On the Calendar for each day a number of icons will appear showing you a quick summary with the number of those events beside it in brackets i.e.: (4). You can search back up to 12 months provided the stove has been connected to the system for that long, and you can drill into any day to see what has been happening with the stove.

Add a Device
Add a Device
This button allows you to add additional stoves to your account. If you are a multi user you can add as you wish.
MAC Address – This number is found on the back of the Control Panel as well as on the box. You can see an example of where the number and label is in the picture below.
Security Code – The Security Code is the 3 digit code on the label.
Name – This is the name of the stove. If you only have the one then name it something familiar. If you have many stoves then you could start with the building name and then the suite number followed by the users last name or something that helps tell them apart. The names are sorted alphabetically as well as numerically.
Click Add Device and the process is complete.
Alerts and Contacts as well as Additional Contacts
Alerts & Contacts
The Main Contact is the one you set up for your Account that manages all the stoves. These Contacts are for additional people who would like to receive Alerts. You might want other family members, neighbours or care workers. Neighbours can receive Alerts that require immediate attention such as an Emergency Shut Off Alert or you might want a family member or maintenance person to receive a Loss of Communication Alert that is not as critical.
You can customize each of the Contacts to choose who receives what type of Alerts and by which delivery method they choose the get them. Either by email or by SMS Text to their smart phone..
Emergency Alert can tell you that someone has pushed the button to quickly shut off the stove for reasons that are obviously a concern to them or simply that they need your immediate attention. The Alerts can be sent whether the stove is in use or not.
Loss of Communication tells you that for whatever reason the iGuardStove is no longer connected to the central server and that troubleshooting is required. This could simply mean that the router may have been unplugged or that the Wi-Fi has gone down. What ever the reason the iGuardStove will continue to operate under the settings that it has last recieved. The Loss of Communication simply means that History data is not being sent to the central server. When the device is reconnected it will up load the Recent History to update the records.
Auto Shut Offs within 24 hrs is an Alert that is designed to let you know if someone is forgetting the stove too often during a 24 hour period. This may reflect that someones forgetfulness has reached a level that you feel is becoming hazardous and can therefore make changes to their level of care. It can also suggest that someone might be having other issues that you need to follow up on.
Monthly User History for the last 12 months
Monthly User History
Monthly User History – will show you the Calendar view and any recent history of events for the current day. On the Calendar for each day a number of icons will appear showing you a quick summary with the number of those events beside it in brackets i.e.: (4). You can search back up to 12 months provided the stove has been connected to the system for that long.
Clicking on that day will open up the list of events for that day as seen on the next slide called Recent History. You can scan back as far as 12 months to determine any changes in memory by the User.
Keep in mind as far as privacy issues go this system collects simple anonymous information on stove usage and not identities of individuals.
Recent User History and interaction with the stove
The Recent History shows the interactions that have happened with the stove through out the day. It will record events such as Auto Shut Offs, use of Manual Override Timers, Lock Out times and other events and it shows them by the minute. If something happens in the kitchen that you need to anywise you can see step by step as to the chain of events .
The different icons for the events is located at the bottom of the Calendar view.
How to use the Settings page to Customize your iGuardStove Intelligent
The Settings page will allow you to customize each iGuardStove to suit the Users needs. You can set the time zone that you are in, rename the stove, set up the Late Night Lock Outs and other features. Each of the features will be described in other sections below on the expandable page.
The iGuardStove is designed to be a set it and forget it device. All of the settings have defaults that quickly allows you to set up your account, add the stove and then you are done. The only time you will need access the settings are if something changes in the users life and you wish to change the level of protection. Other than that the only information you might need is in the History sections and that again is typically only looked at if questions come up about the usage of the stove.
So as soon as you add the stove the iGuardStove begins to protect your family, home and structures.
Stove Identity and Time Zone
The Stove Identity allows you to rename the stove if the user changes. It also allows you to correctly chose the time zone that the stove is in so the Recent History reports as accurate.
You can also find the iGuardStoves MAC Address if you ever need this for trouble shooting.
The Firmware version tells you if your iGuardStove has the latest software inside. As we come up with new features it will be included in the next firmware update. You can contact us to see if a newer version is available. We do not automatically push through Firmware updates unless they are critical to the way the device will function.
Audible and Visual Alerts
Audible and Visual Alerts
Your iGuardStove has the ability to warn you prior to it shutting off the stove automatically. This will allow the user to re-enter the kitchen causing the count down timer to rest thereby not having the stove shut off automatically.
The audible beeps are designed to be heard over other typical noises in the kitchen so the user can hear it from a distance over tv’s and other distracting sounds. The beeps can start for as long as up to 2 minutes before shut down for as little as 3 seconds. It beeps every second so you might want to keep it shorter but it is customizable to each users needs. If needed it can even be disabled all together.
