The first time he goes still a bit aimlessly in zigzag through the apartment (you should open every door, because it scans the ground plan!), But erkling after the 3rd / 4th Cleaning that "The learning mode is finished". Then he drives very much oriented than before. It may well be driving style seem a bit random, but if you watched him closely, however, you recognize an intelligent system behind it.
The unit has a total of 3 automatic modes, as well as a remote control for manual control:
- Zigzag mode: so
- Spiral Mode: The device runs a circle of about 2 m in diameter, at the center beginning; suitable for small or very dirty rooms!
- Cell-by-Cell Mode: The device is actually running from small squares
If during the automatic cleaning the battery is running low, or on the remote control / touch pad of the device, the corresponding button is pressed, the instrument goes back automatically to the base (Warning, this should not be changed!)
Because of its nearly square shape and the forward protruding, rotating brushes it comes in almost all corners. He also drives up to walls close enough.
In addition, it overcomes most of carpets. However, longer carpet fringe are rather unfavorable.
The device has a very clear, female voice that informs what the unit is doing (start, return) or what the device just bothers (bogged down, disturbing foreign body). In addition, a series of tones will sound when it starts up or explains the cleaning ended.
The background noise is very low.
The cameras / sensors:
He realizes very well walls to low obstacles (2-3cm height) he ignored due to increased camera / sensor location.
Also on two floors, he copes very well. If he goes on a stair, he detects this and moves back - that is, it does not crash.
Very easy removal of dust container (plastic, not a bag).
Generally very easy to clean.
We have the Hombot for about 4/5 weeks, do not want to miss it!
