No, your Wave is always on and always measuring your radon levels, and it does not need a phone to analyze your air quality.

The Wave app is great because it helps you visualize your radon levels on your phone screen, and see how Radon has behaved over the past 48 hours, 1 week, 1 month, and 1 year.

In order to get the latest readings from your Wave you must be in proximity of the device, have bluetooth turned on, and open the Airthings App. Once the the Wave has synced with your phone, all of the measurements that are saved on the Wave will upload to the cloud and be available for you to see in the app or from your online dashboard at
