Cleaning windows or even house glass separators is a very tiring, exhausting and time-consuming process that takes a lot of work, time and energy, especially when it looks like your windows/glass will never be completely clean. However, by using the HOBOT-388 Smart Window Cleaning Robot, which might very well be the perfect tool for the job, not only can you save some of your precious time on a day-by-day basis, but also some very needed energy that you can spend anywhere else instead.
The HOBOT-388 is a smart window cleaning robot that features the company’s (HOBOT Technology Inc.) new patented ultrasonic water spray nozzle, which allows the robot to easily nebulize water to 15μm mists and then spray them evenly on the glass, just like the effect of when a human exhales on a window/glass.
Let’s have a fully detailed look at the HOBOT-388 Smart Window Cleaning Robot and check its design, specs, and all of its features.
DESIGN & SPECS
First of all, the HOBOT-388 is a small, compact, smart window cleaning robot that measures 11.6 inches long by 5.8 inches wide by 3.7 inches tall (295×148×95 mm), weighing 32.27 oz. (915g).
The HOBOT-388 features a stylish and slim design, featuring flat lines within its compact and round body.
Additionally, it’s slim design also features two card ventilation holes (one at each side) that also work as a pair of handy grips, which allow users to have a sturdy grip over their HOBOT-388, ultimately making it super easy for them to hold on tightly to the robot.
This smart window cleaning robot comes equipped with a highly-efficient Brushless DC Motor and a Metal Fan that are both highly durable, not only working together at a very low noise, but also offering the HOBOT-388 a long life expectancy.
Working at a very low noise, the HOBOT-388 operates at the same noise level of a Vacuum Cleaner (70 dB), and can only be properly heard when staying close to it, at around 3.28 ft. (1 m) distance.
Furthermore, the HOBOT-388 also comes equipped with two specially-design cleaning wheels that allow it to move freely and smoothly on window surfaces indoors and outdoors to polish the dust away, without ever leaving any tracks by using its unique system of surface movements.
It also integrates a high-quality microfiber cloth material within its cleaning wheels that’s made of very fine and soft synthetic fabric strands, thus making it perfect for cleaning glass, while also allowing the robot to easily remove any dust and dirt from windows/glass with ease, all without ever leaving a mark or scratch.
The HOBOT-388 also comes equipped with a Replaceable Water Tank that can be easily swapped by simply removing two small screws, which is something that’s super convenient to do whenever its patented ultrasonic spray nozzle gets clogged.
After replacing its easy-to-remove water tank, the HOBOT-388 will start working as new once again.
Lastly, this smart window cleaning robot also comes with an included 14.76 ft. (4.5 m) safety rope that can withstand up to 200KG of force. By tying its safety rope to its indoor fixture, you can keep your HOBOT-388 completely safe during each and every use.
The HOBOT-388 features a very simple and intuitive interface, which is mainly focused on its single Power Button, which is located at the very top of the device (close to the front side).
With it, users are offered a simple one-button easy start that allows them to turn the device On or Off with no struggle whatsoever.
Furthermore, there’s also an Extra Secure DC Power Connection port at the very top (also close to the front side) that keeps the HOBOT-388 wired to power to ensure that users have a carefree experience.
Not only that, but this smart window cleaning robot comes with an included 16.40 ft. (5 m) extra-long power cable that allows the HOBOT-388 to work on a large area or even when your home’s power outlet is far from the window.
Be aware that this window cleaning robot only works with its power cord.
The HOBOT-388 Smart Window Cleaning Robot features an Input Voltage of 100-240V, working at 50/60Hz, a Power consumption of 90W and comes with a total of three (x3) Safety Certifications, including CE, FCC, RoHS.
Additionally, the HOBOT-388 also comes equipped with a built-in UPS. While its screw-in DC power jack design can prevent the robot from losing power, its embedded UPS (Uninterrupted Power System) allows the robot to stay in its current position if it ever gets disconnected from its power cord.
This ultimately prevents the HOBOT-388 from falling off any window, while also creating an alerting sound that lasts for a total of 20 minutes to let users know about its “power disconnect” state.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The HOBOT-388 works thanks to its AI Technology V4.0, which is used for drawing human intelligence in order to achieve a high cleaning performance.
The robot works on multiple surfaces and on any glass you can think of, meaning it is perfectly suitable for glasses of any thickness. It comes equipped with a built-in high-volume centrifugal pump that constantly supplies the robot with negative pressure, allowing the HOBOT-388 to overcome small air leakages and move well on any surface, even rough ones.
The HOBOT-388 also comes equipped with a powerful vacuum motor that easily sucks out a large portion of the dust from your windows/glass, while also helping the robot’s two microfiber-cloth cleaning wheels to remove any impurities along the way.
Thanks to its AI (Artificial Intelligence) Smart Route Plan, this smart window cleaning robot works in a rotating/zigzag cleaning pattern and will always stop automatically upon finishing cleaning. This way, the HOBOT-388 moves horizontally from top to bottom and cleans each window thoroughly.
As mentioned at the beginning of this article/review, the HOBOT-388 features a new patented ultrasonic water spray nozzle, which allows the robot to easily nebulize water to 15μm mists and then spray them evenly on the glass, just like the effect of when a human exhales on a window/glass, all without leaving any watermarks.
This water spray works automatically and right after it occurs, the robot simply walks over those sprayed areas and cleans them to perfection.
Furthermore, while the HOBOT-388 works flawlessly with the company’s HOBOT Window Detergent – a specially formulated mix to work with the HOBOT-388’s patented ultrasonic spray nozzle – this smart window cleaning robot also works perfectly fine with pure water.
The HOBOT-388 should only be used in sunny days, and it should be used to “dry-clean” first, and only then “wet-clean” after the first dry-cleaning round.
Firstly, its dry cloth will help to wipe off the dust from your windows/glass, and then, it will pulverize the glass surface with its automatic mist/spray to completely clean the entire glass surface.
Pressure Change Detection
The HOBOT-388 is also equipped with a pressure change detection module that automatically reverse’s the robot’s movement whenever there’s a big pressure change, thus keeping the HOBOT-388 perfectly stable while working to clean your windows.
This way, the robot will never fall of the edge of any window or glass.
Automatic Initialization Check
The HOBOT-388 also runs a series of function checks and environment checks before ever running each task, which ultimately ensures users always get the best possible performance from it, as well as the best possible results.
SMARTPHONE COMPANION APP – HOBOT APP
Thanks to AI-technology, the HOBOT-388 can be fully controlled via its Smartphone Companion App, simply called the Hobot App. Furthermore, this robot also comes with its proprietary Remote Control, which also gives users another option to control their smart window cleaning robot.
The Hobot App features a total of three (x3) different Smart AI Programs for automatic cleaning of any glass surfaces.
The HOBOT-388 is a very reliable smart window cleaning robot that features an automatic ultrasonic water spray that nebulizes small water mists and sprays them evenly on glass.
While its built-in high-volume centrifugal pump constantly supplies the robot with negative pressure to overcome small air leakages and move well on any surface, its AI Smart Route Plan keeps the robot working in a rotating/zigzag cleaning pattern, which will always stop automatically upon finishing cleaning.
