Samsung unveils Amazon Echo-compatible POWERbot VR7000 Robot Vacuum

Details are still pretty scarce at the moment and there's no word yet on pricing or availability. Dubbed as Powerbot VR7000, it could or couldn't be a part of Neato Vacuum lineup which that Samsung unveiled last month and it was compatible with Amazon Echo too.

The new design is aimed squarely at consumers who demand better automated cleaning. The level of suction is automatically adjusted by an "Intelligent Power Control" feature, based on the surface it's cleaning. Its 20 watts of suction power help to clean hard-to-reach places like under the bed. The cleaner can also sense obstacles as small as 10mm or even lower. It can also get as close as a half inch (15mm) to a wall and avoid objects as small as a quarter inch, thanks to the front placement of the wide 11-inch brush and "FullView Sensor 2.0". The device also features a self-cleaning brush system which, according to Samsung, "significantly reduces the amount of dust and hair that gets trapped in the bristles". So, when it moves from your hardwood floor to a carpet or rug, the motor automatically adjusts suction to accommodate the new surface. Of course, being in the age of the Internet of Things, you can control the vacuum using your smartphone, either to turn it on or schedule cleaning times.

"The POWERbot VR7000 keeps up with the floor care needs of today's busy families", said Byung-Sam Seo, President of Home Appliances at Samsung Electronics.

Moreover, the new POWERbot VR7000 robot vacuum cleaner also comes with Amazon Echo support, so as to enable the users of the device to conveniently operate it with voice controls.

Samsung's POWERbot VR7000 will be announced at Consumers Electronics Show 2017 in Las Vegas. "Just set it and watch it go to work".

Users can control and view numerous devices' actions, such as starting and stopping, scheduling and checking cleaning history, through an app, as well as the Amazon Echo.
