I assume you mean the end of radon measurement testing by professionals??
As this is a radon measurement device.
If that is your questions intent, it would be doubtful.
But there really isn’t much info about the product.
Can it provide radon test results in the time available for real estate transactions?
Is it approved as such for your state/municipality?

“Every home should have a radondetector, and it’s our mission at Airthings to make that happen”
Radon exposureclaims the lives of approximately 21,000 Americans each year, which more thansix times the number of deaths attributed annually to house fires and carbonmonoxide poisoning combined. The dangerous gas is present in every homenationwide, to varying degrees based on climate, ventilation levels, time ofyear and a variety of other factors. The most common type of radon test kitused today is based on charcoal canisters, which only provide a short-termmeasurement (days) and require being sent to a lab for analysis. This isproblematic, as radon levels fluctuate significantly over time. Airthings Wavefundamentally changes the way radon is measured by using digital sensors andsmart home technology. This allows for the unique combination of real-timeradon levels and long-term measurement, which is crucial for health andwellness.

Interesting thanks to all who posted .
Sounds like an almost useless product.
Why would you need to know your homes radon level on some app on your phone?
Other than that it’s just another home radon monitor.
Being informed by an app if a connected smoke or CO detector goes off, that’s important, but radon?? :roll:
I am betting the EPA has not approved the Pro unit yet. I think it is a slick design.
The EPA has never approved ANY of their devices. ALL of their accrediations are overseas! There are a handfull of inspectors on this MB that use their devices, and there have been many discussions here. Do a search to (maybe get lucky) find them.
I use the Corentium as a backup. Same company with a new name.
The EPA has not approved any radon testing device since the 90’s.
They leave that up to the states, and many states don’t approve radon testing devices.
So Sun Nuclear lied to me a few years back when they said they were waiting for EPA approval on their newest monitor?
