BE  BEWARE!

“PRO SERIES 3 ELECTRONIC RADON DECTORS” ARE  NOT  EPA  APPROVED!

There are several individuals and companies selling electronic radon detectors know as "Safety Siren Pro Series 3". Some are stating
that these devices are "approved" or "certified" by the EPA. These are false statements. These units are NOT approved by any radon
gas or health associations, including the EPA, NEHA, and AARST.

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. The
manufacturer does NOT state that this device has been “approved” by the EPA.

Please note that this detector should not be used as a substitute for performing a professional  radon test in your home. 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.
