forgets to turn off the stove. She burned some pots pretty badly, which is why I purchased the iGuardStove. It has given us peace of mind knowing the unit will turn the stove off. My sister and me get the texts and we love it. We like to know whenever they turn the stove on because then we know they’re in the kitchen and that’s when we call them since we know they’re awake and close to the phone (they keep the phone in the kitchen.

Mick E.  – Ardmore, PA

✭✭✭✭✭ I was working with a young woman that has a seizure disorder. She bakes for her local fire and police departments regularly as a show of gratitude for all they do. She had a seizure while taking cookies out of the oven and fell onto the door of the oven and then partially onto the floor. The stove shut down as it was designed to and we are all grateful as it saved her life as well as the many others in the apartment complex by potentially preventing a fire.

Thanks iGuard!

Tera C.  – Newport, MD

✭✭✭✭✭  I TOTALLY love my iGuardStove.

Dean – Munroe, WA

✭✭✭✭✭ Thanks for all your updates to the software. You have a remarkable product and I’m so thankful that I found it. My relative was able to live for about 2 more years on their own with the iGuardStove. This made all the difference.

Charles N. – Sacramento, CA

✭✭✭✭✭  I bought this product for my elderly mother about 14 months ago. The install, setup and sync, with the Wi-Fi was fairly easy for me, and I’m a novice with anything electrical or computer related. My mother has moderate Alzheimer’s. 15 months ago she left the stove on and melted the bottom off an aluminum clad stainless steel pot. I can’t say enough about how well this product performs for my circumstance. If she forgets the stove is on, it shuts off automatically, and I see the User History. I also know that she is eating by checking the User History on my laptop. This is an invaluable tool to keep your parents from a nursing home. For the price of 2 days in a nursing home this product is a bargain! WE love our iGuardStove and I really don’t think that my mother could live at home without it. It is the number one most important piece of equipment to keep Mom at home. Outstanding product!

John K. – Hazel Green, WI

✭✭✭✭✭ I installed the iGuardStove Gas about a year ago, and it is one of the best investments I ever made. It has saved me more than once this past year from having a kitchen fire. My wife of 55 yrs. is an invalid and I do all the cooking and between that and working on my computer I can easily lose track of time and because of this I have experienced some exciting times putting out grease fires in the kitchen. Luckily, I was able to extinguish the fires before any real damage was done. The real culprit of a grease fire in a frying pan is the smoke that fills the house causing breathing problems for My Wife and I. I would suggest that anyone who has a similar situation such as myself, invest in an iGuardStove Gas, as it is a solid instrument that could easily save your life or that of others in your home. The peace of mind is another benefit that you can’t put a price on. Thank you IGuardFire.

Tom K. – Annapolis, MD

✭✭✭✭✭ Your Guard stove device was installed in my mother’s home last May. My mother lives alone in her own home and has developed short-term memory problems. What a great relief it is to know that my mother is no longer at risk of forgetting that her stove or oven is on and causing a fire. Your device is enabling my mother to continue to live safely in her own home, and has brought me great peace of mind.

I am hoping that other families will hear about your device, and am fine if you want to share my enthusiastic commendation.

Kathleen W. – Vancouver, BC

✭✭✭✭✭ I searched for two years for a product like this and I bought it as soon as I saw it. It has been 18 months since I installed the iGuardStove. I used the data that it collected to determine my mother’s eating habits and to determine if she was eating a hot meal on a regular basis and it also allowed me to chart a progression of her dementia. With the iGuardStove installed I gave me peace of mind that she was safe. The usage calendar had shown me that the stove had been activated up to six times a day. Each time I received the notification text that the stove had been shut off automatically, I called her to see if everything was ok. Stove safety has slowly entered memory muscle and is now the iGuardStove only shuts the stove off maybe once or twice a week with the same regular Stove usage.

It has allowed her to maintain her independence and live in her own home. If I was to put a dollar value on the actual savings to this point I would say in Retirement home fees alone it is near $70,000. It was a great investment.

Peace of mind is Priceless

Jim B. – St. Johns, Newfoundland Canada

✭✭✭✭✭ Our iGuardStove arrived Monday morning it is now installed.  It has made an 83 year old lady with early stage dementia happy that she could use her stove again.  iGuardFire seems like a great outfit to deal with and it’s been a very satisfying experience.

Bryan M. – Garden Bay, BC

✭✭✭✭✭  Here at Alfred University we are served by a volunteer fire department. They are the A.E. Crandall Hook and Ladder Company. There would be weeks that they would respond to one of our program houses (Honors House) 2-3 times a week for what ended up being smoke from a pot left on the stove too long, something that someone overcooked because they were not paying attention, etc.

Recognizing we had a problem, and wanting to ensure the appropriate use of our volunteer fire department Alfred University started researching how to mitigate this issue. We came across your product from iGuardFire (iGuardStove) and installed it in the Honors House. The Honors House was going to serve as a testing site for the product for us as they were the most “visited” by the volunteer fire department. I can tell you that since the iGuardStove product has been installed, the volunteer fire department has not responded ONCE, in the almost 3 years of use in the Honors House.

The amount of time, effort, and energy this product has saved, is priceless. Additionally, the peace of mind and safety that it provides is undeniable. Thank you Bill for all of the effort you are putting in to such a quality product. You have faithfully answered all of my questions and helped address the differing concerns that face a University Campus.

Mike Honeycutt – Alfred University – Alfred, NY

✭✭✭✭✭ I am in my 90’s and caring for my wife who has onset Dementia and cannot be left alone while I go out to do grocery shopping.On the advice of our local electrician I bought an iGuardStove unit. The unit has been a God Send to my wife and I.  Since I am a retired priest in an area that I have worked for 38 years I have a lot of contacts.  If you send me brochures I’d be more than happy tom pass them around

George B – Florida

✭✭✭✭✭ The iGuard Stove has saved our life. My husband has memory issues and was having problems turning off the stove. Now I know we are safe and I can sleep at night. The company always takes my call and helps me with any changes I need to make. We did not find any other system that would protect us. I would recommend it for anyone, but especially for people with memory issues.
