    Very good active monitor for radon, has added temp and humidity. Can trend data readings for up to one year using their app. This long term data is essential to determine what these parameters do over time. I calibrated against other monitors and methods (passive) and readings were accutate. Comes with batteries and seems to last many monthso far still at 90%. Bluetooth connectivity locally, I do not think you can access these monitors remotely, even with a subscription. Besides not bieng accessible remotely, these are worth the extra cost, reliable and work as they should. Did I mention data logs the past year.

    The Airthings Wave Plus is a smart indoor air quality and radon monitor that combined with an app on your phone can provide realtime and historical data on your indoor air quality. As radon levels can very overtime, it is great to have a long term monitoring device. The device, for better or worse, looks reminiscent of a small smoke detector minus any buttons or the ability to alert you to carbon monoxide. Of course the Wave Plus is not meant to replace your smoke/CO alarms but rather supplement them by monitoring your air for harmful radon as well as carbon dioxide and VOCs. The Wave Plus also provides humidity, temperature, and pressure values which combine with the radon, VOC, and CO2 measurements to effect your overall air quality score of good, fair, or poor; which is then displayed as a motion activated color ring of green, yellow, and red respectively. Though an Airthings account was required to setup the device, the process was a breeze and the Wave Plus connected via bluetooth in a snap. The app is clean and straightforward, displaying realtime values that correlate with the device’s LED color. You can view historic data, though you have to view the the “web dashboard” within the app for 12 hour or specified time frames. I hope they can incorporate the data into the app better without having to change dashboards, as currently it feels redundant. While I was interested in determining our Radon levels in our home, thanks to the Wave Plus I am now aware of the elevated CO2 that accumulates in our home. I was surprised to find that in the first 48 hours I had only fair air quality due to indoor humidity and slightly elevated CO2 levels. Fortunately, my radon levels are low which is what I had anticipated but it is good to have confirmation. After the sensors calibrated for a week my quality has been mostly good apart from on occasion you light a candle or when the coastal humidity overcomes my air conditioner’s ability to keep the humidity levels below 60%. Overall I like that the Airthings Wave Plus provides peace of mind knowing what your radon levels are as well as monitoring your air for other potential harmful contaminants. It also has been a nice reminder that, weather permitting, it may be good idea to open the windows to let in some fresh air and ventilate your home!

    Perfect Smart Home Air Monitor

    This thing has to be one of the most simple, smart home items I've ever set up and used. My wife and I have discussed how we wanted to see more about the air quality in our home. Our youngest daughter has asthma, so we started taking a hard look at the air quality inside our house to help keep her breathing in check. I wanted something that I could easily add to our current smart home set up as well, because I wanted to see more than just a current status. I wanted to see trends, get alerts, those sorts of things. The Airthings Wave delivered everything I wanted in a smart home, air quality monitoring device. Out of the box, this thing is about the same size and circumference of a standard in-home smoke detector. The back of the device is held on with a magnetic connection, so there's no unscrewing the device when it's time to change the battery. You literally can just pop if off the wall. There's a single screw in the box that you can use to mount the magnetic plate to a wall, or you can do what we did and just place it on our mantle. The instructions that come with the device actually give you ideas about where to mount the device to get the most honest read. You'll need to download the Airthing's app in order to set the device up. Even though I was able to get it synced with my smart home set up, I was surprised to see that the app relied on a Bluetooth connection between the phone and monitor to sync results. Out of the box, the Airthings Wave Plus works with Amazon's Alexa and Google Home. There is not an official, first-party support from Airthings for Apple's HomeKit - but if you search the web, you can find some HomeBridge alternatives if you're a HomeKit user. Here are the different metrics this Wave Plus monitors: - Radon levels - VOC (Airborne chemicals) - CO2 (Carbon dioxide) - Humidity - Temperature - Air Pressure Once the device is set up, the app does inform you that it takes 7 days for the device to calibrate itself to its environment. It'll still keep track of the current statuses of the items I listed above, but YMMV. The app is actually not irritating bloatware like some partner app devices require. Inside the app, you can also see trend performance for each of the metrics above in the last 48 hours, week, month, and year. So far, it's been interesting. We noticed that the CO2 levels go up when we have our gas fire place turned on. Not enough to cause any alarm, but still good to know. The radon detection capability appears to the what Airthings believe will be a bill draw for the Wave Plus. Another nifty feature is if you wave your hand in front of the device, there's an LED light that will let you know in a single glance the overall quality of the air. Green is good, so that's what you want to see. All in all, we've been really happy with the amount of information and insight the Wave Plus has given us about the quality of the air in our home.

