At the time of clean the houseRobot vacuum cleaners have become very useful household appliances if we have a model suitable for our home and needs.
In this context iRobot has presented this week two of its most intelligent and powerful new models to date and which, according to the brand, are capable of “responding to some of the most common concerns of consumers.”
This is the two-in-one robot vacuum cleaner and floor scrubber. Roomba Combo j9+ and the robot vacuum cleaner Roomba j9+which according to its creators have been designed with the idea that a robot vacuum cleaner has to be “smart enough to avoid making a mess, complete its work without interruptions and clean the way customers want.”
New Roomba Combo j9+ and Roomba j9+, technical characteristics
The most advanced model presented is the Roomba Combo j9+equipped with the new Clean Base automatic emptying and refilling station that automatically empties dirt and replenishes the robot with scouring liquid.
According to the brand, it is designed to tackle dirt, pet hair and debris thanks to a four-phase cleaning systemdual rubber brushes that double the suction power and pressure scrubbing action.
Those responsible for the product assure that, unlike the classic two-in-one robots on the market that barely lift the mopping cloth, the new iRobot model raises the mopping cloth above the robot when it detects a rug, avoiding getting them wet thanks to the DRI (Dry Rug Intelligence) system.
Using iRobot OS technology the device can create a map of the house and automatically name rooms. It also allows the Roomba Combo j9+ recognize and avoid obstacles such as shoes, cables, backpacks, clothing, pets and solid excrement.
The model adds to its functions the system Dirt Detectivewhich anticipates the cleaning needs of each room in the house, automatically personalizes settings and prioritize the dirtiest rooms based on cleaning history. In addition, its engineers have added the SmartScrub function, which focuses on difficult areas, moving back and forth, while applying downward pressure.
The new model also comes this season with a redesigned Clean Base automatic emptying and filling station that they claim is more efficient than previous versions. Empty dirt during 60 days and fill the liquid during 30 daysincluding space to store additional bags and cloths.
The other model announced this week has been the Roomba j9+very similar to the previous one but this time focused on dust collection, no ability to scrub the ground like his older brother.
According to the manufacturer, it is designed to “thoroughly clean large houses and homes with pets”, thanks to the fact that it promises to have twice the suction power of other models in its range, a longer battery life and more specific functions for pets.
As an example, those responsible for the team have highlighted the Carpet Boost technology, a three-phase cleaning system and two rubber brushes that automatically detects soil type and adjusts its cleaning power to perform different tasks, from sweeping dust to removing pet hair trapped in carpets.
Once cleaning is complete, Roomba j9+ returns to its automatic dirt removal station, where it is automatically emptied for two months. Like Roomba Combo j9+, Dirt Detective allows Roomba j9+ to analyze past cleaning preferences, habits, and schedules, so it can automatically prioritize rooms that need the most attention and customize settings like suction and number of cleaning passes. room by room.
Finally, both models come with Imprint Smart Mapping technology, they can be control with your own voice commands or directly pair with Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri.
