iRobot Corps which manufacture consumer robots have launched the Roomba i7+ and Roomba i7 robot vacuum with clean base automatic dirt disposal in India. The Roomba i7+ brings a new level of intelligence and automation to robotic vacuum cleaners with the ability to learn, map and adapt to a home’s floor plan.
Introducing Imprint Smart Mapping, the Roomba i7+ remembers multiple floor plans and room names so users can customise cleaning jobs and direct the robot to clean specific rooms by voice or via the iRobot HOME App. When the Roomba i7+ robot vacuum is finished cleaning, it empties its own dust bin into the Clean Base, which holds 30 bins of dirt, allowing customers to forget about vacuuming for weeks at a time.This enhances the customer experience by eliminating the dusty and dirty mess often associated with emptying vacuum canisters.
“With the ability to learn, adapt to and remember a home’s floor plan, and the introduction of automatic dirt disposal, the iRobot Roomba i7+ represents the most advanced robotic vacuum ever built,” said Colin Angle, chairman and CEO of iRobot. “This robot delivers on the original vision we had when we embarked on the journey to build a vacuuming robot almost 20 years ago.”
Roomba i7+ allows customers to clean specific rooms in the home. Using Imprint Smart Mapping, the Roomba i7+ gets to know the home’s floor plan, giving customers total control to choose which rooms are cleaned and when. The robot learns every room – remembering up to 10 different floor plans – so users can carry their robot to another floor or a separate home, where the robot will recognise its location and clean as instructed.
The Roomba i7+ works with Alexa enabled devices, and is the only robot vacuum that lets users clean specific rooms by name with a voice command1. For example, just say, “Alexa, ask Roomba to clean my kitchen,” and the Roomba i7+ will efficiently find its way to the appropriate room to clean. Once finished, the robot will return to its base to charge and automatically empty its contents when paired with the Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal.
The products will be available in the Croma stores across – Delhi Mumbai and Bangalore and the iRobot products will also be available on Amazon.in
“iRobot is addressing a long-standing customer call by giving Roomba the ability to empty its own bin after each cleaning,” said Jean-Jacques Blanc, general manager and vice president, EMEA, at iRobot. “This enhances the customer experience by eliminating the dusty and dirty mess often associated with emptying vacuum canisters. With the ability to remember the home, clean specific rooms and empty itself when its finished, the Roomba i7+ with Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal quite literally frees customers from every aspect of vacuuming – from start to finish – for weeks at a time.”
The Roomba i7 robot vacuum will beavailable in India beginning 21 February, with a suggested starting price point of Rs 69,900. The Roomba i7+ robot vacuum will also be available for purchase along with the Clean Base, at Rs. 89,900.The Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal sold separately to those who have purchased i7 will retail from Rs 37, 900.
