1. Radon

The Wave Plus logs a radon reading once every hour.

The radon measurements you see are always rolling 24 hour averages, compiled of the hourly measurements that have been taken.

For example, if you see a radon reading of 10 Bq/m3 in your app, this means 10 Bq/m3 is the average level of radon over the past 24 hours. 

Due to the nature of radon and its fluctuations, it is very important to measure radon over a longer period of time, in order to obtain a reliable long term average. We recommend the ideal measurement is for at least 30 days in one location, although 7 days is the absolute minimum amount of time that can give you an estimate on your radon levels. If you initially see very high levels when you first set up your device, don't worry, and continue to monitor for at least 7 days.


If you move your device to another location, we recommend resetting your device and starting a new measurement so the data collected is accurate for the radon exposure in that particular area.

Hint! Radon can be measured in bequerels (bq/m3) or picocuries (pCi/l), depending on where you live and what system you use (metric vs US).

2. Temperature

Temperature is measured every 5 minutes.

Readings are available in Fahrenheit or Celsius.

The reading you see in your app is the most recent measurement taken in the last 5 minutes. However, you can also choose to see average temperature figures over the last 48hrs, week, etc... by continuing to the graphs for temperature in more detail.

3. Humidity

Humidity is measured every 5 minutes.

The reading you see in your app is the most recent measurement of relative humidity taken in the last 5 minutes. However, you can also choose to see your average humidity levels over the last 48hrs, week, etc... by continuing to the graphs for humidity in more detail.

4. Air pressure

Air pressure is measured every 5 minutes.

The reading you see in your app is the most recent measurement of barometric pressure taken in the last 5 minutes. However, you can also choose to see your average air pressure levels over the last 48hrs, week, etc... by continuing to the graphs for more detail.

5. TVOC

TVOC is measured every 5 minutes.

TVOC stands for total volatile organic compounds, and is a total measurement of gases/chemicals in your environment.

The reading you see in your app is the most recent measurement of VOC activity taken in the last 5 minutes. However, you can also choose to see your average TVOC levels over the last 48hrs, week, etc... by continuing to the graphs for more detail.

6. Carbon dioxide

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is measured every 5 minutes.

The reading you see in your app is the most recent measurement of CO2 taken in the last 5 minutes. However, you can also choose to see your average CO2 levels over the last 48hrs, week, etc... by continuing to the graphs for more detail.

In a nutshell, radon is measured once an hour and gives you a rolling 24 hour average, while everything else is measured every 5 minutes.

Remember! If moving your device to a new location, you should reset your device and start a new measurement. Check here for more detail.
