iRobot Roomba i7 (7150) quick glance
The Roomba i7 is equipped with one side sweeper, advanced silicone rollers, has strong suction and a 500 ml dustbin. All these things work together to agitate debris, dust, and dirt from hard floors and carpets.
The Roomba i7 has smart carpet identification. Once the robot recognizes carpeted flooring, it boosts air power to its max level. When the machine leaves the carpet, it returns to standard cleaning mode.
There is dirt detect that automatically provides deeper cleaning on high-traffic spots.
Same as with the Roomba 960 and 980, the Roomba i7 is equipped with a full dustbin indicator. When the container inside the vacuum gets full, the cleaner alerts which you can see inside the app. You have to empty the container manually and let the robot continue cleaning.
Inside the Roomba i7, there is a built-in camera sensor. It scans the surroundings to create a map of your room, so the vacuum knows where exactly to clean. After the plan is created, the i7 moves back-and-forth in straight lines methodically cleaning one room after another.
The Roomba i7 is suitable for bigger homes with carpets and bare floors though it does not mop. Perfect for pet hair thanks to its brushless rollers. The carpet boost, good climbing ability, and strong suction make the i7 perform well on carpets up to 20 mm height.
Most significant improvements the Roomba i7 gets is the ability of zone cleaning. When the robot creates a map, you can divide it into areas, name each and schedule the vacuum to work on a specific zone. The robot stores up to 10 different floor plans which makes it suitable for multiple-level houses.
In the box, you get a dual virtual wall barrier that keeps the robot from wandering.
