For instance, in cities around the world, air quality is crucial to healthy living,especially with allergies and respiratory problems on the rise. Our deep consumer insights told us that people in megacities like Shanghai and Berlin want to understand and control air quality in their home, from wherever they are. So we devised the Philips Smart Air Purifier, which provides families with a real-time overview and control of indoor air quality via their smartphone.
Equally, today’s digital parents want technology to serve their families’ ever-changing needs. So our innovators are developing the Philips AVENT Smart Baby Monitor which connects to and is operated by a smartphone, ensuring parents are never disconnected from their baby. It is also linked to our revolutionary lighting system, Philips Hue, to create an immersive experience for the baby, with lighting ‘recipes’ that create the right ambiance to help at bedtime, waking-up and feeding.
The ‘Internet of Things’ puts the consumer in the driving seat and allows us at Philips to ensure our products are more personal, relevant and impactful than ever before. The consumer has always been at the heart of what we do. This interconnected world presents new ways for Philips to work with consumers to help them to be healthier, live well and enjoy their life.
