Coinciding with Ecovac’s 5 year anniversary in Australia, the new premium Deebot X1 Family redefines what is possible in a robotic cleaning system.
Spearheaded by its flagship DEEBOT X1 OMNI and accompanied by the DEEBOT X1 TURBO, today’s launch introduces a wide range of breakthrough intelligence and new innovations.
The Deebot X1 Omni sets a new benchmark for home service robotics by featuring Ecovacs’ strongest suction power at 5000Pa, the latest AIVI 3D and TrueMapping 2.0 technologies, its strongest mopping system ever, an all-in-one OMNI station that includes self-cleaning, auto empty and auto water refill, and the industry’s first natural language interactive YIKO AI Voice Assistant. It is all easily controlled through this voice assistant while at home and via the intuitive ECOVACS Home App so that everything can be monitored from your mobile phone while out and about.
Combined with European craftsmanship by the renowned Jacob Jensen Design House, the Deebot X1 Family delivers an unparalleled cleaning experience that is crafted with precision and can take pride of place in your home even as it is controlled from anywhere via your mobile phone.
For over 20 years, ECOVACS has been at the forefront of innovation and design, leading the growth in the home service robotics industry worldwide, and recently celebrating the sale of its 20 million robotic vacuums. Over this time, it has pioneered dual mopping and vacuuming, and driven innovation in intelligent navigation, obstacle avoidance and smart functionality.
“The Deebot X1 Omni is the true culmination of ECOVACS’ decades of learnings in the industry and takes home services robotics to the next level as we strive to bring unparalleled automation, convenience, and benefits into our daily lives,” said Karen Powell, Head of Ecovac Deebot in Australia and New Zealand.
“For the last five years, Australians have embraced Ecovacs as we have introduced new technology to the category and changed perceptions about what is possible with robot vacuums. As such, it feels like a natural next step for Australia to be one of the first countries to be introduced to our new X1 Family, as it reflects our unwavering commitment to keep driving innovation and raising the bar.”
Deebot X1 Omni
Cleaning your floors (and itself) for a truly hands-free experience
The Deebot X1 Omni is the first robotic vacuum cleaner to manage the entire floor cleaning process. Beyond sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping, the new OMNI Station is the first in the world to integrate and automate not only dust collection, but also cleaning of the mop, drying the mop with hot air flow and refilling the water reservoir from its water tank.
The All-in-One Omni Station has a 4L clean/dirty water tank to automatically store the wastewater after cleaning the mop and refilling the water tank in the Deebot X1 with clean water. After each cleaning round, the base station automatically washes the mop and dries it using hot air to remove odours when working in humid environments. Such features enable the Deebot X1 Omni to vacuum and mop longer and delivering a truly hands-free experience.
ECOVACS strongest mopping performance ever
The Deebot X1 Omni features ECOVACS’ strongest mopping system ever – the Ozmo Turbo 2.0 Rotating Mopping System. Mopping pads seen throughout the Ecovacs range have made way for specially designed attachments that vibrate, spin, and maintain moisture efficiently for the ultimate results. The combination of pressure and high-speed rotation of 180 rpm (rotations per minute) have been tested on real-life, stubborn challenges such as coffee and soy sauce stains that have been allowed to solidify and set for three days.
Adding in Ecovacs highest ever suction power of up to 5000Pa, the 4-stage Deep Cleaning System results in a powerful all-round clean with reaching 95% of cleaning efficiency.
Intelligence and innovation combine to deliver an unparalleled mapping experience
Mapping and obstacle detection are two of the most exciting innovations seen in robotic vacuums over the last few years. Ecovacs’ TrueMapping 2.0 technology is found in the Deebot X1 Omni which speeds up mapping and offers a wider field of view.
While previous models have seen ECOVACS’ innovations in AI and 3D obstacle detection separately, the Deebot X1 Omni these learnings with the brand-new AIVI 3D technology, significantly improving the robot’s perception of the environment using laser and visual sensing technologies.
AIVI 3D technology adds a third dimension to household mapping and enables the robots to navigate more precisely across different home environments. It uses the most complex sensor developed by Ecovacs, called an RGBD sensor, that includes HDR dynamic range imaging technology to accurately capture environmental images and semantic information even in dark environments.
The Deebot X1’s decision making process is similar to an autonomous driving car. It is the first time Autopilot technology has been used in home service robots. This technology utilises Horizon GAI chips and dramatically improves the robots’ ability to identify and sense different object types while building three-dimensional information of the environment.
Unlock a Natural Language and interactive voice-controlled experience with YIKO
YIKO is the industry’s first natural language, built-in interactive assistant tailored for home service robots. By combining voice and visual AI algorithms, YIKO enables natural language communication and multimodal interaction. When integrated with the robot functions, intelligent AI voice interaction technologies, and voice semantics from Google, it gives users complete control and enables precise guidance, simplifying complicated household tasks by understanding and implementing user voice instructions.
By saying “OK YIKO, start quick mapping”, users can build a complete map for efficient cleaning. Alternatively, users can ask their Deebot to come towards their voice, vacuum under the sofa, go back to clean the bedroom, and much more. ECOVACS’ YIKO transforms the user experience, turning the Deebot X1 Family from highly intelligent cleaning tools to truly home service robotics.
Jacob Jensen Design turns Deebot X1 into an art piece
The prestigious Danish design company Jacob Jensen Design adds authentic European minimalism into the precision-crafted design of the DEEBOT X1 Family, allowing it to integrate beautifully and seamlessly within your home. This is the first time that Jacob Jensen Design has worked on home service robotics.
With Jacob Jensen Design’s minimalistic ideas, the Deebot X1 Family can take pride of place in your home. While Ecovacs continues to pursue more powerful functions and new technologies, the flagship family also places design and quality as its top priorities to meet customers’ evolving needs in marrying form and function.
Deebot X1 Omni is available in both Black and White.
Deebot X1 Turbo – the mopping expert
The other new member of the new X1 Family, also launching this week, is the Deebot X1 Turbo. The Deebot X1 Turbo shares many features with the Deebot X1 Omni such as Jacob Jensen Design, AIVI 3D and TrueMapping 2.0 obstacle detection and mapping, 5000Pa strong suction power and YIKO assistant. It comes with an alternative docking station that focuses on its mopping effectiveness – ideal for homes with tiles and floorboards.
With a focus on exceptional mopping, the Deebot X1 Turbo station is a smaller version of the OMNI station, and focuses on auto-cleaning the mopping pads, with cool air drying, and refilling of the water reservoir.
Data & Privacy
The Deebot X1 Family also supports 24-hour intelligent movement control. The built-in camera and two-way voice function allow customers to use the Ecovacs Home App to talk to family members, pets and interact using videos.
Ecovacs is committed to protecting user privacy and security. The Deebot X1 Family enables end-to-end data security by integrating software and hardware, adopting asymmetric encryption technology, featuring multiple authentications, and securing personal privacy data. The Deebot X1 Family is the world’s first and only series of robotic vacuum cleaners to obtain the TÜV Rheinland privacy and safety certificate for both software and hardware.
