iRobot has become a synonym for quality when it comes to manufacturing robot vacuum cleaners that are powerful and capable enough to make your life easier and exclude you from the need to go around your house and clean it by yourself. Why waste your energy in your free time for doing something that can be done by a compact and feature full robot, which is incredibly smart and way quicker than you.
Today I’m going to make a detailed overview of the Roomba 980 and present you with his best parts but also the parts that can be considered as drawbacks in order to make you more informed as I always do.
The Roomba 980 matters thirteen point eight inches in diameter 3.6″ in height and weights around 8.7 pounds. Making it a pretty compact and lightweight device for entering in tight places where most of the robot vacuum cleaners simply give up. The 980 features the circular design that is covered in a glossy black and silver finish that sits at the intersection of black and brown. It looks really futuristic when you see it and if I flip it over you can notice that there is one dump in a floor tracking sensor two main 6.2-inch rotating brushes and a spinning sized brush.
The dustbin and its rotating brushes are removable so you can clean them quickly, effectively and then pop them back in without any problem. At the top, there is a small nut that houses a camera that is pointed forward and up but there are also three buttons such as one large circular clean button that is accompanied by two smaller buttons known as home and spot mode. When you press the clean button the Roomba 980 will produce a smooth sound and in for me, that is ready to start the cleaning session so you will be always informed about its current state.
This robot vacuum cleaner is Wi-Fi enabled and is compatible with Amazon Alexa and with the Google assistant, which means that you can control it by using your speech. By saying start, stop or dock, this vacuum cleaner will do everything respectively. So, you can lay in your bed and chill while the rumor will start cleaning and exclude you from the need to be around it. You can also take advantage of the iRobot home app that is compatible with Android and iOS so you can download it for free and use all of the included options for maximizing your comfort as much as possible.
The Roomba 980 uses the iAdapt 2.0 navigation with visual localization technology, which makes the robot navigate and clean your whole home on its own. This technology works by building a map of the environment that the robot is going to clean and also keep a track of its location so we’ll always know where it is located.
Moreover, the included camera is going to identify and recall objects while is tracking sensor will deliver an accurate and robust map of your house. The second technology that is used by the Roomba is the arrow force cleaning system with carpet boost, which helps the robot to remove dirt debris and pet hair with up to 10 times more air power for ensuring that your house will be really clean. This technology is capable of capturing up to 99% of all the allergens, pollen and particles as small as 10 microns so you will notice that the air and your health will be improved.
The Roomba 980 is very easy to use. Just download the iRobot app and then this device will automatically detect your Wi-Fi network and ask you if you want to connect it then enter the Wi-Fi password and you’re ready to witness its power. Once connected you can notice that the main screen features a big clean button that looks like a physical button position at the top, which serves for activating the cleaning mode as the name says. By using a smart tab, you can start or post cleaning cycles turn on push notifications for receiving real-time notifications, select custom cleaning preferences, make schedules for any day of the week and much more. If you choose the clean map option from the smart app you will be given a full report of where your robot is cleaned for having a greater intuitive experience.
You will also get regular updates for keeping you up to date so you shouldn’t worry about anything. I want to also mention that the Roomba sensors are extremely advanced because they help you in two ways. The first is that they will prevent the robots from falling or tumbling over which makes it really secure and secondly, they will make the robot able to even go under and around your furniture for cleaning every dirt exist.
In the Roomba’s package also includes two on most virtual walls barriers to
If you consider that it automatically detects different floor surfaces and optimize the suction port for providing the best possible cleaning then I think that this shouldn’t be a really big deal.
The battery life is expected to last run two hours and it is pretty straightforward to because it will post yellow if we have to short the robot or green when it is fully charged and ready to use. The resource or a treasure I can for informing you when the dustbin is full so you should react it respectively. In addition, the two-hour battery life is not static because it may vary due to the mods you’re using. If you use those who require more power the battery life will drain faster and vice-versa.
Overall the Roomba 980 is worth of attention because it is extremely powerful and includes plenty of features that will make your house be really clean. Maybe the price isn’t cheap but this robot vacuum cleaner justifies its price tag by work incredibly well. So, if you ever decide to purchase it you will assure yourself of the potential and the given benefits.
