Bored of vacuuming? Wish you could come home to a spotless house? If so we might just have the answer…

Let our VR200 Robot Vacuum Cleaner do the cleaning for you
Living

When you’re short of time or putting the hours in at work, the first thing that often suffers is the cleanliness of your home – running around with your vacuum is the last thing on your mind!  While some people are good at boxing out time at weekends to crack through the chores, the reality for many is you have better things to do – or you’d simply rather relax and catch up on the week.

That’s why we are putting homeowners in control of cleaning their house, and their free time, with the launch of an app for our innovative Kobold Robot.

A robot that can vacuum your home?

The Kobold VR200 is an automated robot vacuum cleaner that uses intelligent laser navigation technology to clean the home efficiently, section by section, room by room, either clearing obstacles or manoeuvring around them. Thanks to its clever D-shape design and effective side brushes, the Kobold VR200 cleans right into corners and along walls and, by being just 9 centimetres high, it can easily vacuum under furniture.

And an app to activate the robot while I'm not there?

Newly launched, the app allows robot owners to activate cleaning remotely. It can also be used as a remote control for the Kobold VR200, providing push notifications when cleaning is complete and allows users to programme a schedule and activate the Eco option.

 You can choose to receive notifications of how the job’s going and the Kobold Robot app will let you know when it’s complete, so you can look forward to returning home to clean floors and carpets.

The VR200 uses innovative, circular brushes that rotate 30 times per second to remove dirt particles, ensuring optimum cleaning on all types of surface, and can cover up to 120sqm on a single charge. It makes light work of removing worn in and unwanted pet hair.

How can I get the app?

The Kobold Robot app is available for iOS devices (version 8.0 and above) and Android devices (version 4.0 and above) and is compatible with all Kobold VR200 models, although a free software enhancement is required to enable compatibility with models purchased before September 2016.
