Roborock has just announced its latest robot vacuum cleaner: the Roborock S7 Pro Ultra. A device that goes for efficiency by combining an improved Roborock S7 with an emptying/cleaning station that aims for maximum autonomy.
In just a few years, robot vacuums have made enormous progress. Simple rolling robots that painfully picked up dust while navigating at random, they are now devices as efficient as a canister vacuum cleaner and which no longer need human interaction to do the housework for you.
The Roborock S7 Pro Ultra is precisely one of these latest generation ultra-autonomous robot vacuum cleaners. Roborock talks today about a vacuum cleaner with an autonomy of about 7 weeks without having to touch it. This record autonomy does not come out of nowhere, it is due both to Roborock’s experience in the field of robot vacuum cleaners and to the self-cleaning dump station sold with the vacuum cleaner.
The Roborock S7 Pro Ultra will be available on Amazon from July 7th. During the first 10 days of marketing, the robot vacuum cleaner will benefit from an immediate discount of 250 euros. It will therefore be sold for 949 euros instead of 1,199 euros. Here is what this very high-end robot vacuum cleaner promises.
7 weeks of tranquility: yes, but how?
Roborock knows it well: you always feel a little cheated when the time comes to empty your robot vacuum cleaner. What’s the point of buying a device capable of identifying itself and moving intelligently in its home if it has to be taken care of every week, at the same time as other household chores?
To make its robot vacuum cleaners even more autonomous, Roborock has designed a dump station that comes with the robot vacuum cleaner. That of the Roborock S7 Pro Ultra is one of the best of its kind. It has three bins and allows the vacuum cleaner to recharge automatically when its battery is empty.
The largest bin is a dust bin with a capacity of 2.5 litres: the vacuum cleaner empties its own waste bin into it. They then end up in a bag that the user very easily empties once every seven weeks or so.
The other two tanks are water tanks, one for clean water and the other for dirty water. The clean water tank supplies the vacuum with water for mopping. As for the last tank, it contains the dirty water that was necessary for the station to automatically clean the mop of the vacuum cleaner.
This is why this emptying station is called “self-cleaning”: the vacuum cleaner empties and fills automatically according to its needs and the cleaning carried out. On the user side, you don’t even have to monitor the station yourself as it sends you a notification on your phone when it needs you.
A powerful and intelligent robot vacuum cleaner
This dump station wouldn’t be much use if it didn’t come with a proper vacuum cleaner. The device that equips the Roborock S7 Pro Ultra offers is in fact a (very good) Roborock S7 improved.
Roborock has thus more than doubled its suction power, going from 2500 Pa to 5100 Pa. On the brush side, there is a central rubber brush and a side brush to ensure that all dust and waste, small or large, are effectively picked up. .
The robot vacuum also has a sonic vibration mop on the back. This is Roborock’s own technology, called VibraRise, capable of performing effective high-intensity friction and raising slightly to pass smoothly over more fragile surfaces.
Roborock has also improved its autonomy within housing. Like virtually all of Roborock’s vacuum cleaners, the Roborock S7 Pro Ultra has a laser rangefinder. This allows him to see (even at night) and identify the main obstacles and furniture that stand up in the accommodation… To then draw a complete map of your accommodation that you can find on your smartphone.
And it is precisely from your smartphone that you can give it precise instructions: whether or not to clean certain rooms, create invisible walls to prohibit it from certain spaces, define personalized cleaning programs by room, time of day, uses and even suction power, etc. You can even command it out loud because the Roborock S7 Pro Ultra is compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri.
Available July 7 on Amazon
Complete, autonomous and intelligent, the Roborock S7 Pro Ultra is one of the brand’s most high-end vacuum cleaners. It will be officially available for purchase on July 7 on Amazon at a price of 1199 euros.
But during its first 10 days of marketing, it will benefit from an introductory offer to lower its price by 250 euros. It will therefore be available at the floor price of 949 euros.