    Setup for the AirThings Wave Plus was easy. As instructed, I downloaded the app and created an account on the AirThings web site. Then I pulled the tab that isolated one battery terminal for storage and shipping. The device started up and I waited for it to stabilize. Once it appeared to be ready, I followed the instructions for adding the device to the app on my phone. That was easy. The device then needs to go through a 7 day calibration period for several of the sensors, so I placed in on my table and left it there. I was a little concerned at the beginning of the calibration period, when the device reported an elevated radon level. We had done a radon test a few years ago and did not have a problem. Every once in a while I’d wave my hand over the device and it would display yellow (at first) then later red….and after two days…it happily (for me) displayed green. Reported radon level kept dropping over the first few days. I’m still early in the calibration phase, but I’m optimistic about having this device as a long term member of my collection of IoT devices that I use to monitor and control my homes. I’m not sure if I will use the IFTTT integration offered by this device. I do use IFTTT with some of my other devices, so it is possible I’ll think of something I want to link with this. If it works out, I may use this device in a few difficult locations that I monitor. If the radon monitor is reliable over the long term, that is particularly interspersed to me. Update: I’m in day 7 of the calibration phase and radon is once again reporting as slightly elevated and air quality is “RED” as a result. I plan to buy a radon test kit and compare the reading on the kit to the AirThings Wave. If they are similar, I’ll be ordering radon remediation! Fortunately, the pipe was installed when the house was built, so it should be easy to add the fan. I’m assuming the radon reading is correct at this point, so I didn’t take away any stars. If it turns out to not be correct, I would, of course, be less enthusiastic. Time will tell.

