iRobot, a well-known company specialized in the production of Robotic Vacuum Cleaner dedicated to household cleaning, has introduced two new models: Roomba i7+ and Roomba E5.
iRobot Roomba i7+ is a new flagship device in the series: in addition to integrating advanced features regarding automated cleaning, avoids the user one of the few tasks that previous models still left carry out manually, that is the unload the dustbin manually at the end of the cleaning.
The Roomba i7+ Clean Base doubles as both a charger and a dirt bin. After a cleaning job, it automatically sucks the debris out of the robot and stores it. When the Clean Base is full, you’ll get an alert from the Roomba Home app to change it.
As anticipated, It also integrates advanced functionality for automated cleaning, offering greater suction power than the Roomba 980 despite that It doesn’t have the “Power Boost” mode. It also offers improved mapping and labeling of different rooms, all remotely managed by means of the dedicated app. It is also integrated with the Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
iRobot Roomba i7+ is currently available for pre-order in the US with shipments starting from September 12th at the price of $949 for the whole system (or $699 without Clean Base).
The iRobot Roomba E5, on the other hand, its a budget model equipped with a Wi-Fi connection and improved performance. One of the main innovations is the three-stage cleaning system with multi-surface brushes in silicon, to adhere to different types of surfaces reaching even the most difficult corners of the house, while the Power-Lifting technology gives it a 5 times greater power than the 600 series systems; the Dirt Detect system finally recognizes the dirtiest areas where to concentrate the cleaning action.
