I found a very interesting robot vacuum cleaner, and it is not from Xiaomi. The new robot vacuum cleaner is called Robomann 361. It has laser navigation, 2200Pa suction power, smart mapping, long battery life, and other features.
You can buy Robomann 361 vacuum cleaner on Amazon for only $150.
OK, let’s do unboxing, look at the design, application, and then run a cleaning test.
You know, I haven’t heard about the Robomann brand earlier, but their robot vacuum cleaner comes in a reliable box.
On the front, we can see the image of the vacuum cleaner and the main features, such as rotating brush, laser, and Wi-Fi.
Inside the box, you will find a user manual and warranty card. Also, there is a robot vacuum cleaner itself, charging base, power adapter, water tank, filter, brush, and side brushes.
By the way, a water tank already has a cleaning cloth.
Yes, Robomann 361 has sweeping and mopping functions. We will test both of them later in this article.
Now, let’s talk about the design of this robot vacuum cleaner.
As you can see, Robomann 361 has a white body with a black panel on the top and edges. I like the combination of white and black colors.
On the top, we can see a Robomann logo, laser module, and power button. You can also use this button to start cleaning.
It is interesting that the dust bin is located on the back. If you want to mop the floor, then you have to remove a dust bin and insert a water tank.
As you can see, a dust bin and water tank have about the same size. However, a dust bin has more capacity – 600ml, while a water tank has 400ml.
The robot vacuum cleaner has a charging port on the right side. The power button is on the bottom.
As you can see, the robot vacuum cleaner has one universal wheel and two driving wheels. These are charging contacts. The side brushes are attached here.
The main brush is removable. You can press these buttons to remove the brush and clean it from hair and other garbage.
Of course, the robot vacuum cleaner has many different sensors. They prevent falls downstairs, minimize trapping, and prevent damage to robots and furniture.
However, the main sensor is on the top. Actually, this is not a sensor, but a new navigation LDS laser navigator. Most budget robot vacuum cleaners don’t have it, but Robomann 361 scans the room 360 degrees and creates maps of the rooms. Later, I will show it to you in the app.
Also, I want to show you the dust bin and water tank. A dust bin has a primary filter and a high-efficiency filter. As I already said, it has a capacity of 600ml.
The water tank doesn’t open. There is only a hole to fill in the clean water. Also, a water tank has a mopping pad.
By the way, a charging base is really small. It is only 175 by 75 by 135 mm. The charging base has an indicator light, signal sensor, charging contacts, and charging port.
So, Robomann 361 looks very good. To be honest, I am a little surprised that the budget robot vacuum has a very good build quality. Actually, it looks more expensive than $150.
Also, Robomann 361 robot vacuum cleaner has good specifications. First, it has a maximum suction power of 2200Pa. In the app, you can change the suction power from 1600 to 2200Pa.
The next feature of this robot vacuum cleaner is smart mapping. You can set virtual walls and exclusion zones in the app on the smartphone.
Robomann 361 supports Google Assistant and Alexa voice control.
In addition, the robot vacuum cleaner has a very good battery life. It is equipped with a 3200mAh battery. The manufacturer promises 120 minutes of battery life on a single charge. When the battery is low, the robot vacuum cleaner automatically returns to the charging base.
As you can see, the application is really important, if you want to use all the functions of the robot vacuum cleaner. Let’s install it and connect the device.
You should know that Robomann 361 supports only 2.4GHz Wi-Fi. So, if you have any problems with the connection of the robot vacuum cleaner to a smartphone, then try to change your router to 2.4GHz.
First, you need to download the Smart Life app on your mobile device.
Then, register an account by phone number or email.
After that, click on the Plus icon in the right top corner, choose the category Small Home Appliance and select Robot Vacuum.
Click on the Confirm indicator rapidly blink, and enter the password from your Wi-Fi network.
Wait for a little, and the robot vacuum cleaner will be connected.
I have already started the cleaning, so you can see the map of my room in the app.
This white line is the trajectory of the vacuum cleaner robot.
It is interesting that the robot vacuum cleaner first walked around the edges of the room, and then used a zig-zag algorithm.
As you can see, the cleaning of my room takes about 8 minutes.
Also, there is information about the cleaning area and battery level of the robot vacuum cleaner.
The first button Smart is to start cleaning.
You can also click on Where to sweep and select a point on the screen to let the robot vacuum cleaner start cleaning from there.
The next function is Area cleaning. Just click Add and choose the area for cleaning.
The last button is to return the robot vacuum cleaner to the charging base.
There is another icon in the right top corner – Set wall. You can click on it to set the restricted area and a virtual wall.
In the settings, there is manual control, reset map, record, timer, suction power mode (mute, normal, and strong), and water tank regulation (first gear, second gear, and third gear).
That’s all the functions of the app!
Before the cleaning test, I want to check the maximum noise level of Robomann 361. As you can see, it is about 58 dB. It is not very loud.
For the cleaning test, I spilled about 100 grams of garbage.
After cleaning, the robot vacuum cleaner collected 85 grams.
You know, Robomann 361 is a budget robot vacuum cleaner of about $150, but it has SLAM and LDS navigation, smart mapping, good suction power, and long battery life. The vacuum cleaner has sweeping and mopping functions.
In the app, you can see the maps of the rooms, set virtual walls, and exclusion zones. You can also change the suction power and water flow.
In general, I really like Robomann 361, because this robot vacuum cleaner has the same functions as its more expensive competitors.
