Ecovacs Robotics DEEBOT X1 OMNI review

I was faced with a crisis – an imminent inspection of my unit, two messy children and no time. But a knight in shining armor saved the day.

I got the call that no renter wants to get. It was time for another inspection.

With a busy work schedule and a newborn baby keeping me busy, time ran out quickly. There were two young children in the house and the floor was getting messier by the hour.

I had a serious problem with my hands.

Ecovacs Robotics DEEBOT X1 OMNIA

Three weeks earlier, I received a notification that technology company Ecovacs Robotics had released its latest flagship robovac, complete with a vast array of groundbreaking intelligence and new innovations.

“It’s like a personal butler,” my source told me. “Would you like me to send you a unit to assess?”

Yes, absolutely, I did.

The DEEBOT X1 OMNI . Set up

Setting up the device was very easy.

Basically I unpacked the robovac, clicked on the side brushes, downloaded the app and turned on the device.

I also had to fill the clean water tank to mop. The whole thing took less than five minutes.

Our new friend YIKO

After installing the app, we were introduced to YIKO, the industry’s first built-in natural language interactive assistant, tailor-made for home service robots.

She immediately became best friends with my three-year-old.

Using intelligent AI speech interaction technologies and speech semantics from Google, it gives users complete control and enables precise guidance.

Basically, YIKO can understand and implement the user’s voice instructions.

By saying “OK YIKO, start mapping quickly”, you can create a complete map for efficient cleaning.

You can also instruct him to vacuum under the couch or clean the bedroom.

Nice way to clean

YIKO was a source of joy in the home, especially for children under the age of four.

I used it as a learning exercise and said to my daughter, “Let’s clear the blocks so YIKO can easily clean the house!”

I was also tempted to put the portable Bluetooth speaker on top of the DEEBOT X1 OMN like Tom in Parks and Recreationinstantly transforming YIKO into “DJ Roomba”.

That will have to wait another day.

How did it go?

The DEEBOT X1 OMNI picked up pretty much everything, dust, lint and the stray grain of rice. Finally I could walk barefoot on the wooden floors without that annoying feeling of dust on my feet.

I was also very happy with the way it handled electrical cords – it stayed well away from them.

Somehow it seemed smarter than previous versions of robovac I’ve come across.

Ecovacs Robotics says the technology combines AI and 3D obstacle detection, significantly improving the robot’s perception of the environment using laser and visual detection capabilities.

It also uses AIVI️ 3D technology to add a third dimension to household mapping, allowing the robot to more accurately navigate different environments in the home.

Basically the robovac is on autopilot, all powered by the Horizon GAI chip.

Sleek design with powerful suction

The gray and black finish of the robovac and charging station is futuristic and impressed me.

The Danish company Jacob Jensen Design was deeply involved in the design and you can see the impact through the minimalist aesthetic.

And here we come to what makes the DEEBOT X1 OMNI so special. It can manage the whole floor cleaning process. Not only sweeping, vacuuming and mopping, but also cleaning the mop, drying the mop with hot air flow and refilling the water tank from the water tank.

After the cleaning session is complete, the base station automatically washes the mop and dries it with hot air to remove odors.

The ECOVACS has the highest suction power ever up to 5000 Pa and also uses the OZMO️ Turbo 2.0 rotary mopping system, with pads specially designed to vibrate, rotate and trap moisture efficiently.

a happy ending

How did the inspection go?
I’m happy to say I’m not homeless. We passed the test with flying colors, thanks in large part to the DEEBOT X1 OMNI.

For years, we’ve been promised that technology makes your life easier.

This robovac can save you hours that you would have spent cleaning. Finally the future is here.

The DEEBOT X1 OMNI (Black) is available from Bing Lee, Godfreys, JB Hi-Fi, The Good Guys and for $2499 (RRP).

It’s simply the best robovac on the market and definitely a steal from me.
