Introduction

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra is truly a combination of a vacuum cleaner and a floor cleaner. And after the robot does its already standard job – vacuuming and washing the floors – it goes to the docking station and empties its own trash can, cleans the mop and refills the built-in water tank.

With this smart robot vacuum cleaner, the owner has nothing to do, except enjoy the cleanliness of the space left by the S7 MaxV Ultra , which you can already buy in Croatia on the Roborock official webshop .


Design

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra is actually a combination of the independent robot floor cleaner S7 MaxV (the model is also available with a conventional charging port) with Roborock's washing port and charging (docking station). The dock, which measures 42.16 x 50.29 x 41.91 centimeters or 16.6 x 19.8 x 16.5 inches, is already impressive at first glance.

The station contains a 3-liter clean water tank, a 2.3-liter dirty water tank, and a 2.5-liter dust bag. And it also serves as a charging base for the robotic vacuum cleaner S7 MaxV . Interestingly, the charger has an energy saving system, so it can be set to charge the robot only in hours when electricity costs less.

The Roborock S7 MaxV robot itself is visually very similar to its competitors. It is flat and round in shape and measures 35.05 centimeters (13.8 inches) in diameter and is 9.65 centimeters (3.8 inches) tall. The robot is equipped with a LIDAR scanner located on the tower and a front camera that helps it navigate. It is interesting that the camera can also be used to monitor the rooms in which it is being cleaned, and it is controlled remotely via the Roborock application. The trash container has a capacity of 380 grams (13.4 ounces) and is placed inside the robot under the lid.

There is also an additional water tank with a capacity of 2 dl (6.7 ounces), and it is very conveniently inserted into the back of the vacuum cleaner. At the bottom of the S7 MaxV robot, there is one brush on the right side, the main central rubber brush with a roller, sensors that prevent the vacuum cleaner from falling down the stairs, and sensors for the carpet, a multi-directional wheel and a pair of drive wheels.

Installation

As we have already stated the dimensions of the docking station, or officially the Empty Wash Fill Dock , its placement in the apartment is probably the most challenging part of the S7 MaxV Ultra robotic vacuum cleaner installation . Namely, you must provide it with a minimum of half a meter of space on both sides of the dock and at least a meter and a half in front of it, so that the robot can maneuver smoothly - turn around or go in and out.

Also, a free vertical space above the station (more precisely, their tanks) of at least one meter is required, so that they can easily remove and re-insert the tanks for clean and dirty water. In general, with this model you can forget about hiding the base station in a corner or under the bed. When you have found the ideal place to place the station, add a ramp that the robot will use to climb into it, and as the robot parks on it, your floors will be dry all the time.

The next step of connection is to download the Roborock app to your smartphone. After installation, you will need to create an account, then select the S7 MaxV model from the product list and follow the on-screen instructions to connect the vacuum cleaner to your Wi-Fi network. The process is very simple and you will not have any problems with the installation. After installation, we recommend that you study the additional options provided by this device because it has many useful options - washing methods, suction power, various settings, folder selection, etc.

Mapping

The robotic cleaner Roborock S7 MaxV automatically maps the floor plan of the rooms during the first cleaning. Interestingly, you will have the option of alternatives, i.e. if you don't have time or for any other reason you need it, you can choose the quick mapping option that will map the space without cleaning at the same time. A very interesting option if you use this device professionally and need to quickly set up the system in a larger space. Also, during mapping, the S7 MaxV detects floor and furniture types, divides and labels the rooms in your home, and suggests the most suitable methods of vacuuming and mopping for each of them.

In the Roborock app, you can edit maps to make them even more accurate. You can add prohibited zones to them, plan future cleaning jobs, and much more. The application allows you to view maps in two or three dimensions, and also offers "Matrix mapping" that uses a camera built into the robot to record more details about your space. This display is very interesting because it allows you to clean targeted areas, such as the area around the front door or the couch, and is started by simply touching the desired part on the map. We must note that “Matrix mapping” is only available to users who have an iPhone 12 (or later).