    Pros Battery power allows multiple mounting options Looks like a smoke detector and blends in Also measures Radon to overall air quality measurements Cons Alerts are slow to pop up on phone Alerts are not consistent Often doesn’t tell you when conditions improve Only alerts your phone if it is nearby Questionable accuracy of measurements App only shows 48 hour average and not live stats Design The design is understated looking much like a smoke detector. A backplate is mounted to the wall with one screw and the Wave Plus attaches to the baseplate via magnets. There is a hidden led ring in the center of the Wave Plus that is used to indicate air quality. Setup and Performance Setup is straightforward. You just install the app on your phone and then pull the battery tab. Within seconds it shows up in the app ready to pair with your account The instructions tell you that some sensors take up to 7 days to calibrate and Radon takes 30 days. Once the initial calibration is done you are sent an email saying the Wave Plus is ready to monitor your air quality. You can pair multiple devices with your app if you wish to have units in multiple rooms. Connection is via Bluetooth LE which requires your phone to be nearby unless you opt to purchase the hub. Adding the Airthings hub connects your Wave Plus to Wi-Fi and allows remote continuous monitoring of air conditions. To check air quality, you can wave your hand in front of the Wave Plus. The LED ring in the middle lights up with the corresponding color matching the air quality with green being good, yellow being acceptable, and red being poor. Any specifics of what is wrong with the air quality is indicated in the app. According to the instructions your phone should be alerted to changes in air quality so long as you are in Bluetooth range. In practice, the Wave Plus only alerted for high CO2 twice over 7 days. For comparison, the actual CO2 was highly elevated each day due to the house being tightly sealed. Opening the windows to air out the house would lower CO2 but the Airthings Plus largely remained silent until you opened the app. Further verification showed the Airthings app had the proper permissions to notify but unfortunately in all but two cases failed to notify. In the cases where it did notify, the alert was much later then when elevated CO2 levels were measured. In one case the CO2 levels were measured at over 1700ppm but the Wave Plus didn’t alert for nearly and hour and by that time levels were up to near 2000ppm. This should be a matter of a software fix, but at the time of writing alerts are unreliable. You can check the current air quality any time via the app or waving your hand in from the device, but this takes away the convenience and security of having the Wave Plus alert you automatically. Strangely, if you look at the specific air quality measurement, such as CO2, the panel that shows the level only show the 48-hour average and not the current level. Another point of concern is the accuracy of measurements. Generally, the measurements for temperature and humidity were close to measurements from other devices or at least close enough to not cause concern. One metric never matched readings from other devices and that was air pressure. Some of our family experience low pressure induced headaches. When we see the pressure drop below 1015 they take preventative action with medicine to delay the progression of the headache to prevent it from becoming a migraine. During the past 7 days, the Wave Plus has never measured the pressure above 999 when the official measurement from local weather stations reports showed no lower than 1009. This could potentially be explained if the windows were closed but during this time the windows were open so pressure inside the house would be the same as outside. On average, the Wave Plus has reported barometric pressure 20mbars lower than actual with a low of 988mbar with the actual lowest being 1009. Not would this indicate a severe storm entering our area, but pressure so low would have caused our more sensitive family members to be bed ridden with severe migraines. Final Thoughts While the concept of the Wave Plus is nice, at the time of writing this review it feels unfinished. Considering the importance of monitoring air quality and not relying on people to check for themselves, including the hub in the kit or integrating Wi-Fi would have made more sense. Even without this, if the app and Bluetooth were reliable this could be overlooked. Hopefully Airthings will continue to refine the software to improve accuracy of measurements and reliability of alerts. However, as it stands neither of these are the case making it hard to recommend the Airthings Wave Plus in its current state.

    Totally unreliable. Left it out on deck and it's still displaying 6.4 for Radon level which is definitely wrong for outside house. Even temperature displayed is wrong. It's displaying 54 degrees when actual temperature is below 40 degrees.

      Hi RD97,

      The radon values are a rolling 24/h average which is updated hourly. If you place it outside (which it should never be placed outdoors, it is designed for indoor use only) it would take multiple hours before you would see the rolling 24/hour average drop. The temperature values are updated every five minutes so if you simply placed it outside for a short amount of time the temperature would drop over the next 10-15 minutes.

      If there is anything we can assist with further, please connect with us at support@airthings.com.

    Smart Indoor Air Quality Sensors

    I have been using air purifiers over the last couple of years in an effort to improve air quality and minimize the amount of germs floating around. The main thing I was missing was a device that would give detailed readings of key air quality measurements. That’s where the Airthings - Wave Plus Smart Indoor Air Quality Monitor with Radon Detection comes in. It gives me visibility into six air quality factors - radon, carbon dioxide (CO2), airborne chemicals and/or odors (TVOCs), humidity, temperature and air pressure. Once you download and install the Airthings App on your iOS or Android device, it will take you through all the installation steps. The Wave Plus comes with 2 AA batteries pre-installed, just pull the protective tab out and follow the installation instructions provided by the App. Once discovered and connected via Bluetooth, it will go through an update process that takes several minutes to complete. You’ll have to create an Airthings account to be able to use the App and the Web Dashboard that gives you historical charts of all the readings by 12h, 48h, week, month, year or custom time frame. The unit is about the size and look of a smoke detector and can be installed on the wall or ceiling with the easy to use magnetic mount, or just on a flat, tabletop surface. If you just want to get a quick air quality status, you can wave your hand over the top of the unit and the middle will light up green for good, yellow for fair and red for bad air quality. In my case it lit red at first because of high CO2 readings. Don’t panic though, it is clearly stated that it will take 7-days for the sensors to be fully calibrated to their surroundings. I didn’t realize how much CO2 will rise overnight with 2 people sleeping in a bedroom that’s about 16’x13’. It went from around 500 ppm to just about 1,100 ppm in less than 8 hours. Once I opened the windows in the morning, the CO2 levels went back down in a couple of hours in the unoccupied bedroom. It’s nice the device is portable, so I plan to move to other rooms in the house to measure air quality over time. On the flip side, it’s only bluetooth, so you have to be relatively close and run the App to get an update. It would be nice if it also had Wi-Fi, so you can get your readings and alerts from anywhere and get it to sync with the App on a regular basis. It’s understandable Wi-Fi would drain the 2 AA batteries more quickly, but if you could plug it in to power like smart speakers, and make Wi-Fi optional you can toggle on and off, that would be the perfect device and would get 5 stars.

