Battery and operating time
Vacuum cleaners with a powerful battery can clean a large apartment in one cycle. The best is a lithium-ion battery.
Also, this vacuum cleaner has a timer. This function allows you to program the devices to start cleaning at a specific time. After the cycle is completed, it will return to its place on its own. If the device needs recharging during the process, it will remember the place and then continue cleaning from it.
Since the device works autonomously, it can be cleaned even in the absence of the owners of the house. Miele models are equipped with an intelligent navigation system.
These are two cameras, thanks to which the device is oriented in space. It calculates the distance to objects and adjusts its route so as not to collide with them.
Furniture Protection Technology also contributes to this – 10 sensors help to bypass obstacles.
Robot control becomes intuitive thanks to the touch screen. You can also turn on and direct the device using the remote control and mobile application (Mobile Control function). The latter allows you to turn on the device while away from home.
Vacuum cleaners are equipped with a reliable filtration system, which consists of a pre-filter, a dust collector and an exhaust air filter.
The high-performance Air Clean Plus filter keeps dust inside the dust bin, preventing it from getting back into the room. The indoor air remains clean and fresh.
Vacuum cleaners not only pick up dirt particles from the floor, but also hold them securely inside. Side retractable brushes participate in cleaning. They rotate, collecting dust, hair and pet hair. The dirt moves towards the brush roller and is then sucked up by the front opening. Another hole on the other side collects fine dust. Works great on any floor covering.
Choose a robot vacuum cleaner according to the type of room
Before choosing a robo vac cleaner, you also need to take into account the characteristics of the room. Answer the following questions:
- Do you live in a house or an apartment?
- Are there many walls or open space inside?
- Is the floor hard or fluffy?
- If there are carpets, how thick are they?
- If there are thresholds and steps – what is the height?
Robotic vacuum cleaners are not hindered by height differences, different floor coverings, a large number of obstacles in the form of walls and furniture legs. All thanks to the drive, sensors and grooved wheels.
Choice of design robot vacuum cleaner
The selection of a robot vacuum cleaner according to the design parameter is a matter of your taste. Most have a similar appearance. They have a flat, low body with a rounded shape, which manufacturers choose because it reduces the risk of collisions and damage to interior items. In addition to the vacuum cleaner itself, the kit usually includes a charging station, which looks like a concise and compact unit for Miele appliances, as well as a control panel.
Sometimes brushes protrude beyond the contours of the body. For example, Miele’s Scout RX has two retractable rotating side brushes. A control panel is visible on the body, and in the case of a model such as the Scout RX2, there are also two cameras that are part of the navigation system.
The robot vacuum cleaner saves a lot of time on cleaning the apartment. To choose the right one, pay attention to the functionality and characteristics. Pluses will be the inclusion of a timer and the possibility of remote monitoring. Other key features are compactness, long cleaning time, strong suction and quality filters. Miele appliances meet all these criteria.
