SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — ECOVACS ROBOTICS, a leader in smart cleaning robots, is pleased to announce the retail availability of the WINBOT X, its first-ever cordless window cleaning robot, to provide more efficient window cleaning with maximum coverage. As the first-of-its-kind cordless window cleaning robot on the market, WINBOT X brings a major breakthrough to cleaning windows on a daily basis, providing an easy solution that requires just a few finger taps to get started.
As a market leader and innovator that has achieved great success on the international stage, ECOVACS has designed the WINBOT X to fulfill the company’s motto of helping people to “Live Smart, Enjoy Life”. In addition to its cordless design, outstanding features of WINBOT X include a Deep Clean Mode, a Four-Stage Cleaning System, and a Safety Tether System, which have helped this groundbreaking robot become an honoree of both the 2018 CES Innovation Award and the Red Dot Award 2018.
“Regularly keeping windows clean is a never-ending battle for consumers and ECOVACS realized there was a need in the market for a cordless window cleaning robot that could reach areas previously inaccessible, without its movement being restricted,” said Jonathan Tang, Vice President of Global Channels at ECOVACS ROBOTICS.” The WINBOT X does exactly this. It is designed for people who want to enjoy a better view from their windows without the hassle of cleaning the windows themselves. By combining advanced cleaning abilities and a Safety Tether System, our customers are now able to consistently enjoy cleaner windows than ever before.”
Reach Areas Previously Unimaginable with the Cordless WINBOT X
WINBOT X is the first cordless window cleaning robot developed by ECOVACS, bringing a major breakthrough to the company as well as to the market. Its cordless design allows WINBOT X to move freely and reach higher areas so that it can cover more glass than previous generations which used an attached cord for power, instead of the WINBOT X’s internal battery. As a result, the movement of WINBOT X is no longer restricted, meaning that users do not need to manually move the WINBOT when cleaning large windows. It is also designed to move intelligently and safely to tackle stains and dirt on different types of glass for a better view from a user’s window than ever before, no matter the window type.
Weighing less than 4 pounds, users can simply pick up the robot with one hand and attach it to a window to start cleaning—it is the ideal helper for convenient window cleaning on a daily basis. Portable and simple to operate with one hand, and easy to move around, WINBOT X is also perfect for quick but durable cleaning. It can be moved quickly to other windows so that a regular complete clean of all windows in a users’ home can be achieved with minimal effort.
Enjoy an Optimal Window Cleaning Experience with Advanced Cleaning Mode
WINBOT X offers efficient cleaning in two stages. First it automatically scans and analyzes the cleaning area on a window. Next, it tackles dirt and stains with its advanced Deep Clean Mode, which ensures a polished clean by going over the same area repeatedly. Then, the WINBOT X uses a Four-Stage Cleaning Process, which combines mopping and a squeegee, to clean in all directions. WINBOT X’s cleaning process also utilizes an ECOVACS-developed cleaning solution for easy stain removal, to leave windows streak-free and sparkling. Additionally, the WINBOT’s Edge Detection Technology uses automatic sensors to detect window edges or edgeless windows, so that it knows when to go no further. Finally, its long battery life ensures a 50-minute cleaning process once fully charged for a complete clean.
Peace of Mind with WINBOT X’s New Safety Tether System
WINBOT X’s new Safety Tether System firmly secures it to the window glass, removing the danger of it losing its grip and falling off. The Tether-Pad monitors and ensures the robot’s connection to the glass; and when the air pressure within the suction cup is too low, the Tether-Pad will sound a warning and the tether will retract, protecting the robot during indoor and outdoor cleaning. This is especially important for cleaning windows on high buildings. Furthermore, the suction cup allows WINBOT X to stay on the glass for an extra 30 minutes after the battery runs out, giving extra peace of mind to users, reducing their worries about the robot detaching from the window and falling without warning. WINBOT X will always alert the user and keep the cleaning process safe.

The WINBOT X is available today for $449.99 online at B8ta, Wellbots, Sharper Image, Best Buy, and Kohls. For more information, please visit ecovacs.com or connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
