Preventing Unattended Cooking Fires
Ovens and stovetops are two of the most dangerous appliances in any household. If these items are left unattended and start a fire, the flames can spread very quickly. CookStop™ is a fantastic fire prevention device that stops a fire even before it starts.

Managers, administrators, and maintenance and facility directors all share the common concern of unattended cooking fires. In a multi-family facility, a single person's accidental negligence can endanger many other lives — not to mention incur significant costs. Frequently, the maintenance personnel are the ones who know from experience just who may be at risk. You might have smelled something burning in part of the building or put out a fire in a certain tenant's apartment several times. Even if it's just a smoke out, the people in your building may be put in danger.
Not only is there a risk of an outright fire spreading to adjoining apartments, but the water damage from sprinklers can add up fast — running down from floor to floor to floor. The disruption to other tenants can last for months. They must move while their units are re-carpeted due to water damage or repainted due to smoke damage. Your brand recognition suffers too because reoccurring fires can scare away tenants.
CookStop was designed with multi-family facilities in mind. Administrators can implement cooking permissions for different levels of attention spans. These permissions can only be changed with a secure key.
