Review: DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI robot vacuum cleaner Review: DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI DESIGN PERFORMANCE FEATURES ISSUES PRICE & AVAILABILITY OVERALL
Ecovacs Robotics offers a range of advanced AI-driven robot vacuum cleaners, and my house is currently being cleaned by the DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI. This robot uses Artificial Intelligence to identify obstacles and avoid them, increasing the chances of a successful clean. This addresses one of the biggest issues of living with a robot vacuum.
After using many of these autonomous cleaning robots, I’ve often come home to it being stuck on a sock, or it trapped in the bathroom with a flat battery, after clearly closing the door on itself.
Thanks to a new level of laser-based mapping and navigation, the way the robot routes its way around your home to clean, is as efficient and effective as the cleaning performance. What’s great about this robot, is the on-board camera is available to you through the mobile app. Obviously having a robot with a camera and microphone roaming your home could create some security concerns, so Ecovacs enable you to restrict the feed with a pin.
Not only can you see the video feed from your mobile, you can also control the robot using an on-screen overlay to go forward, back, and rotate left and right. This opens up potential applications far greater than what’s typically available from a vacuum. You could, for example, use the robot to patrol your home when you’re away and start to look at this as a security device, which also happens to clean.
Another challenge for some robots is battery life, with many needing to return to charge mid-clean when operating in larger homes. Thanks to a massive 3 hours of battery life, this will have no problems cleaning the whole home. While it lacks the dust extraction bin integrated into the charging bay of the premium models, this is a more affordable offering that lands at an appealing price point.
By way of technology, the DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI features ECOVACS’ optimised AIVITM (Artificial Intelligence and Visual Interpretation) Technology, TrueMapping Mapping and Navigation Technology, and advanced mopping and vacuuming performance, for a thorough and intelligent cleaning experience.
The combination of these features results in a robot that can map the home environment much faster, and with greater precision than current platforms, while detecting and avoiding common household objects in the process.
