The is a very reliable, easy to use suction and wiping robot. Especially the mapping is very accurate and you can immediately see in which room the vacuum has been. Also, the dry cleaning performance on carpet and hard floors is very good. Only the wiping function leaves a lot to be desired and hardly works at all, as the cloth is not moistened sufficiently. Otherwise, the vacuum cleaner is easy to handle and provides good support in the household.
The is supplied in a descriptively designed carton and has a battery charge of about 40%. The delivery includes a charging station with charging cable, 4 side brushes, brush attachment, normal attachment, 1 reusable microfibre cloth, 5 disposable cloths, cleaning cloth plate, container, filter and an instruction manual.
In the beginning, there are unfortunately stickers on the device, which are difficult to remove with residues.
Commissioning and app connection
The ECOVACS Home app can be found in the Appstore and on Google Play and can be used for several variants of Ecovacs' robot range. How to log in to the app and connect the app to the robot is very well described in the app. If you follow the instructions step by step, the process is quick and easy. The QR code for scanning is located under the lid, where the on/off switch is also located.
You can control the suction in different ways:
- By pressing a button on the vacuum cleaner (auto mode)
- Via App
- Via Amazon Alexa or Google Home
The vacuum cleaner responds to its commands with various signals and melodies, and signals are also given in words. The words are spoken in English by an automatic voice but are clearly understandable. In the app, you can mute the robot and change the robot's language.
In the app, settings such as suction power, water flow rate, auto suction boost, sleep mode, protocols and cleaning schedules can be set. But also more specific settings such as cleaning cloth reminder continued cleaning, accessory use and voice message can be made. You can also search for the vacuum cleaner, which then replies with "I am here".
All these settings are perfectly adapted to the cleaning and usage requirements and achieve an even better result.
At the top of the vacuum cleaner, the camera is located underneath the protection, which scans the room. While the robot is sucking, a map is created that is quite close to reality. Even in places where the robot has not been before, an object can be drawn very accurately. Wall thicknesses can also be displayed, the roadway is shown and the paths are reproduced very accurately with thin lines.
In general, the app is the best control option with the most settings and command options. It is well structured and you can also easily coordinate, select and adjust several vacuum cleaners.
On the device itself, you can only start, stop or return to the station. The vacuum cleaner only cleans in auto mode.
Functions and modes
- Variable suction power (standard, maximum and maximum +)
- Automatic cleaning (structured driving in line mode)
- Wiping function, with the help of the wiper attachment
With the extended range, even more functions can be enabled.
- Area cleaning
- Custom cleaning
- Floor card management
- Timer for specific areas
As soon as errors occur, such as getting stuck or limited functionality due to dust on the sensors, the app notifies you. You can also set the app to send notifications.
We have tested the vacuum cleaner on various surfaces and have found different results.
The comparison pictures compare before standard mode and maximum+ mode.
We first let the robot run in standard mode and then in highest mode. On carpeted floors, the vacuum cleaner cleans rather superficially and a noticeable amount of snippets remain. Nevertheless, the maximum + mode is more thorough and takes more snippets than the standard mode. The result is still very impressive.
The cleaning result is better on hard floors than on carpets. There are hardly any snippets left here that are not collected.
To wipe up dust that has not been sucked in, the wet cloth pulled behind the vacuum cleaner is very practical.
The wiping attachment is equipped with a contact that tells the machine that the attachment is connected. The automatic voice also reflects this knowledge acoustically. The wiper attachment is attached to the vacuum cleaner in a drawer and pulls a cloth behind it, which is automatically wetted with water.
The water is released minimally on the cloth, which is thus permanently moistened. How much water is released can be set in the app. However, we have not noticed any significant difference in different settings. In each mode, it is recommended to first wet the cloth and then apply it. However, very little new water is released and the floor remains almost dry.
Also, this unit does not replace manual dabbling, as it does not go into corners as well and only wipes the floor very gently. In the manual, it is not described that you can also put detergent in the container, but this should not be a problem.
The flap is attached to the attachment by Velcro and can be easily clipped on.
The robot drives carefully and brakes well in front of objects. Nevertheless, small collisions may occur or the robot may feel its way along objects or walls. Since the robot first scans along the wall and registers that it has already been there, the subsequent paths are driven without contact with the wall. Around chair legs, the robot does not clean very precisely and requires manual assistance.
You have to be very careful with cables, as the robot likes to get tangled up in them and hang themselves. This also stops the cleaning process and the vacuum cleaner goes into standby mode.
The vacuum cleaner robot drives its paths very reliably and takes every spot in the room with it. After vacuuming, the robot reliably drives back to its station and recharges itself. If the cleaning is not yet finished, the robot drives off again after charging. The charging station can wind up the cable at the back and is equipped with a non-slip grip at the bottom so that it cannot be pushed away from the vacuum cleaner so easily.
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning the vacuum cleaner is quick and easy. The container can be lifted out of the machine at the top under the flap and easily emptied. The cloth can also be easily washed in the laundry.
The brush can be removed from the device and hair can be quickly removed with the tool supplied.
