  • Never syncs anymore, but customer support was still very responsive Aug 19, 2019

    By Leodavinci0
    It used to sync with my iPhone sporadically but now is syncing much less often. This is after all the updates that repeatedly say the syncing issue is fixed. I have tried restarting the app, restarting my phone, and turning Bluetooth off for 10 seconds and on again. Customer support was very responsive though, this the 3 stars. They spent several emails walking me through troubleshooting. Although it never helped, it still only syncs sporadically and often if I leave it to sit for several minutes, I appreciated their willingness to help.

  • More Important Than You Think. Mar 25, 2019

    By Mattsagotaniphone
    Great device that has given me peace of mind! I’ve used this for a year and half now and it’s been a fantastic way to monitor the radon, humidity and temperature in our basement. I would highly recommend this to everyone! - It’s more important than you think. Radon is a silent killer and undetectable without proper sensors. How I learned about radon: One day my dad was talking to me about radon and the low levels they have at their house. At the time I never heard of radon and after a little research I’ve realized how dangerous it can be. It’s worse then being a smoker depending on the levels. Quickly I asked to borrow his tester. Within 24-48 hours the little white box I plugged into our basement was reading 4.7 pCi/L. Various online sources say anything over 4 pCi/L you should take action and that 2 pCi/L or less is ideal. I don’t believe you can completely eliminate the radioactive gas, but lowering the level as much as possible is key. After more research we ended up replacing the old French drain system and sealing up the walls with vapor barriers in our basement. We also invested in this modern sensor “Wave” to easily be able to monitor and track our levels. When all is said and done, our levels have dramatically decreased down to 1.8 at the highest to .5 at the lowest depending on time of year. I could not be happier with the device and the app. Thank you for creating this wonderful sensor and putting our worries behind us.

    A neighbor in my condo association notified me that he discovered extremely high radon levels while in the process of selling his condo. Concerned, I purchased the Airthings Wave Plus and installed it in the center of my lowest level. The radon level read 0.4 at first but then climbed to nearly 9 within a day. After monitoring for about a month, I noticed that the radon would fluctuate anywhere from about 4 to 8+ with a monthly average of 5.9. I had an active mitigation system installed and later that day, my level had dropped to 0.8 and it has remained there ever since. I’m extremely happy with this product and I’m urging my family, friends and clients to purchase one. It was very simple to set up and I love the different readouts that it gives me. The build quality of the device and app are perfect. It was even a fun unboxing experience similar to opening an Apple or Nest product. I also have a Nest thermostat as well which only tells me the temperature and humidity levels however, both devices read the exact same which leads me to believe that they are extremely accurate. The TVOC and CO2 readouts are helpful as well. Whenever those levels are high, simply opening a few windows to let in fresh air allows them to drop and keeps the air in my home healthy for my family. The color ring indicators on both the device and app are really helpful as well. This device is worth every penny and then some!!!

    I have 4 wave plus units connected to this app and it works great. This app has a chat feature that when you have a problem they will respond to, follow up and fix your problems. Most company that have a chat feature have people who are not employed by the company and only have the ability to answer a question that is easily found online. This app connects to real support people who get you answers and connect with engineers that release bug fix. They just did it for me for a minor issue I had with 1 unit temperature warning red light causing a warning to appear on other units. The bottom line is their units are right in line with professional testing I had done and this company is honest, ethical and put out a very nice product.

    I’m kind of baffled by some of the poor reviews. Maybe old versions had issues. But the App has been flawless for me. I write iOS apps for a living. Keep up the good work. I also just had a Radon mitigation system installed based on this App and unit. I also confirmed the installer installed a way over sized fan for such a small house and not excessive levels of Radon (6.0). I installed a smaller 20 watt fan instead of the 90W and it will save me $150/yr no the fan is not even perceivable any more. I confirmed with this app the levels are still below 1.0 with the smaller fan in the worst locations. I also compared AirThings to another monitor and it agreed. Also consistent with turning mitigation off. Things will vary normally with Radon. That’s why test kits are useless.

