While this is, primarily, a robotic vacuum, it also comes equipped with a fantastic mopping system. This mopping system is one of the most notable features that this robot vacuum offers, and it adds another layer of functionality to the vacuum, and what you are able to do with it.

To use this robot vacuum, you’ll be relying on the Mi Home App. The Mi Home App is a smartphone application that gives you access to all of the features and functions that this robot vacuum offers.

Using the app, you can adjust the cleaning mode, see where the vacuum is in your home, take direct control of it, choose specific areas to clean, create a custom schedule; along with a variety of other functions and features.

What is nice about the Mi Home App is that it also works with Amazon Alexa. So, if you don’t want to use your smartphone, and would rather use your voice to activate the robot vacuum, then you can easily do that.

When you turn on the robot vacuum, you have access to several different cleaning modes. Carpet Mode is ideal for, as you would expect, vacuuming on carpets.

Quiet Mode is ideal if you want the vacuum to be nice and quiet, and your floors aren’t that dirty. With Balanced Mode, the mop and vacuum are used – assuming that the vacuum is on a hard floor – allowing for the floors to be vacuumed and mopped.

Using Mopping Mode, only the mopping system is used, allowing for your floors to be mopped. Finally, with Max Mode and Turbo Mode, the vacuum and mopping system use as much power as they can, allowing for a very thorough and efficient floor cleaning.

Each one of those modes works very well, thanks to the simplicity of this robot vacuum’s design, as well as the power that it comes equipped with. All of this power comes from the motor, and the motor allows you to vacuum on just about any surface.

This is part of what makes this robot vacuum so excellent, because a lot of robot vacuums simply don’t have enough power for vacuuming on really thick carpets and rugs, to name just one example.

When it comes to the mopping system, it works very well, but it probably shouldn’t be used as a replacement for traditional mopping. Instead, the mopping system serves as an excellent way of keeping your floor free of small stains, dirt, and clumps of dust.

If you run the robot vacuum every day, or every other day, and there isn’t anything especially nasty on your floors, then the mopping system might be all that you need.

But, if there are larger stains that you need to mop up, then a regular mop will be ideal.

One of the nicest features that this robot vacuum offers, is the fact that you can go onto the Mi Home App and choose the exact rooms and spaces that this robot vacuum cleans.

With this feature, it’s incredibly easy for you to control the specifics of the vacuuming process, allowing you to ensure that your floors are cleaned in the exact manner that you desire.

Another excellent feature that this robot vacuum offers is the fact that it gives you 2.5-hours of battery-life. That’s a lot of battery-life for a robot vacuum, and having this much battery-life means that you can easily vacuum a large home, in just one session.

With all of the different features and design traits, this is a very good robot vacuum that offers a great deal of performance, efficiency, and a very easy vacuuming/mopping experience.

But, to have that experience, you will need to spend quite a bit of money.

This is not an inexpensive robot vacuum, and while it is worth the price, unless you are looking for the exact features that this robot vacuum offers, it might not be the ideal device for you.
