ECOVACS WINBOT W1 PRO window cleaning robot launches in Australia

    Cleaning our homes is an activity that almost nobody enjoys, so leveraging technology and particularly robots is an increasing trend. Robotics in the home first took hold with vacuum cleaners that would navigate around your home and evolved to auto-empty and even clean your floors.

    Robots also found their way outdoors to help with the regular task of lawn mowing. The next challenge is a vertical one, in which the glass that we have, often gets dirty as it’s exposed to fingerprints or in the case of external windows, rain and dust.

    ECOVACS ROBOTICS, has today announced the expansion of its home cleaning range with the launch of the WINBOT W1 PRO window cleaning robot.

    Featuring a range of proprietary cleaning and suction technology, the WINBOT W1 PRO delivers a spotless and simple clean that epitomises ECOVACS’ commitment to deliver innovative home robotics to Australians that bring convenience and true time-saving benefits.

    Designed so that Australians can have more time to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the view”, the WINBOT W1 PRO features dual direction cross auto-spray technology, a powerful steady-climbing system, upgraded WIN-SLAM 3.0 path planning, anti-flare edge detection technology and a strong suction power of 2800Pa.

    Its compatibility with the user-friendly ECOVACS App and ability to vocalise real time updates further enables a hands-free cleaning experience, freeing up time to focus on other activities other than home cleaning, with the WINBOT W1 PRO also delivering an incredible clean to normally hard to reach areas.

    While the launch of the WINBOT W1 PRO will expand ECOVACS’ Australian range beyond robotic vacuum cleaners, it has been a global leader in window cleaning robots for more than a decade, with its first window cleaning robots launching in 2011.

    The WINBOT W1 PRO is the culmination of this decade of R&D and expertise in this specific category, and comes as ECOVACS ROBOTICS is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2023.  

    “As ECOVACS ROBOTICS celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2023, the desire from Australians to embrace time-saving home cleaning robotics has never been greater. We are delighted to expand our product portfolio with the WINBOT W1 PRO and believe its advanced window cleaning technology means that Australians can instead ‘sit back, relax and enjoy the view’  whilst we continue to deliver the future of home cleaning.”
