ECOVACS Robotics makes another step towards the full smart home integration by launching Amazon Alexa skills for its flagship DEEBOT R95 vacuum cleaner.

Now homeowners can ask Alexa to control their DEEBOT, creating a totally hands-free experience.

The ECOVACS Amazon Alexa Skills allow the R95 to respond to voice commands delivered through devices including Amazon Echo and Echo Dot. For example, “Alexa, ask DEEBOT to start cleaning” enables the robot to start its cleaning process, while “Alexa, ask DEEBOT to start charging” instructs the DEEBOT to return to the charging station for self-charging. To stop cleaning, simply say “Alexa, ask DEEBOT to stop.”

The R95 is a compact floor-cleaning robot designed with smart features including laser mapping, intuitive smartphone control and the 5-stage cleaning system.

The robot uses a proprietary technology to scan and map the home environment, enabling itself to clean areas only once with complete coverage, avoid obstacles and travel the shortest route back to its charging station.

The robot is also equipped with smart anti-collision sensors to detect objects in its path and navigate around them for uninterrupted cleaning. And the stair safe technology utilizes anti-drop sensors to avoid falling over.

The DEEBOT R95 can take care of the floor when users are not at home. Through the ECOVACS App, homeowners can schedule automatic daily cleaning with its wet/dry mop function at a specific time.

“ECOVACS is dedicated to bringing a new lifestyle to homes around the world that enables them to live smart and enjoy life,” says David Qian, President of International Business Unit at ECOVACS Robotics. “With Alexa, the R95 makes cleaning floors as effortless as talking, creating a smart home device that’s functional, friendly and part of everyday life.”
