i don't have first hand experience but i made a post in the Home & Garden forum on RFD asking about radon detection and pretty much every single response was to get one of these things so I think they're well reviewed and work well.

I have this and according to reviews and my radon mitigation professional, they said this is very accurate. Of course as a home owner, these are a bit difficult for us to verify. All I can say is the reading dropped significantly before and after the remediation done by the professional.

Radon increases the chance of lung cancer, so it's worth it for my family.

I have been seeing lot of threads about Airthings as well on RFD. Last week I was doing some research and couple of reviews on Amazon mentioned that this thing is not accurate and also not in list of approved devices for mesurij Radon by some government agency.

This was for a model lower than one OP posted but it was by Airthings.

I have owned one for a while. Generally pretty accurate. Biggest thing I’ve noticed is that CO2 levels get high without windows or doors being opened. It doesn’t send you notifications unless you sync it manually using the app though.

Yes, I have one and compared to other sensors. This is pretty good and the one I would recommend to everyone.

This model uses the same sensor as the RadonEye. Both are certified sensors. Search RFD for previous threads on radon for the list.

Yes, high CO2 readings have convinced me to get an ERV for fresh air. So far I've been opening windows but that's a huge waste of energy.

The View Plus is coming out - it has direct wifi connection.

I have the wave plus and finding that needing a intermediary phone for connection / updates is very annoying. Also the view plus has a particulate count that will help give a better picture of the air quality.

Wave plus has TVOC, CO2 and air pressure sensors, works with home kit but it is not necessary because radon is not something you need to check frequently. The ability to keep historic data is important though.

Wave only has Radon, temperature and humidity sensors.

View Plus has Wave Plus and PM2.5 and a LCD screen.

People around you may have weaken immune system (or live with one). Wear a mask if possible, especially if you have cold symptoms.

Thank you, just cancelled my order and waiting for this. Agree to your points - I had one of these back when they first came out and was very annoyed by it and then annoyed again with the idea of having the bridge for all the minis I was thinking of having in the kids rooms.. the sale and RFD made me forget how annoyed I was with Airthings lol - Thank you - will wait for the next gen versions to come out - hope the wifi mini will come out sometime soon too.

I would avoid another wifi device in bedroom if possible, especially in kids bedrooms.

How easy is this if want to test multiple homes?

Thought there were issues with using it like that.

For use in multiple houses would it be better to get this on sale? It only is for radon though.

2022: BOC raised 6 times and MCAP raised its prime next day.
2017 to 2018: BOC raised rates 5 times and MCAP raised its prime next day each time.
2020: BOC dropped rates 3 times and MCAP waited to drop its prime to include all 3 drops.

ViewPlus is nicer but not sure it's worth the $168 over this deal. It is listed at $379 MSRP vs $299 MSRP for the Wave Plus.

It's not easy to move as there's a fairly lengthy calibration period that it goes through when you reset the device. I suppose you can calibrate it once and move it, but then again it's measuring the trend as opposed to a point in time, so you would still need to have it at a particular location for an extended period of time.
