I am really excited to see Wyze robo Vaccum. Still, I would hold off buying it till next year. Hope to see more features like multi floor mapping, object detection and most importantly, addition of self emptying feature.
Keep up the great work.
[Mod Edit]: Title Modified to Enhance Search Clarity. This topic can encompass all upgraded hardware features that are not compatible with the current vacuum.
Ideally, a self emptying bin and feature would be compatible with the first robot vacuum and future models so that we don’t have to upgrade the vacuum to utilize this feature. This one is really big for me as I have pets and lots of hair that fil up robot vacuuma quickly. It’s been really hard to make a decision about purchasing the wyze vacuum when there is now a roomba with the self emptying system…
Also, it would be neat to be able to “draw” boundary lines on the map in the phone application. TheNeato Botvac d7 had this feature and you can actually draw lines in real time as the vacuum is cleaning to keep it from going certain places!
You can vote for multiple floor support here. It’s supposed to be added in the future.
It should already have the ability to create rooms and you can clean a certain designated room according to a schedule too. Or it’s supposed to come in an update later if you don’t see that option now.
A lot of robot vacuums have a feature where depending on the surface, the robot can sense the floor type and change the suction strength. I believe there are the proper sensors for this to be possible.
I have 3 types of flooring in my house, carpet, hardwood and tile. It would be great to have the ability to set the suction to high in areas where there is carpet and silent when it’s on the hardwood and tile.
It would be great if your engineers could redesign the piece of plastic that holds the brush in place to include a cattle guard. A cattle guard is a device when attached to a train that keeps the train from running over cattle. In the case of the vacuum it would hopefully stop the vacuum from sucking up cat toys and other items shoestrings phone charging wires plastic bags so on and so forth. Another thing that would be nice if in front of the brush there was a sniffer that would suck up hairballs and dust balls before they hit the brush instead of getting all tangled up in the brush
I would love to see replaceable faceplates offered for the Wyze Vaccuum. Although adding the virtual walls, etc is a great option to keep it from places where it will get stuck, our Vaccuum has already gotten scratches within two days of use. It’s really quite disappointing for an expensive product to look like that so quickly. Having replaceable plates would make it much easier to resolve the issue and keep the vacuum looking fresh and sleek.
