“Auto-Off” Candle?

According to the US Fire Administration, $390 million dollars is lost every year to home fires started by unattended or unsupervised candles. The Candlewatch just might prevent such fires.

The Candlewatch is the brain child of Ohio resident Greg Hart. The device is an automatic candle snuffer that pops on the top of any jar-type candle. Set the built-in timer and the lid closes to extinguish the flame. Clever, huh?

The Candlewatch is available through CakeCandle.com for $24.99 a peice or $29.99 for the gift set, which includes the auto-snuffer and jar candle.
