Candles have been around for centuries, however nothing has been done to improve the safety of burning.
On average, 21 home candle fires are reported each day in the U.S. (Ahrens, 2020).
These fires caused an annual average of 81 deaths, 677 injuries, and $278M in direct property damage (Ahrens, 2020).
There are other devices used to extinguish a candle, but most are simple rudimentary devices such as very basic candle snuffers that aren’t automatic and require direct human intervention. Our device, AiryFairy, is a safety device intended to protect loved ones along with their valuable home and cherished belongings in the event someone forgets to blow out the candle.