    Air Quality Monitoring Has Never Been So Cool!

    This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.

    I’ve been eyeing the Airthings brand for radon detection for a while and got excited when they released the Wave Plus. This all-in-one device monitors just about every aspect of air quality you can think of, aside from pollen. Could this work? Will the Airthings Wave Plus reveal my air’s inner secrets? Stick around and find out. I’ll tell you my overall impressions first in case you don’t feel like reading the whole review. Overall Impressions: Well, the Airthings Wave Plus told me more about my air than I probably wanted to know. I now know that I probably need to mitigate the radon situation in my house, but that otherwise, the air in my house is pretty healthy. How do I know all that? Well, because the Airthings app presents everything in a pretty slick way and pairs up with the device via Bluetooth to sync all the stats you’ll want to know about. The Airthings is an excellent addition for people that are curious about their air quality. The Wave Plus will measure and monitor radon, VOCs, CO2, Humidity, and the temperature wherever you place it. Running on 2 AA batteries means it can go anywhere you’d like, but be sure to tell the app where you’re placing it. Calibration takes a week, but the app will guide you through all of this. The ability to wave your hand in front of the unit to get a quick color readout of your air quality is also a nice feature. This is a pretty cool piece of technology and the app ties it all together in a very functional way. Build Quality/Aesthetics: The Wave Plus is a minuscule device that can be placed anywhere due to it being powered by batteries. I received the unit in matte white and it blends into my decor just fine. The device can also be hung on a wall, but I opted for the tabletop installation. Setup/Ease of Use: The Wave Plus comes with a guided installation via the Airthings app. After downloading the app on my iPhone I was told what to do and when to do it. In about 10 minutes I had the unit up and running in my living room and syncing with my phone via Bluetooth. Radon readings take a couple of hours to register, but all the other measurements and monitoring started right away. The app will advise you that 7 days are needed for a full calibration in a new location and your readings may not be accurate until the Wave Plus is calibrated. Final Thoughts: The Airthings Wave Plus is a very cool air-monitoring device and I’m in love with monitoring the air quality in my home whenever I want. I just hit the 7-day calibration mark and hope to see Airthings continue to support the product with firmware updates and more app features in the future. The omission of WiFi is disappointing and limits the device to local monitoring via Bluetooth, but is understandable due to the device being powered by 2 AA batteries. If you want to know about your air quality and love technology, the Airthings Wave Plus is made for you.

    What is there to say about the Airthings - Wave Plus Indoor Air Quality Monitor? It will not be the coolest gadget you may ever get, and you probably will not get high fives from your buddies for getting such a cool piece of tech. What it WILL do for you though is give you a great picture of the quality of the air in your home and warn you of dangerously high levels. Right out of the box, the setup is super easy and you can get some basic information right away. For the important stuff like the Radon and Volatile Organic Compounds, the Wave Plus will need 7 days to calibrate itself to your environment. Airthings even sends out nice reminder emails on how to interpret your data and also when your Wave Plus has finished its calibration. My Wave Plus showed up the day after I had all new furniture delivered for my living room and was calibrated by the time I had some new flooring put in a week later (that was supposed to happen the other way around but what are you going to do?). You can see from the screenshots that I've posted that there were big jumps in VOCs at both times. From what I can tell, the data seems to be very solid and matches with less than a 1% variance from the sensors suite in my Dyson air filter. Now I have good data for both upstairs and down and can make adjustments depending on the quality of the air and where everyone is hanging out. Like I said, not a glamorous device but provides some nice piece of mind especially after years of lockdown in the house. I've taken a little more care in monitoring and improving the quality of the air in my home after having spent WAY too much time just hanging around here. If you have concerns about radon and composition of the air you breathe in around your home, you can't ask for a better monitoring tool than the Airthings Wave Plus. It gets the job done, is unobtrusive, and is super easy to manage via the app.

