Here’s to Eizeasta, a UAE-based startup that is working on solving daily life pains and offering safety through tech. The company is projecting the launch of their flagship device ‘Ghasmo‘, a gas leak detector with automatic valve shutdown in case of gas leakage. Eizeasta is also recognised by Sharjah government Prevention and Safety Authority and has partnered with them to offer free gas leak inspection campaigns across Sharjah.
Eizeasta – the genesis
It all started with a story, turning the clock back to 2 years, Mahmoud’s family left home in the morning and when they returned afternoon, they turned the light on, and everything went on fire. They soon found that the main gas odometer had a leak due to which the house went on fire. Since that day, Mahmoud and Omar started their hustle to build a device that could help people prevent any dangerous incidents. On similar lines, the co-founder & CEO, Mahmoud explained LAFFAZ,
“Since that time we have worked very hard to build a device that makes us really safe, because any false alarm can terrify us to death! We took about two years till we reached a final version of Ghasmo. We never cared for release time, we cared only what are we really going to release. We sketched, built, tested and restarted numerous times that in fact we never counted.”
Eizeasta is building ‘Ghasmo’, a gas leak/smoke detector alarm that is 20 percent more sensitive, 3 times more accurate, 3 times louder than traditional alarms available in the market. Unlike all other alarms, Ghasmo leverages its ‘ACCUcheck’ technology which depends on a smart processor that analyzes data of the air to make sure there is a real leak before it beeps – thus free from false alarm. The ACCUcheck technology works on data collecting and data analysis basis, whether for the Smoke detector, Carbon monoxide detector or any gas leak detector version of Ghasmo’s gas leak alarm.
Ghasmo also comes with an attachment motor, that can close the gas handle automatically in case of a leak. Ghasmo detects many kinds of gases like Natural gas, cylinder gas & Propane gas of RV cylinders too.
Here’s a sneak peak of Ghasmo for you to learn more about how it works.

Current state & Growth Plans
Eizeasta has recently announced a partnership with Sharjah government Prevention and Safety Authority to conduct free inspection campaigns for buildings across Sharjah, kicking off with 500 homes as a start. The company leveraged the COVID-19 downtime to improve the final production design, tested samples from suppliers, built the first patch of electronic boards and is now projecting the opening of early orders from September.
Eizeasta is also in process to raise seed capital for building manufacturing facilities, hiring resources across functions, and expanding across the UAE and GCC region.
Eizeasta’s proprietary technology ACCUcheck and the way Eizeasta is utilising it is definitely a state of art. Fire safety is something that requires improvement and innovation time and again, especially in today’s age and times like COVID-19, when services are not readily available, people need pre-installed fixes that could prevent danger and solve all small and big safety-related issues, there come innovative startups like Eizeasta and solutions like Ghasmo to save the day.
