Innohome is a Finnish company making smart, preventive fire safety products such as Stoveguards and Smart Smoke Alarms. Unattended cooking/stove fires is in many countries the biggest single reason for home fires. In Norway the Stove guards are already mandatory to all new homes. The simple idea behind the two products is to detect a fire hazard, alarm about it and to cut the electricity supply to the stove or other electrical device before a fire can start. Innohome’s latest products, EV chargers for homes, are also tackling a fire safety issue since too many people charge their vehicle directly from a normal socket causing a risk of fire.
