New, Smart Air Purifier by Philips

Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) is entering a new category in North America and expanding its portfolio of home appliances with the launch of a range of smart, innovative air purifiers and humidifiers. These new products give families the power to manage the most important part of the home – the air they breathe.

“With the development of new products, we are continually looking for ways to make an impact on the quality of life for people by bringing meaningful innovations to homes around the world,” said Eline de Graaf, Marketing Director for Philips New Categories. “Knowing that your air at home can have two to five times more allergens and pollutants than outdoor air, we came out with the Philips Air Purifiers and Humidifiers to encourage a better home environment with cleaner air.”

Philips Air Purifiers and Humidifier Improving the quality of air indoors

Philips offers peace of mind by making your air quality visible. The Philips Air Purifiers’ unique numerical index, corresponding color ring, and connected app, make it easy to track and control air quality in the home – alerting in real-time to even the slightest change in indoor air conditions. The numerical display from 1-12 is an index of the indoor air quality, where 1 is good and 12 is polluted air. The color ring provides an additional visual cue, ranging from blue (good allergen & particle level) to red (bad allergen & particle level). Through the connected app, users can also see both indoor and outdoor air quality, track trends over time, receive allergen management advice and control the purifier, anytime or anywhere.

With professional grade AeraSense technology, the Philips Air Purifiers automatically monitor, react, and purify indoor air, capturing 99.97% of particles1. They remove the most common allergens, including pollen, pet dander, dust mites, mold spores, as well as gases and odors. The purifiers also have an extra-sensitive allergen mode that boosts the fan speed even when it detects small increases of allergens in the air. Its multi-stage active filtration system consists of 3 different filters: a pre-filter for large particles, an active carbon filter for odors and gases (VOCs)2, and a True HEPA filter that captures particles as small as 0.3 microns1. The Philips Air Purifiers are available for a range of room sizes and are AHAM and Energy Star Certified.

Rounding out the portfolio of innovative air treatment appliances is the Philips Humidifier, which prevents the spreading of bacteria. Laboratory testing confirms that NanoCloud technology spreads 99% less bacteria than leading ultrasonic humidifiers3 while also preventing wet spots and white dust4. The product also offers a smart humidity sensor that enables you to precisely manage the humidity level of the room and that shuts off automatically to prevent over-humidification.
