ECOVACS unveils next generation mopping robot vacuums w/ Alexa voice control

Read more

While Anker has done a great job in the robotic vacuum space, undercutting Roomba and the like, ECOVACS is another one of those companies offering up the technology at a somewhat more affordable price tag. The company’s DEEBOT products cover all your automated vacuuming and mopping needs starting somewhere in the $250 range, give or take.

Today, ECOVACS is announcing its latest lineup of robotic cleaning devices with the next generation DEEBOT products.

Set to officially debut at the 2018 International Home + Housewares Show (IHHS) in Chicago, the new DEEBOT OZMO vacs feature vacuuming and mopping as well Alexa and Google Home compatibility, along with other app-connected features.

There are three new models being introduced known as DEEBOT OZMO 930, 610 and 900. While features vary slightly for each model, it looks as though all three can communicate with Alexa and Google Home offering up voice control to owners. The 900 model doesn’t carry the OZMO subtitle, so you can expect only vacuuming from that one.

While the 610 model does feature Smart Mode tech that creates efficient cleaning routes throughout your home, the 900 and 930 models use Smart Navi and the free iOS/Android app which allow you to create specific paths, barriers and other basic laser scan based rules for your new DEEBOT to follow.

The 900 model also appears to have slightly more advanced options for cleaning modes when it comes to various tasks like picking up “hair, dirt and debris”. But that is likely due to the fact that it doesn’t look like it has any mopping abilities.

For years, our DEEBOT robotic vacuums have led the robotic vacuum overseas’ market, and now U.S. consumers can enjoy the same experience. Our latest DEEBOT models feature industry-leading technology at highly competitive price points, providing retailers with an opportunity to reach customers at different levels as opposed to a one-size-fits-all solution.

The new DEEBOT models are being showed off this month in Chicago at IIHS, but you can expect the first of the three new models to hit store shelves starting in April. Both the DEEBOT OZMO 610 and 930 models will release on April 3rd, 2018, with the DEEBOT 900 dropping on April 18th.
