The Difference Between Smart Cleaning Robot and Vacuum Cleaner

The difference between smart cleaning robot and vacuum cleaner

The household smart cleaning robot is a wireless machine with a disc-shaped body. It operates through charging and can be controlled either by a remote control or an operation panel on the device. It can usually be set for scheduled cleaning and self-charging. There are sensors in front of the machine that can detect obstacles, such as walls or other obstructions, and it will turn and follow different routes based on settings from different manufacturers with planned cleaning areas. Due to its easy operation and convenience, it has gradually become popular and is now commonly used as a modern household appliance.

The vacuum cleaner is mainly composed of three parts: dust collection, suction, and filtration, including a series-excited rectifier motor, a centrifugal fan, a dust filter bag, and vacuum accessories. The typical power of a vacuum cleaner is 400-1000W or higher, and the power of a portable vacuum cleaner is generally 250W and below.

What are the differences between smart cleaning robot and vacuum cleaner?

  • Different cleaning methods: The smart cleaning robot has a disc-shaped appearance, with two small brushes on the front bottom that perform "suction + cleaning + rotation" to clean the floor. It can automatically clean hair and dust from the ground when people are too tired to clean themselves. However, it can't clean large pieces of garbage such as toilet paper, orange peels, and plastic bags. Therefore, if you want to use a smart cleaning robot, you need to maintain good cleanliness habits in your home.

    The vacuum cleaner, on the other hand, operates through high-speed motor rotation to generate a vacuum effect on the inside of the device and uses pressure differentials to draw dusty air into the machine.

  • Different usage scenarios: As its name implies, the smart cleaning robot is primarily used for sweeping floors. Therefore, its usage scenario is relatively narrow, as it is unable to clean areas such as sofas, window gaps, home appliances, and bedding. Although many smart cleaning robots are equipped with intelligent obstacle avoidance functions, in order to work normally, you need to minimize clutter on the floor or move furniture in advance, otherwise, you will still need to clean them yourself.

  • Different user groups: Both products are popular among young people, but in daily use, vacuum cleaners are more commonly used by young people, while smart cleaning robots are more often given to older people.

  • Cleaning method: The vacuum cleaner has a suction motor with a fixed suction force that cleans dust through suction. The dust is collected by the vacuum cleaner. The smart cleaning robot doesn't have a suction motor, but only a roller brush motor on the head to sweep large debris and throw it into the dustbin. The vacuum cleaner can also remove tiny dust particles and purify the air, making it suitable for indoor use.
