- Our thoughts
ECOVACS has announced the newest robot vacuums - the DEEBOT OZMO 920 and DEEBOT OZMO 950. These are 2-in-1 devices that can do mopping and sweeping at the same time, something the previous DEEBOT OZMO 930 couldn't do.
The most significant update of the latest models - battery life. The OZMO 950 lasts up to 200 minutes on low power and the whole 150 minutes on high power, which is the longest in the industry. None robot vacuum cleaner can compete with the DEEBOT in this area. The OZMO 920, however, lasts up to 130 minutes, which is also a great result considering strong suction power and cleaning performance.
Another distinguishes the OZMO 950 from the OZMO 920 - cleaning modes. The OZMO 950 has three cleaning modes: Standart, Max, and Max+; the OZMO 920 has two: Normal and Max. It might cause cleaning performance on carpet since the Max+ mode provides deeper cleaning, but even on max mode, the DEEBOT performs excellently. Max+ mode provides 1,500 Pa of suction when the Max mode has 1,200 Pa making the OZMO 920 a little bit less powerful than the OZMO 950 but it still able to provide deep cleaning on carpets.
Other than that there are no significant differences between the two.

Navigation & Mapping
The robot is equipped with an LDS laser to map out an interior to make cleaning more efficient without missing a spot. Mapping helps to finish the job faster. The robot can be tracked in the app, it knows where it has cleaned and which areas should be cleaned.
The robot's height is only 9.3 mm (3.7 in) which is not much considering it has a tower with Lidar. It can reach most places under furniture. The robot is equipped with a high-efficiency filter, which is not HEPA, according to the manufacturer it reduces up to 99.2% of allergens and pollens in the air when the HEPA is able to get rid of 99.99% so the cleaner might not be suitable for allergy-sensitive people.
The DEEBOT can recognize carpeted surface. When it's vacuuming, the robot boosts up suction when on carpet; when a water tank is installed, the DEEBOT avoids carpets, leaving it dry. ECOVACS is the only manufacturer that introduced this feature, with other robots you either have to physically block carpets or set digital virtual walls to keep the machine off carpet.
According to the manufacturer, the robot has 1,500 Pa of suction which doesn't sound like much but based on Vacuum Wars measurement the OZMO 950 has 24 CFM of airflow velocity which is one of the highest (the 360 S5 and S7 have 24.2 and 24,66 CFM). Cleaning performance not only bases on suction power but also on extractors. In this case, the robot does not deliver too much suction in Pascals but has one of the highest airpower and does a great job at picking up things and providing deep cleaning on carpet.
The robot is suitable for houses with more than one level
The OZMO 950 crosses an obstacle up to 20 mm. Along with strong suction and great crossing ability, the robot performs amazingly good on both bare floors and carpets.
The robot saves up to 3 different maps and is ideal for multi-level houses.

Roller brush and suction inlet
The cool thing about the DEEBOT, it comes equipped with a cleaning brush and suction inlet.
The brush is designed to agitate dust and debris on carpet when the inlet is ideal for pet hair since it's tangle-free and better to be used on bare flooring.
The OZMO 950 is perfect for pet owners
The DEEBOT OZMO 950 has the longest-lasting battery in the industry and can work for up to 200 minutes (on low power settings) and the whole 150 minutes on high power settings. Before it was released, the Roborock S6 was the winner with its 180 minutes of battery life (according to the Vaccum Wars test).
The ECOVACS DEEBOT OZMO 950 cleans up to 3.5 hours on one charge. It is the longest-lasting robot vacuum cleaner in the industry
Moreover, when the robot is out of charge and does not finish the cleaning cycle, it returns to recharge and resumes cleaning when it's done charging.
Ideal if you live in a large house, the robot covers about 350 square meters (3767 square feet) on one charge.
Because of extended battery life and ability to save up to three maps, the robot can clean the whole house in one charge depending on the size.
So far no way any other robot vacuum cleaner could compete with the newest DEEBOT in terms of battery life.
