These days, it’s pretty common to see a robot vacuum cleaner in someone’s home. This is because over the years, ever since the tech was first introduced, prices of these gadgets have been dropping where you can now grab a very basic robot vacuum for much less than when it was first introduced.
Now, if you’re looking for a robot vacuum and mop but want to go all out and get the best model possible, then you’re probably prepared to spend some money on it. The good news is that thanks to the upcoming Black Friday sales, you won’t have to break the bank in order to get the top-of-the-line model like the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI Black Friday Best Deal.
Black Friday Sale
As Black Friday approaches, the folks at ECOVACS will be running a promotion for the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI. The robot vacuum and mop an all-in-one OMNI station would normally cost you $1,549.99, but as it is Black Friday and with the goal of having many households enjoy truly hands-free cleaning, the company is offering customers a very, very generous 35% discount on it.
This will knock the price down to a hair under $1,000 at $999.99, making this an incredible steal! Granted it’s still not the cheapest robot vacuum we’ve seen, but considering all the features (which we will highlight below), this is an absolute winning deal and makes the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI a must-have robotic floor cleaning system we’ve seen today for the specs and features that you’re getting.
Intuitive voice commands
While there are plenty of robot vacuums that recognize simple voice commands to start their cleaning cycles, ECOVACS has taken things to the next level with YIKO.
This is the only robotic vacuum and mop that has built-in voice command system so cleaning is as convenient as saying “Ok YiKO, clean the kitchen.” It also uses a precise voice locator so it can determine where to clean when you say “Ok YIKO, clean here” rather than having to open the app and manually select an area on the map to tell the vacuum the precise location clean.
The YIKO voice controls are industry-leading, allowing the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI to truly shine.
Self-emptying and hypo-allergenic
With some lower-end robot vacuums, you would need to manually empty out the vacuum bag when it’s done after a single clean. With the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI, that will not be necessary. This is because the charging station also acts as a storage system where all the dust and debris the robot has collected will be self-emptied and stored in a hypo-allergenic dust bag that auto-seals so that no dust escapes the air.
The dust bag can hold up to 3L worth of dirt and debris which means that you could go for months on end without having to empty it out, thus cutting down on maintenance and upkeep and making the whole process a little less painful. The emptying process from the vacuum to the dust bag also takes as little as 10 seconds meaning that the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI has very little down time.
Mopping is also included
In addition to vacuuming, the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI comes with OZMO™ Turbo Dual-Mop system. This allows users to not only sweep their floors but give it a nice deep clean to help scrub out stubborn stains. While other products in the market have a flat mop attachment, this one has dual rotating mop to make sure it captures every sticky dirt and grime on the floor. The OMNI station automatically washes the mop heads and dries them with hot air to prevent mold from growing and also prevent unwanted damp smells. The station also houses a tank of water where if the robot runs low on water mid-clean, it can go back to the station and top itself up before getting back to work.
It can hold 4L of clean water and it also has another 4L tank where the waste water can be kept, so you can rest assured that the water being used to mop your floors is always clean and fresh. The charging station can also clean the mop attachment with hot air that helps dry the mop to prevent mold from growing and also prevent unwanted damp smells.
Smartest navigation and obstacle avoidance
What good is a robot vacuum if it isn’t smart enough to navigate its way around your house and the various obstacles, right? With the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI, the company has equipped it with dToF technology which uses a light pulse to help the robot map your home and create the most systematic and fastest cleaning paths. You can rest assured of wider cleaning coverage and fewer missed spots.
It also helps the robot create a 3D map of your home where you can include furniture and store it in its memory and so in the future, it will be faster and more efficient when it comes to cleaning the various rooms in your home.
The company has also included tech like AIVI 3D, an AI and visual system combined with 3D laser technology, that can recognize obstacles above 2 inches in front of it, like raised cables, shoes, table/chair legs, and more. Once it recognizes obstacles on the floor, the robot is able to avoid these obstacles and continue uninterrupted cleaning without getting entangled. With all this technology included, ECOVACS claims that detection distance has been increased by as much as 50% and it can now do a better job at recognizing smaller objects.
