LG HOM-BOT TURBO+: FIRST WI-FI ENABLED ROBOTIC VACUUM CLEANER WITH MONITORING FUNCTIONS IN SINGAPORE
- 03, 22 2017
SINGAPORE, March 22, 2017 — LG Electronics (LG) is proud to announce the launch of its LG HOM-BOT Turbo+ (VR66820VMNC) in Singapore. Available in a metallic gold color, this new model introduces the concept of smart cleaning to Singaporeans. It introduces smart features like HomeGuardTM allow parents, pet owners and frequent travellers to keep an eye on their homes wherever they are.
Doubles Up as a Security Camera
The LG HOM-BOT Turbo+ can be remotely controlled anytime, anywhere. It is more than just a vacuum cleaner — its HomeGuardTM function also offers security capabilities. When set to survey a preselected location within the home, it will snap and send five photos of the preset area to the owner’s smartphone when motion is detected. This function gives users a peace of mind when away from home to keep an eye on pets or elderly folks. The smart device will return to its charging station after being in Motion Detection mode for five hours and thirty minutes, and once fully charged, the HOM-BOT Turbo+ goes back to its preset position.
Track its Cleaning Progress with HomeViewTM and Cleaning Diary
The HomeViewTM feature allows home owners to monitor the LG HOM-BOT Turbo+ cleaning progress wherever they are. Boasting a wide-angle camera at the front, the robotic vacuum cleaner captures more details in a single frame for convenient real-time monitoring. Simply launch the SmartThinQ mobile application (available on Android and iOS) and activate the HOM-BOT Turbo+ to start its cleaning schedule at the preselected locations. The joystick on the application allows users to control and direct the vacuum cleaner. They can also have a direct view of what the camera is capturing on their smartphone screens and allow users to have better control over the cleaning process to ensure the house is spick and span.
The Cleaning Diary function allows users to review where the LG HOM-BOT Turbo+ has been cleaning via a playback feature. With this feature, users can check the vacuum’s cleaning route with their smartphones to ensure a thorough clean at home. They can also schedule a timing for the HOM-BOT Turbo+ to start cleaning or change the preselected locations as preferred.
Efficiency is a Hallmark
With the following features, the LG HOM-BOT Turbo+ increases user convenience while maximizing cleaning efficiency.
Triple Eye: The vacuum cleaner is fitted with three cameras, with the front camera activated as a security camera. The upper camera creates a map of the house by calculating the intensity of light while vacuuming. The lower camera reads the floor pattern and measures distance and slight changes to the floor to smartly clean darker areas such as under the sofa or bed.
Digital Bumper and Smart Exit: The Digital Bumper feature combines multiple ultrasonic sensors to recognize obstacles in the LG HOM-BOT Turbo+’s proximity and minimize collisions, even transparent objects such as glass. The Smart Exit function enables the unit to take various actions when faced with challenges such as weaving its way out of tight spaces, backing out from bumps, detecting ledges to prevent falling or getting stuck on door frames.
Easy Out Dust Bin: Unlike vacuum cleaners with slide-out dust bins, the LG HOM-BOT Turbo+ has a lift-from-the-top dust bin that minimizes residual dust around the bin slot. Retrieval of the dust bin can be done in one easy push to unlock and lift.
Mapping Resume Function: If cleaning is interrupted, the LG HOM-BOT Turbo+ will remember where it left off from and return to its last position to continue cleaning, avoiding repetition in the cleaning process.
Smart Inverter Motor™: Both powerful and durable, the Smart Inverter motor is backed by a 10-year warranty, offering owners maximum performance with high efficiency and durability.
The LG HOM-BOT Turbo+ retails for S$1,599 and will be available at all LG authorized retailers from end March onwards.
