Be Unfazed by Haze with the Philips Series 3000i Air Cleaner

AeraSense technology effectively monitors air quality and optimises settings to give you cleaner indoor air, while the connected app provides information and gives users control

Petaling Jaya, Malaysia Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, is helping Malaysians better manage the perennial haze challenge with its innovative technology. During this period, having better tools makes a difference – as poor air quality is known to contribute to respiratory illnesses such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or even worsen heart conditions, with the young, the elderly and those with existing respiratory conditions at particular risk.

When the haze is around, staying indoors may not help as the tiny smoke particles can seep in through door and window cracks and air vents, while the relative lack of ventilation and air circulation indoors causes the hazardous particles to be trapped, thus prolonging exposure to the home’s occupants. To help Malaysians manage the risks caused by the annual haze, our innovative air purifier can monitor air quality and optimise settings for cleaner indoor air, besides providing advice on air quality readings and allowing users to control the air purifier via a connected app.

Smarter and more powerful

The Philips Series 3000i Air Cleaner (AC3259/30)’s innovative AeraSense technology is able to detect and measure pollution and control purification. The professional-grade AeraSense sensor is able to accurately identify fine particles that are even smaller than PM2.5, which includes most common indoor airborne allergens, and in turn process this information to ensure that the purifier’s settings are at the ideal level for current air conditions. It is highly effective in sensing even the slightest change in indoor air conditions - continuously monitoring the air quality and automatically adjusting the fan speed when a change in the volume of particles is detected. For maximum cleaning results, the purifier is equipped with Vitashield IPS that optimises its aerodynamic design and extra thick NanoProtect filter to boost clean air delivery to 393 m3/hr – effectively removing particles, allergens, bacteria and viruses1.

Meanwhile, users get continuous feedback on the indoor air quality in real-time via a visualised air quality system, where the AeraSense system displays the Air Quality Index on a numerical display, with a corresponding colour ring on the air purifier’s dashboard providing an additional visual cue, ranging from blue (good pollution and particle level) to red (bad pollution and particle level).

Automated for convenience yet flexible

The Philips Air Purifier Series 3000i makes getting the best outcome simple with its three automatic purification settings – a General mode, a specially designed extra-sensitive Allergen mode that effectively removes common airborne allergens by automatically boosting its cleaning performance when needed, and an extra-powerful Bacteria and Virus mode. The purifier also offers flexibility with five manual modes. Users can choose from five different speed settings – from the extra-quiet ‘Sleep’ mode to the extra-powerful ‘Turbo Speed’ mode.

Better control at your fingertips

The Air Matters app that connects to the Philips Series 3000i Air Cleaner offers information at your fingertips and enables you to control the air purifier. The dashboard gives you one simple overview to check the outdoor air quality and pollen levels and keep track of your indoor air quality. You can also get advice on managing your exposure to allergens or bad quality air. Via the app, control your air purifier from anywhere – turn it on, change the fan speed or check if it’s time to replace your filter.
