(Bangkok – May 23rd, 2019) THrobotics Co., Ltd., the exclusive distributor of leading global consumer robot iRobot® from the United States, holds “iRobot The All New Roomba – Change the Way You Clean Forever” event to introduce to Thai consumers the brand’s latest vacuuming robot “iRobot Roomba i7+”, which is known as the most cutting-edge model with a number of advances and has gained success across the globe since its release.

Mr. Hajime Hikino, Vice President and General Manager, iRobot Corporation Asia-Pacific, said, “iRobot was founded in 1990 by Massachusetts Institute of Technology roboticists who have committed to the vision of making practical robots a reality. Today, iRobot is successfully known as a pioneering leader in the vacuuming robot industry with more than 25 million robots sold over 60 countries and a portfolio of 1,000 patents worldwide. As of now, the Roomba i7+ robot is considered the smartest and most efficient iRobot model to date.”
Mr. Apichat Leenutaphong, President of THrobotics and Sharich Holding Group, said, “The success of THrobotics in Thai vacuuming robot market for the past 8 years is the result of our efforts in communicating correct information about products’ practical values to customers, and to ensure them that iRobot’s vacuuming robot is way more than just a luxury gadget. At the same time, we carry out sales promotion activities and expand distribution channels at department stores and online marketplaces to reach wider groups of customers and achieve improved sales results. We believe the launch of iRobot Roomba i7+ robots will provide Thai consumers, both new generation and families, greater smart living.”
“iRobot maintains a strong customer base in Thailand as its best-in-class quality and service are constantly emphasized. One of the evident proofs is that customers who bought our robot 8 years ago are still enjoying the robots’ capabilities to this day. We also continue to improve our aftersales service which is key to our business. Our staffs are directly trained from iRobot US headquarter. Meanwhile, our maintenance service is operated by experienced robotic engineers who are well-versed in identifying issues and solutions in order to assist our customers accordingly,” Apichat added.

Mr. Natee Samakkeeyakul, Business Director of THrobotics said “iRobot Roomba i7+ consists of a full spectrum of advanced features that distinguish it from other vacuum robots. As the exclusive distributor, we believe that iRobot innovations not only are the best vacuum solutions out there, but also a practical helper that ensures people can achieve more in their lives. With advanced smart technology like the Imprint™ Smart Mapping, the Roomba i7+ cleverly cleans as it continually adapts to human routines and the lay of your home, keeps looking for the most efficient path, and accommodates a wide variety of floor plans. It maps its surroundings while keeping track of where it’s been and where it needs to clean while making way around using a navigation system to figure out the best way to clean each room via the history report.

A new accomplishment of smart living innovation, iRobot Roomba i7+ will transform the way of house vacuuming and build an ecosystem of robots and technologies that truly enable the smart home.”

“As issues regarding dusts and health continue to worry residents in urban areas, the vacuuming robot technology has become common and been viewed as a necessary item for household. We believe that our wide variety of products which cater to different groups of consumers and the cutting-edge characteristics of iRobot innovations will definitely help consumers achieve smarter and more convenient house cleaning experience,” Mr. Natee added.

The iRobot Roomba® i7+ vacuuming robot takes convenience to a whole new level with the first-of-its-kind Clean Base™ Automatic Dirt Disposal, which automatically empties the contents of the Roomba i7+ dust bin into the Clean Base. Doubling as the robot’s charging station, the Clean Base takes the dirty work out of vacuuming, storing debris in an enclosed bag, and trapping dirt and dust so it can’t escape into the air. When the bag is full, the user is notified via the iRobot HOME App. Then, they simply pull it out of the Clean Base and replace with a new one. The bag can hold 30 bins of debris, so users don’t have to think about vacuuming for weeks at a time.

Ushering in a new era of consumer robots, the Roomba i7+ allows customers to clean specific rooms in the home. Using Imprint™ Smart Mapping, the Roomba i7+ gets to know the home’s floor plan, giving customers total control to choose which specific rooms are cleaned and when. The robot learns every room – remembering up to 10 different floor plans – so users can carry their robot to another floor or a separate home, where the robot will recognize its location and clean as instructed. iRobot’s patented iAdapt® 3.0 Navigation with vSLAM® technology helps the Roomba i7+ seamlessly and efficiently navigate the home by keeping track of where it's been and where it has yet to clean. The Roomba i7+ also adapts to changing home environments, so it always knows the best way to clean.

The Roomba i7+ is packed with innovative technologies that work together for a clean home every day. It starts with the premium 3-Stage Cleaning System and Dual Multi-Surface Rubber Brushes. Smart navigation and Dirt Detect™ technology work together to cover a floor and focus on the areas that need it most. And because it’s Wi-Fi® connected, users can control and schedule cleanings on the Roomba i7+ with the iRobot HOME App, or using their voice when paired with Alexa™ enabled devices or the Google Assistant. For example, just say, “Alexa, ask Roomba to clean my kitchen,” and the Roomba i7+ will efficiently find its way to the appropriate room to clean. Once finished, the robot will return to its base to charge and automatically empty its contents when paired with the Clean Base™ Automatic Dirt Disposal.

The flexible rubber brushes hug the floor to clean everything from small particles, like dust and dirt, to hair and large debris. Featuring a low-profile design to clean under furniture and along toe kicks, the Roomba i7+ robots use a High-Efficiency Filter to capture 99 percent of pollen, mold, dust mites, and cat and dog allergens.

Joining the iRobot Roomba i7+ launching event at Siam Paragon are iRobot customers and high-profile celebrities, namely Panward “Peuy” Hemmanee with husband Nithi and son Assadin “Prod” Boonyaratglin; Sopidnapa “Jeab” Choompanee; Kornkanok “Lek” Yongsakul; Sikanya “Pau” Saktidej Bhanubandh; Chayada “Bo” Lewchalermwong; Kamolsut Dabbaransi; Onchuma Durongdej; Atcha Charoenrasmikiat; Krit “Kong” Jirakiatwattana; Chanadda Chirathivat, and more.
