Roborock has made a firmware update for one of its newer vacuum robots, the Roborock S6 MaxV. The new firmware incorporates new functionalities in order to improve the user experience. But among all the novelties, the possibility of see our home in real time through the cameras of the robot vacuum cleaner. This feature allows us to watch the home, monitor our pets or even verify if we have closed the door or the window after leaving the house. Everything from the Roborock app.
The new remote viewing function can be used while the robot is cleaning or by operating the robot through the Roborock application itself, with the Virtual Joystick function. In addition, we can send voice messages through the application, thus being able, for example, to communicate with our pets when we are away from home. This communication is only unilateral, that is, it only works from the application to the robot. We will not hear sound coming from the house.
Thanks to this new functionality we can get much more out of the two cameras that incorporates the Roborock S6 MaxV. Thanks to the incorporation of a dual camera, the MaxV locates the obstacles in its path and precisely estimates its location and size, reorganizing its route around the obstacles. In addition, the MaxV is equipped with an infrared system that can see in the dark and that, combined with the LiDAR navigation system, allows a complete cleaning both day and night.
A robot with which we can see what happens at home when we are not
The remote viewing feature now included in the Roborock S6 MaxVs takes these home cleaning devices to another level of intelligence. Remote viewing can be activated only if the user proactively enables it from the “Camera Features” section in the app. In other words, it is not activated automatically. The reason is to preserve the privacy of the users. Similarly, they can be deactivated by the user at any time within the application.
And speaking of privacy and security, Roborock wanted users to trust this feature and the company. For this they have used an independent third party expert in tests and recognized worldwide. After having undergone different tests, The Roborock S6 MaxV has obtained TUV Rheinland certification in ETSI TS 103645, which means that the product has reached a high level in cybersecurity and protection of user privacy.
