It’s been a little over three years since Pete and I started down our journey of making our home smarter. Having a smart home just makes sense for us and our lifestyle because it saves time for us on the day to day stuff. This allows us to have more fun! Thank you to Dyson for partnering with us for this post.
I am so excited about our latest smart home find. We have smart door locks, a self-cleaning cat litter box, apps that control pretty much everything, and now our housekeeping is stepping up to the plate with the Dyson 360 Eye™ robotic vacuum!
The Dyson 360 Eye™ robot was everything I dreamed it would be, especially knowing that it was made by Dyson. This little robot is compact and stylish, which seems silly, but it is something that you have in your home for all to see so looks count. Weighing in at only 3.5 pounds it is really powerful too, especially for its compact size.
Here are more specs about it:
Power: Housed inside the body of the Dyson 360 Eye™ robot is the Dyson digital motor V2. Spinning at up to 78,000rpm, this energy efficient motor generates twice the suction of any robot vacuum 1 . Dyson’s robot uses Radial Root Cyclone™ technology to effectively separate dust and dirt, capturing dirt smaller than the width of a human hair.
Vision: Many robotic vacuum cleaners rely on sensors to find their way around a room. The Dyson 360 Eye™ robot sees its environment using a 360° vision system. The camera takes up to 30 frames per second – enabling the robot to effectively capture its surroundings. The machine then builds a detailed floor plan to intelligently and systematically navigate around a room and track its position – so it knows where it is in the room, where it is yet to clean, and uses infrared sensors to detect where obstacles lie. This allows the robot to clean intelligently, moving in an efficient, systematic pattern.
Intelligence: The Dyson Link app allows owners to view all of their Dyson connected machines, starting with the Dyson 360 Eye™ robot, but also the Dyson Pure Cool™ Link purifier fan and onwards to any other Dyson connected machines. Selecting the Dyson 360 Eye gives owners access to start, pause and stop their robot, view maps and statistics of cleaning sessions, and schedule single or daily cleans. And should you ever need it, the Dyson Link app has easy-to- follow troubleshooting guides. With all of this information so readily available, users can stay on top of their cleaning and take action remotely – whether they are home, at the office, or across the world.
It is priced at $999.99 and it runs for approximately 40 minutes. When the battery is low, it will self-dock, charge, and resume cleaning where it left off. We all sat and watched it (with the cats too of course) and it is pretty fun watching it dock and charge itself.
We immediately put it to the test and Pete downloaded the Dyson Link App. Then we unboxed it and got it going!
