The 360 S6 Design

The 360 S6 robotic vacuum cleaner has got a minimalistic design that looks fantastic. Somehow it reminds the Roborock S5 white & black style. On top, we can see a round head that featured a laser inside. There are two buttons: power and recharge. And the one that leads us to open the lid where you can find a dustbin. Underneath the robot houses its main brush, two large heels, water tank assembly mounting port, and two side sweepers.

Navigation & Cleaning pattern

The 360 S6 is equipped with sensors that prevent it from falling down stairs and collisions with furniture. Drop sensors detect stairs and help the robot to not falling down. As we mentioned before, there is an LDS sensor that scans the interior of a room and builds the most efficient way of cleaning on its own, following the zig-zag mode. The laser is accurate when it comes to mapping and allows the robot to build a map in the dark.

360 S6 mapping the room and obstacles

The biggest thing about this device is that it creates a map in real-time, so if you place a chair or anything else in front of it while the device is working, it will rebuild a map and show it on the map immediately. The 360 S6 robot remembers where it is now. If you have more than a one-floor house, the cleaner will actually know where it is. It holds in memory a few maps, it remembers a map of each floor.

How does it work?

Two side brushes sweep dust and dirt along the walls and transfer it into the dustbin. The main brush catching pet hair and dirt, where its powerful motor sucks it inside the dustbin. The machine has the feature that increases suction once it recognizes a carpet.

The dustbin has two filters one of which is a washable HEPA filter. It is perfect for those who suffer from asthma and allergies. It catches 99% of PM2.5 dust, mites, allergens, and dirt.

Even though the 360 S6 has a strong suction that delivers 1800 Pa, it is quieter than most the high-end robot cleaners on the market. Thanks to its large wheels, the 360 S6 can climb obstacles up to 0.67 inches (17 mm) and has no issues with crossing over thick carpets. Voice prompts informs about cleaning status.

The 360 S6 comes with a 150 ml water tank and a mop cloth. In the mopping mode, it controls water dripping making it leak when the robot is moving but once S6 stops - water stops leaking.

Battery life

The 3200 mAh battery lasts about 90-120 minutes, it depends on the cleaning mode. Once it gets lower than 20% the robot returns back to its charging station, recharge and resumes cleaning from the point it left off. Thanks to the Lidar Mapping System, the cleaner remembers where it has been.

App control

The 360 S6 comes with an app making it able to be controlled from your smartphone even when you are not home. Except for basic features such as start, manually manage its movement, scheduling the robo and so on. You can select cleaning areas and forbidden zones so the cleaner will not cross the selected areas.

    Interesting but it looks like an ad and not a review. The only video is provided by the manufacturer!

      Hi Pierre,
      it is not a review, it is just an announcement of a new device. All the photos and videos from the manufacturer's website. We'll write a review of this robot vacuum later.

      I've ordered mine last week Thursday, and contrary to what I was thinking, it arrived already. Well packaged (double boxed against the rigours of shipping).
      The box contains as stated in the user manual and quick start guide (both in perfect English), the robot, the base station, charger, cleaner brush and the mopping container.
      The battery was completely drained so I manually pushed it on the base station, and after a few seconds a booming voice announced it was alive…
      And then I hit a bump… The bar codes, manually searching, googling the website and then trying to find it, there is no easy way to find the APP, required to config the device.
      My hunch is that the APP (iOS in my case) is only available in the Apple App Stores of certain countries, so I need to connect to these stores to see if that helps… but that would also mean my app wouldn't update automatically…
      Support info not easy to be found…
      To be continued…
      (But so far, I'm impressed with the quality of the finishing, the manuals, the packaging)

        Hi Gys,
        thanks for your feedback! I'll get this robot next week. Hope the problem with the app availability in certain countries and lack of information will be solved soon. It's just a new model that came on the market this month.
        Would be glad to hear any updates about your experience with this robot.

            Hi Petrus,

            Try this direct link to the 36OSmart app.
            Looks like they are using «O» letter instead of «0» (zero) in the app name. Maybe that's why you can't find it in the App store.

          I believe the app might be called «360Smart».
