In the first half of 2022, Rus­sians began to buy more smart tech­nol­o­gy. Sales are up 1.5x year-over-year in 2021, retail­ers say. Prod­ucts from the “smart home” cat­e­go­ry, smart devices: speak­ers, watch­es and vac­u­um clean­ers are in par­tic­u­lar demand. Among them are robot­ic vac­u­um clean­ers from ECOVACS. We have col­lect­ed in this mate­r­i­al sev­er­al pop­u­lar mod­els that, in our opin­ion, deserve atten­tion. All prices are valid at the time of writ­ing.

ECOVACS smart robot vacuum cleaners - an overview of popular modelsECOVACS man­u­fac­tures prod­ucts in the mid­dle and high price seg­ment. Pho­to:


The most bud­get mod­el of the rat­ing of robot­ic vac­u­um clean­ers. This com­pact (353x93.6 mm) and light (3.6 kg) device can be pur­chased for 38,900 rubles. It works qui­et­ly: at the high­est pow­er, the noise lev­el ris­es to 67 dB, which is no loud­er than a nor­mal con­ver­sa­tion.


  • com­bined clean­ing (dry and wet). The capac­i­ty of the dust con­tain­er is 420 ml, the water tank is 240 ml. The set includes 10 dis­pos­able wet clean­ing wipes. The sur­face mois­ture inten­si­ty can be changed. For exam­ple, for floor tiles, a full wash is prefer­able, and it is bet­ter to wipe the lam­i­nate with a dry cloth;
  • TrueMap­ping tech­nol­o­gy. It allows you to cre­ate an accu­rate map of the room (thanks to laser scan­ning) and save two routes, and not one like in most vac­u­um clean­ers;
  • ECOVACS Dee­bot N8+ is an assis­tant that will keep the room clean even when you are on a busi­ness trip. The dock­ing sta­tion has a reser­voir where the robot vac­u­um clean­er auto­mat­i­cal­ly unloads the col­lect­ed garbage. This means that ECOVACS can clean the premis­es sev­er­al times with­out the help of a per­son;
  • You can con­trol the robot through the ECOVACS HOME app. There, the pow­er, oper­at­ing mode or remote start are con­fig­ured;
  • the Vir­tu­al Bound­aryTM func­tion allows you to set zones through the appli­ca­tion that the robot clean­er will avoid;
  • you can con­nect the robot vac­u­um clean­er to the “smart home” from “Yan­dex” and con­trol it using “Alice”.

The mod­el is more expen­sive. The price is about 44 thou­sand rubles. ECOVACS N8 pro+ has three sig­nif­i­cant advan­tages over ECOVACS Dee­bot N8+:

  • high suc­tion pow­er (2600 ver­sus 2300), which allows the vac­u­um clean­er to deal with debris faster;
  • TrueDe­tect 3D tech­nol­o­gy, which helps the vac­u­um clean­er detect obsta­cles more accu­rate­ly. The sen­sor is already trig­gered at a dis­tance of 30 cm. Thanks to this ECOVACS tech­nol­o­gy, Dee­bot OZMO N8 pro plus notices details as small as 1 mm. It rec­og­nizes and bypass­es even thin wires;
  • auto-detec­tion of car­pets and car­pets. The wet clean­ing func­tion is turned off and the suc­tion pow­er increas­es as soon as the robot dri­ves onto the car­pet.

The remain­ing advan­tages of the ECOVACS N8 pro + robot vac­u­um clean­er are iden­ti­cal to the pre­vi­ous mod­el:

  • you can con­trol the device remote­ly through the ECOVACS HOME appli­ca­tion (choose routes, pow­er and type of clean­ing, lim­it zones);
  • The robot vac­u­um clean­er is self-clean­ing in a spe­cial tank in the dock­ing sta­tion. The capac­i­ty of such a bag is 2.5 liters;
  • can be con­nect­ed to the “smart home” from “Yan­dex” and con­trolled through “Alice”.

If you need a more pow­er­ful vac­u­um clean­er, then the ECOVACS Dee­bot OZMO T9 AIVI is a great solu­tion. On a sin­gle charge, it can work for 3 hours. The price of a smart gad­get is 53,900 rubles.

