Roborock has just announced its latest robotic vacuum cleaner: the Roborock S7 Pro Ultra. A device that strives for efficiency by combining an enhanced Roborock S7 with a drain / cleaning station that aims for maximum autonomy.
In just a few years, robotic vacuum cleaners have made tremendous progress. Simple rolling robots that painfully collected dust while navigating randomly, they are now devices as efficient as a container vacuum cleaner, and that no longer need human interaction to perform the housework for you.
The Roborock S7 Pro Ultra is just one of these latest generation of ultra-autonomous robotic 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 to both Roborock’s experience in robotic vacuum cleaners and the self-cleaning landfill 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 receive an immediate discount of 250 euros. It is therefore sold for 949 euros instead of 1,199 euros. Here’s what this very advanced robot vacuum cleaner promises.
7 weeks of rest: yes, but how?
Roborock knows it well: You always feel a little cheated when the time comes to empty your robot vacuum cleaner. What is the point of buying a device that is able to identify itself and move intelligently in its home if it is to be cared for every week while doing other household chores?
To make its robotic vacuum cleaners even more autonomous, Roborock has designed a dump station that comes with the robotic vacuum cleaner. The one of Roborock S7 Pro Ultra is one of the best of its kind. It has three containers and allows the vacuum cleaner to recharge automatically when the battery is empty.
The largest container is a dust container with a capacity of 2.5 liters: the vacuum cleaner empties its own waste container in 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 needed for the station to automatically clean the vacuum cleaner mop.
That is why this emptying station is called “self-cleaning”: the vacuum cleaner is emptied and filled automatically according to its needs and the cleaning performed. On the user side, you do not 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 landfill would not be of much use if it did not come with a proper vacuum cleaner. The device that the Roborock S7 Pro Ultra offers is actually a (very good) improved Roborock S7.
Roborock has thus more than doubled its absorbency, 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 debris, small and large, is efficiently collected. .
The robot vacuum cleaner also has a sonic vibration mop on the back. This is Roborock’s own technology, called VibraRise, which is capable of performing efficient high-intensity friction and raising slightly to pass smoothly over more fragile surfaces.
Roborock has also improved its autonomy in housing. Like virtually all Roborock 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 home … To then draw a complete map of your home that you can find on your smartphone.
And it is precisely from your smartphone that you can give it precise instructions: whether to clean certain rooms or not, create invisible walls to prevent it from certain rooms, define personal 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 advanced vacuum cleaners. It will be officially available for purchase on July 7 on Amazon at a price of 1199 euros.
But during the first 10 days of marketing, it will benefit from an introductory offer to lower the price by 250 euros. It will therefore be available at the base price of 949 euros.
