What makes this product better than most others is that it uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and comes with a free smartphone-app. The AI ensures that the robot intelligently manages all the functions and maps the surface accurately. Additionally, it also allows the robot to sense the edges irrespective of the frame. Its smartphone app not just works as a remote control, but also sends notifications, such as when the job is done or an alert.

Along with these two, it has all other features that you can expect from a premium window cleaning robot, including ultrasonic sprayer, Bluetooth functionality, massive cleaning area, as well as a compact form factor.

In fact, its unique ultrasonic sprayer is also its standout feature, making it more efficient than others. The HOBOT-298’s sprays water or detergent onto the surface it is actively cleaning. This way it gets rid of the dirt. Additionally, the attached microfiber cloth quickly dries the cleaned surface to give you a polished and shiny glass.

Easy to set up

It is quick and easy to set it up as well. All you have to do is fill the water tank, fix the microfiber cloth, place it on the surface and switch on the power. Before you switch it on, don’t forget to fix the safety cord to a safe place to ensure the robot doesn’t get damage, in case, it falls.

The robot also comes with several other safety features to keep it from falling, such as a UPS battery. This battery makes the robot stick to the glass for up to 20 minutes, if the power fails. Also, in case of a power failure, the robot will beep and flash a warning light.

Talking about where it lacks, like with any other window cleaning robot, HOBOT-298 also works well on larger window panes. It may not as well on smaller glasses, still it does the best a robot can do. Another thing that may prove inconvenient is that you need to manually remove the built-up grime to ensure the smooth functioning of the robot.

Despite these shortcomings, HOBOT-298 is a great product that does its job smartly and efficiently. It not only saves you time and effort, but gives you a shiny glass as well, making it a perfect choice for your home or office.
