Auto Mode varies fan speed based on Air Quality. But Auto Mode only works if you keep the light on. If your room is not well illuminated the light sensor will turn off Auto Mode making Auto Mode useless in darker rooms. It should be possible to disable the light sensor so that Auto Mode can be used in darker rooms.

I've had my purifier for about 6 weeks.
The night mode - no, it can't be changed manually, but the purifier still adjusts the fan as needed so I don't see the big deal. I haven't experienced it going into night mode during the day like others have. It would be nice to have night mode as an option to turn on/off ourselves, but it's not something worth putting me off buying. You can always change the fan speed yourself, or if you want to see what colour your air quality is, or what speed the fan is on, you can just tap the night button and it wi...ll illuminate for a few seconds. Other than that, I have no complaints, it works awesome and I'm super happy with the price. The air quality will often reflect 'unhealthy' or 'very unhealthy' in the room around the same time I start sneezing which is pretty cool - shows it's working properly (and what I'm allergic/sensitive to). After a couple of days I noticed a huge reduction in my sneezing, blocked nose, and other allergy related symptoms. My bird seems to be experiencing the same too!! This is safe for birds (and other pets and us) as it uses true HEPA filter and no negative ions. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but I did a lot of research so I don't think so.

Perfect, don’t know how I lived without it
Great product, had breathing problems before and now all clear, I leave it on 24/7. Sleep better, my Dog also had a skin allergy and that has cleared up. My emphysema is so much better. Night mode I can’t hear it.

Know better, choose better.
A little pricier than other comparable Air Purifiers but works well
Some people seem worried about the Philips 1215/70 automatically switching over to sleep mode so I will address this matter first.
When in night mode the air purifier operates just as stated in the Philips manual.
When the lights are very dim the unit switches off the bright circular light which indicates the current air quality. The indicators are:
Red: very unhealthy. ...

Fault in design
Customers beware. All of these units have the same issue. The night sensor on the unit has been designed to active when low levels of light are in the room. The night sensor on all units sold will activate when it should sense light. The design from phillps has made all units sold turn on night when the light level is still high. There is no way to turn night mode off. The unit will always run in night mode. Night mode does not have the HEPA mode. No benefit from night mode and no way to override it. Phillps have no answer and have yet to correct the fault in the design

Questions & Answers
Hi there - have only had my purifier for under a week and the air quality indicator now does not change from a purple status and when on auto mode constantly stays on high rather than stabilise as it did when first used.
My opinion is your air quality is very bad where you are. Try pressing the child lock for 3 seconds to reset. Sometimes my Purifier will stay purple all day because of bad air. Try closing all doors and see if it turns blue
Hi Chip, thank you for your question. As the user above has mentioned, you can try resetting the device by holding the child lock button for around 3 seconds.
