About

The Airthings Wave 2nd Generation is a smart radon detector providing accurate continuous and long-term results straight to your smartphone. Replacing single-use radon test kits, this digital radon monitor shows daily, weekly, monthly and yearly measurements in the free mobile app. Use the data to protect your home and loved ones from the dangers of radon gas and make sure radon levels stay low. It is battery powered, meaning no AC outlet is required and it can be placed anywhere in the home. The Airthings Wave includes an additional humidity sensor and temperature sensor, allowing you to improve indoor air quality overall. Monitor to ensure healthy indoor humidity levels and a comfortable temperature. Detailed analytics are available in the Airthings app and Web Dashboard or simply wave in front of the device to receive a color-coded visual indicator of the overall air quality; Green (Low), Yellow (Warning), Red (Danger). The radon monitor is also smart home enabled and works with Alexa, Google Assistant and IFTTT (if this then that). The Airthings Wave 2nd generation has the same sensors as the 1st generation, but it includes Smartlink functionality that allows the device to connect to the Airthings Hub.

      Accuracy ... if you’re concerned about it read this.

      I am a retired chemist so I’m concerned about radon emissions. I had absolutely no knowledge of this product or company until I found out that have a lot of radon in my new home. So, I purchased a model 223 a couple weeks ago and am using it to help me understand the situation while I wait for remediation. It’s doing a wonderful job of informing me of ‘hot spots’ and the average level throughout the house while I hold my breath.Now to its accuracy. The Corentium 223 specification is perhaps the most honest approach to accuracy I have ever seen in a consumer product. It’s based on: ‘sigma = less than [a percentage and the length of test]. It is statistical probability specification of accuracy and it is rich in accuracy information. However, you need to do the math, understand what ‘sigma’ means in variance statistics, understand probability distribution curves, and then the use the spec to calculate the worst case accuracy of the device associated with your own radon situation). So, please do that before you criticize the device. If you studied the specification and did the math, as I have, you would see that it is quite accurate for an inexpensive radon continuous monitoring device.... and way more than suitable for home use.Let me repeat that again. If you use the device as instructed by the manufacturer and are willing to trust the specification as determined by some very smart people who spent a lot of time, money and brainpower to prepare it, then you will be measuring Radon and its variability in your home in a way that is vastly superior to doing periodic mail away tests.The radon in your home varies from day to day, month to month, hour to hour. The anecdotal ‘evidence of accuracy’ presented in virtually all of these reviews is absolutely without merit. Why, because determining the accuracy of the device against a standard source is extremely complicated. As a chemist I know that for a fact. We, as customers, do not have the time, money, equipment, or knowledge to do it - period. If you are somehow guessing that you need better accuracy in a shorter period of testing then please consider buying the Corentium pro for $1200 or perhaps some other professional device. You may not get better accuracy but you will likely get equivalent accuracy in a shorter period of time.... that’s how the statistics work. Please read the last two sentences again.Consider this too. The manufacturer, Air Things, is based in Europe and it appears to be a spin off of CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Look up CERN in Wiki. You will be impressed. They are the world’s leading experts on making and measuring radiation. I am impressed because their ‘no calibration necessary’ technology for this device (and their more expensive professional models) seems to be the result of a micro miniaturized, more precise spectroscopic technology for measuring radioactive decay of radon daughters alpha particle emissions.Finally, I’ve read literally hundreds of these Bolo reviews where accuracy is mentioned... and actually is somehow mysteriously determined in the basement of their home. However, I’ve not seen one review that references the manufacturer’s specification. Everyone here that’s comparing ‘this to that’ or ‘that to this’ and making claims about ‘accuracy’ doesn’t have a clue what they are talking about. However, a number of thoughtful reviewers seem to have run side by side tests with other devices or mail away canisters. Assuming those tests were done properly, then they can be considered slightly helpful but otherwise of no use in determining the device’s accuracy.I’m going by the specification. I’m confident in my device and am very relieved that I own one.—- UPDATE: April 28, 2021 I bought a second unit a couple months after purchasing the first, so both are now over two years old. I am very happy with both units. No problems - I lent one out to my daughter for a few months. Now I keep one in the basement and the other on the first floor. I recently replaced the batteries in the first unit (a two year battery life - just like the manufacturer said) and have had no problems at all with either unit.Regarding Accuracy - I am reiterating that the Airthings accuracy specifications (which result from the highly advanced ‘spectroscopic’ technology behind it) are extraordinary for a low priced unit. Don’t believe the misinformation from reviewers here who claim to have determined the ‘accuracy’ of their Airthings unit as bad or good by running some kind of ‘test’. You/ Me / Other Reviewers / cannot in any way determine the accuracy of any type of radon device or test kit on the market - not for any device - not for any manufacturer). Period.The only choice you have for determining the accuracy of any device you buy is to trust the manufacturer, the manufacturer’s statistical process control, and that the manufacturer truly, deeply understands the extremely complex issues in radon measurement. The Airthings company was founded by CERN scientists. CERN is where many of the smartest on this planet create and measure radiation with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). So... I trust the Airthings accuracy specification.So - If you really want to know the accuracy of any type of any radon monitoring detector you purchase (regardless of the manufacturer), here is what I would recommend so as to get decent accuracy results.- identify an analytical laboratory highly specialized and experienced in the many complexities of radon measurement- ensure that it is a laboratory using standards and equipment based on measuring radon in the atomic form(s) in which it is most carcinogenic,- send them your device and have it tested under tightly controlled laboratory conditions for a period of time (that is dependent on the rate at which that particular device model approaches the true radon value).For me, buying two of the Airthings devices was an easy decision once I researched and understood the issues in Radon measurement, and the various devices available.As I said previously, I have no affiliation of any kind with this company, but I do get frustrated when reviewers who have no clue what they are talking about provide horrible misinformation for the rest of us.

