The Connected Product also measures room temperature and humidity. Furthermore when your Connected Product is connected to the Philips network, it is capable of transmitting certain information, including activity and error codes, to Philips. Philips uses this to provide you with related notifications and other related services (all together “Connected Product Services”).

In addition, you may use certain Connected Product applications provided by Philips on your mobile device (such as your cellular phone, tablet computer, or other connected device) to manage your Connected Product remotely, as well as other features (the “App”).
