Proscenic M7 Pro Robot Vacuum Cleaner with Dust Collector

We have been familiar with the manufacturer's Proscenic for some time. Now, The new model - Proscenic M7 Pro for only $459 you can get it at Proscenic official store – excluding the intelligent dust collector.
 
How about the Proscenic M7 Pro? Of course! an exciting robot! The technical data and functions read attractively, even if the wiping function and room layout are not included. Dust collectors are a luxury, but then again are vacuum robots if you like – after all, you could even swing the broom yourself.




Proscenic is a Taiwanese manufacturer in the smart home sector, which conveniently sells its models mainly through Amazon. The headquarters, however, is in Shenzhen, China. The company has been pursuing “intelligent cleaning” for 20 years.

As you know, the American manufacturer iRobot dominates the market with dust collectors, but it can be quite expensive. Other manufacturers like Lenovo try to keep up, but also at much more expensive prices than Proscenic now. Is the M7 Pro the Proscenic model that will make the breakthrough to the strong competition for Roborock, Xiaomi, or Ecovacs, even though you have to buy the dust collector separately? Or is the M7 Pro sold below value to gain fans? The iRobot models with a dust collector start at $800.
 
Proscenic M7 Pro is Practically worth $459
The M7 Pro also has one advantage over the iRobot models at first glance, apart from the lower price: laser space measurement via laser distance sensor (LDS). While iRobot relies on the less precise camera navigation, the M7 Pro scans the premises and creates a visual map of the four walls. This map can be accessed, edited, and saved in the ProscenicHome app (Android, iOS). One should be able to save several floors with the M7 Pro.


Areas can be controlled individually and the respective working hours can be preset.
 
As it should be for a model with LDS and app control, virtual no-go zones can also be drawn in the map, so that areas can be closed off for the robot that should not be vacuumed. Carpet recognition (increases the suction power), voice control via Alexa and Google Assistant (“Start the vacuuming process), autonomous retrieval of the charging station and continued cleaning (when the battery power decreases, the robot recharges and continues cleaning instead of stopping) are also included in the software package.
 

If the M7 Pro detects a carpet underneath it, it increases the suction power.
 
What is missing, however, is an automatic room divider and a wiping function. The latter is easy to get over, as hybrid models consisting of a vacuum and wiping robot are usually much more suitable for vacuuming than for wiping. The lack of a room divider is much more painful, but it may be possible to update it via a firmware update.
 

Visually quite appealing.
Dust collectors are a luxury you don’t need, that’s for sure. To explain: dust collectors are charging stations and ” unloader” of the dust chamber in one – automated. When the robot drives to the station after cleaning, the battery is charged and the dust is sucked out of the dust chamber. The sucked-up contents of the 0.6 l dust chamber then end up in a bag or pouch, which is simply removed when the potential filling quantity is reached and thrown into the waste.
 
Evaluation of the Proscenic M7 Pro
 
Exciting robot! The technical data and functions read attractively, even if the wiping function and room layout are not included. Dust collectors are a luxury, but then again are vacuum robots if you like – after all, you could even swing the broom yourself. So it’s nice that Proscenic wants to score in this area.
 
Of course, $459 only for the vacuum robot is not a small amount of money, but measured by the range of functions, established manufacturers in this country pay considerably more. It would be nice if you didn’t have to add another $100 for the dust collector.
 
We secure a test model and provide you with our impressions as soon as possible. What do you think of a dust collector? Useful or not necessary?