    It works well and was helpful to me to fix my radon problem. The only improvement I'd like to see is an automatic Y-axis scale for the humidity chart. The other charts are all automatic but humidity always goes from 0 to 100. My humidity jumped from 29 to 39 last night but you can barely tell thanks to the scale.

    Terrible app. Not doing the sync automatically in the background to alert you of any potential dangers. You have to manually open the app and sync in order to see the last values and then at that moment you will get the notifications. Not very safe for that reason.
  • Not sure I can trust this device Feb 12, 2018

    By iSparta
    Recently bought an old home and wanted an accurate and active radon sensor in the basement to make sure the family is safe. Setting up and syncing the wave to the app was simple enough (minus the annoying required account setup which does nothing to save collected data). Initial results started displaying in about an hour which is great compared to charcoal tests. Levels then fluctuated rather drastically from 2 pCi/L to almost 8 pCi/L and back over the course of about a week. While in the process of getting a professional over to discuss possible radon mitigation needs, the device stopped syncing data with the app. After following Airthings’ trouble shooting guide the device crashed and rebooted while knocking on it to begin Bluetooth pairing. All collected data is now lost. At least I took some screenshots of what I had but there is nothing in the app for an expert to review tomorrow. When trying to identify if an invisible and initially symptomless gas is posing a threat to me, my wife, and the babies I want a bit more confidence in the measurement tool in use. Very possible this was just a glitch, or maybe a defective unit but so far it has not made a great impression and there are other options on the market.
  • Unreliable connectivity Oct 27, 2020

    By gobelin21
    I like having a way to know the radon levels in my basement and the device offers that, but its unreliable connectivity is making me an unsatisfied customer. Even more so since the device results are only really useful when viewed on the app. Since I got the device, Airthings released a few app updates and one firmware update, supposedly aimed at fixing some of these issues, but nothing has changed. Sure, the initial setup is easy and so on, but on a day to day, when I look at the app while right next to the device, it’s always a battle to make it connect to the app. I’ve got many other Bluetooth devices that connect seamlessly via Bluetooth; this one sure isn’t one of them. If all you care is the green/yellow/red ring on the device itself, then go for it; if you care about actual numbers, you’re goi g to be disappointed... at least until Airthings seriously gets onto this core issue. UPDATE: even after firmware updates, connectivity remains an issue. I’d stay away from this product... half the time you’re fighting with it just trying to connect to it.

    Looking at past reviews, it seems like there have been constant issues with the app. When I first received the Wave, it would not pair with my phone. I was frustrated and left it alone for 2 days. Tried again and it finally paired. I’ve had many problems where it won’t sync. Had to: turn phone off and back on or close app or turn Bluetooth off then back on or do full resync, or delete app and reinstall. Recently, it won’t sync at all after trying all those things. I like the charts and being able to average over 48, week, or month. It would be nice if we could select length of time for the average. I’m giving it a little more time before I give up and return for a refund. 2 stars for now.

  • Stops synchronizing and stops collecting data Jan 13, 2019

    By Rennidy
    Set the device up, after 3 days of functioning properly the device stopped synchronizing with the app. After multiple attempts last remedy was to remove battery’s and start over, which cause total loss of data. Worked for 2 days after that and then sensors start to miss data. Device still synchronizes but 4 out of 6 sensors stopped reporting values. Last two sensors stopped 2 days later. I guess need to remove data again and will loose all data again. As is not a useable device.

  • Only works in portrait on iPad!!!! Sep 25, 2019

    By te52402
    I will give any app that only works in portrait a 1 star!!!! iPad Pros with a Smart Keyboard will ALWAYS be landscape. I’ve deleted and installed this app several times. It’s a waste of time. I’m not about to tip my 12.9 inch iPad Pro sideways, just to work with this app. Apple wants to replace laptops (and desktops) with iPads. This apps needs to keep up!!! I should mention that I go down to the basement weekly with my iPhone to sync my radon data. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. You just need to be patient and keep trying. It’s good in theory.

