Just like a typical robot-based vacuum cleaner, the i5 Robot Vacuum comes with a three-stage cleaning system.

Controlling i5 Robot Vacuum is pretty easy. It comes with a native mobile app for both iOS & Android which is available in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese. You can control everything using the same app even when you're not around. As the robot-based vacuum cleaner gets connected to Wi-Fi, you can control it while you're in office too.
Besides a mobile app, you can control the i5 Robot Vacuum using a remote control and also with the buttons on the top. Now, let's take a look at the key features.