App and smart features
The ECOVACS HOME app allows to switch between cleaning modes, schedule the robot, watch it work in real-time, view a created map, etc. The DEEBOT is the only robot vacuum that understands where a carpet is and makes it visible on the map so you can see it too making it easier to set virtual boundaries to keep the robot off the carpet if you want to be sure it won't go there.
Virtual boundary. This option is not new. It allows preventing the robot from going to certain areas you don't want it to go, such as cluttered zones, kids room, etc.
Customized areas. Some places might need more attention, and custom mode lets the robot know where it needs to clean. By drawing a rectangle, you set zoned cleaning, and the OZMO 950 will go there to do its job.
Area mode. Makes it easier to clean a particular room directly. When the map is created, you can tap on a room or two, and the cleaner will vacuum there. Useful since some rooms get dirtier faster, such as a kitchen or living room. Now you don't have to vacuum the whole place.
Alexa & Google Home Integration
The ECOVACS is compatible with Alexa-enabled devices and Google Home and lets you control the cleaner with voice commands. The commands include direct control, scheduling, status updates, cleaning modes, accessories status, etc.
The DEEBOT OZMO 950 is equipped with a 240 ml water tank and 2 mopping pads. Most 2-in-1 robots come with a ~150 ml water container. The manufacturer claims it removes up to 99.26% of bacteria on floors (study by Hygiene and Microbiology Research Center).
The DEEBOT OZMO 950 boosts suction on carpet in vacuuming mode an avoids carpets in mopping mode
In the app, you can adjust the level of water dripping depending on your cleaning needs. Helpful in case you need to do daily cleaning or to get rid of big messes.
The biggest and most useful feature of the DEEBOT - carpet identification. It recognizes carpet which you can see on the map and avoids it when the mopping attachment is on leaving your carpets dry.
The new DEEBOT can do mopping and sweeping at the same time when the previous model OZMO 930 only could do one thing.
Advanced carpet cleaning
The cleaner recognizes carpet flooring. When it steps on one, the vacuum boosts suction to max level providing deeper cleaning on carpet. And this feature is excellent either when the robot is vacuuming or mopping.
It is able to pick up a variety sized of debris from ultra-fine such as sand to large. The DEEBOT OZMO 950 is able to pick up 76% of the sand on a medium-pile carpet according to the Vacuum Wars test, which is a good result for a robot vacuum.
When it comes to hair pick up test, the OZMO 950 does a good job. The same as the Roborock S6, the DEEBOT does not get too much hair clogged, which makes it easy to clean.
The cleaner has three cleaning modes: normal, max, and max plus. Max+ mode can be used when you need an intense deep clean on carpet. It provides strong suction, and you can run it on carpet to get rid of dust and dirt that is hidden away.
Thanks to Max+ mode, the DEEBOT picks up most debris in just one path on bare flooring, most cleaners need to go twice to remove things. Two side brushes gather debris from both sides, making it more efficient at cleaning.
Overall, the DEEBOT OZMO 950 does a superb job on carpet and bare flooring because of high airflow, strong suction, great climbing ability, carpet identification, and mopping attachments.
What is the ECOVACS DEEBOT OZMO 950 best for?
- Large homes. It covers a big cleaning area in one charge even on max mode (up to 150 minutes and 250 square meters).
- Multi-level houses. The robot stores three different maps and is perfect for homes with more than one floor.
- Homes with carpets. High airpower, carpet identification, great climbing ability, and tangle-free cleaning brush work together to provide a superior pickup and deep cleaning.
- Homes with bare flooring. Because of the relatively big water tank, water level control, and carpet avoidance, the DEEBOT OZMO 950 does a great job at mopping bare floors.
- Pet owners. Thanks to the suction inlet and a newly upgraded cleaning brush, the OZMO 950 is suitable for pet hair. You won't have issues with clogged hair.
- Alexa & Google Assistant owners.
- Cluttered homes. Because of some smart features such as virtual boundaries with custom mode, the robot can avoid some unwanted zones.