      Good overall, seems reliable when compared with charcoal tests

      [Update 2: August 2016]In Feb 2016 I ran another side by side comparison of the Corentium 223 vs the SS (Safety Siren), and this time using two charcoal tests as "controls." All four were placed around the same spot (pictures do not show the charcoal tests but they were right next to the Corentium and SS). The Corentium and the SS were turned on at the same time and allowed to run until the SS started to show a result (due to the SS not showing an initial reading until a couple days after turning it on or resetting it, whereas the Corentium starts showing a reading almost immediately).Once the Corentium and SS were on for a few days I opened both charcoal tests and left them open for 4 days (the longest time allowed by the lab to get legitimate/accurate results). Then I sealed up the charcoal tests and mailed them in and checked the readings of the Corentium and the SS which had now been on for 7-days (the reason for 7 days is that the devices both provide readings at 7 days but other readings are at different time parameters and so not comparable). The results are shown in my pics (3rd-6th pics).Charcoal Test #1: <0.5 pCi/LCharcoal Test #2: <0.6 pCi/LCorentium 223: 0.97 pCi/L ("7 days" reading)Safety Siren: 1.2 pCi/L ("S"=7 days reading)Please note that I bought both the Corentium and the SS in March 2014 and so both were almost 2 years old at this point. I'm not sure the charcoal test results and those of the Corentium and the SS can be compared directly since their readings are over different times (approximate 4 days for the charcoal test vs 7 days for the two devices; I had to do this since the charcoal tests cannot be tested for more then 4 days and the two devices do not show readings at shorter times (e.g. 3 days, etc.).Interpreting the results is not exactly easy or maybe even valid, but it does at least seem to show that the devices are not wildly different than the charcoal readings and more importantly, they seem to read higher rather than lower than the charcoal readings (i.e. they do not give falsely low readings). It also shows that the charcoal tests are very close to each other and therefore probably a reliable test (i.e. repeated testing yields values close in value to each other) and are assumed to be the most accurate way to test radon levels. Another finding is that the SS, which needs re-calibration annually, had higher values compared with the Corentium (which is not supposed to need retitration over the life of the device which is stated as about 10 years). However, when I left the two devices on for a few more days (see the 6th pic) I found that the values became much closer to each other: 0.9 for the SS and 0.94 for the Corentium.Conclusions? I would say that based on my amateur and non-expert tests and interpretation of the results, that both devices are probably reliable and accurate enough to get a decent approximation of the radon levels in your home. The SS, though cheaper than the Corentium, is uglier and needs a wall power adapter whereas the Corentium is smaller, better looking, lasts a long time on batteries, and can be hung on the wall. It also reportedly does not need re-calibration for the 10 year lifespan and so I consider the Corentium to be a superior device and would recommend it over the Safety Siren.[Update 1: March 2015]Sorry to the folks who were waiting to see the results of my side by side comparisons between this device, the Safety Siren, and the charcoal mail in tests. I've attached a photo of both detectors (along with the charcoal test, only did one of those) side by side after both had been sitting there for over a week. As you can see, the Safety Siren is set to short term reading, which I believe is the past 7 days reading, and shows at 1.6 while the Corentium shows 1.64 and is for the past 7 days also. So, based on this test (and I've done this several other times with the same, comparable results) both detectors seem to give similar readings.Of course, the gold standard seems to still be the charcoal, mail in kits and so I've attached a photo of that reading too. Basically, the kit shown in the pick was set out for the required time (48 hours) and mailed in promptly. The reading I got back from the company was 1.7 pCi/L, so pretty close to both detectors. The Safety Siren only goes to one decimal place and so is a bit more limited than the Corentium which goes out to 2 decimal places, but in reality 2 decimal places is probably not very valuable or helpful.So, to summarize, my test did show that the device is pretty accurate compared to a charcoal test and also that the Safety Siren was comparable -- although that device does not run on batteries and apparently needs to be recalibrated on an annual basis or so. The Corentium supposedly does not ever need to be recalibrated which just seems really odd to me. I will repeat these tests periodically and update this review on an annual basis (or until a better detector comes out than either of these!) to see how well the Corentium stands up over the years with regards to calibration need. I have also upgraded my rating to 4-stars.---[Original Review: April 2014]Just want to point out that this radon detector does not wait for a couple days to give an initial radon reading, like some detectors do (like the  Safety Siren Pro Series3 Radon Gas Detector - HS71512 by Family Safety Products, Inc.  does), so basically within a minute or so of turning this device on for the first time (or after resetting), you will start to get initial readings that are predictably around 0.00 pCi/L. Obviously, getting a reading after 10 seconds isn't helpful, and I don't understand why it would give a worthless reading instead of making you wait for the necessary time (typically 2 days with the Safety Siren Pro detector) before giving you a reading.Over the next days/weeks, the reading will often steadily increase for the same reason, making you really question how useful this device is unless you wait at least a week or so. Even then, you're not sure if the 7-day reading is a weighted average -- meaning that those early really low readings would bring the average rating lower than it actually is. When I placed the Safety Siren Pro and the Corentium side by side for about 2 days in my basement near my sump pit, the readings were dramatically different: the Safety Siren gave a 1.7 and the Corentium around 0.56. Over the next couple days (again, the initial readings were after 2 days already), the Corentium reading starting to creep upwards, going from mid-0.5s to around 1.0 and then above, while the Safety Siren Pro stayed fairly steady around 1.7 Another couple days may bring the Corentium to around the reading of the Safety Siren Pro, which would make me feel better that they're both reliable if given enough time.I have ordered some charcoal testing kits (which get sent and read by a lab) to use as a kind of reference testing (supposed to be the best way to test apparently) to see which, if either or both, is accurate in detecting radon levels. I will update this review when it does come back, but preliminary testing with the Corentium leaves me unimpressed, especially for the hefty price tag.

