Smart cleaning!


I love smart technology, particularly those devices that make your life easier such as robot vacuums! However when a robot vacuum combines mopping into one device, well then, where do I sign-up for this amazing product? Introducing the “All-New Amazing” Ecovacs Deebot OZMO 950 which does just that… it vacuums and it mops!

Highlights

  • 2-in-1 Vacuuming & Mopping Robot with high-cleaning efficiency
  • Smart Navi 3.0 laser mapping for a systematic, customised clean
  • Up to 3 hours of continual runtime
  • Multi-floor mapping
  • 3 Levels of suction power for superior clean on both hard floors & carpets

Apart from smart technologies that allows the Ecovacs Deebot OZMO 950 to detect carpets and rugs, it supports simultaneous vacuuming and mopping, boasts an impressive battery and has smart assistant features that allows you to commence cleaning by your voice, courtesy of Alexa.

Like previous units from Ecovacs, the circular shaped device looks like something out of Star Wars as it silently moves around your home, cleaning and cleaning… it’s just missing the R2D2 sounds. While you can start the vacuum mop with a touch of a button, you do need to download the accompanied app. The app is quite easy to use, including setting up virtual boundaries where you don’t want the Deebot to go.

In terms of setup, Ecovacs gives you everything you need to make the installation process a relatively simple one and we were probably up and running in around 10 minutes. This included removing the OZMO 950 from the box, installing its relevant accessories (side brushes) and then downloading the app and then linking it to our robot helper.

Ecovacs state that battery of their OZMO 950 will last 200 minutes which is far superior than previous models and charging can take up to 5 hours. To charge, the Deebot will return home to its charging dock and neatly place itself into the dock for some much needed electricity. You can also force the Deebot back to charge via the app as well and this clever robot even talks to you when it starts cleaning or its returning to charge.

The first clean of your house maps your home thanks to its advanced multi-floor mapping that allows you to save three maps. As a result and depending on size of your home (or office), it creates zones that allows you to select which zone you want cleaned or the entire home. There’s  a sensor on top of the OZMO 950 with laser technology that with the brushes creates its uncanny ability not to crash into objects.

Inside the Deebot is a small removable dustbin which is used for vacuuming plus a water reservoir to mop the floor, including tailored attachments for your situation at home. This reservoir allows for four different levels that include low, medium, high or ultra-high. Low is for a quick clean, whereas ultra-high allows for a deeper mop. While the dustbin (think soft drink can) is relatively small at 430mm, you’ll be surprised as to  how much dirt it picks up.

For mopping, there are a couple of options which include using the reusable microfiber cloth or disposable cleaning clothes that easily allow you to attach to the bottom of the Deebot. In terms of vacuuming suction, there are four modes that include quiet, standard, max and max plus. Once again, quiet is great for a quick clean (or at night), whereas max plus is for a stronger clean and will exhaust the battery faster but do a far better clean.

While the Deebot can get stuck at times, including getting a little too close to smaller rugs, you need to ensure that things are not in its path such as shoes or toys and if smaller rugs are being mistaken for floors, the virtual boundaries can solve this issue. Needless to say, these problems can easily be solved and overall, Ecovacs have really upped the ante with their latest model.

Final Thoughts?

With a one-year limited warranty, the Ecovacs Deebot OZMO 950 is indeed a smart cleaner that not only performs well but incorporates additional smart technology well into its persona. Just be warned that all this cleaning and smart goodness does come at a cost which is $999AUD (March 2020) but very well worth in our opinion.
