ECOVACS Raises The Bar In Home Cleaning Robotics With New DEEBOT T20 OMNI
ECOVACS ROBOTICS, the world’s leading service robotics brand and Australian market leader, has today announced the launch of its latest home cleaning innovation, the DEEBOT T20 OMNI. The new addition to ECOVACS’ dual vacuuming and mopping line up raises the bar in home cleaning by combining new and flagship features such as Auto-Mop Lifting and Hot-Water Mop Washing for the ultimate All-in-One DEEBOT that is cleaner, smarter, and more user-friendly than ever before.
In addition to the new Hot Water Mop Washing and the intuitive Auto-Lifting Mop functionality, the DEEBOT T20 OMNI also boasts a mix of other flagship-quality inclusions. Powerful in terms of both cleaning and battery, the DEEBOT is the first in the ECOVACS lineup to incorporate 6,000Pa of suction power alongside a 5200mAh battery to deliver more than four hours of cleaning on a single charge, while also featuring ECOVACS’ strongest OZMOTM TURBO rotating mopping system – a feature only previously seen in ECOVACS’ top-of-the-line X1 Family.
This is also the first time that ECOVACS’ proprietary OMNI station has been made available outside of its X1 OMNI model, ensuring the DEEBOT is able to empty its dustbag, and wash and dry its mop pads as it also recharges, all in one spot and at the same time. Together with ECOVACS’ onboard AI Voice Assistant YIKO, advanced TrueDetect 3D 3.0 Obstacle detection and TrueMapping 2.0 mapping technology, the DEEBOT T20 OMNI is a cleaner, smarter, more user-friendly solution, Like No One Else.
To demonstrate its ongoing leadership in the category and focus on sustained high performance, ECOVACS also partnered with Australian sporting great Jana Pittman, who received the first DEEBOT T20 OMNI in Australia. As the first Australian woman to compete in both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games, then further reinventing herself by becoming a doctor, all while balancing her life with six children, Pittman is the epitome of ‘Raising the Bar, Like No One Else’.
Dr. Jana Pittman commented:
“Our amazing new DEEBOT T20 OMNI from ECOVACS we nicknamed ‘bestie’, because it is just that…..a mum’s best friend! It quickly mapped the house and now quietly speeds around devouring and mopping all the kid and pet mess. Such a blessing.”
Karen Powell, ECOVACS Regional Director for Australia and New Zealand commented:
“As the global leaders in home service robotics, we pride ourselves on constantly raising the bar with each product launch. With our new DEEBOT T20 OMNI we have added new functionality with Hot-Water Mop Washing and Auto-Lifting of Mop Pads, and increased our suction such that it sits alongside our industry-leading OMNI station, YIKO AI Voice Assistant, battery runtime, mopping system and object avoidance technology to deliver a product at under $1800 that we believe is like no one else in the market.”
DEEBOT T20 OMNI
An effortless clean with Auto-lift Mopping and Hot-water Mop Washing
The DEEBOT T20 OMNI incorporates ECOVACS strongest OZMOTM Turbo 2.0 Rotating Mopping System, designed to deliver the ultimate cleaning that tackles even the most stubborn floor stains and achieves up to 99.99% stain removal assurance. This system applies consistent pressure to the floor while the mopping pads are rotating, and effectively removing many common types of stubborn stains, leaving your floors looking spotless and feeling fresh.
Taking convenience and hands-free cleaning another step further, the DEEBOT T20 OMNI removes the hassle of switching between hard floor and carpet cleaning with its state-of-the-art Auto-lift Mopping technology. With an ultrasonic sensor at the bottom, carpets are automatically detected, and mop pads lifted. It also increases the suction power to vacuum dust hidden deep in the carpet, providing a hassle-free cleaning experience.
This can then be further customised via the ECOVACS Home App, should the user want their robot to mop first then vacuum, only mop or vacuum, or even avoid higher-pile rugs. These options allow users to customise their cleaning experience to suit their specific needs, ensuring their carpets and floors are cleaned effectively and efficiently.
Also delivering efficiency is the innovative Hot-water Mop Washing function that heats water to 55℃ to ensure oil, dirt or sticky residues are effectively removed off mop pads for hygiene and easy-maintenance.
A truly hands-free yet sparkling cleaning experience with the all-in-one OMNI Station and powerful performance
ECOVACS prized OMNI Station raises standards for convenience and effective cleaning automation as an all-in-one solution. On top of hot-water washing of the mop pads into 4L clean and dirty water tanks, the OMNI Station also employs Hot Air Drying to prevent any moisture, bacteria or odour build-up. Hands-free maintenance is further simplified by Auto-Emptying the DEEBOT’s onboard dustbin into the station’s 3L dust-bag that ensures hands-free cleaning for up to 75 days.
As well as ECOVACS’ strongest mopping, the DEEBOT also includes ECOVACS strongest suction power at 6,000Pa. Designed with durability in mind, the rubber brush is built to last, ensuring that your vacuum cleaner is always performing at its best. Spiralling blades agitate carpets better providing a deeper clean than ever, and hair tangles are minimised making for a thorough cleaning result.
An even more tailor-made experience is enjoyed thanks to one-click Housekeeper Mode which will instigate intelligent cleaning that adjusts the cleaning parameters according to your unique home environment, habits and preferences. For example, selecting Housekeeper Mode prompts it to automatically perform deep cleaning if it knows the home hasn’t been cleaned in a while, focus on specific rooms if it learns they are more prone to dirt, or automatically adjust suction and water flow if it notices a habit.
Edge cleaning is also improved, powered by automatic body rotation that ensures the mop pads reach right to the edges and other hard-to-reach areas.
Home cleaning gets more intelligent with AI and brand-new breakthroughs.
The YIKO AI Voice Assistant remains an ECOVACS industry-first and is part of the DEEBOT T20 OMNI’s host of trailblazing features. Powered by AI Voice Control, YIKO allows users to interact with DEEBOT with their voice, asking the DEEBOT directly to complete tasks such as initiating a mop, vacuuming a specific area, returning to charger or auto-cleaning.
The DEEBOT T20 OMNI also boasts of TrueDetect 3D 3.0 Obstacle Avoidance Technology. This innovative technology utilises structured light and 3D imaging algorithms to achieve real-time scanning and detection, ensuring strategic avoidance of potential obstacles on the ground such as small toys, wires, and other obstacles. This millimetre-level avoidance is four times more accurate than LDS (Laser Distance Sensors) found in other models and competitors. Alongside this is TrueMapping 2.0 technology which enables the DEEBOT T20 OMNI to precisely map the user’s home in a few minutes. It has a dToF sensor with a scanning range of up to 10m and 7200 Hz. This advanced technology provides four times higher detection accuracy for small objects, ensuring a more accurate and detailed home map.
DEEBOT T20 OMNI: Built to last.
The DEEBOT T20 OMNI is designed to deliver long-lasting performance and efficient cleaning for years. With its powerful 5200mAh battery, it can provide a continuous cleaning service for more extended periods, including more than four hours in the average Australian home.
The DEEBOT T20 OMNI is also built for exceptional agility and mobility. It can easily navigate around every home and recognise thresholds into rooms, ensuring that it doesn’t miss any areas while cleaning. In addition, it can cross obstacles up to 20mm and climb onto most doorsills and carpets.
