If you have never seen a robot vacuum in action, get ready to be amazed! The Samsung POWERbot R7065 takes robot vacuuming to a whole new level. This robot vacuum is futuristic with its sleek design and user friendly smartphone remote control app. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, though. The Samsung POWERbot R7065 has several features that deserve recognition.
What’s Special About the POWERbot R7065?
First of all, who wants to spend their free time vacuuming? I don’t know of anyone who wants to do that, so why not let the Samsung POWERbot R7065 robot vacuum cleaner handle the vacuuming for you? Here are some great features the POWERbot provides for your vacuuming needs.
This robot vacuum cleaner delivers 40x more powerful cleaning when compared to most robot vacuums. You can even select the level of suction power that is needed for the area being vacuumed. The quiet level measures around 60 decibels which means you can carry on a conversation while the vacuum is working.
The turbo level is a bit louder at close to 70 decibels. Although you can still talk above the robot cleaner, it is a bit more difficult and you have to talk pretty loud in order to be heard.
The benefits of the turbo level outweigh the noise level, however. This robot vacuum will pick up every last bit of dirt and debris in turbo mode ensuring a spotless floor at the end of a cleaning cycle.
One of the best features of the POWERbot R7065 is the ability to control the vacuum remotely from your smartphone. You can even control it through voice enabled devices such as Bixby, Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
You can download the Samsung SmartThings application onto your phone and control your robot vacuum when you are not even at home!
Programming and Scheduling
You have to use the SmartThings application in order to program the POWERbot R7065 vacuum. The initial setup to connect the SmartThings app to the actual vacuum is cumbersome and tedious. Once you configure the vacuum cleaner, however, you can use the app to stop or start the robot cleaner or even direct it manually.
The robot vacuum can be scheduled to run once or daily. You can have it repeat a cleaning cycle, check on the battery life or activate spot cleaning. Your options are essentially endless once you have your SmartThings application connected to the POWERbot vacuum.
Unlike some robot vacuums, the POWERbot R7065 is made for cleaning all types of floor surfaces. It automatically detects when it is transitioning from a hard floor surface to carpet and has intelligent power control to provide the appropriate boost needed for ideal suction power. It adjusts the cleaning action based on the type of surface detected to ensure thorough cleaning for every room in the house.
The POWERbot has an onboard camera and multiple sensors to help it create the ideal cleaning path for multiple room cleaning. It has EasyPass wheels which more smoothly over obstacles and allow seamless transitions from hard floors to carpet.
It detects edges so an innovative rubber blade can automatically extend out to clean those hard-to-reach corners and edges along the wall.
If you have pets that leave hair all over your floor, the POWERbot R7065 will pick it all up with no effort. You can save hours of time each week with this robot vacuum cleaner giving you time to do other things that are more important.
Price Tag and Warranty
The biggest downside of the POWERbot R7065 is the price tag. It retails for close to $600, which is a lot of money to invest in a robot vacuum for some people. The 1-year warranty does provide some peace of mind, however, it still does not reduce the sticker shock. You will definitely need to weigh the pros and cons of this robot vacuum and decide if the time you will get back is worth the extra dollars you will pay.
The POWERbot has so many features it is hard to cover them all. Here are some additional talking points we do not want you to miss:
- The POWERbot has a clear dust bin on top so you can see when it is full.
- It includes a washable filter to ensure the vacuum continues to work effectively for a long time.
- The self-cleaning brush automatically removes hair tangles around the brush head. This is great for pet owners!
- The POWERbot automatically docks to recharge and will resume cleaning at its last location once it is fully charged again.
The POWERbot R7065 is a sophisticated next-generation of robot vacuum cleaners. Its powerful suction capabilities partnered with the full sensory view cleaning path makes this a vacuum that is hard to beat.
As with any good product, however, there are always some items that are not as appealing. Here are the pros and cons we’ve compiled to help you decide if the POWERbot R7065 is right for you.
