Safety Siren Pro Series 3
Electronic Radon Detector
The Safety Siren Pro Series 3 Electronic Radon Detector from Family Safety Products is the only radon gas detector on the market designed for use by the homeowner. This low cost, consumer oriented digital radon detector allows the homeowner to monitor the radon level in their home with an easy-to-read digital display. The manufacturer states that the device has been tested by EPA approved laboratories and has been proven to accurately measure radon.
The Pro 3 digital radon monitor is designed to plug into a standard 110-volt household outlet using the attached 10 foot power cord. The detector may be placed face-up on a tabletop, counter top, or any flat surface where the ventilation slots will not be blocked. The radon detector provides a continuous reading of the radon level in your home.
Please note that this detector should not be used as a substitute for performing a conventional radon test in your home, or for professional applications. The device is suitable for monitoring home radon levels only after an initial assessment has been performed using conventional test kits or by a radon professional. Further, periodic testing using conventional test kits should be done in conjunction with the detector to ensure it is working properly. Radon is odorless and colorless and there is no way to ensure the device is working properly without such cross checks. Please see our combo offer below to include a discounted conventional test kit with your order.

The EPA Recommends the Following Testing Steps:
The amount of radon in the air is measured in "picoCuries per liter of air," or "pCi/L." Sometimes test results are expressed in Working Levels (WL) rather than picoCuries per liter (pCi/L) (4 pCi/L equals to 0.016 WL).
Using a short term charcoal radon test kit, if your result is 4 pCi/L or higher (0.02 Working Levels [WL] or higher) take a follow-up test (Step 2) to be sure.
Follow-up with either a long term test or a second short term test:
The higher the result of your initial short term radon test kit, the more certain you can be that you should take another short term test rather than a long term follow-up test.
If your first short term test result is several times the action level - for example, about 10 pCi/L or higher - you should take a second short term test immediately.
If you followed up with a long term alpha track test kit: Fix your home if your long term test result is 4 pCi/L or more (0.02 Working Levels [WL] or higher).
If you followed up with a second short term radon test kit: The higher your short term results, the more certain you can be that you should fix your home. Consider fixing your home if the average of your first and second test is 4 pCi/L or higher (0.02 Working Levels [WL] or higher).
