iRobot has just expanded its offering of high-end robot vacuum cleaners with the Roomba j7 +, a model that is based on some of the most premium features of the house such as intelligent navigation through a camera or the self-emptying system giving them a spin with the identification of objects, so that it promises to end the great fear of those of us who have a pet: prevent it from vacuuming the area where our pet has left us a “gift” in our absence.
A premium design with major changes
Aesthetically, the Roomba j7 + is a robot with black and matte metal finishes to look consistent with the decoration of our house. A important change in its design that has consequences on navigation is the position of the camera, which goes from the usual upper area to be located in the front and adding a light. Two key changes for its new facet of recognition and passage, to be able to work even in low light.
iRobot has also given a twist to the base design making it flatter, so that it is easier to place in spaces such as under tables. Of course, the bags remain the same as those present in other models with this self-emptying function, such as the Roomba s9 +, Roomba i7 + or the Roomba i3 +. It also has space to store spare parts and thus always have them at hand.
Intelligence to navigate and adapt to your preferences
One of the most important novelties of the Roomba j7 + is its PrecisionVision navigation system, which allows you to identify and avoid common obstacles on domestic floors such as cables or socks, but also detect the “surprises” that our pets can leave behind, something that we have already seen in other models such as the Roborock S6 MaxV. Thus, this robot has the ability to identify and maneuver around it.
In fact, iRobot is so confident of its good reconnaissance work that this model includes P.O.O.P. guarantee (Pet Owner Official Promise) – an acronym / play on words that translated from English means “guaranteed for poop” – which ensures that If the Roomba j7 + is not able to avoid this type of accident for a year, the brand will replace the robot.
Until now it was possible to use the navigation of the high-end iRobot models to map our house, make maps, assign rooms ourselves and thus carry out partial cleaning. With this latest generation, the robot alone learns the plane and divides it. In addition, as it works, it “learns” your preferences and adapts to them, informing you in real time of incidents that occurred during cleaning so that you can detail how to proceed according to their suggestions.
The potential of your learning It is such that according to the brand it learns our cleaning tastes, schedules, those times of the year when we clean more, if the house is dirtier or if we take advantage of when we are away to start it up.
Many of these functions reach their high-end with Genius 3.0
If you already have a high-end robot vacuum cleaner from iRobot with Imprint Smart Mapping (Roomba i7 / i7 +, Roomba s9 / s9 +, Roomba j7 / j7 + and the Braava jet m6 mopping robot) some of these functions will also be present with this new generation of the Genius platform.
For instance, scheduling cleaning when you leave home will be easier. Until now you had to do it manually, but now simply taking into account when you are not using the location services of your phone to do it.
It will be the robot itself that offers us tips for custom mapping, as is the case of the name and distribution of rooms.
Will estimate cleaning time so you know how much is missing.
If you are working and you have the Roomba vacuuming in a room and it has to pass near you, you can configure a silent scrolling so that it makes as little noise as possible while moving without vacuuming.