What’s new:

  • instead of the stan­dard tur­bo brush, which was in the vac­u­um clean­ers of pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tions, two extrac­tor rollers appeared here. In com­bi­na­tion with increased (up to 3000) suc­tion pow­er, such a roller sig­nif­i­cant­ly improves the qual­i­ty of dry clean­ing;
  • increased the max­i­mum noise lev­el. In the most pow­er­ful mode, it reach­es 72 dB, which is com­pa­ra­ble to a loud con­ver­sa­tion;
  • ECOVACS Dee­bot OZMO T9 AIVI received a more capa­cious bat­tery (5200 ver­sus 3200 for pre­vi­ous mod­els). On a sin­gle charge, the robot can work up to 180 min­utes. Full charge time has also increased from 4 to 6 hours;
  • fla­vor func­tion. The water tank now has a built-in con­tain­er where the aro­mat­ic cap­sule is insert­ed.

The pow­er of ECOVACS Dee­bot OZMO T9 AIVI is enough to clean a room up to 300 square meters. He knows how to rec­og­nize small objects, build a clear map, go around obsta­cles. The vol­ume of the water tank has become small­er: 180 ml ver­sus 240 ml. A place in it was tak­en under the con­tain­er for the aro­ma cap­sule.

Peo­ple often refuse to buy a robot vac­u­um clean­er because it gets tan­gled in wires, chews on rugs and gets stuck under fur­ni­ture. It is eas­i­er for the host­ess to sweep the floor or use a clas­sic vac­u­um clean­er than to con­stant­ly mon­i­tor the move­ments of the robot. But for ECOVACS T9 + you do not need to fol­low on the heels. With this mod­el, a new gen­er­a­tion of vac­u­um clean­ers from ECOVACS begins. It fea­tures advanced TrueDe­tect 3D and TrueMap­ping tech­nolo­gies and can adapt to even the most com­plex envi­ron­ments.

  • advanced dust col­lec­tor clean­ing sys­tem. In just 10 sec­onds, all debris com­plete­ly falls into a spe­cial dust col­lec­tor on the dock­ing sta­tion;
  • the capac­i­ty of the com­part­ment on the dock­ing sta­tion has become larg­er. Now the vol­ume is 3.2 liters (against 2.5 liters in pre­vi­ous mod­els);
  • new gen­er­a­tion tech­nol­o­gy OZMOTM Pro 3.0. In the third ver­sion, the speed and pow­er of clean­ing dif­fer­ent sur­faces has become high­er.

  • large dock­ing sta­tion It has a spe­cial block where garbage gets after self-clean­ing of the robot, and two addi­tion­al tanks (for clean and dirty water). After clean­ing, the device not only cleans the trash com­part­ment, but also drains the dirty water. For the next clean­ing, the sta­tion itself fills the com­part­ment with clean water (if it is in the tank);
  • in the stand, on which the ECOVACS X1 Omni calls in, there is a roller and spe­cial noz­zles. They wash the brush­es with clean water and dry them with hot air. True, the device can­not clean the brush­es from hair.
  • wash­ing wipes rotate at a speed of 180 rev­o­lu­tions per minute and cope with even dif­fi­cult dirt;

N8+ is a great mod­el if you need the most afford­able robot vac­u­um clean­er with a large range of options. Cre­ates an accu­rate map of the room, self-cleans into the tank on the dock­ing sta­tion, selects the type of clean­ing depend­ing on the floor cov­er­ing, works on a sin­gle charge up to two hours.

N8 pro+ is an improved ver­sion of the pre­vi­ous mod­el. High­er pow­er, there is a func­tion for rec­og­niz­ing small objects (from 1 mm) and turn­ing off wet clean­ing on car­pets.

T9 AIVI is a robot vac­u­um clean­er that can work up to three hours on a sin­gle charge. There are new rollers for improved dry clean­ing and two brush­es for wet clean­ing (vibrat­ing for wip­ing stains and a nap­kin for wip­ing the floor). A nice bonus is the arom­a­ti­za­tion of the room.

T9+ is a new gen­er­a­tion vac­u­um clean­er that is sim­i­lar in func­tion to T9 AIVI. But it finds obsta­cles bet­ter, builds clear­er maps, and can do both types of clean­ing at the same time.

X1+ is pow­er­ful, styl­ish new for 2022. It has all the advan­tages of pre­vi­ous mod­els (accu­rate map­ping, air arom­a­ti­za­tion, com­bi­na­tion of dif­fer­ent types of clean­ing). In addi­tion, the suc­tion pow­er and the vol­ume of the dust col­lec­tor are increased.

X1 Omni is a mod­ern robot with a max­i­mum range of options. It can com­plete­ly self-clean and pre­pare for the next clean­ing. So you will be min­i­mal­ly involved in the process.
