The iRobot company announced the expansion of the Roomba robot vacuum cleaner line in the Russian market and introduced the new Roomba i3 +, which is equipped with a smart navigation system, an automatic dust collector cleaning function, and expanded personal cleaning recommendations under the control of the new iRobot Genius Home Intelligence platform.
The new iRobot Roomba i3 +, as well as the iRobot Roomba i7 + and Roomba S9 robotic vacuum cleaners, independently unloads the collected garbage onto the base, which simultaneously serves as a charging station for the robot for up to 60 days. Then, the trash will be stored in a closed bag AllergenLock Clean Base, which consists of a four-layer membrane that blocks allergens by trapping 99 percent of pollen and mold.
Roomba i3 + cleans in straight lines, allowing you to move through multiple rooms within your home, combining hard floors and carpets. If the robot’s battery runs out, Roomba i3 + will automatically charge and resume cleaning until it’s finished.
The manufacturer notes that the Roomba i3 + also features a high-performance filter that traps 99 percent of pollen, mold, dust mites, and cat and dog allergens. The robot’s 3-stage cleaning system consists of two easy-cleaning rubber brushes that work in tandem, counter-rotating for maximum cleaning performance, while a specially designed side brush is responsible for cleaning in corners and along the baseboard.
Paired with Alexa or Google enabled devices, users can control Roomba i3 + using voice commands. Roomba i3 + also supports Imprint Link technology, so it can be paired with the iRobot Braava jet m6 washing robot.
It is expected that the price of the younger model (iRobot i3) will be 30,000 rubles, while the older (Roomba i3 +) – 40,000 rubles.
