Candle Cradle is a product that ultimately protects house fires caused by candle. When a candle is placed on the Candle Cradle, it detects motions from cats, dogs, or playful children around the candle. An alarm from both Candle Cradle and a smartphone connected via Bluetooth will go off visually and audibly.One of the most common cause of house fires is from pets playing with candles. Many pet owners wouldn’t recognize that their cats or dogs could be potential fire hazards when their pets and the candles share the space.
