Samsung's Vacuum Cleaner Robot Can Be Voice-Controlled Using Alexa
Samsung unveiled a new robot vacuum cleaner that can be controlled with voice via the Amazon Echo's Alexa digital assistant.
Samsung POWERbot VR7000
Samsung just announced its new voice-controlled vacuum cleaner robot called the Powerbot VR7000 on the company's blog. According to the company, as long as you own an Amazon Echo you can control the new robot vacuum with your voice.
According to The Verge, the South Korean high-tech giant Samsung has been making robot vacuum cleaners for a while now. The brand is quite popular among customers, even if Samsung's robot vacuum cleaners haven't gotten to the level of popularity as iRobot's Roomba line has.
POWERbot VR7000's Specs & Features
Samsung's latest model of Powerbot vacuum cleaners, the Powerbot VR7000, has been announced by the company this week ahead of CES 2017. The POWERbot VR7000 is 28 percent slimmer than previous Samsung robot vacuum cleaner robots and stands at less than 4 inches tall. Depending on the model you chose, the gadget generates up to 20 watts of suction power. It can clean within a half inch of walls and pass under furniture and beds. The POWERbot VR7000 can work around small items less than 0.4-inch in diameter and remember your room.
The robotic vacuum cleaner requires less maintenance because it comes with a self-cleaning brush system that can reduce significantly the amount of hair and dust that gets trapped in the bristles, according to Samsung. The level of suction is automatically adjusted by an "Intelligent Power Control" feature, based on the surface it's cleaning.
According to PC Mag, Amazon Echo integration is one of the coolest features of the POWERbot VR7000. Users can control the robot cleaner using voice commands when pairing it with an Echo. Those users who do not have an Echo can also remotely control the robot via an app that allows starting and stopping the machine, checking cleaning history and scheduling cleaning times.
