The vacuum cleaner robot Housmile - Robotic Vacuum Cleaner reliably fulfils its purpose but needs several attempts to get a spot clean. The vacuum cleaner switches back and forth between three modes, taking each surface with it and gradually cleaning it. A disadvantage is the low capacity of the dirt container.
The vacuum cleaner robot Housmile - Robotic Vacuum Cleaner is in a simple packaging, which is functionally illustrated. The operating instructions describe how to handle the device in 4 languages.

The robot is black and in a handy format.
The vacuum cleaner initially runs in random mode.
In the subsequent cleaning process, the vacuum cleaner begins to install the gyro mode again and again until it collides with something. It also uses the edge mode from time to time, but then bends off and does not drive through the entire room. The random mode is used very frequently.
In order to remove more stubborn dirt from carpets, the vacuum cleaner must drive over the areas several times to clean the floor thoroughly. It is advisable to let the vacuum cleaner drive through the rooms frequently to ensure good cleaning.
Even smooth floors must be treated several times until a dirt-free result is achieved.
Surfaces that are higher than two centimetres cannot be climbed by the vacuum cleaner and it perceives them as edges. Therefore, one must lay transitions at higher thresholds or let the rooms vacuum individually.
At this height, the vacuum cleaner does not notice any danger of falling and simply drives along small edges.
The vacuum cleaner easily detects larger steps and moves along the edge of the step so that no uncleaned areas remain.
The shock protection protects the machine from strong vibrations. The vacuum cleaner has no object detection and does not stop beforehand.
Since the dirt container only has a capacity of 100 ml, the vacuum cleaner must be emptied regularly. This is easily done without having to lift the suction cup at the lid of the suction cup.
The light flashes red during charging. If the robot is in use, it lights up blue. As soon as the battery is empty, the lamp starts flashing red. A charging process takes about 4 hours.
A full battery lasts about 110 minutes. Every half hour it falls into a standby mode, from which it can be released by pressing a button and it continues to suck.
