In Review: Housmile Robotic Vacuum Cleaner with Drop-Sensing Technology

Housmile Robotic Vacuum Cleaner with Drop-Sensing Technology

If you have always wanted a robot vacuum but feel the prices of other well-known brands are prohibitive, then the robo vac from Housmile is something you should check out. Like any cleaner, the Housmile 3071C has its strengths and weaknesses. That said, customers feedback indicates that this product is a worthy purchase. Read this article review to learn more about the budget-friendly robot vacuum.

At $100 level, it does not have all the technological bells and whistles of high-end machines. However, people seem very satisfied with the end result. The Housmile comes with two settings: big room and small room. You can easily choose by click the switch once or twice. In the small room mode, which is ideal for bedroom, the cleaner runs for 30 minutes. When the second mode is selected, the little bot can work for 60 minutes. It is the mode you would want to use when dealing with your living room. Each mode has different cleaning pattern.

The Housmile vacuum cleaner is powered by a 1260 mAh Li-ion battery which is a great thing. Robot vacuums that are priced under $100 tend to use those nickel varieties. When fully charged, the battery provides up to 1.5 hrs of cleaning time, meaning it can run several cycles before it needs recharging. The battery takes three to five hours to get a full charge. Unlike higher-end models, this robotic vacuum machine does not go back to recharge itself. It does not come with a docking station. Manual charging is required using the adapter provided. However, at this price point, do not expect highly. There is an indicator light that will tell you when the battery is low.

The cleaning robot is suitable for small houses or apartments. It works best on hard floor and low-pile carpet. It would not do any deep cleaning but with only 1000Pa suction power, it still gets the job done. Equipped with two side brushes, people have been impressed with how much dirt and pet hair it can pick up. The smart cleaner automatically adjusts to multi-surface cleaning. Its ability to transition between different types of surfaces is definitely another plus point of this cleaner.

It can work along the door and wall. It also does not appear to have an issue sucking up dirt in corners and other areas that many robot vacuum cleaners do not perform well. The small footage (9.9″x9.8″x2.9″) enables it to collect dust and dirt that are underneath bed and sofa. This machine is equipped with fall prevention sensors. When steps are detected, it automatically turns around and continues with its cleaning. It will also change direction when encountering obstacles. Weighing 1.17 kg, this vac is lightweight. You can easily pick it up and take it to different rooms.

AC power adapter, cleaning tool, extra filters, extra brushes, screws, mini screwdriver, and user manual are all included in the box. Simply put, the package includes everything you need to get it set up. Assembly would not be a big challenge that some owners have commented that it only took a few minutes to bring the robot to life. This vacuum cleaner is also easy to clean. The dirt collection compartment is not large but this is to be expected. With 650 ml capacity, it still holds a good amount of dirt. More importantly, the dust tank can be easily accessed and cleared by opening up the case on the top of the machine.

When it comes to robotic vacuum cleaners, the Housmile 3071C is definitely not the fanciest machine. Like other affordable models, it lacks fancy features like camera-based navigation or smartphone tracking. The RolliBot BL618, for instance, even comes with a detachable mop and an onboard UV light. It cannot be argued however, that most of the reviews on the cleaner are positive. People have been impressed with the ease of use of the bot vac. As this time of writing, the mini size robotic vacuum has a strong 4.6/5 star rating on Amazon.

In terms of cleaning ability, it seems to work very well for an inexpensive model. It can get stuck now and then so a little bit of supervision is still required but the same issue also applies to any robotic vacuum. These days, there are many options when it comes to robotic cleaners. But with all those being said, if an automatic vacuum machine is what you want, but you do not want to spend a lot, then this entry level robot vacuum from Housmile is worth considering. Not perfect, but it serves its purpose.