      Very easy to use and accurate

      We live in an area where radon is a common issue in homes. In fact one of our neighbors has had to have an anti-radon system installed in their crawl space as they had levels of 9. I ordered this and used it in our family room and master bedroom. At the same time I ordered free radon tests from the State of Virginia. The Virginia tests were the charcoal packet tests. We submitted the va tests to the state lab and the results came back with the exact same reading we were getting on this device, so I am confident in the accuracy of this home radon detector. Fortunately our readings have been under 1, so we are in the clear. I will keep it on though through the winter as that is the season typically of highest radon readings.

      Not a useful indicator of Radon levels

      This product is not an approved device on the C-NRPP website for measuring Radon in Canada.I bought this device as it seemed to be a great idea, real-time Radon with data logging for as long as you want. I installed my device as per the instructions and allowed it to calibrate for 7-days. I monitored for over 91-days and got a result of 371 Bq/m3 - safe levels in Canada are below 200. This ring on the device glowed red. I tried to use this information to make a Tarion New Home Warranty claim. It was denied as it is not an approved device.I then bought an Alpha Tracker device, did another 91-day test and sent it in for lab testing which showed 71 Bq/m3. I contacted Airthings about this conflicting information. They replied promptly with links to articles explaining why Alpha Trackers are not reliable. When I pressed about C-NRPP approval, I was sent another article on why you cannot compare the values from two different smart Radon Detectors, including the Corenthium Pro model.The information given to the user is largely meaningless, other than the general presence of Radon.If you think you have radon, save your $200 bucks and put it towards an under-slab ventilation fan.If you still want one, I'll be selling mine on eBay.

      Don’t buy inaccurate results

      Reading is not accurate, I compared with other Airthing devices and the readings does not match, this device shows very high reading. I even got it check with a professional who came to do the mitigation, even he told me that the device is not accurate.I tried taking to customer service folks, they shows at first that they are very interested in helping but at the end not really. They didn’t help me at all. I strongly suggest against buying this device.
