What is a Smart Vacuum Cleaner?

A smart vacuum cleaner, also known as a robotic vacuum cleaner or robot vacuum, uses artificial intelligence and automation technology to clean floors autonomously without human intervention. It typically moves around a space, such as a room or an entire home, using sensors and algorithms to navigate and clean different surfaces, such as carpets, hardwood floors, and tiles.

Smart vacuum cleaners are equipped with various sensors, such as infrared sensors, touch sensors, and cameras, which enable them to detect obstacles, avoid collisions, and navigate around furniture, walls, and other objects in their path. They may also have advanced mapping capabilities that allow them to create a map of the cleaning area to plan the most efficient cleaning routes.


How Does A Smart Vacuum Cleaner Work?

A robot vacuum cleaner can navigate and clean floors autonomously. It uses brushes and high suction power to clean dirt and debris (and even pet hairs) from different surfaces, filters the air to capture dust and allergens, and collects the dirt in a dustbin or dirt compartment. 

Robot vacuum cleaners use a combination of sensors, software algorithms, and obstacle detection technologies such as infrared, cliff, and bump sensors, plus mapping and navigation features to avoid unwanted mishaps (such as knocking down expensive fixtures or bumping into furnitures) while cleaning.

It is powered by rechargeable batteries and may automatically return to its charging dock when its battery is low. It can be controlled through a remote control, smartphone app, or voice commands with virtual assistants. Most robot vacuum cleaners also come equipped with a built-in mop for a thorough cleaning session. Aside from their functionality, these vacuum cleaners also only require easy and cheap maintenance for optimal performance. 

They come in different shapes and sizes and are usually customisable with adaptors you can install later on. Our team at Dreame - pioneers of this innovative tech - offers a range of robot vacuum cleaners with mops and other adaptors, such as the Dreame Bot L10S, the Dreame Bot W10, and the Dreame F9!

Having done sufficient research on this cleaning tech, here are some pros and cons of a smart vacuum cleaner for your home.

Now For Some Cons… 

While robot vacuum cleaners are equipped with sensors to detect obstacles, they may not always be perfect at avoiding collisions or getting stuck. 
They may require some supervision and occasional intervention to untangle from cords, free themselves from tight spaces, or get past certain objects that act as obstacles in their cleaning routes.
Smart robot vacuum cleaners can also be more expensive than traditional vacuum cleaners, with prices depending on the brand, features, and capabilities. 
Higher-end smart vacuum models with advanced technology may come with a higher price tag. BUT, here at Dreame, we cater to all customers - even beginners on a budget!
