bObsweep Opens Doors to Integrated Smart Home Robotics

Robovac Maker Creates Custom-Made Charging Structure and Smart Home Automation System that Gives Robotic Vacuums a Hideaway in the Home

SAN FRANCISCO, April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Canadian robotics company bObsweep — makers of the strongest robotic vacuum in the industry, PetHair Plus — has created a structure that seamlessly integrates robotic vacuums into the interior architecture of the home. Robotic vacuums can now automatically recharge in a robovac "garage" carved out beneath kitchen base cabinets.


bObsweep's popular line of robotic vacuums currently self-charge via independent charging stations plugged into the user's wall outlet. The all-new smart home garage, the very first of its kind for robotic vacuums, seamlessly adapts the charging station's wireless technology into the interior of the home kitchen.

Though the current structure measures at about 24" x 24" x 5", the robovac garage can be custom made to fit any builder's blueprint. With an adaptable, customizable product, bObsweep is well positioned to lead the way as robotic vacuums move into the modern home in ever greater numbers.

Before the smart home revolution, homeowners kept bulky standing vacuums in closets. When robotic vacuums transformed the appliance industry, the space for vacuums moved out of the closet and onto a random space on the floor, anchored by the charging station's access to an outlet. bObsweep's latest innovation resolves the storage issue — robotic vacuums now have a wired, specified, and inconspicuous space they can tuck themselves into when not in use.

Building on the convenience of heating, air conditioning and security systems that have automated modern homes, bObsweep is also adapting the robovac's remote control interface to a central control pad in the home for an even more comprehensive smart home experience. Homeowners will be able to schedule cleaning times for their robotic vacuums and remotely adjust speeds, cleaning intensity and any other settings to meet their unique preferences.

Out of sight and out of mind — by integrating robotic vacuums into the kitchen design, bObsweep gives homeowners the luxury of a self-cleaning home without all the clutter.
