The Roborock S7 MaxV is undoubtedly one of the most, if not the most, advanced robot vacuum cleaners around. It cleans not just your smart home, but also itself, and it now integrates natively with Home Assistant. Previously, owners relied on third-party components, such as Xiaomi Miot For Home Assistant, to get their shiny new gadget talking nicely with the most advanced home automation system. Now, with the launch of Home Assistant Core Version 2022.11, the out-of-the-box Xiaomi Miio integration is all you need.

The Roborock S7 MaxV excels not just at vacuum cleaning, thanks to 5100 Pa of suction power, but is also a capable mop due to its sonic vibration technology. The main differentiator to the cheaper Roborock S7 is the MaxV’s inclusion of ReactiveAI 2.0 Obstacle Avoidance. This robot vacuum cleaner can detect gifts left behind from pets, clothing, and wires.

If you opt for the US$1399.99 Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra, you receive what is almost a fully autonomous system. The Empty Wash Fill Dock cleans the mop attached to the robot vacuum and its underside, refills the water tank, and empties the dust bin. It supports off-peak and fast charging, which is up to 30% faster compared to the conventional dock.
