We’ve all been hearing about the prevalence of Artificial Intelligence or AI and it’s been a bit chilling to read about how programs like ChatGPT use AI to write whatever you ask it to (see our story here). But would you believe Philips has a new Air Purifier 7000 Series out now which is the first of it’s kind to be powered by Artificial Intelligence or AI. It’s called the Air Performer 7000 Series 2-in-1 Air Purifier and Fan (AMF765/70) and it’s the smartest 2-in-1 air purifier in the world.
While other devices are bringing AI to your computer or your office, this Air Purifier range brings AI into your home. The Air Performer 7000 intelligently senses its surroundings, moderating its functions so the air in your home is fresh and yes – it clears 99.97% of particulate matter from your air, filtering out pollutants as small as 0.003 microns!
The Philips Air Performer is the first multi-functional air purifier in the world to use AI to automatically clean the air and cool it down. Thanks to Philips AI-powered Self-Adaptive technology, it not only senses the air quality but also analyses outdoor data, room size and learns from usage patterns to maximise performance while minimising noise and energy consumption.
Covering up to 70m2, the Air Performer 7000’s NanoProtect HEPA filtration system filters out all those unseen particles of bacteria, pollen, dust, pet dander, dust mites, mould spores, gases and odours from your air.
In a nice twist, this Air Performer cleans your air and cools your home down at the same time with powerful fan cooling. The device uses AI to automatically clean the air by using smart sensing and machine learning. The AI function can be turned on or left off – so you don’t have to have it on all the time.
Geoff Hannaford, Country Manager, Australia and New Zealand for Philips Domestic Appliances said: “The Philips Air Performer is… the smartest 2-in-1 air purifier in the world to use Artificial Intelligence to automatically clean the air and cool it down. The AI technology is unique to us. Thanks to advanced sensors and smart algorithms, this device only acts when needed avoiding unnecessary energy consumption.”
Smart features meet intelligent design
The Philips Air Performer has adjustable rotation and this allows it to reach every corner of the room, while the bladeless design creates a powerful stream of cool, purified air. As well, it also comes with a Sleep mode, which means it operates in ultra-quiet mode at night when you’re trying to sleep.
Connected with renewed Smart Home app
When you pair the Air Purifier with the Air+ App, you can get all the stats to show you what you indoor air quality was before you start using the Air Purifier and then how it changes this quality when it operates. You can even program the device remotely so this way, you know you’re coming home to clean air.
The Philips Air Performer can connect to WiFi and keeps you in control – whether you’re at home or away, with the remote control and notifications about any air concerns. Thanks to its smart sensors, it detects and displays in real-time, PM2.5, allergens, harmful gases, temperature and humidity. So you could be in the office and get an alert that this device has detected humidity in your home and is now acting on drying this up! That’s handy. You can download the app for iOS here and for Android here.

Some more information on why it’s so important to have clean indoor air
Over 400 million people are estimated to suffer from allergies globally, but many remain underdiagnosed and undertreated, making it the fifth most common chronic disease globally. Philips Domestic Appliances has created the Clean Air white paper to bring more awareness to the issue of indoor air pollution and its detrimental health impacts. The Clean Air white paper, which has been independently reviewed by leading academics and physicians in the fields of air pollution, allergy, and respiratory health, has shown the use of air purifiers with HEPA filters can help reduce the levels of particles in the air which can trigger allergies in some people.
Here are some top tips on how to clean a home to help those who suffer from allergies:
On average people spend an astonishing 90% of their time indoors with indoor pollutant and air quality levels frequently 2–5 times, sometimes even 100 times, higher than outdoor levels.
In situations where proper ventilation or avoidance of air pollution sources is not possible or practical, air purifiers may be extra beneficial. This is especially true for patients with asthma, for adults and children with hay fever and for individuals frequently exposed to air pollutants indoors.
Other advice to reduce allergies within the home:
1) Vacuum once or twice a week with a vacuum that is equipped with a HEPA filter.
2) Avoid air-drying laundry and wash your bed linen at 60 C. Drying laundry outside when
pollen levels are high will pick up pollen so use the clothes dryer instead.
3) When entering the home consider changing clothes and washing your hair to remove
any pollen that you might carry with you.
4) Avoid scented cleaners or detergents. If you have allergies, the fragrances in cleaners
may trigger symptoms.
5) Keep windows closed during the day in pollen season.
