Wave: Can I use the device without using the app?

Yes, you can!

While the instruction manual shows how to download and install the mobile application, please note that the device can be used completely without the mobile application. 

Simply insert the batteries. When you wave in front of the device it should display a white light while the device calibrates. After 2 hours it should display a green, yellow, or red light depending on the radon level, upon waving in front of the unit. 

Keep in mind that without using the mobile application you don't have access to any other features than the light-ring display. To use the app, you will need to create an account and agree that Airthings gathers user information.

    But if an app-enabled device is not in bluetooth proximity to the Wave or Wave+, then no IFTTT triggers will work to run other devices correct? In this case is a hub with a true wireless connection required?

    Followup question: If my app-enabled devices leave the house with me, the web dashboard will only show me the data from the last time when the app was synced - which might have been hours ago correct? If there was a way I could connect the BT to my home computer (OSX not iOS) then that would be like a fake hub right?
