Ecovacs Robotics has announced its latest advanced robotic vacuum cleaner. The DEEBOT 900. OK Google or Hey Alexa can set in on its onerous way.

It features ECOVACS’ unique mapping and navigation technology – Smart Navi. This plans and calculates a highly efficient cleaning path unique to the user’s home. It thoroughly and systematically cleans using an interchangeable inlet system to tackle hair, carpets or bare floors.

An ECOVACS App for iOS or Android allows for full remote control of the cleaning process. It can be used to build maps and draw up to 50 virtual boundaries. These restrict the robot from cleaning a specific area and prevent it from wandering off to restricted areas.

DEEBOT 900With the app’s time-scheduling function, users can simply set a time for the robot to clean regularly and choose between cleaning modes for any time slot of any day up to ten times a week.
