ECOVACS ROBOTICS has been awarded a Canstar Blue 2023 Innovation Excellence Award in cleaning appliances for its recently launched WINBOT W1 PRO robotic window cleaner.

This award marks the third consecutive year that ECOVACS has been recognised by Canstar Blue and the first time it has been recognised outside of robotic vacuum cleaners, with its DEEBOT X1 OMNI and DEEBOT T9+ robot vacuums previously receiving this accolade in 2021 and 2022.

Canstar Blue’s Innovation Excellence Awards are scored based on product uniqueness and how disruptive or new it is to the category, measuring the impact on consumers’ everyday lives. 

The WINBOT W1 PRO window cleaning robot expanded ECOVACS’ local product line-up beyond robotic vacuums. It features a range of proprietary cleaning and suction technology to deliver a spotless and simple clean.

The WINBOT W1 PRO has been recognised for its design including dual direction cross auto-spray technology, powerful steady-climbing system, WIN-SLAM 3.0 path planning, anti-flare edge detection technology and strong suction power of 2800Pa. Its compatibility with the ECOVACS app and ability to vocalise real-time updates further enables a hands-free cleaning experience.

Canstar Blue editor in chief, Christine Seib said a combination of effectiveness, convenience and connectivity is what wowed Canstar Blue’s Innovation Excellence judging panel.

“Maintaining streak-free glass in and around the home is few people’s favourite job – and a job that’s just not physically possible for many households – so the WINBOT W1 PRO also addresses a real consumer need,” she said.

“This isn’t surprising from a company that has received multiple Innovation Excellence awards in the appliances category due to its sharp focus on meeting Australians’ growing interest in time-saving robotic appliances with consistently strong product offerings.”

Commenting on the recognition, ECOVACS ROBOTICS regional director of Australia and New Zealand, Karen Powell said, “We are honoured to be recognised in this year’s Canstar Blue Innovation Excellence Awards, which is made even more special by being the only brand recognised in cleaning appliances, for our WINBOT W1 PRO.

“It also marks the third year in a row that ECOVACS has won this award, an acknowledgement of our track record in consistently delivering new innovation, year-after-year, that delivers true convenience and time-saving benefits into Australian homes.

“As we celebrate our 25th anniversary in 2023, being recognised in this way by Canstar Blue is particularly meaningful, and we remain committed to leading advancements in home robotics into the future.”
