Roborock's robot vacuum cleaners are among the favourites of Home Assistant's users. Starting today, you might be able to snag one for yourself at a discounted price, thanks to Roborock's Black Friday deals. The Q7 Max+ includes the basic Auto-Empty Dock Pure can keep the robot vacuum going for up to seven weeks. It navigates your home using LiDAR and, using the app, you can add furniture and floor materials to recreate your home virtually. Home Assistant integrates with the Q7 Max+, as is confirmed in this GitHub issue. As for performance, it has a maximum suction power of 4200 Pa, and can run up to three hours of a single charge.
Next on the list are two Roborock S7 MaxV models, namely the S7 MaxV and S7 MaxV Plus. These luxury models feature a AI-powered cameras that help them navigate past clothing and cables. They automatically detect carpets and can appropriately boost the suction power, which goes up to 5100 Pa. The mop on these models is still of the sonic vibration variety. It can scrub at up to 3000 cycles per minute and will actually remove some of the more persistent stains on hard flooring. For a more hands-off experience, the mop retracts whenever a carpet is detected. The standard Roborock S7 MaxV models comes with just a charging dock, whereas the S7 MaxV+ comes with the Auto-Empty Dock. The vacuum unit itself is identical on both models, and it is possible to purchase the Auto-Empty Dock at a later date.
