Automatic shut-off for propane kitchen stove?

My wife and I live in rural Maine. Our kitchen stove burns propane. We are looking for an automatic shut-off device that works with propane, that will turn off burners if left unattended for a set period of time or in the absence of ambient motion. We are getting to an age where "forgetfulness" is increasingly an issue. Searching the internet, we have found a couple of devices, like Stove Guard, which work with electric appliances, but not propane. Thank you for your help.

I found this...

Amazon.com: Fire Magic Automatic 3 Hour Timer Gas Safety Shut-off Valve 3090: Patio, Lawn & Garden


This one does less time and may be better.



Firemagic 3092 Replacement One Hour Automatic Timer Safety Shut Off Valve

You would probably need to have it installed so its conveniently accesable.

Thank you.

Both of those refer to gas but both mention "barbecue safety" suggesting they probably work on propane, too. I guess what I'm wondering is, is there any reason a device like this which works on gas would not also work on propane?

If you read the product description it states gas or propane.
