ECOVACS ROBOTICS & Amazon Alexa: A Match Made In Smart Home Heaven2017-07-27
Industry leader ECOVACS ROBOTICS introduces Amazon Alexa™ voice command capabilities to its intelligent robotic vacuum.


[San Francisco, July 10, 2017] — ECOVACS Robotics, one of the world’s leading Robotics innovators, makes an important step into the full integration of its cleaning robots in Smart Home systems by launching Amazon Alexa skills for its flagship DEEBOT R95. Now the owners of the robotic vacuum can ask Alexa to control their DEEBOT, creating a totally hands-free experince.  The R95 will be available this week on Amazon, with a special $100 offer in conjunction with Amazon Alexa on Wednesday, July 12th.

“As a leading home service robotics innovator, 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 ECOVACS Robotics. “Today, we proudly announce the ECOVACS Alexa Skill. 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.”


The ECOVACS Amazon Alexa Skills allow the R95 to respond to voice commands dleivered through devices including Amazon Echo and Echo Dot, making floor cleaning easier than ever before. 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 cutting-edge smart features including industry-leading laser mapping, intuitive smartphone control, and 5-Stage Cleaning System. The robot uses a proprietary SMART NAVI™ 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. This intelligent robot is even equipped with smart Anti-Collision Sensors to detect objects in its path and navigate around them for uninterrupted cleaning—not to mention Stair Safe Technology that utilizes Anti-Drop sensors to avoid falling over.  The DEEBOT R95 aslo takes care of the floor even when you are not at home.  Through the ECOVACS App, you can schedule an automatic daily cleaning with its advanced wet/dry mop function at a specific time.

ECOVACS Robotics will continue to break new ground in intelligent home robotics solutions. Our integration with Amazon Alexa is only the first step as homes become more intelligent and responsive.  We are building a world where your home asks less of your attention, becomes more seamless and powerful, and frees you to spend more time doing what you love.
