iRobot might already ring a bell to you because the company has been ‘a global pioneer in the robotics and consumer products industries’* for over 25 years. They’ve produced award-winning robotic vacuums and continue to create innovative devices to help keep homes neat and tidy (without all the manual hard work!).

It’s almost too good to be true, but you can really kick your feet up and spend your free time on the couch while a little robotic vacuum quietly roams your floors and cleans them! If this sounds appealing to you (why wouldn’t it?!) then you’ll be glad to know that iRobot has three new models on the carpet market for you to get your hands on.

 

Speaking of which, in celebration of the Chinese New Year, iRobot and Bing Lee have teamed up to give three lucky people the chance to win one of the three new models! All you need to do is complete the entry form before 18/02/18: http://binglee.shopirobot.com.au/

iRobot Roomba 637

If tech-savviness isn’t your forte then the Roomba 637 is the robotic vacuum for you. It’s the standard-setting bot that is perfect for a thorough, everyday clean. With one press of a button (no programming required!) the Roomba gets to work with its patented 3-stage cleaning process.

Balancing the use of vacuum suction and debris extraction, it removes dirt, hair and dust from your carpets, tile, hardwood, and laminate flooring. Even the smallest dust particles are captured thanks to the AeroVac™ Filter.

You might be wondering how a vacuum can navigate itself around your home. Well, it’s smart. Very smart! The Roomba has an iAdapt Responsive Navigation system which uses a full suite of sensors enable the bot to work its way under furniture and around the tight spaces of your room. It’s even clever enough (thanks to cliff-detection sensors) to avoid stairs or ledges that would cause it to fall off.

When it has finished its round of cleaning, it automatically returns to its Home Base® to recharge. Too easy!

iRobot Roomba 890

 

If you’re up for something even smarter, the Roomba 890 is sure to impress you. It has all the impressive features of the Roomba 637 with even greater performance thanks to its AeroForce® 3-Stage Cleaning System.

It also has Tangle-free Dual Multi-Surface Brushes with an innovative design that’s durable enough to grab pet hair and large debris from the floor while reducing hair tangles and brush maintenance. Tick for even more convenience!

Its Edge-Sweeping Brush collects dust from along wall edges and corners too. In fact, the AeroForce® High-Efficiency Filter captures 99% of allergens, pollen, and particles and traps particles as small as 10 microns. How’s that for a healthy home environment?

Now, probably one of the most awesome features of the Roomba 890 is that you can control it from the palm of your hands! That’s right, the Roomba 890 is aboard the app train. Simply download the iRobot HOME App and you’ll be able to unlock a whole world full of features such as:

  • Scheduling your cleaning from anywhere at any time.
  • App-based support for easy access to tips and tricks
  • Status monitoring to let you keep track of your Roomba’s cleaning
  • Pre-set cleaning to automatically clean up to seven times a week
  • Getting notified when your Roomba’s bin is full and needs emptying

 

iRobot Braava 380t

Now this one is a little different because this handy robot is not a vacuum. It’s actually a mop! You can finally toss aside your bucket and the impractical handheld mop for a device that will sweep up to 92m2 or mop up to 32m2 in a single cleaning cycle.

Like its Roomba relatives, the Braava won’t fall off stairs or ledges, and its smart iAdapt® 2.0 with Navigation Cube helps it keep track of where it’s been and where it needs to go.

It’s so simple and easy to set up. Just attach a cleaning cloth, press MOP or Sweep, and Braava will do the rest! It’s compatible with a variety of cloths and pads such as reusable microfiber cloths and disposable cleaning cloths.

The mopping robot is versatile and works on all hard surface floors, including laminate, hardwood, vinyl and tile. It has a triple-pass mopping action to clean up everyday dirt and grime, and sweeps back and forth in straight lines to trap dust, hair and dirt.

So how does it perform? On a single charge it can mop for up to 150 minutes or sweep for up to a whopping 210 minutes!
