Ecovacs Deebot 930
Robot vacuums have been helping households all over the world. And they’ve been keeping your floors and carpets dust and pet hair-free. However what do you do if you want to actually to do a deeper clean? Unfortunately, previous robot vacuum cleaners actually only did dry work. The thought of having a machine mop your floors was something that wouldn’t happen till later into the future. However in the last few years, there have been more robot cleaners that are combining vacuuming and mopping into one machine. Welcome Ecovacs Deebot 930.
Known as Ecovacs Robotics’ smartest robot vacuum yet, its ability to do wet and dry cleaning is something that we don’t get to see very often. And that’s especially true for mid-range robot vacuums. And what makes this particular model pretty special is the fact that the robot has technology that can easily figure out what’s carpet and what’s hard flooring. So you won’t need to worry about the robot accidentally drenching your carpet during a cleaning session.

As we’ve previously mentioned, the Ecovacs Deebot 930 is one of the brand’s smarter robots. And it’s obvious when it comes to the app that controls the machine. Instead of using and potentially losing a remote, your controller will be in the comfort of your smartphone. While there have been reviews that critique the issues with the app, it does work quite well after it’s fully set up. After getting the app, you’ll need to let the Ecovacs Deebot 930 start mapping out your home or the parts of the home that you’ll expect to be cleaned. But since it’s the first time that your robot will be going through your home, there’s a good chance it will bump into furniture. While that will make you think twice about it, that problem should go away once it’s gotten the map recorded.
And once the floors are mapped out, then you can let it clean on its own. You can also decide which areas need cleaning and which can be left alone. Despite how well its cleaning power is, there are a number of issues that may you think twice. First of all, this robot likes to talk. From telling you when there will be a new cleaning cycle or announcing that its put the the cleaning on pause, this is one of the more chatty robots. Also, the robot is completely controlled either by manually pressing buttons on the vacuum cleaner itself or by using your app. If you prefer external remotes, then unfortunately this isn’t for you. And finally because of the Ecovacs Deebot 930’s ability to do many different tasks, the battery life doesn’t last very long considering how long you need to actually charge it. But at least once the battery is low, the Ecovacs Deebot 930 knows to go back to its charger.
