Eufy X8 Pro: Features
Deep Cleaning System
The Eufy Clean X8 Pro robotic vacuum is equipped with an advanced deep cleaning system, featuring Twin-Turbine suction technology and an innovative Active Detangling roller brush. It is specifically engineered to provide thorough cleaning on all types of flooring, with a special focus on carpets. This makes it an excellent choice for pet owners, as it effectively picks up pet hair and dander, ensuring a clean and allergen-free environment.
Featuring a powerful twin turbine system, the X8 Pro's enhanced 2 x 4,000 Pa suction power offers almost double the suction power of its predecessor, the X8 Hybrid. This extra power makes it capable of extracting hair embedded deep within carpets after just one pass.
Active Detangling Roller Brush
Say goodbye to having to detangle hair from the rollerbrush. Boasting a 99.7% pet hair detangle rate, the X8 Pro's V-shaped roller brush with high density bristles greatly reduces the amount of hair that gets wound around it during cleaning. When the X8 Pro returns to its base, it self-cleans with patent-pending anti-tangling technology, ensuring no hair gets stuck, and it is ready for the next cleaning session.
The X8 Pro features a self-empty station that efficiently traps 99.9% of dust and debris, significantly reducing dust exposure. Its impressive 2.5L capacity, combined with a bacteriostatic dust bag, allows for the safe storage of dust and debris for up to 45 days. Additionally, it offers a customisable empty frequency setting, enabling users to adjust their experience according to their individual preferences.
iPath Laser Navigation
With iPath Laser Navigation, the X8 Pro generates accurate maps for efficient cleaning, even in areas with low lighting. It reaches every corner of the home, including challenging areas such as between chair legs, beneath sofas, and around pet bowls.
What else was included in eufy's launch?
As well as the four new smart cameras with AI cross-tracking and improved security, it was also announced yesterday that there were a series of upgrades to the recently launched eufy X9 Pro. These included features such as:
Edge-Hugging Deep Mopping
This enabled the Robovac to execute a swing motion and expand its cleaning reach. It is designed to meticulously clean the edges of the room and effectively eliminate dirt from hard-to-reach gaps.
Water Level Detection
This keeps user informed about the water tank's status with a newly added watertank demonstration icon on eufy Clean App. If the water level is not enough to complete a mopping task, a reminder will be sent to the user for replenishing the water to ensure uninterrupted cleaning.
Smart No-Go Zones
The user will receive a no-go zone recommendation if the robovac gets stuck in a certain place several times or tentatively have risks of falling, and the app will recommend setting this specific area as No-go Zone.
