Dust and debris, mostly hidden under furniture, not only degrade air quality but alsopose a risk to those with allergies, yet manually cleaning these areas is a chore incompatible with today's pursuit of convenience and autonomy. That's where slim smart vacuums, like our DEEBOT X2 OMNI, come into play. Its sleek profile effortlessly clean under sofas, cabinets, and beds, keeping our homes cleaner and our lives simpler, proving that sometimes, the biggest impacts come from the slimmest designs.

Low Profile & Height

Slim robot vacuums, with their low profiles, glide effortlessly under furniture where dust and allergens hide. For instance, thin models like the DEEBOT X2 OMNI, can easily clean under beds, and even shower vanities for long hair, areas often neglected during regular cleaning sessions. This ability to reach tight spaces not only enhances the cleanliness of your home but also improves air quality by removing dust and debris accumulated in areas traditional vacuums can't access.

Compact size

The compact size of robotic vacuum cleaners, including their docking stations, is the key to whether they can integrate into your home with ease. Not only do these slim devices clean regardless of home layouts, but when they’re not cleaning, they can easily tuck away at their dock and maintain a minimal footprint. For instance, the DEEBOT's OMNI Station is designed to be unobtrusive, blending into your home decor while automatically emptying the dustbin, cleaning the mop head with hot water and hot air, so it’s ready for the next cleaning session.

Navigation sensors

Advanced navigation sensors allow slim smart vacuums to deliver a thorough clean without missing spots. These sensors first help create an accurate virtual map of your space, planning the most efficient cleaning path. Then, they expertly guide the vacuum and dodge obstacles to prevent any damage. When the battery runs low, these sensors direct the vacuum back to its charger. After recharging, the vacuum resumes cleaning exactly where it left off.

Quiet operation

Apart from precise navigation, many thin auto vacuums also feature a quiet operation mode. This quieter performance helps create a peaceful, harmonious living environment, especially in homes with thin walls, pets, or babies, where traditional vacuum noise can be disruptive. A quiet automatic vacuum further supports nighttime cleaning schedules, so you can wake up to a thoroughly cleaned floor after a good night’s sleep. For home workers, its silent operation will not interrupt conference calls and focus, keep your place clean and calm at all times.


No matter whether you live in a small apartment in downtown Chicago or a spacious suburban house in Colorado Springs, you may want to add one more requirement to your quest for the perfect robotic vacuum cleaner: a slim design. The reason isn't just about sleek designs – it's about enhancing its cleaning efficiency and convenience. From gliding under low-height furniture with ease to navigating around tight corners and dodging obstacles, a slim design can instantly enhance a robot vacuum’s ability to deliver a deep and comprehensive clean.


Can slim robot vacuums clean large homes effectively?

Yes, their advanced navigation ensures an efficient cleaning path, while their slim design helps ensure every corner is reached and cleaned. When the battery is low, they automatically return to the dock to charge, then resume cleaning right where they left off.

Can thin robot vacuums effectively clean carpets and hard floors?

Yes, thin smart vacuums are well-equipped with strong suction power to effectively clean both carpets and hard floors. They adapt to different surfaces with ease, removing dust and debris, even those stuck between long fibres.

How do low profile robot vacuums compare to standard models in terms of cleaning efficiency?

In terms of cleaning efficiency, low-profile auto vacuums have the advantage of reaching under furniture and tight spaces when compared to standard models. Those hard-to-reach areas are likely to accumulate dust and allergens; therefore, thin robot vacuums are more effective in covering them to achieve a thorough clean.
