About this project
Inirv React is the first device that lets you control your stove from your smartphone and helps to protect you and your loved ones from the devastating effects of house fires. Its combination of sensors and electronics enable it to not only detect high levels of smoke, natural gas, and lack of motion (or, you in the kitchen), but also react and turn your stove off to keep you safe.
It also allows you to monitor your stove remotely and modulate the burner temperature. With Inirv React, you never have to worry about leaving your stove on again!
All of our homes have smoke detectors that detect high levels of smoke and warn us if there is a hazard. However, they don’t intervene and prevent the situation from getting worse. We knew a better solution was needed so we designed a revolutionary product that not only prevents hazardous situations but reacts to prevent them from escalating.
Inirv React provides you with peace of mind knowing that your home, family and belongings are safe, no matter what you’re whipping up in your kitchen.
There is a lot of technology that goes into our small, but mighty, device. Learn how Inirv React keeps your home safe!
The sensor unit houses the gas, smoke and motion detectors that monitor your kitchen’s environment. If it senses high levels of smoke or gas, or if the motion sensor recognizes that the stove was left on accidentally, this unit signals the knob units via Bluetooth technology to turn off your burners.
The knob units turn your burners off when a hazard is detected by the sensor unit. Attach these units to your stove and use them as your new knobs, or simply attach your existing knobs back onto these units with the supplied adapter.
The smartphone app allows you to easily monitor your kitchen environment and status of your stove. You will also receive real-time alerts if a hazard is detected or if you left the house with your stove on. But you don’t just get alerts! You can turn your stove off or change the temperature right from your phone!
Once in place, Inirv React not only recognizes dangerous situations, but also reacts to them by turning your burners off to keep you and your home safe.
Inirv React is equipped with a motion sensor and timer that identify and react to periods of prolonged absence. A default timer setting of 15 minutes is automatically set when you turn your stove on. So, what does this mean? After 15 minutes of no activity in your kitchen with the stove left on, the timer will expire and the knob unit will activate to turn your burner off. To prevent the timer from expiring and your stove from turning off, just check on it every 15 minutes. Each time you enter your kitchen and the sensor unit detects motion, the timer is reset. Need to adjust the timer? Simply tap the touch sensor to cycle through the settings. There are 4 to choose from for maximum flexibility! You can also set each knob unit to have a different timer setting.
Made with safe, high quality materials to ensure durability, Inirv React is sure to help keep you and your family safe from harmful conditions for years to come. It is also heat, chemical, and water resistant, so don’t worry about what you spill on it!
With its universal stove adapter, Inirv React works on any gas or electric stove. Even better, it doesn’t require professional installation! You can install it yourself in just a few minutes and know your home is protected.
We want Inirv React to look great in your home! Choose from our white, black or stainless steel color options to match the decor of your kitchen when we send out a survey at the end of the campaign.
Use your stove like you normally do! As soon as you turn it on, Inirv React automatically activates and monitors your kitchen for dangerous conditions. The bright blue glow of the LED rings on the sensor and knob units indicate that you and your home are protected.
You rely on your smartphone for everything else, why not use it to check on your kitchen? The smartphone app will allow you to monitor the environment of your kitchen and receive alerts in real-time even if you are miles away from home. Even more, you can turn off your stove and change the temperature of your burners right from your phone - no need to rush home!
Installation is easy and requires just a few minutes.
Inirv React comes as a kit with 4 knob units and 1 sensor unit. If you have more than 4 burners, add additional knob units to provide complete protection. Each sensor unit can pair with up to 8 knob units.
The best products are those that are born from personal experience and have the potential to improve the lives of others. Our inspiration came from a situation I bet most if not all of you have faced before. One night, my mom and I went for a late night movie after dinner. We were running late as usual and quickly scrambled to get out of the door. A few minutes into the movie, my mom suddenly gripped my arm and almost shouted, “I can’t remember if I turned the stove off!” With my puppy at home (not to mention townhomes on either side), I knew we had to rush back as soon as possible. We practically ran out of the theater and got home only to open the door to thick black smoke. While we were fortunate to return before a fire started, we were still faced with thousands of dollars in smoke damage. After some research, we knew a solution was needed to combat the tens of thousands of house fires that occur every year due to cooking equipment. We not only realized that stoves today don’t have any safety features, but also that smoke detectors only serve as an alarm and don’t intervene when a hazard arises. Because of this, we created Inirv React.
As we started development, we realized that this device could not only make homes safer, but smarter too! Through Inirv React, we hope to revolutionize the way you interact with your stove while providing you the peace of mind we know you deserve.
- Akshita, Cofounder
Inirv React has undergone numerous rounds of prototyping and we have finalized the device design. We have come a long way and have worked hard to make the device as small and attractive as possible. In the coming months we will start device testing, acquire certifications, conduct in-home tests, begin tooling, and develop a beta version of the Inirv app for iOS and Android.
Our mission is to get Inirv React into every home and onto every stove so that we can help to keep you and your loved ones safe. Your pledge will help us achieve this, and allow us to not only complete development and manufacturing of our revolutionary device, but also continue our work towards creating products that make your home smarter and safer. We are ready to make Inirv React a reality and can’t wait to get it into your home - now all we need is you!
Here at Inirv, we are passionate about creating novel solutions to problems that affect your safety and well-being every day. Our vision is to make your home smarter and safer so that you have the peace of mind you deserve. Our team not only has previous startup experience, but is also comprised of talented and passionate engineers. We've partnered with a top engineering firm, Enventys Partners, that has brought an experienced group of engineers, industrial designers, and manufacturing experts to help us make Inirv React a reality.

We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make Inirv React a success.
We’ve set out to design a product that not only improves home safety, but also enhances your cooking experience like never before. You’re helping us achieve that goal! We know not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, so even if you can’t purchase your own Inirv React, you can help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of!
Risks and challenges
As with any technology project, there are always risks associated with manufacturing and supply chain logistics. However our team has extensive experience with developing hardware products which will allow us to avoid any possible pitfalls. Also due to our careful planning, we feel the risks are very low when it comes to meeting our shipping date of December 2017. We will be sure to provide regular updates and if anything does happen to come up during our journey, our backers will be the first to know!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
