I hate cleaning windows manually because it takes a lot of time and effort considering that I'm living on the 5th floor and cleaning my balcony windows from the outside is not so easy, even a dangerous task. With the Alfawise WIN660, I'm doing this job without any physical effort. It does a good job and windows looks crystal clean, yet sometimes can't handle some stubborn stains and leave a little bit of mess near to the edges of the window.

Appearance

The Alfawise WIN660 has an ultra-thin square body made of high-quality plastic, on the top side there is a handle, start/stop button, indicator lights, buzzer, and a power cord socket.

On the bottom side, you can see velcro around the body to which you can attach a cleaning pad, a suction inlet with a fan, status indicator LED, two driving tread, and edge detection sensors.

How Does it Works

The Alfawise window cleaner is easy to use. You just need to attach the microfiber cloth to the robot, spray a cleaning fluid to the cloth, hold the power button for two seconds until the fan turns on, stick the robot to the window, and press the power button again to start the cleaning.

The strong motor with a fan inside the robot generates decent suction sticking the device to any glass surface: a window, mirror, glass door and so on. The rubber tank tracks allow the robot to move forward, backward and turn around. Four sensors located on the corners help the robot to detect edges of the window and allow to work on frameless windows. The WIN660 is equipped with a 600 mAh battery inside, however, it can't clean the window without an external power supply, the battery needed as a backup power, for safety reasons. If the device was unplugged, or power supply interrupted the robot will not fall down and you have up to 30 minutes to take off the robot from the window.

The power cable has a length of 5.5 meters which is enough for cleaning average house windows. The cable has a threaded plug that can be securely fastened to the window cleaner. In addition, there is a safety rope in the box, that you should loop inside the handle and tie it to something heavy and well fixed. The robot never fall off the window when I used it, however, it is necessary to use it when you clean windows outdoors for safety reasons.

The microcontroller inside the robot doing all the necessary calculations, so the machine understands when it cleaned the whole surface and return to the point where it was attached. The Alfawise WIN600 has a zig-zag cleaning path, it can move horizontally and vertically, it changes direction when reaches the edge of the window.

If the robot accidentally unplugged, or when it finished the job, it is beeping notifying that you need to take an action.

Cleaning Performance

The Alfawise window cleaner cleans windows as well as doing this job by hand, or even better. However, it can't remove some stubborn stains and leaves uncleaned a rim of 1 cm near to the window borders that needed to be cleaned by hand. Unlike other round-shaped robotic window cleaners, this one is better in cleaning corners since it has a square-shaped body. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the result.

There is a spray bottle in the box, however, it was empty so you need to fill it with your own liquid glass cleaner. It is important to add the necessary amount of the liquid to the cleaning cloth. When I used less liquid, it doesn't clean the glass good enough. If the cleaning pad is too wet (after washing it underwater), the robot's tank tracks slide on the glass and it just can't move in any direction. The best practice is to spray 5-10 times to the upper and the lower side of the cleaning pad (it should be slightly wet). The tank tracks should be dry to avoid slipping. Also, I spray a small amount of cleaning liquid to the window.

The window cleaner helps a lot on tall windows where you can't reach the top or outdoor windows that are difficult to clean manually without a ladder. The anti-dropping system with UPS backup battery prevents it from falling in the event of a power failure, in addition, you can use the high-strength safety rope. In my practice, it never fell off from the window. This robot has a weight of 1.4 kg and can be used even with thin windows.

The automatic window cleaner can clean one square meter in 2.5 minutes. The micro-fiber cleaning pads can be easily washed under water or in a washing machine.

How to control the robot window cleaner?

You can start and stop the cleaning process just by pressing the power button on the robot. It comes with an IR remote controller that you can use for manually moving the robot in any direction. There are three cleaning modes which you can choose by pressing buttons on the IR controller:

  • Z-pattern (from left to right): perfect for wider windows
  • N-pattern (from bottom to top): perfect for taller windows
  • Z/N-pattern: in this mode, the robot will use both cleaning patterns.

If you prefer to use a smartphone instead of the remote controller, just install the WinCleaner app to your smartphone via Google Play or iTunes, it has the same functions as the IR controller. To connect the app with the robot, press the power button on the device and run the app on your phone, it will be connected via Bluetooth immediately and you are ready to go!
