STAMFORD, Conn., May 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of World Allergy Week (April 22 – April 28), Philips is continuing the fight against airborne allergens while giving families better control over the air quality in their home with the launch of the Philips Air Purifier Series 5000i. The new connected air purifier packs six high quality filters and two high performance air quality sensors, into a compact purifier smaller than a carry-on suitcase. Multiple smart modes, such as Allergen mode and Virus mode, complement the Air Matters app to help reduce the tiny, difficult-to-see allergens and toxins that can bring discomfort to families and interrupt everyday routines.
Philips Air Purifier Series 5000i provides superior performance, with identification and removal of odors and gases1 in extra-large rooms up to 454 square feet, while helping users track current air quality with simple visual cues. Backed by cutting-edge AeraSense technology, Philips Air Purifier Series 5000i uses a multi-stage active filtration system to capture 99.97% of allergens such as pollen and dust mites2, in addition to gases and odors. With a dual sided air intake, Philips has two sets of each of the following filters:
- Pre-filter: removes larger dust and hair
- True HEPA filter: removes ultrafine particles as small as 0.3 microns2
- Active carbon filter: absorbs gasses including volatile organic compounds and odors
"We wanted to introduce families to a new superior approach to air purifying without compromising size and efficiency," says Eline de Graaf, Marketing Director for Philips. "Philips Air Purifier Series 5000i offers the ability to control the quality of air anywhere in the home. With new app connectivity features and visual cues for real-time access, families can feel confident that their home's air quality is the best it can be."
Philips Air Purifier Series 5000i offers visual reassurance of air quality with simple visual cues via unique numerical index and corresponding color ring so families can feel confident that even the smallest particles are properly filtered. The four color design visually presents indoor air quality by color cues – from blue (good) to red (poor). The monitoring system indicates potential risk of air allergens and displays the density level of detected gases.
Families are also able to customize the air purifier to their needs with special modes such as the Extra-sensitive Allergen mode, which detects the slightest change in allergen level and responds instantly to return allergens to a safe level, and Sleep Mode, which dims display lights and operates in near-silence for clean air while you sleep.
Philips Air Purifier Series 5000i connects to the new Air Matters app to provide real-time access to indoor and outdoor allergen levels, historical tracking, advice, and tools to reduce airborne allergens at home effectively. Air Matters is available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play. Philips Air Purifier Series 5000i will have the ability to connect to Amazon Alexa in Spring 2018 for even more convenience at home.
