Hom-Bot Square: "The iPad of Vacuums"

With smart mapping skills and effortless cleaning, LG Home-Bot earned a rave review from Forbes, who called it "the best vacuum cleaner I've ever owned."

Your vacuum just
got a lot smarter

With a new square design, Dual Eye 2.0 Mapping System and 6 Smart Clean
Modes, LG Hom-Bot Square is the latest advancement in automated home vacuuming.

The Smarter, Quietest Clean.

LG Hom-Bot is a truly intelligent robotic vacuum with Wi-Fi® capabilities, giving users total control using a smartphone. And while Hom-Bot’s cleaning technology makes people take notice, thanks to an innovative design that absorbs vibrations and reduces noise, it’s the quietest robot vacuum on the market on non-carpeted floors.*

Revolutionary Dual Eye 2.0™ Mapping System

With cameras mounted on the top and bottom, Hom-Bot maps the area around your home as it cleans to help ensure it doesn't miss a spot.

Collision-Safe Digital Bumper

The Hom-Bot learns where to go and identifies objects it needs to avoid, so less bumping into furniture and household items.

6 Smart Cleaning Modes

The LG Hom-Bot lets you select between seven different custom cleaning modes, each uniquely suited to different tasks.

Easy-out Dust Bin

When the dust bin is full, removing it and putting it back is tidy and quick, so the LG Hom-Bot can get back to business in no time.

