Students of the Higher College of Technology have launched a state-of-the-art safety device that provides a safe kitchen environment by controlling cooking gas cylinders wirelessly via a smartphone application.

How does it work?

The invention, or ‘Shield’, reminds the user through a mobile app to shut off the valve when not using gas, thus reducing the dangers of any gas leakage. It also sends a warning notification to the user before any blaze may occur. In case of any hazardous leak, the device automatically notifies the Public Authority for Civil Defence and Ambulance. Added benefit is that the device detects the volume of gas inside the cylinder.
