iRobot introduces Roomba Combo j7+ with iRobot OS 5.0 updates


Designed for busy households with a mixture of carpets, rugs and hard floors, and those who want a robot vacuum that can also mop, iRobot Roomba Combo j7+ stands out by vacuuming and mopping in a single cleaning job. This is possible thanks to a fully retractable mop pad that lifts itself to the top of the robot when it encounters carpet and rugs, preventing wet carpet messes. iRobot OS 5.0 introduces new features and digital experiences that improve intelligence and personalization across the company’s portfolio of connected robots. Roomba Combo j7+ vacuums rugs and carpets first and then vacuums and mops hard floors concurrently, saving users time by cleaning the area in a single job. Using advanced sensors, the robot is able to detect various floor types. “Thanks to iRobot OS and the robot’s PrecisionVision Navigation system – the company explains – customers don’t have to worry about cleaning up before the cleaning begins. The Roomba Combo j7+ recognizes more than 80 common objects, which enables the robot to clean more specific places on command, like around kitty litter boxes, toilet bowls, dishwashers and more. It also allows the robot to detect and avoid floor hazards like cords, clothes, shoes, socks, backpacks, pet bowls, pet toys and solid pet waste”. Besides, to make cleaning even easier, it’s possible to pair the robot with the voice assistant and simply tell it to clean specific rooms or by specific objects in the home, and it does what user asks instantly. Roomba Combo j7+ understands approximately 600 voice commands. Users can customize their Roomba Combo j7+ cleaning jobs in the iRobot Home app, choosing which rooms should be vacuumed and mopped or vacuumed only, and adjust the amount of cleaning solution they want the mop to dispense. Finally, for vacuuming, the product also comes with the Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal system.