Smart Resume Function

If cleaning is interrupted or if the Hom-Bot is moved to a new area, its Auto-Resume allows it to continue cleaning where it left off.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard worker! After having tested (4) different robots, we chose Miss Rosie (that's her name). It's wonderful to come home to a clean house every day, even with cats & dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY NEW BEST FRIEND This isn't an inexpensive appliance so I had very high expectations, and this little robot has far exceeded my hopes. The vacuum utilizes a home station and it's important to decide where to put it because the robot must be able to "see" the home station when it needs to re-dock. I did learn that if you move the home station, you have to give robot a chance to re-discover where it moved to, and that takes a couple of returns before it figures out the change. What's to love about this? Everything. It does a fantastic job of cleaning my wood plank porcelain tile floors, it has learned where the furniture is so it can avoid it in future, which speeds up cleaning time. It methodically goes back and forth in each room, but I noticed that if it "sees" a piece of dirt that it missed, it will sort of zone in on that piece and suck it up. I was very impressed when it did that! This little robot is very powerful and leaves the floors spotless. However, even though I have a small 1200 sq. ft. house, it takes about an hour and a half as it goes over the house at least twice. I take up the bathroom mats because they are thick. Robot happily vacuums my flatter rugs, and has a turbo charge that comes on automatically when it senses it is on carpet instead of hard floor. Again, seriously impressive. It couldn't get over the edge of my dining room shag rug so I made a "wall" with my feet along the edge of that rug so robot could learn not to try to get into the dining room. Hom-Bot is super quiet. He just hums back and forth and you can't even hear him over the television. Emptying the dust bucket, which is located under a flip up lid on the top of the robot, is a breeze and much easier than emptying the dust canister in my upright vacuum cleaner. A huge plus is that this little guy is not very tall so he can get under the edge of all my kitchen cabinets, and he even goes underneath the chest of drawers in the bedroom. But he doesn't go under the bed because he thinks the bed skirt is a barrier like a wall so he backs off on that. If you want something to clean your floors without you having to do more than press the start button on a remote, this little guy is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Mom's Best Friend As a mom of two kids (with one more on the way), it seems like our house is constantly covered in crumbs. Combine that with the fact that our kids are scared of the vacuum and you have a perfect storm of a mess! I am so happy that we found Hom-Bot. Our kids love to watch the vacuum and can even operate it themselves. The design is perfect for our home, a combination of hard wood and area rugs. Turbo mode is great for extra crumby spills and messes. We love spiral spot mode for quick cleans and cell by cell for a more thorough job. The dual cameras make it adept at navigating around furniture and toys. It's so easy to set it and go about our business. Our house has never been cleaner. A perfect gift for the mom in your life!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Remarkable Little Robot This little vacuum does a remarkable job cleaning my hardwood floors and is persistent and clever about getting around obstacles in such a way that it vacuums every possible space. It rarely gets snagged or obstructed by rugs or objects, and when it does, it's easy to fix the problem, no damage done. It's not perfect at lifting everything off the floor. Some stuff—possibly held to the floor by static electricity— stays on the floor even after the vacuum rolls right over it. This argues for the model that has a "mop" but I think the additional $100 is steep for that added feature. I would give it five stars if it vacuumed everything and cost $200 less.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great time saver! I have had my Hom-Bot for several months now, and I love it. It's very quiet and efficient, and as the mom of a toddler, the ability to set a timer and just have it run daily is perfect! it does a wonderful job on my hardwood floors, and has given me one less chore to do. it does a great job on corners, and I love that if I have a spill I can set it to just clean that area. The fact that it's easy to clean and remove hair from the bristles is just icing on the cake!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive Well Built One Touch Vacuum I received a Ruby Red Hom-Bot Robot Vacuum (VR65502LV) from LG just before Christmas for free to use and evaluate. The vacuum cleaner arrived well packaged and in perfect condition. The Vacuum was ready to use right out of the box, just plug in the home station, charge the vacuum for a few hours and you are ready to go. There was also spare dust bin filter and a brush for cleaning the filter and the sensors in the box. The Hom-Bot is square unlike the round robot vacuums I have used in the past. The case is a bright Ruby Red with a LED readout that lets you know if the unit is charging and the current battery level as well as the current mode selected. The buttons on the vacuum are touch activated and allows you to, start cleaning, select the cleaning mode and return the unit to the home station. There are two brushes in each from corner that rotate when the vacuum is in use. There is a simple remote control that stands up in the charging base and has all these controls as well as a Turbo Mode, Repeat, My Space Schedule Diagnosis Mute, clock and direction controls to steer the vacuum to a specific location. It is vital to ensure you have at least 3ft clearance on either side of the home station or the Hom-Bot will have difficulty returning home. The dust bin is accessible from the top of the vacuum by pushing the center front of the vacuum. The lid pops up to revel the dust bin with a handle that removes the dust bin easily. Once you empty the dust bin it slides back in the vacuum easily. This is about the only user intervention this vacuum actually needs (more later) so the easy access is a very welcome feature. The Hom-Bot has custom cleaning modes that determine the vacuum pattern, zig zag, or cell by cell. You can change the modes using the remote control or by pressing a button on the vacuum and you get a voice confirmation of the change. I used both modes and the vacuum did an excellent job in either mode so I just set it to zig zag and left it. The vacuum also has a spiral spot clean that use can use to clean a small area only. It starts in the center of the area and spirals around until co covers about a 3ft by 3 ft. spot. The vacuum then turns off and you can either use the direction control on the remote to move to another area or just press the home button to return to to the charging station if you are done. The only way to keep the vacuum from going places you don’t want it to is by using some physical barrier (close a room door etc.). There is a My Space mode where you can drive the vacuum around a small area and the vacuum will stay in that area. The space can be irregular but it has to have four sides and the same starting and ending point or you will get an error and the vacuum will wait until you set the space correctly. My Space is a nice feature to keep the vacuum in one space and then return to the home station when it is done. If the Hom-Bot could remember more than one space this feature would be much more useful but this is a good start. I have a one-story home with a mix of hardwood floors and carpet. I also have three black cats and light carpet so cat hair is a daily issue. The Hom-Bot did a great job picking up the cat hair and cleaning both floor types with ease. The front brushes moved dirt and hair away from the sideboards and the corners so the vacuum could pick it up. You could hear the machine changing speeds and vacuum power automatically when it went from Hardwood to carpet. The Hom-Bot is very quiet even in on carpet. You can start cleaning by either using the buttons on the vacuum, the remote control or using the built-in schedule feature. Using the schedule feature the vacuum will run automatically on the time you select however you cannot skip days or set different times for different days I pushed the start button twice, the vacuum came to life rolled off the charging station and spun around. A voice reminder came on to remind me to check the dust bin just before the Hom-Bot started cleaning. The Hom-Bot navigated around obstacles with ease only bumping into things occasionally and did not try and go down the stairs to the basement. You will have to pick up loose cables and any small objects that you do not want the vacuum to pick up, cat toys in my case. It did seem to have a little trouble with chairs, The Hom-Bot would go under chairs but sometimes could not figure out how to get back out. The built-in voice lets you know when and if the vacuum gets stuck so you can free it up. Once I moved it out from under the chair I just set it down and it resumed cleaning the rest of the room. The voice alert also lets you know when the Hom-Bot is returning home to charge the battery or if it is returning home because it is done cleaning. After the battery is charged the Hom-Bot returns where it left off and continues cleaning. The vacuum ran just under two hours before it needed to be charged. The Hom-Bot is an attractive well-built one touch vacuum that does a great job cleaning the house. If you want to manually control, the vacuum you can do that as well. It probably won’t replace your full-size vacuum however it cuts way down on your house cleaning time and gives your home the just vacuumed look every time you use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOM-BOT is an Excellent Robotic Vacuum Cleaner! Over the past 3 weeks we have really put this vacuum to the test. Our home has various floor coverings; hardwood, carpet and tile; besides a large hairy dog and a long hair cat. The HOM-BOT (HB) performed great on all 3 floor coverings along with handling all the hair from the dog and cat. The battery life is exceptional on tile and hardwood with a run time of 1 hour and 45 minutes when running in the standard mode. The HB will automatically switch to turbo mode when on carpeting which causes the battery to run down faster. We closed off a carpeted area to test the battery in turbo mode and it lasted 35 minutes but it did an exceptional job of cleaning the carpet. We first vacuumed the carpet with our upright vacuum and after the HB ran we had to empty HB bin twice before it was finished. The 2 brushes on the front of the HB help to get the hard to reach areas that the other robotic models struggle with. The HB does not get stuck in tight areas and has always been able to find it's way back to the charging station. The charging station works better when installed on a hard surface. We had some issues with the HB docking on the charging station when installed on carpet. The charging station is lightweight and easily moves on carpeting with pad. The only issue we had with the HB was finding a place for the charging station. The instructions show you need a flat surface near a wall at least 5' to the left and right of the charging station and 6.5' in front with no obstacles. With all of the furniture in our home a 10' open spot on a wall was almost impossible to find without moving furniture. LG should have this information on the outside of their packaging to make sure consumers are aware of this requirement before purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Home Bot that saved Christmas. My Red LG Home Bot saved our Christmas. Not only was the Home Bot my favorite Christmas present but, as usual my husband and I over did it physically. We are both 55 years old and cannot pick up and carry a regular vacuum.

How does the robotic do on dog hair? Does it clog up where it lets you know when it does?

Asked by: Ingrid Snyder
I own a Hom Bot.  I am very happy with the ability of this product to pick up animal Pet hair.  If you follow directions and clean the robot after each use you will have no problems and the machine will work continuously. I am 55 and come and can no longer carry a large vacuum. This product is perfect for me and my hairy dog.
