CANTON, OHIO, January 20, 2017 — Hundreds of CES 2017 attendees stopped by the Ecovacs Robotics booth to get an exclusive look at its revolutionary new invention: The UNIBOT. With praise and media attention from CNBC.com , CNET , Top Ten Reviews , GeekNewsCentral and more, ECOVACS proved to be a major CES highlight with its showcase of home-service robots and continued its reign as a robotics industry leader.

The UNIBOT, which was named a “Hottest Product from CES 2017” by Network World from IDG, is a multi-tasking robot that can be controlled with a convenient ECOVACS smartphone app. This groundbreaking device has the power to alter the way home management is performed while transforming consumer perceptions of what a smart home can entail. The robot performs floor cleaning, air purification and home security functions, amongst others which drew in the likes of buyers and media. Its features include a suite of sensors that can manage home security by warning of break-ins and broken windows, a high-quality 3M air filtration system able to purify harmful pollutants and pathogens found in the air in targeted areas of the home, and a highly effective vacuum, capable of cleaning many different surface kinds, in any desired area.

CNBC.com featured the UNIBOT as a must-have robot for home security use and TopTenReviews.com writer Angie Parkinson appreciated the time-saving aspect of having innovative home appliances like the UNIBOT. ”All of these advances in home appliances have the potential to cut down on the time you spend maintaining your home,” Parkinson said.

CNET smart home and tech writer, Megan Wollerton hailed the UNIBOT saying, “With brands like iRobot, Neato and Dyson leading the charge with app-enabled robot vacuums, floor cleaners are getting a lot smarter. Case in point? Ecovacs Robotics UNIBOT.”

ECOVACS also displayed four additional products at CES 2017, each presenting a snapshot of the innovative nature of the company; DEEBOTs R98 and M88 and WINBOTs 950 and 850. The DR98 is a trailblazer in the DEEBOT series with proprietary SMART NAVI home navigation technology, capable of adapting to any home environment, and planning the quickest, most efficient cleaning path effectively. DM88 can be operated with SMARTPHONE app, as well as being equipped with SMART MOTION technology, whereby the cleaning pattern is systematic and highly efficient.

The W850 utilizes a 4-stage-cleaning process and advanced fan technology for maximum window cleaning efficiency. The W950 transforms the act of window cleaning with its SMART DRIVE movement system, allowing the driving wheels to operate independent of the square cleaning pad, in order to reach 90 degree corners with excellent coverage, without leaving streaks.