  • Rock solid performance Aug 2, 2020

    By de Schnack
    This has performed flawlessly for about a month. Connectivity is rock solid and works across one floor; sometimes even 2 floors. Updates are near instantaneous (updates immediately upon opening the app). Wishlist: landscape mode on iPad; more detailed timestamps in iOS apps, not just the website, and of course HomeKit support at least for the Hub (so I can keep using my sensors and only need to update the hub). Add this and you got 5 stars. Perhaps a PM sensor in the future?
  • A great device with a wonderful app! Mar 8, 2018

    By Bullfrog529
    Radon? Is something we were told is high in our area. The home inspector said it was borderline. I wanted something that I could monitor on the phone. There market is t flooded with smart devices like web cameras. We are lucky theses guys have done a great job! The app works great and I can look at the results whenever since I usually leave my iPad at home. It was fun to watch the radon drop after I left a basement door open. I look forward to the Wave+
  • Accurate radon readings Apr 11, 2021

    By Ajobaan007
    I’ve done 3 of the mail in tests while my AirThings has been installed. Each time the mail in test and AirThings match very closely. I had a radon mitigation system installed 3 months ago and it very clearly shows in the data. My AirThings makes me feel comfortable the mitigation is working. Readings went from about 10 to between 2-3.
  • Solid app and great product Nov 4, 2020

    By Red 99 Vette
    I bought the Home Kit and was up and running in 20 minutes. The sensors need a week to calibrate because of VOCs from the production process. Also, the radon detector needs a long term sample to get you an accurate result, just like the carbon kits need. The app is solid and pairs with the sensors easily and works as I would expect.

    No issues with syncing. However, it would be useful if the tracer dot on the graphs had a timestamp on it. That way, I could more easily correlate readings to times events, like if someone was in the room for an extended period of time, the dehumidifier/heater was running, or the window was open.
  • Got it working in 10 minutes Oct 18, 2018

    By CurtisFinney
    I just received my Wave+ yesterday. It updated twice and had one error but after force quitting and restarting the app, it started working. It’s been working for about 24 hours now. Radon levels are good, but my TVOC and CO2 are a bit high. Would appreciate some better guidance on acceptable levels. Would also like to understand the accuracy. Just because I have a nice number, doesn’t mean the device measures to that level of accuracy. I think this concept is lost on many people, but it is really important.
  • Feb 2, 2021

    Good app, good devices, but you need to add widgets for home screen on the phone. That would be simple solution for having always visible data if using HUB, not need to open application all the time. Competition is step ahead here.

    By Englishguy1985
    So far I like my Wave Plus, I would like to see some more data in the app, specifically when you click on a selected Air quality parameter it would be helpful to show what an established Normal level should be. I would love to have access to the Radon detecting portion of the device but apparently this will not show until 7 days after activating. I do own a calibration Ludlum Geiger counter with Radon Scale/Ratemeter, and several calibrated check sources so it will be fun seeing if the Wave Plus picks up the Alpha decay.

    Location required!? Really!? Works as should, connect, sync and data graphs, been using it for a couple years now. Had teething issues at first, but mostly ironed out. But! You have to provide your location to sync with your data!? Once initial setup with location is done, why every time you sync!? But of privacy concerns there!?
  • Good device but incompatible with HomeKit Sep 20, 2020

    By ace apertura
    This is probably a useful device for checking air quality. Unfortunately it just is not compatible with Apple HomeKit. Even if you install Airthings separate hub. And even if you try via ITTT it doesn’t really work. Airthings won’t alert you of high levels of bad air so it’s not that useful except checking manually.