    This unit lets you know your radon, VOC, CO2, Humidity, temp as well as pressure levels. It does all this in a way that is easy to understand with each item having a “info” button that explains in more detail what your level(s) mean. I found this all very helpful and recommend the unit. Its small light-weight circular shape makes it easy to move around or mount on a wall. Setting up was as easy as taking it out of the box and removing the battery slicker. I downloaded the app and using Bluetooth it synched very quickly – creating account as part of this process. While you get up to date info when synched they suggest waiting a week before crunching the numbers to allow for more accurate aggregate information. You can also review the information thru the web – which is much easier to view than on phone. By moving your hand over the unit it provides a general reading with color ring glowing green, orange, red. It is easily moved from room to room but again it suggests waiting a week for more accurate information. What I found interesting was the CO2 levels in our family room. Room is fairly large and has 12-foot ceiling and is open along one wall to kitchen. Levels went up almost to red when we had 4 adults and 2 grandkids in it. It made me wonder what levels we experienced growing up in our basement(s) and tiny rooms? Also, after setting up account, I received email(s) welcoming me and asking if I had any questions. I also receive periodic email updates providing more info as to what numbers mean, etc. Would be nice to have wi-fi connection but that would probably require an additional power option/supply. It does take 2 AA batteries to power. 1-year warranty but I noticed on website if registered within 30 days it extends to 5 years. Overall, a nicely designed unit helped by its interface.

    I've recently acquired an AirThings Wave Plus monitor for my home. This sophisticated device monitors indoor air quality with 6 sensors: Carbon Dioxide, humidity, temperature, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and pressure. I like to think I have good quality air in my home (built in 2008), but according to the device, it is quite poor! My house is a standard Minnesota 2 story home built in 2008. I have a radon mitigation system with a continuously running fan drawing air from under the home slab and expelling it out the roof. I also have an Air Exchanger running on the return side of my gas furnace. Currently set to exchange 60% of of inside air (transferring heat from the exiting inside air to the incoming fresh air) and then it passes through the furnace for additional heating/cooling and distributes it throughout my house. So, I was quite surprised to see my elevated radon reading as well as high CO2 levels. Granted that I'm only 7 days into using the device and it needs time - even over a month to calibrate - I'm still a bit concerned to see these readings. Temperature, pressure and humidity reading seem about right - so I can't say that the device in malfunctioning. To that end, I have access to a digital radon meter that I plan to use to compare readings. Currently, I have the device placed horizontal in my office since that is where I spend most of the day. in a few weeks, I'll move it to a bedroom and compare results there too. After that is the basement. Overall - this was an easy setup, app download and place the device - so anyone can do it. If you're concerned about your air quality in your home - this is a convenient way to capture some data and take action if needed. See attached pictures of the app and my somewhat scary readings. Giving 5 stars for now for the ease of use and access to data. I'll edit this review if I find the radon numbers to be inaccurate.