In practice, the robot vacuum cleaner S7 MaxV made a very precise map of the space during the first pass. All the furniture, wires, but even the shoes, the dog and the jars of plants were correctly identified. Additionally, several other items are simply marked as "obstacle" and a small traffic cone is added to the map at those locations. After the first pass, which will be a little longer and the vacuum cleaner will behave a little strangely, during the second pass (and all other subsequent ones) the S7 MaxV will stabilize its operation. We recommend that you be present during the first mapping so that you can remove obstacles and help the vacuum cleaner if it encounters an obstacle.


Use

The robotic vacuum cleaner S7 MaxV really does an excellent job of vacuuming dust, as well as various debris, as well as pet hair. Since this is a smart vacuum cleaner, it uses the lowest suction power when vacuuming hard floors - parquet or tiles. However, on the carpet, the suction power is automatically increased, which enables the vacuum cleaner to perform deep cleaning. Basically, everything is very similar to competing models - right down to the moment it fills the waste container. Namely, when the trash can of the S7 MaxV model is full, the vacuum cleaner returns to the dock and automatically empties it! A very practical option that works really well.

And in order to enable the tasks of mopping and washing the floors, you must fill the washing tank with water, wet the mop and place it under the tank. Also, you need to fill the water tank at the dock. Unlike most robots that simply drag a wet mop across the floor, the S7 MaxV scrubs the floor with three levels of intensity. This enables the vacuum cleaner to remove surface dirt, but also deep stains. Let's add that when you are vacuuming and mopping at the same time, the robot automatically raises the mop holder from the floor when it detects the carpet, in order to avoid soaking the carpet.

During mopping operations, the robot periodically returned to the docking station to clean its pad, drain dirty water, and refill it with clean water. It's another great feature provided by the S7 MaxV Ultra and one of the best options to free you from that slightly annoying action. As for refilling water and cleaning the tank of dirty water and dust, during daily use of the device, you will be freed from these tasks for at least a week. However, this depends very much on the way of use and the use of the robot itself.

The robotic vacuum cleaner S7 MaxV cleans very efficiently and is quite fast. We will add that it rarely gets stuck, and this happens mostly during the first space mapping. During operation, it maneuvers very easily and fluidly around the legs of tables and chairs, around shoes or other objects left on the floor, and in a wide arc around power cables and other obstacles. Also, since it is only 9.65 centimeters high, it can easily be tucked (and pulled out) under the sofa, coffee table or wardrobe. The operation of the vacuum cleaner is quiet and it can be said that it is among the quietest such devices. But again, everything depends on the way of use and the power with which it will vacuum. Let's add that the vacuum cleaner has a power of up to 5100 Pascal, which makes it one of the strongest in its class. And that power is best seen after vacuuming the carpet.


Security

As we mentioned earlier, you can also use the S7 MaxV robotic vacuum cleaner as a mobile security monitor. Through a smartphone and the Roborock application, you can observe what your robot sees through the built-in camera, as well as the microphone and speaker, with which you can start a conversation with anyone you find in the space. If you find burglars, this system will really be an interesting tool for expelling them.

The very existence of the camera could be a bit scary for you, especially if you think that your vacuum cleaner could be spying on you. However, this is unlikely, since to activate remote viewing, the feature must first be unlocked with a security pattern on the smartphone. Since this is a vacuum cleaner intended for cleaning larger spaces such as an office, the possibility of this kind of monitoring is very interesting and really raises safety to a higher level. Let's add that when the vacuum cleaner detects that it has entered a darker space, it turns on a reflector, which makes the video image clear even at night.

Nvidia NV47 never even existed!


 Conclusion

We noticed that the entire review is in a positive and laudatory tone, and the reason for that is simple - this device is really great. In short, with the smart vacuum cleaner and the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra docking station, cleaning has really been raised to a higher level. It was a big deal when the smart vacuum cleaner as a device appeared in the first place, but with the docking station, the robot vacuum cleaner really becomes an irreplaceable home assistant.

The vacuum cleaner itself works quickly and precisely. It vacuums floors and carpets flawlessly and really washes floors. Your only obligation is to bring him clean water and empty the tank with dirty water and garbage. Also, you won't have to check every now and then whether the tanks are full, because the application will notify you. Place the device in the desired location, program the cleaning time, fill the tank with clean water and that's it. The time that Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra will give you with its work can be used for yourself!
