I think the term “robot vacuums” is now officially obsolete. That’s because these devices that started out as simple vacuums have evolved into multipurpose Cleaning centres that can now vacuum, mop, clean themselves and empty dirty water, plus dump out their own dustbins. One of the newest floor Cleaning centres is the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI. ECOVACS is sponsoring this post and has provided me with a test unit to review in my home. Even so, they have not told me what I have to say or what I can’t say about this bot, so in my review I’ll tell you what it can do, how well I think it works, about its special features and if I think it could be a good investment for you.

• Designer look
• Yiko built in voice assistant


The ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI has two main components: the dual vacuum and mopping robot, plus the OMNI station or base station. Let’s get a closer look…

The bot is about standard robot vacuum size. It’s got a roller brush underneath, and two corner brushes you’ll need to snap on when you unbox it. The design is a bit new, with a pretty brushed silver cover that lifts right off to reveal the onboard dustbin. The water tank in this bot is not visible or accessible… but that’s ok because your base station is going to take care of that for you.

The mop has been redesigned… gone is the one-piece floating plate with cloth, and in its place are two detachable round pads with little microfibre cloths that attach securely with special velcro. This new mopping format is designed to scrub, not just wipe…

There’s a camera on the front… and we’ll get to more on both that and the improved mopping shortly.

OMNI station: charging, Cleaning, refilling

The OMNI Station is a tall drink of water; yes it’s quite large and you’re definitely going to need a dedicated place to put it, near a plug and with enough space for the bot to back in and out.

Under the lid on the OMNI station here are three things, a clean water tank, a dirty water tank, a little storage drawer for brushes, extra mopping pads and vacuum bags; this is a thoughtful detail I appreciate so everything can stay on one place. The vacuum bag bin is now a small drawer in the front of the OMNI station.

Overall the designers at ECOVACS have done a great job here; the unit is a little more attractive than some other similar products. And everything is thoughtfully accessible.

Getting started with ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI

To get things started you will need the ECOVACS app where you’ll sign into or sign up for an account then add your robot. This takes just seconds and I was ready to clean in less than a minute.

The first order of business is to map your home. Getting a map will allow your bot to recognize rooms and spaces, avoid furniture and obstacles, and to manage room-by-room Cleaning schedules.
