Mississauga, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - November 18, 2014) - Pioneering Technology Corporation (TSXV: PTE) (OTC: PTEFF), ("Pioneering"), North America's leader in cooking fire prevention technology announced today that it now has three consumer products available for immediate purchase by the general public at Pioneering's new online store www.pioneeringtech.com/store/. SmartBurner, RangeMinder and Safe-T-sensor are smart state of the art products that help reduce the risk of cooking fires and are now available to everyone for the first time.
"Whether cooking on gas, electric coil, electric glass stove/range tops or with a microwave, Pioneering has a consumer product that can help keep everyone and their homes safe from the risk of cooking fires," said Pioneering CEO Kevin Callahan. "Making SmartBurner, RangeMinder and Safe-T-sensor directly available to homeowners has always been a priority for the Company in order to provide all homeowners with the best possible protection against cooking fires available today."
SmartBurner, RangeMinder and Safe-T-sensor can be easily installed by homeowners and help provide immediate protection from the risk of cooking fires, the leading cause of household fires. According to the National Fire Protection Association, stovetop cooking is the number one cause of household fire in North America (44% of all household fires – up from 20% in 1980) and fire injuries; the second leading cause of household fire deaths; resulting in over 1 billion dollars in direct property damage annually and according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission only 1 in 30 of all cooking fires are ever reported to the fire service.
SmartBurner is based on the same industry recognized and award winning smart temperature limiting control technology (TLC) as Safe-T-element (the original product Pioneering developed for commercial use which currently helps protect more than 100,000 families in multi-residential housing across North America from the dangers of cooking fires - zero cooking fires reported). SmartBurner, the new consumer version, now available to the general public, offers all of the same benefits and can be easily installed by anyone in seconds.
RangeMinder is a smart state-of-the-art, wireless, self-learning technology built directly into the dials that replace the existing knobs on most gas and electric coil and smooth range/stove tops. The RangeMinder helps prevent unattended cooking – the leading cause of stovetop cooking fires. "Cooking should never be left unattended but the statistics clearly show that it happens far too often," said Kevin Callahan. "That's why we created RangeMinder. It's engineered to help remind people they're cooking whenever they forget."
Safe-T-sensor is engineered to help prevent microwave fires and false/nuisance alarms. It is currently having great success in university campus residences and in commercial applications (offices, hospitals, senior's facilities) helping prevent fires and more prominently significantly reducing the number of building evacuations due to false/smoke alarms which create dangerous situations and result in significant costs due to emergency response and/or loss of productivity.
