ECOVACS Improves Window Cleaning Robot



The ECOVACS WINBOT W1 PRO was a smash hit last year with home owners. Clearly, there’s a large amount of big windows in Australia because W1 glass cleaning robot sold in big numbers.

The W1 was a big step in the right direction because it actually worked. Previous models didn’t impress but the 2023 version made a big impression. However, there was one big issue.. the power cable. Many people had to go to great lengths to run extension leads through bushes and past swimming pools to get the W1 powered. It was separate to the safety tether but added complexity to the job.

Now, the ECOVACS WINBOT W2 OMNI comes with its own portable suitcase-style multi-functional station and ONE cord that performs the double task of power and safety line. It is equipped with drop protection mechanisms, a built-in battery for unplugged indoor or outdoor use and automatic wire winding. These are all big time savers.

Reduced airflow speed makes for a quieter performance, enhanced by sound-absorbing cotton. The W2 adapts to variety of window designs including floor-to-ceiling windows, small windows, frameless windows or mirrors, tilted windows and more. W2 OMNI can also adapt to various cleaning situations through four new cleaning modes: Fast, Deep, Spot, and Custom. While Fast mode is perfect for everyday cleaning, performing with high efficiency in a single wipe, the Deep Mode incorporates edge-cleaning which ensures no spot is left unwiped. Spot Mode tackles stubborn areas, and Custom Mode lets the user dictate where WINBOT should clean.

W2 OMNI Intelligent Steady Climbing System

Instead of randomly wiping both sides of the window, leaving streaks and residue behind, W2 OMNI utilises an intelligent navigation system, WIN-SLAM 3.0, to ensure consistent edge-to-edge cleaning. Plus, seamless movement around obstacles. It uses a three-nozzle wide-angle spray technology that dissolves dirt and evenly covers windows without drippage. W2 OMNI’s steady climbing system features 3-point anti-slip, anti-dust driving treads and intelligent gravity compensation which allows the robot to maintain steady rolling across windows.


It has a number of safety system built in to give peace of mind while the device is cleaning at a significant height.
