The Smartmi brand, which is part of the Xiaomi ecosystem, has officially released the industry's first floor scrubbing robot that performs the "hand washing" function, the Smartmi Floor Scrubbing Robot Pioneer A1. The product will be sold in China at a price of 3399 yuan, but is already available in Europe for less than 500 euros.
Smartmi Floor Scrubbing Robot Pioneer A1 launched: floor scrubbing robot that simulates hand washing
According to official data, the Pioneer A1 has two modes of dry sweeping and floor scrubbing, which is equivalent to having a sweeper, vacuum cleaner and manual scrubber at the same time.
The research and development team of the floor cleaning robot of Smartmi Technology claims to have worked for 2 years and after 5 generations of modifications to the product prototype, it has developed the exclusive "Super Spin TM" cleaning technology, which has innovatively perfected the "wet washing function of the manual scrubber" ".
The Smartmi mop robot adopts an innovative solution with a patented design of the water vapor separation channel and water tank, the industry's first waterproof and wet vacuum cleaner and the self-cleaning system of roller brushes. For the first time we find a series of pioneering innovations that to “hand wash” the floor with clean water and recycle the waste water, without the need for a base station, and the roller brush can also be self-cleaned in real time.
For the rest, Smartmi's robot scrubber uses a high-speed rotating roller brush, can achieve 1600 clean water washes per minute and uninterrupted and precise water control at a minimum of 0,116g per second, so that the roller can always keep the water clean to wash the floor. At the same time, with 4000 Pa suction, it can easily sweep dry and wet waste away, recycle waste water in real time, wash the floor with real running water and achieve the best cleaning effect.
In addition, the 238mm ultra long roller brush in front of the Smartmi mop robot can greatly improve the cleaning efficiency. The product is equipped with two types of roller brushes, a soft-hard brush and a pure soft bristle brush, which can meet the needs of different floors such as wooden floors and ceramic tiles.
While the unique D-shaped fuselage makes clean corners more smoothly without leaving any dead corners. Inside the fuselage we find a super-capacious 600ml clean water tank, a 360ml wastewater tank and a long-lasting 5200mAh battery. In order to maintain the best cleaning effect, the Smartmi mop robot automatically returns to the charging base for a deep secondary cleaning after each cleaning and uses a gentle air-drying roller brush for 8 hours.
The Smartmi floor cleaning robot has three washing modes, including the "light dirt" mode which meets the requirements of daily wet cleaning; the “standard” mode is suitable for the needs of mixed dry and wet waste such as dust and liquid stains; “heavy dirt” mode, suitable for large particles of wet sticky garbage, such as broken eggs, gravy stains and other dirt that needs to be cleaned repeatedly in a fixed spot.
In terms of operation, the Smartmi Floor Scrubbing Robot Pioneer A1 can be remotely controlled using the Mijia APP and supports zoned cleaning. Users can select the area to clean on the map, and can zoom in, zoom out and move around according to their needs.
If you encounter stubborn dirt, on the other hand, you can also choose to clean at a fixed point. After selecting the mode, just click to clean and the robot will take the selected position as the center and the default square area of 1,5 meters * 1,5 meters will perform spot cleaning twice as default. If you want to clean multiple times, you can also choose the number of cleaning times according to your needs, up to 5 times, and automatically recharge after cleaning.
Finally, Smartmi's mopping robot can not only wash the floor, but also maintains the dry sweeping mode of the traditional robot vacuum cleaner. Simply replace the special water tank lid to automatically switch to dry sweeping mode and clean in carpeted environments.
