In Singapore’s bustling urban landscape, where high-rise condos and compact HDB apartments are the norm, the DreameBot L10s Pro Ultra Heat stands out as a beacon of home cleaning efficiency. This robot vacuum is a game-changer for the busy Singaporean, offering a silent yet efficient cleaning companion that operates in the background, allowing residents to come home to pristine floors after a long day’s work.
The DreameBot L10s Pro Ultra Heat offers an intelligent solution that respects space constraints, rising to the occasion with its compact design, proving that performance need not be sacrificed for size. Tailored for the hectic lifestyle Singapore’s professionals navigate daily, this robotic cleaner offers peace of mind with its autonomous capabilities.
Design for autonomous cleaning
The DreameBot L10s Pro Ultra Heat is a seamless blend of elegant design and technological sophistication, crafted to integrate effortlessly into the urban fabric of Singapore’s homes. The robot and docking station come in white, with a tint of rose gold. The robot’s sleek, disc-shaped architecture, measuring 350mm by 97mm, is aesthetically pleasing and functional, allowing it to easily navigate tight spaces and corners. Its low-profile stature, critical in a design that allows it to glide beneath furniture and through tight spaces, conceals a robust build capable of handling the complexity of daily cleaning tasks across various floor types.
Under this compact frame lies the innovative rotating side brush and brush roll, which work in concert to dislodge and sweep up dirt from edges and open spaces. The side brush extends the reach of the DreameBot, ensuring that baseboards and corners aren’t neglected. In contrast, the floating rubber brush roll adjusts to different floor types, maintaining close contact to capture fine particles and larger debris. Complementing these are the two circular rotating mops, which pivot and press against the floor with precision, simulating the effect of a deep manual clean. This dual-action mopping system tackles surface stains and reaches deeper, ingrained dirt, leaving floors clean.
Meanwhile, the docking station is a hub of innovation that takes care of the DreameBot L10s Pro Ultra Heat between cleaning cycles. With a compact footprint of 456.7mm by 340mm, it is a masterclass in space efficiency. The DreameBot’s docking station, with its more slender profile, slips comfortably into the nooks of apartments, from sleek condominiums to cosy HDB flats, underlining its suitability for the space-conscious Singaporean abode.
The 4.5L clean water tank and 4L dirty water tank at the docking station mean it can handle several cleaning sessions before needing a refill. When the robot docks, it undergoes an automatic washing cycle at a precise 58°C, ensuring the mop pads are free from dirt and bacteria. Following this, a 45°C hot air drying function swiftly prepares the mop pads for their subsequent use, preventing the growth of mildew and the development of odours.
But the DreameBot truly distinguishes itself in the automation of its maintenance cycle. The docking station’s auto-dust collection system of 3.2L can go for up to 75 days without needing attention, a stark comparison to the Roborock Q Revo‘s smaller 2.7L dust bag capacity, which would require more frequent emptying.
Moreover, the DreameBot’s optional water hookup kit elevates convenience, automating water refills and drainage, thereby integrating seamlessly into the lives of Singaporeans who value efficiency and simplicity in their home management.
Outstanding performance with 7,000Pa suction power and MopExtend Technology
The DreameBot L10s Pro Ultra Heat stands out for its performance, which is both vigorous and intelligent. During our extensive testing, it demonstrated a remarkable ability to tackle various types of debris easily, thanks to its powerful 7,000Pa suction power. From fine dust particles to larger crumbs and pet hair, the DreameBot left floors impeccably clean. A test on tiled flooring saw the device pick up spilt rice and red beans, simulating the grit that’s often tracked indoors, and it did so without scattering the debris, a common pitfall of less powerful robot vacuums.
When it came to mopping, the DreameBot’s MopExtend Technology shone brightly. It wasn’t just the mop’s reach that impressed us; it was its ability to apply consistent pressure, mimicking a human touch. The automatic extension and retraction of the mop allow it to adapt to various cleaning situations. This feature ensures it can navigate around table and chair legs, penetrate door crevices, and ascend steps. Moreover, it thoroughly cleans the wall’s right angles, irregular corners, and baseboards.
In a controlled test involving dried coffee stains and muddy footprints on hardwood floors, the device precisely worked its dual rotary mops, leaving a streak-free finish. The hot water washing feature ensured the mop pads were always clean, which was evident when the robot tackled a notoriously sticky juice spill. The before-and-after contrast was stark, as the DreameBot left a once-tacky surface spotless and dry.
The device’s smart navigation and obstacle avoidance also underwent rigorous testing, particularly around everyday household clutter like shoes, toys, and cables. The DreameBot was acutely aware of its surroundings, skilfully avoiding potential traps that often ensnare other robot vacuums.
Moreover, its ability to ascend and descend different surface heights was tested, transitioning from rugs to bare floors without hesitation. This adaptability was further showcased in its smart carpet cleaning, where it automatically increased suction, lifted the mops and navigated varying pile heights with remarkable finesse, ensuring a thorough clean without becoming entangled. With the Dreame app, you may also choose to vacuum twice at reduced speed, ensuring a more thorough clean-up, or even avoid carpets during cleaning altogether.
Easy control with the Dreame App
Navigating the DreameBot L10s Pro Ultra Heat is effortless with the Dreame App, which offers an intuitive and responsive interface that makes the most of the robot’s capabilities. You can access a real-time live map once you’ve downloaded the app via the QR code near the dustbin. This feature is awe-inspiring, as it tracks the robot’s location and cleaning progress through your home. The map updates dynamically, displaying the areas the DreameBot has covered, ensuring no space is left untouched.
While the DreameBot L10s Pro Ultra Heat boasts a 3D mapping feature, it serves as a novel visualisation tool rather than a functional part of the cleaning process.
However, the app’s comprehensive vacuum and mop settings offer a deep level of customisation. It can detect when the mopping pad is attached or detached, automatically turn mopping settings on or off, and even allow the mopping pads to be pre-soaked before starting, ensuring a thorough clean.
The app’s containment features add another layer of control, including virtual walls, no-go zones, and no-mop zones. The ability to draw diagonal lines for virtual walls offers greater flexibility in defining off-limit areas. The map-saving function is also a standout, storing up to four map levels, each customisable with partitions, containment options, and schedules.
For those who prefer targeted cleaning, the app provides selective room cleaning and zoned cleaning features, enabling users to direct the DreameBot to clean specific areas or rooms easily. These settings and customisation for pad-washing and self-emptying features make the app a powerful companion to this advanced cleaning system.
