  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Worth every penny and then some!!! Feb 2, 2020

    By mjdrumsloud
    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!!!

  • 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.

    Showmore detailed data. Why don't you have an option to show 24 hours and hour by hour information (let alone minute by minute). When you buy this you expect to be able to source your problem, how can this be done if you can't see the time when the pollution spikes?

  • Love this company and its products Nov 21, 2019

    By Defenderw
    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.

  • Awesome Dec 15, 2020

    By mswlogo
    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.

  • 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.

    Would it be possible to have more granularity in the tracking chart? I'm noticing a pattern in the data that shows a "bad air condition" peak every day and I'd like to know the time when it is hapenning. Thanks!

    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!?

    Airthings Wave plus Hub setup wasn't possible for me through the Android version of this app. Wave & Wave Mini both appeared "Out of sync" despite running through the setup multiple times. Almost gave up, then pulled an old iPad out from a drawer and sure enough it took under 10mins to get it working using the IOS. Support later contacted me and offered suggestions to improve the experience in Android. A few days after setup it's now working. 5 stars to support, not the App

  • I like the device Oct 30, 2020

    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.

  • So far not impressed Dec 16, 2020

    By Ajobaan007
    Setup was a pain. Whoever their app testing lead is should be fired - the process is unbearably buggy. Once the device is paired its a bit difficult to understand the data. First, it says it takes measurements every 5 minutes, but the “sample count” says 0 after 20 minutes and performing multiple syncs. Basic things you’d expect from a decent app, such as specifying the display unit of measure for atmospheric pressure, or adjusting the levels you’d like to be alerted at for various metrics, and device battery level, are absent entirely. I’m gonna keep trying this device, but first app impression doesn’t make me feel like it’s a $150 device.

  • 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.

    Lacks functionality. Cannot scale y-axis of graphs, cannot overlay graphs to see relationships between measured values, no simple overview, e.g. Dashboard showing temperatures for the whole house at a glance, and the list goes on. Seemingly minor things that could easily be implemented and would vastly improve usability.
