Ever forgot to turn the stove or oven off before leaving the house? You’re definitely not alone. In fact, we’d wager most of us have at some point, and a cooking fire occurs every 6 seconds in America. The WallFlower WiFi Stove Monitor that “makes your stove smarter in 5 minutes or less.” It plugs into your power outlet, and in turn, and the stove plugs into it, letting the Wallflower sense when the stove is on or off. It then communicates with you smartphone via the WallFlower app, alerting you whenever the stove is turned on, left on, or turned off. If the stove is on when you and your phone walk out the door, it will automatically alert you, giving you 24/7 peace of mind and control over your stove.
The WallFlower works with just about any stove or oven, with options for both a 4-wire (black) plug and 3-wire (grey) plug. We’d like to see a way to actually shut off the stove if necessary, but cutting the power; but otherwise, it’s a very convenient, handy way to keep your home safe, especially if you have children, or a rental property with tenants. Grab one for yourself and bring your home one-step closer to the smart home of the future.