    Looking at past reviews, it seems like there have been constant issues with the app. When I first received the Wave, it would not pair with my phone. I was frustrated and left it alone for 2 days. Tried again and it finally paired. I’ve had many problems where it won’t sync. Had to: turn phone off and back on or close app or turn Bluetooth off then back on or do full resync, or delete app and reinstall. Recently, it won’t sync at all after trying all those things. I like the charts and being able to average over 48, week, or month. It would be nice if we could select length of time for the average. I’m giving it a little more time before I give up and return for a refund. 2 stars for now.

    Graphs very poorly designed and uninformative which more or less invalidates the purpose of the device (Wave Mini).

    developer, this app need notifications! So when something gets to high it sends a notification.
  • Consistently Inconsistent (accuracy & precision) Dec 13, 2020

    By Robert-Upp
    Critique is about both the app and devices: CONCLUSION: Accuracy and precision differ...in my experience AirThings offers neither. (Application looks pretty but info isn’t even directionally helpful). CONTEXT: I own an Airthings HomeKit (Wave gen2, mini, hub) + I also several (2) AirThings Correntium Home radon detectors Wave Radon results drastically different than charcoal tests and correntium (approx 2x higher both daily/weekly/monthly & long-term). Calibration/Testing performed under same conditions (as close as a homeowner and radon professional can come to making a lab). Application reports moving averages and is supposed to be reasonably accurate but has not been my experience. Note statistically speaking, difference between accuracy and precision...in my experience it’s neither.
  • Unreliable, Buggy, and Maddening Jan 18, 2019

    So far, this device is causing me nothing but stress and anxiety. It seems to go through a cycle which culminates in a very high radon reading then loosing its mind. At first, I was alarmed to see such high levels, but now I think I am just going to return the device. At least once a week, I have to remove the batteries, delete the app, wait 30 minutes, then install the batteries and app. Magically the radon levels fall from >4 to <3.

    Terrible app. Not doing the sync automatically in the background to alert you of any potential dangers. You have to manually open the app and sync in order to see the last values and then at that moment you will get the notifications. Not very safe for that reason.
  • Unreliable connectivity Oct 27, 2020

    By gobelin21
    I like having a way to know the radon levels in my basement and the device offers that, but its unreliable connectivity is making me an unsatisfied customer. Even more so since the device results are only really useful when viewed on the app. Since I got the device, Airthings released a few app updates and one firmware update, supposedly aimed at fixing some of these issues, but nothing has changed. Sure, the initial setup is easy and so on, but on a day to day, when I look at the app while right next to the device, it’s always a battle to make it connect to the app. I’ve got many other Bluetooth devices that connect seamlessly via Bluetooth; this one sure isn’t one of them. If all you care is the green/yellow/red ring on the device itself, then go for it; if you care about actual numbers, you’re goi g to be disappointed... at least until Airthings seriously gets onto this core issue. UPDATE: even after firmware updates, connectivity remains an issue. I’d stay away from this product... half the time you’re fighting with it just trying to connect to it.

    The app is gimped by design so that they can sell you their hub device for 79 euro. Despicable practice from a despicable company.
  • Stops synchronizing and stops collecting data Jan 13, 2019

    By Rennidy
    Set the device up, after 3 days of functioning properly the device stopped synchronizing with the app. After multiple attempts last remedy was to remove battery’s and start over, which cause total loss of data. Worked for 2 days after that and then sensors start to miss data. Device still synchronizes but 4 out of 6 sensors stopped reporting values. Last two sensors stopped 2 days later. I guess need to remove data again and will loose all data again. As is not a useable device.

    Doesn"t connect with Google Home. Waste of time and money.
  • Only works in portrait on iPad!!!! Sep 25, 2019

    By te52402
    I will give any app that only works in portrait a 1 star!!!! iPad Pros with a Smart Keyboard will ALWAYS be landscape. I’ve deleted and installed this app several times. It’s a waste of time. I’m not about to tip my 12.9 inch iPad Pro sideways, just to work with this app. Apple wants to replace laptops (and desktops) with iPads. This apps needs to keep up!!! I should mention that I go down to the basement weekly with my iPhone to sync my radon data. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. You just need to be patient and keep trying. It’s good in theory.
