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.
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”.
ECOVACS N8 pro+
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”.
ECOVACS T9 AIVI
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.
- 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.
- can simultaneously sweep, vacuum and mop the floor thanks to OZMOTM Pro 2.0 technology;
- high suction power (3000) and a capacious battery (5200 mAh). On a single charge, it can work up to 180 minutes.
- works through the application with two- and three-dimensional maps. The visual design is beautiful and understandable;
- automatic garbage collection in a special tank on the docking station (as in previous models). Garbage dumping can be disabled;
- there is an air freshener function (can also be turned off).
In March 2022, they officially introduced a new line from this brand. The ECOVACS Deebot x1 plus robot vacuum cleaner is a model for 78,900 rubles, which is included in it.
- 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. Thanks to 600 vibrations of the brushes per minute, the robot copes with large volumes of dust, wool, and hair faster than its predecessors. Suction power increased to 5000;
- has its own YIKO voice assistant. Those who do not use the “Smart Home” system from “Yandex” and cannot control the device through “Alice” will appreciate it.
ECOVACS X1 Omni
Our rating of vacuum cleaner robots is completed by a powerful, large, stylish gadget for 93,900 rubles. The design of the novelty was developed by Jacob Jensen Studio from Denmark. This is not just a vacuum cleaner — it is an interior decoration. With it, you can completely forget about routine cleaning. Why? Now we’ll tell you.
- 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;
- AIVITM 3D technology (artificial intelligence) allows you to recognize obstacles and people;
- there is a built-in YIKO helper. The vacuum cleaner can be controlled using voice commands.
