"The Roomba s9+ robot vacuum and Braava jet m6 robot mop are the most advanced robots that iRobot has ever built and the best home cleaning robots in the market today," said
Roomba® s9+ hugs edges, gets into corners
The Roomba s9+ robot vacuum with Clean Base™ Automatic Dirt Disposal offers customers the deepest clean yet1 with an advanced 3D sensor, a powerful new cleaning system and PerfectEdge® Technology, which encompasses 30 percent wider Dual Rubber Brushes2 and a specially designed Corner Brush. Each Rubber Brush has rubber treads that stay in constant contact with different floor surfaces – from hard floors to carpets – adjusting and flexing as needed to get everything from small particles, like dust and dirt, to hair and large debris. A specially designed Corner Brush uses five angled arms to grab dirt and debris from deep in corners and along walls, directing it into the robot's path to be vacuumed up.
The Roomba s9+ boasts a powerful new cleaning system with up to 40X the suction3 over previous generation Roomba vacuums. When the Roomba s9+ detects carpets or rugs, the robot employs its Power Boost technology to automatically increase suction to pull in dirt and debris from deep within carpet fibers.
iRobot's patented iAdapt® 3.0 Navigation with vSLAM® technology helps the Roomba s9+ seamlessly and efficiently navigate the home by keeping track of where it's been and where it has yet to clean. A new advanced 3D sensor on the Roomba s9+ constantly scans what's immediately ahead of the robot at a rate of 25 times per second to help the s9+ get deep into corners and clean large areas efficiently. Using iRobot's Imprint™ Smart Mapping technology, the Roomba s9+ gets to know the home's floor plan, giving customers total control to choose which rooms are cleaned and when. The robot can be scheduled to clean via the iRobot HOME App or by pressing the CLEAN button. Users can also initiate a cleaning with voice control when the robot is paired with Alexa enabled devices or the Google Assistant.
The Roomba s9+ robot features the first and only Anti-Allergen System for robots that traps and locks pollen and mold allergens, keeping them from escaping the robot or its Clean Base™
Braava jet® m6 mops multiple rooms, large spaces
The Braava jet® m6 robot mop delivers fresh, clean floors throughout the entire home. Users simply attach their preferred cleaning pad – Wet Mopping or Dry Sweeping – and the robot takes it from there. Like the Roomba s9+ robot, the Braava jet m6 robot uses iAdapt® 3.0 Navigation with vSLAM® technology and Imprint™ Smart Mapping to get to know the home's floor plan, giving users total control to choose which rooms are cleaned and when. The robot can be scheduled to clean via the iRobot HOME App or by pressing the CLEAN button. Users can also initiate cleaning via voice control when the robot is paired with Alexa enabled devices or the Google Assistant.
Ideal for hard floor surfaces, such as hardwood, tile, and stone, the Braava jet m6 robot features a Maximized-Edge design that helps the robot get into corners and along edges. Using advanced navigation, the robot cleans in an efficient pattern while navigating around furniture, rugs, and other obstacles. If the robot runs low on battery before its cleaning job is finished, it will automatically recharge and resume cleaning until the job is complete.
In Wet Mopping mode, the Precision Jet Spray and Wet Mopping pad tackle sticky messes, grime4, and kitchen grease. Users can add Braava jet™ Hard Floor Cleaning Solution for a long-lasting, fresh scent. In Dry Sweeping mode, the Dry Sweeping pad uses electrostatic force to capture dirt, dust and pet hair.
When the Braava jet® robot mop is finished cleaning, users don't have to worry about touching the dirty cleaning pads. Simply place the robot over a waste basket and hit the 'eject' button to drop the pad into the trash. Users can view Clean Map™ reports in the app to see where the Braava jet m6 cleaned and view other stats about the cleaning job. Reusable washable wet and dry cleaning pads are available for purchase separately.
Dynamic duo: Roomba® vacuums then Braava jet® mops
With the introduction of the Roomba s9+ and Braava jet m6 robots, iRobot is also ushering in the next generation of connected home automation with Imprint™ Link Technology, which enables robots to intelligently communicate with each other – working in sequence to get the job done. With Imprint™ Link Technology, the Roomba s9+ and Braava jet m6 robots work together to deliver an extra level of clean by automatically vacuuming then mopping, without any effort from the user.
Users can initiate a Linked clean in the iRobot HOME app, where they have the option to choose specific rooms for the robots to clean or an entire level of their home. To start, the Roomba s9+ will go out and vacuum the selected area. Once the Roomba robot docks, the Braava jet m6 robot will leave its dock and begin mopping. Users will receive notifications when vacuuming and mopping are complete. Imprint™ Link Technology will also work with the Roomba i7+ robot vacuum.