The strobes work the same way and are designed to catch someones attention if they are hearing impaired.
When the stove has ALREADY been shut off and is automatically turning back on when the user has returned there will be 2 short sets of 3 beeps reminding the user that the stove is re-starting. This is important as you do not want the stove doing something the user is not expecting. These beeps are in the firmware and are not adjustable due to their importance to safety.
This is the online adjustments for the Intelligent model.
If you have a Smart then you can access the adjustment from the Menu Screen.
Auto Shut Off Count Down Timer
Auto Shut Off Count Down Timer
This timer is the heart of your iGuardStove as it determines how long the user has to be away from the motion sensor before it will shut off the stove. The default out of the box is 5 minutes as we have determined that this is the Goldilocks zone. It’s not too quick nor is it too long. After the stove has been automatically shut off due to absence when the device sees the user return to the kitchen it will automatically restart the stove without having to touch and controls.
The timer can be adjusted anywhere from 1 to 15 minutes to custom it for the user but if you change it please keep this in mind. A lot can happen in 5 minutes and don’t forget that the iGuardStove is designed to keep you safe when you are not attentive. If you set it to 15 minutes because you don’t want to have to be as attentive to the stove and come back every 5 minutes you are increasing the danger that something bad could happen.
If the user is milling about the kitchen and the motion sensor can see this the Auto Shut Off countdown timer will keep resetting to it’s set maximum level and will allow the stove to continue cooking as long as it can see you.
NOTE: The timer is an internal action and is not shown on the screen. When the stove is turned on and the iGuardStove wakes up the words “Protection Enabled” will appear on the screen letting you know that it is working. We have chosen to not have the timer visible as it in itself can become distracting and in some cases install concern to users that something might happen if they stand still and happen to see it counting down. However for those situations where you need to see the timer you can select to have either the words or the timer to show. The words are the default out the box.
Manual Override Timer
Manual Override Timer
The Manual Override timer is simply that. It overrides the Auto Shut Off timer and allows the user to cook for times longer than the Auto Shut Off timer allows. If you are cooking a roast for 90 minutes you do not want to have to come back into the kitchen every 5 minutes and that is when this timer is used. It can be set up to 4 hours maximum and after it times out it will reset the iGuardStove into it’s Auto mode.
Simply push the screen button named Manual and the timer will appear. It displays at 30 minutes and you can use the Up/Down arrows to set your required time.
The Default Timer that the timer appears is 30 minutes. This is looked at as a convenience or favourite time and is adjustable. If the user likes to do a roast every Sunday and it takes 88 minutes instead of having the timer start at 30 minutes and then scroll up to 88 minutes you can set the favourite time to simply be 88 minutes. That way when they turn on the override timer it immediately say 88 minutes.
*The sample below has your Maximum set to 2 hours and the Favourite set to 50 minutes
The Child Safe feature is a second level of protection that is fully customizable.
There are 2 ways that the iGuardStove operates. The first (Initiating) is how you first turn the stove on and the second (Resuming) is how the iGuardStove turns the stove back on when you return to the kitchen.
The easiest is to have both the initiate and resume settings set to Automatic so no buttons need to be pushed on the iGuardStove control panel.
When activated the Child Safe setting will not allow the turning of the stove knob to energize the stove. The Child Safe setting requires the additional step of pushing a confirmation button on the control panel to confirm, that YES in fact, you do want the stove to turn on. This is also the case when the user returns to the kitchen the stove will NOT automatically resume cooking until the Reset button is pushed. The onscreen display will state this too remind the user what to do.
You can also set it up so that it has Child Safe to Initiate cooking BUT still automatically resume upon seeing someone return or vice-versa. The choice is up to you.
With this 2 step procedure small children cannot turn on the stove by just turning the stove knob. It is also helpful for people who have developed tics and such whereby they like turning knobs and flipping switches.
Late Night Lock
Late Night Lock
The Late Night Lock Out allows you to disable the stove during certain hours of certain days. This is easily done by selecting the days of the week that you wish this feature to operate and then select the times.
This is great to prevent someone from putting a pot of soup on at 3am and then falling back to sleep and thereby putting the home in jeopardy.
There is also a local lock out that does not require any internet settings. It can simply be activated by pressing and holding the centre button for 5 seconds until the screen changes and says “Local Lock Out“. You can release the lock out by simply pressing and holding the button for another 5 seconds. This will allow you to quickly lock out the stove while you have to leave the area and do not want the stove to be active. This is not an internet feature but we want you to know of its existence.
