C o n s u m e r E l e c t r o n i c s D a i l y N e w s E v e n i n g E x t r a 1 9 W e d n e s d a y, J a n u a r y 6 , 2 0 1 6 ECOVACS ROBOTICS EXPANDS FLOOR CLEANING ROBOT LINE TO SUPPORT CATEGORY DEMAND Ecovacs Robotics, the premier developer and manufacturer of home service robots, expands its Deebot floor cleaning robot line with new products and new technol- ogy. New products were designed in direct response to consumer feedback and to help retailers expand their growing home robotics category. Winbot, a family of window cleaning robots, and the line of Deebot floor cleaning robots, have been show stoppers since their release, sparking a lot of interest and chatter among the media and retailers. "The home service robotics category has grown exponentially in the last sever- al years and is on track to continue. Research and forecasting models show several areas of demand that are yet to be filled with products. Ecovacs is enhanc- ing our Deebot line to support retailers and help them capture this untapped mar- ket," says Mike Hecht, Executive Director of Ecovacs Robotics, Inc. New price points, innovation and technological advancements are featured on Ecovacs brand new Deebot models filling niches that are lacking in the cur- rent marketplace. The recently released Deebot Slim draws fresh consumers into the cate- gory with a satisfying array of tech- nology and cleaning features at an entry-level price point. Deebot Slim, as its name denotes, is a low-profile robotic vacuum that stands only 2.2 inches tall so it easily cleans under furniture where other robots can't. Deebot Slim is simple to operate and maintain, cleans bare floors effective- ly with no-tangle direct suction, auto- matically adjusts to uneven surfaces and can mop, too. It still includes all of the Deebot standard equipment to clean up to and around stairs, detect objects in its path, recharges itself and performs sched- uled cleaning once per day even if nobody is at home, all for a very affordable price. Since its debut in 2014, the Deebot D77 has been very successful. The next generation Deebot D79 elevates this model from a robotic vacuum to a self- emptying, two -in-one cleaning system. The unique Deebot D79 combines an advanced floor cleaning robot with a detachable handheld vacuum and accessories for above floor cleaning furniture and drapes, for instance a combination consumers have never seen. Another innovation consumers have been asking for is included on Deebot D79: the robot empties its own dust bin. Other smart features include dual side brushes, four cleaning modes, hi-tech sensors to clean safely around stairs, avoid obstacles and switch cleaning modes based on detected dust vol- ume. Another Ecovacs product creating new demand is Deebot DM85. Designed to tackle the widest range of floor cleaning jobs, from vacuuming to Smart Clean mopping, the DM85 includes features that enable it to deliver superior perform- ance on virtually any surface. DM85 main brush can be removed, allowing the robot to vacuum up hair without tangling yet still navigate home terrain with ease. The cutting- edge Smart Clean Mopping System allows consumers to sweep, vac- uum, mop and dry their floors in one pass.