    Bluetooth ready, app (ios/android), Window browser compatible (Chrome Preferred), and stand-alone visual usage as well as Portable! comes with 2xAA Batteries.. Excellent Design, magnetic cover over battery compartment allows easy access. Motion detector and large lights provides a simple alert method for casual use. Portable means different locations and travel destinations can be assessed for air quality. What’s there not to like, and pleasing to the eyes. Observation can alert people to air quality issues, the app (support Modules available on all environments mentions) can provide reasonable Averages on CO2 Levels, Humidity, Odd Chemical Particulate Levels VOC, Air Pressure, Temperature, battery charge, and radon levels. The app can transport this online to a central database to compare relative air quality in your general region and specific home areas can be programmed separately to move unit from room to room and father home regional data as well Visual Appeal is not to be understated. The app expands it to generation NOW but its simple, well written and designed with detailed yet not overwhelming, I’ve not been able to set notification Alerts at levels I Desire but recommended notifications can be activated within the app. Customer service for this app is a peach, it’s both passive and active, when issues rose in installs on an old galaxy tab and edge browser they were promptly and passively fixed, a chat feature allows immediate help also many screens are linked to educational information you can review at your fingertip on the meanings of the results you get. I am impressed by this device and can see it expand into the ultimate clean air device in the market, and maybe in every ones home environment. It’s a simple design that is Plug and Play for EVERYONE, my aged mom and/or other elders can easily open the back MAGNETIC plated closure and yank the plastic battery protector, place it somewhere and start SEEING results in a comfortable circular light that goes on using an exception motion detector that doesn’t go off on distant simple motion but rather when motion is detected a foot from the device. A wall mount hole in the magnetic plate cover so you can either move it from room to room, hang it on walls or furniture surfaces and even give it a more permanent home. Setup is easy, you can keep track of a running log of air quality in an app android and IOS, online internet dashboard and even a Galaxy a6 Tablet, the later requiring some tweaks that Customer service makes upon

    The product itself works well and does its job. I purchased these mainly to review CO2 and VOC levels in our home. After a week of calibration, I was able to see how our homes fresh air intake helped negate CO2, but also that we may need to increase the amount of ventilation in the house. If I turned off fresh air ventilation, then CO2 levels would rise by 400ppb or more inside the home within 4 or 5 hours. This is with 4 people in the home. It was nice to confirm that VOC levels in our home were low. After re-painting the house with what was claimed to be "low VOC" paint, adding new carpet, cleaning, cooking, etc... it's nice to see that we don't have high VOC levels. These were also a great way to monitor humidity in specific parts of the house. While my T-Stat has wireless sensors that also monitor humidity, they seem to be anywhere from 5-8% higher than the actual humidity. The Airthings sensors helped establish a baseline for more accurate humidity ratings in the rooms I placed them in. I paired a few of these sensors with the Airthings Hub for Wave devices. This allows for viewing the data on your phone or web from anywhere without the need to be in bluetooth range. They also function locally over bluetooth if you choose not to get the hub.

    Provides consistent air quality readings. Purchased this to monitor for radon. Although it is a little pricey, well worth the investment.

    To have the ability to clearly see levels of CO2, humidity, temperature, VOCs, air pressure, and radon is every nerdy home owners dream tool. I took it out of the box and it is the size of a smoke detector, not as chunky. It was easy to install the base with once screw and the device is held onto the base with a strong magnet. They include 4 AA batteries which is nice and they claim 1.5 years of use out of them. The Airthings app is easy to use. I like that it uses Bluetooth to sync to your phone. The downside is that it is limited to that sync. I wish it had Samsung Smart Things integration to be able to completely setup the device within the rest of my smart home eco system. So, to this I say it is smart but not yet fully capable of being a full fledged smart device product. It's called the Wave plus because you can wave your hand in front of the device and a light will tell you by color if what your air quality is like. It color codes it red, yellow, and green. Within the app, I was sent a notification from the web dashboard that I was able to register my device and get 5 years extended warranty. They have a nice UI for web support that mentions you can start a conversation with an Airthings rep and get a response within a day. You can also find things like support and user manuals, Q&A stuff. I do enjoy looking at the bigger picture from the web dashboard.

    Awesome but overpricedIf you could get this for Less $200 Great buy. The application that is used to monitor needs better statistics and times Intervals that are less than 48 hours apart makes it hard to fix situations in your home when you’re guessing in a two day window printable reports would be awesome. I loved it I would buy more and set them up in every room but price is the big issue it also has no subscription fees
