The first thing you are going to notice is that the box is absolutely massive, and this is thanks to the hands-free cleaning station. Inside, everything is well packed and padded to ensure that it makes it to you in perfect condition with no issues at all.


Taking everything out of the box and there are the 2x vacuum brushes and 2x mopping pads. While there is already 1x dust bag pre-installed in the station ECOVACS has been kind enough to include a spare one.

The all-in-one OMNI station is rather large and rightly so. The OMNI station is not only the home for the DEEBOT robot, it will also auto-empty the dust box and dirty water. It also fills the robot up with new and clean water and will also clean and dry the mopping pads, ensuring that your robot is always ready to go.


As mentioned, the DEEBOT X1 OMNI is easy to sit up. To get started, just flip the lid on the station and follow the instructions. Even with having to download the APP, it shouldn’t take more than 5 min to have it all up and running. One of great features is that everything is so easy to use, from setting up to maintaining the station and the robot.

7 simple steps will have you up and running within minutes as mentioned. The station needs to be placed with 0.5m of free space on either side and 1.5m of space in front of it. This is to ensure the robot has ample room to maneuver and make it back into the docking area.

The water tanks are easily removed, filled, and emptied. They are also clearly labeled and even different colours so you can easily tell them apart. To remove them, you simply just pull them out by the handles and you are good to either refill or empty as needed.


Both water containers are 4L so you will not have to change them every day! However, depending on how big an area it has to mop will determine how often the waters need to be changed.


Between the two water containers are a little storage area that holds extra mop pads and even a cleaning brush.

Changing out the dust bag is just as easy as changing the water tanks. To open the compartment, there is a button just on the roof of where the robot docks itself. Simply push it and the dust compartment opens up to allow access to the bag for easy changing.

When you first set it all up, the robot will easily find its docking station so it can fill up with water and get ready to mop. After every cleaning, it will return to the station empty the dirty water into the station, empty the dust and then fill up with fresh clean water so it is ready to go. The robot also talks so you will know when it has finished cleaning and is about to return to the station.


DEEBOT Closer Look

The Deebot itself has quite a bit going on for itself. From vacuuming and mopping, it takes a lot of other features to make this all happen as smoothly as it does. It has multiple sensors, cameras, and even a bumper for the odd occasion when it bumps into something trying to make sure it is cleaning as much of your floor as possible.


Not only do the cameras on the front map out your house, you can also use the app to video the cameras in real-time. You can even use them to control the Deebot and move it around the house. Combine this with the inbuilt speakers and you can talk to your favorite animals or person!


The top cover of the Deebot is held on by magnets and comes off as easily as you would expect. Once you take the cover off you can access the dust box which also just lifts right out for easy changing. You will also find the power button and wifi connect button under the cover. Again, setup is easy and all the instructions are located under the lid of the OMNI station that way you can never lose them.

It really is amazing just how easy everything is to change around. The dust box literally just lifts right out and then slots back into place equally as easily.

The dust brushes and mopping pads just pop onto the bottom of the Deebot! They can also be removed just as easily when it comes time to change them! The dust brushes clip into place whereas the mop pads are magnetic so they are even easier to change and for good reason. The mop pads will get dirty after a few uses and will need to be changed. Remember, there are spares stored between the water jugs in the station and it only takes a few seconds to change them.

Even the vacuum brush is easily removed. Simply push the two clips in to remove the cover and just take the brush right out for easy cleaning.

Having everything so easily accessible and cleanable makes the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI an absolute pleasure to use. It also means that you will be able to prolong its longevity of it and make sure that it is always running as best possible.

As with both the OMNI station and Deebot, the APP is also easy to set up and get using. When you first go to use the Deebot X1 OMNI, you will be instructed to download the app and you will need to set up an account to start making use of it.

The App will let you start the auto cleaning of your house function. You can also enter the smart cleaning mode which will let you specify what rooms and areas you want to have cleaned and you can also tell the Deebot to recharge so that its batteries won’t die while cleaning. Also, this is where you will enter the video mode that lets you see in real-time where the robot is, what it is doing, and even take pics and videos.

It does take a little bit of time to get used to the APP but once you do, you will be able to make the most of it.

The Deebot can also be voice-activated so you don’t even need to use the app at times, you can simply use the voice commands to use it. The Troemapping 2.0 and AIVI 3D features will make sure that Deebot is cleaning as much of your house as it can.

It also has two mod pads to offer a wider area of cleaning at a time. The Deebot itself will go up and down the room multiple times and you can even see what path it takes on the app.
