SYDNEY, Australia – September, 10 2015 –Samsung Electronics Australia has today announced the launch of two new robotic vacuum cleaner ranges that are designed to take the hassle out of daily cleaning for Australian consumers. Samsung’s new robotic cleaners are designed to help save time and make vacuuming an easy chore for Australians, who can spend more than an hour a day doing housework1.
The new robotic vac lineup features a suction model, the POWERbot VR9200, engineered for a deep and thorough clean across a range of carpets and surfaces, as well as two dusting and sweeping models (VR5000 Point Clean and VR5000 Light) that are great for homes with hard floor surfaces. All products have been tailored to make floor care easy for Australians seeking a smart way to clean.
“Australians can spend more than an hour a day doing house work, when many would rather spend time doing things they love. The latest range of Samsung POWERbot robotic vacuum cleaners represent another step in our efforts to help customers take the hassle out of cleaning and rediscover what they love doing.” said Mike Lilly, Head of Home Appliances, Samsung Electronics Australia.
The new POWERbot VR9200 (SR20J9250U) is Wi-Fi capable to give users the ability to clean their floor from almost anywhere with the push a button from their compatible smartphone devices through the Samsung Home Appliances App*. This means that people can operate the robotic vacuum from their workplace, while at the supermarket, or while out and about.
Whether it’s cleaning up after entertaining, pet hair, or a dirty floor in a busy household, the settings for the latest range can deliver a clean to suit many lifestyles. With Samsung Visionary MappingTM the latest robotic vacuums can memorise a household floorplan to help provide a consistent and efficient clean.
“Our new POWERbot range will offer Australians a convenient way to clean, to help save them time, and are suited to most Australian lifestyles and help save people time.” Lilly added.
The VR5000 and POWERbot VR9200 operate with Point Clean comes with the added benefit of a remote control, which gives users the option to guide the vac to a particularly dusty spot in need of special attention. Once finished, the robotic cleaners can be set to autonomously return to the docking station to recharge – another feature that makes the range a smart option for people seeking ease-of-use and those who would rather spend more time doing other things.
