Airthings Wave radon detector reviewNovember is Radon action month. Did you know that radon gas that seeps up from radioactive elements deep underground can collect in your home? You can’t smell it, taste it, or see it either. And radon is deadly, leading to more cases of lung cancer than any other cause for non-smokers. To help raise awareness of the dangers of radon, Best Buy is giving away 2 sets of Airthings monitors in this contest.

How can you be sure the air in your home is safe?

Your home is your sanctuary, a place you relax and unwind, enjoying time with your family. The last thing you need is a silent, odourless, invisible pest; and there is no nastier pest than radon gas. In Canada alone, over 3000 people die each year due to illnesses caused by radon (takeactiononradon.ca). That’s more than from car accidents!

Radon gas is a naturally occurring product of radioactive elements in the soil. It gets into our homes from the ground, and since it is heavier than air, it can collect in our homes and concentrate to hazardous levels. You can act to reduce it if you know it’s a problem in your home. Airthings smart monitors can measure the radon levels continuously and send those reading right to an app on your phone. In addition, the newest Airthings Wave Plus can measure radon, CO2, and other harmful substances for added protection (One of the prizes for this contest includes a Wave Plus!).

Radon levels are different all over the country

Last year, I sent one Airthings Wave monitor to writers across the country; the readings were then published in a review by Brad Moon on our blog. As you can see from the graph (reproduced here), radon levels vary a lot from place to place.

Best Buy has many kinds of smart technology designed to make your home safer. There are smart cameras, smart lights, smart sensors, and more. Using a monitor designed to detect radon is one way to keep your home safe. And, since placement is so important, you might need more than one if your home has multiple levels. That’s why we are giving each winner of this contest two monitors: so the air you breathe in your home can be safer.

How to enter

Entering is easy, but you can only enter once. First look at the smart home section of Best Buy’s website, then tell us another product (besides Airthings radon monitors) that you think would increase the safety of your home.

What you can win

At the end of this contest, we will select two (2) winners from all eligible entries. One person will win an Airthings Wave Plus and an Airthings Wave, the other person will receive an Airthings Wave and an Airthings Corentium Radon Gas Monitor.

This contest runs from November 28th to December 12th.

Remember, you can only enter once, but tell your family about the risks posed by radon gas so they too can act to protect their home.

  1. I would love these for my family. A lot of people don’t understand how un safe air is, and C02 is a silent killer! We use C0 and fire detectors as of right now. But I think we would like more security… like a ring doorbell, or some cameras!

  2. The Google Nest Protect Wi-Fi Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm would increase the safety of my home as I often light candles and forget and go out or go to bed and leave them burning, we also had a home near us that didn’t have carbon monoxide sectors and they both died in their sleep.

  3. the Arlo Pro 2 Wire-Free Indoor/Outdoor Security System with 2 1080p HD Cameras for added security for our farm

  4. I like the Arlo Pro 2 Wire-Free Indoor/Outdoor Security System with 2 1080p HD Cameras for added security for my family

  5. I’ve always considered getting a Ring doorbell to better protect my home, especially with having packages sent to my door!

  6. Besides Airthings radon monitors, another safety feature in the home is doorbell with camera inbuild so this way you can ensure that you don’t open the door for a random person. A must needed device for any home to improve overall safety.

  7. OMG! This is too uncanny! I just went for a breathing test and started talking to the technician about lung cancers and he told me that radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoking!!! I had no idea about any of this….just google radon gas map and find out the risk level in your region…crazyyy!!! Next to the Airthings monitor, I would love a security camera system!

  8. I would love to get the Arlo Pro 2 Wire-Free Indoor/Outdoor Security System with 2 1080p HD Cameras for added security for my family

  9. i think that Best Buy has a great selection of items to improve your peace of mind at home . one of the products is the Blink XT2 wire free home security system!

  10. The Blink XT2 Wire-Free Home Security System is wireless & compatible with Android and iOS devices so when you’re away you can remotely check up on your place. Thank you
