The ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI has been recognised with the Canstar Blue 2022 Innovation Excellence Award for Cleaning Appliances. It is the second consecutive year that the company has received this award, as one of only two brands that was recognised in 2021.

Canstar Blue’s Innovation Excellence Awards are scored based on product uniqueness and how disruptive or new it is to the category, with the addition of the overall ‘wow’ factor.

The DEEBOT X1 OMNI has been recognised by Canstar Blue for its strongest suction power at 5,000Pa, the latest AIVI 3D and TrueMapping 2.0 technologies, its strongest mopping system, an all-in-one OMNI station that includes self-cleaning and auto air-drying, auto empty and auto water refill, and the industry’s first natural language interactive YIKO AI Voice Assistant.

ECOVACS ROBOTICS regional director for Australia and New Zealand, Karen Powell said, “It is so gratifying to be recognised as the brand that is leading and driving innovation in home service robotics in Australia. To achieve this recognition two years in a row across different flagship products epitomises our unwavering drive to constantly raise the bar for what is possible in a robotic vacuuming and mopping robot.

“Our global innovation team worked tirelessly on the DEEBOT X1 OMNI and the entire X1 Family, and the result redefined the industry by delivering the most advanced hands-free cleaning experience to-date. We are so proud that the introduction of a wide range of breakthrough intelligence and industry-first innovations are helping so many Australians in their everyday lives.”

  Canstar Blue home and lifestyle editor, Megan Birot commented, “As a relatively newcomer to the market, ECOVACS has set new standards for smarter capabilities in home robotics, with the DEEBOT X1 OMNI particularly impressing judges with its all-in-one cleaning station that offers modern homes the gift of truly hands-free cleaning. This hybrid robot vacuum with mopping capabilities also features an impressive suite of intuitive functions for customisable cleaning and a sleek design with a European flair.”
