    This Meter/Monitor is a great tool. We've done some initial Radon testing with long-term test kits submitted for laboratory analysis - The result in one of our partially subterranian rooms this winter was 8.9 pCi/L. Since we wanted to try several Radon reduction/ mitigating techniques and know the results in days rather than months, I ordered the SafetySiren Pro Series 3 digital readout Meter after seeing the Reviews showing that nearly all buyers of this unit were pleased.

    While still winter, our initial reading in the same area in the room on this digital readout Meter was 8.4 pCi/L; this was most likely lower than before because we have been making an effort to open the window more often.

    To initially clear the air in the room, I opened the window and door in the room and ran a fan to blow air (and Radon) out the window for a few hours. The Meter updated values displayed hourly and beeped until the Radon level fell below 4 pCi/L. We will try a few different ventilation techniques in the room over a period of time to see what works best without requiring excessive power consumption, noise, drafts, etc.

    I was pleased to find that the direct plug-in power supply provided and used with the Meter is UL Listed.

    I fully agree with most of the valuable comments made by Gus T on 1/6/2010. Here are the key comments of his which were most useful to me: "This is a great investment and worth every penny. The only real complaint I had was that the manual should have made a couple of things a little more clear. I read reviews where some complained about no battery backup, so people thought the unit would have to start over if they lost power, but the unit will actually retain the reading in memory until it regains power, so thats good enough for me.

    Also, if it goes to 4.0 or above at any time, the LED will be lit up beside (L) long term and won't switch over to (S) short term until radon levels are below 4.0. Again this is no big deal and they did this on purpose, but it would have beeen nice if it was made clear in the manual. The unit is made in the USA up in MI, which is also good. Go ahead and get one."

    After we get this room's Radon level under control, we plan to move the Meter to the next room which reached 7 pCi/L when we measured with a long-term test kit. In the meantime, we're ventilating that room much more than before. Once that room is taken care of, we plan to offer/loan the Meter to my brother-in-law to check his home as well.

    This product has been know for it's defect, as per my mitigation guy. It will not stay in the "S" mode when that's what I set it at. It automatically goes into the "L" mode and will not return to the "S" mode. This happens intermittently; and the reading is not over 4.0. This product is about my health, and the health of my lungs. Which I consider very important as I have lost a loved one from lung cancer caused by radon. I am extremely disappointed, and want a replacement that works properly!

      Simple to use and gives consistent results. It showed us that we do have a radon problem, so we can get it sorted out. Recommended.

      Radon Gas Detector

      By Gabe Capan

      Comments about Safety Siren Pro Series3 Radon Gas Detector:

      I bought this unit as a simple way to test for radon in our home, the product works great as described. The product seems to collect accurate data and provides results much faster than testing and waiting for one of those mail-in radon detection kits.

      This unit is very versatile as it can be transported to different areas of your home in order to take various readings if needed. It is important to note that it takes a minimum of two days of sampling before data will appear on the screen, and the product guide recommends sampling for a week (short term) to a month (long term). This sample length is important to give a true average for the radon reading for your home as weather conditions and changes in atmospheric pressure and play a crucial role in varying the level of radon in your home.

      The product is also very simple to use as it only has one button. This button is used to switch from short term to long term sampling, to test the alarm, to turn the alarm on or off, and to clear all of the testing data from the unit, which is handy if you move it to a new location. I also remember reading that this unit can store up to five years worth of sampling data before it resets. All of these functions are controlled by how long you press down on the only button that is located on the device, so it is a very simple and reliable product to use.

      Simple and easy to use, bought two to check precision

      By PT in UT

      from USA

      Comments about Safety Siren Pro Series3 Radon Gas Detector:

      We bought two of these to use throughout our HOA. I set both in the same location twice and got readings within 0.5 of each other, so they seem to be fairly precise. As far as accuracy, they give readings on par with some professional test that were done. For the price, portability, and fact that you don't need to send in any samples for testing, I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to get a ballpark idea of their radon levels.

      Works well

      Comments about Safety Siren Pro Series3 Radon Gas Detector:

      The radon detector is working as advertised; the alarm sounded when the short-term reading was above 4.0, and the long-term reading is updated regularly. The instructions are clear, and product set-up was simple. I will be interested to see how it works after we have a mitigation system installed.

      This detector determined the same reading as the mail in test kit. It can be shared with friends and neighbors. Pass it to anyone putting the home on the market. Great value.

      The device works as expected. Pretty simple to install just plug it in. As others have stated you need to wait 48 before it will display a reading.
