Hobot 198 can be used on different surfaces
This window cleaning robot cleans all glass surfaces, such as windows, glass doors, mirrors and shower cubicles. However, it can also be used to clean walls, tiles, floors or tables.
Even different surfaces within the same area can be cleaned without interruption, because it can automatically adjust its pressure to the surface being cleaned. The maximum cleaning area should not be greater than 6 metres high and 5 metres wide.
Three cleaning programs
The robot has three automatic cleaning programs for clean windows without any streaks. After finishing the cleaning program the robot stops automatically.
Remote control & remote control via app
You can navigate the Hobot via remote control. Remote control via app for smartphone or tablet is also possible. The app is available for iOS and Android devices.
Firm grip and cleanliness thanks to a strong vacuum
Two clever cleaning wheels replace an inflexible chassis and allow the Hobot 198 window cleaning machine to move freely over glass surfaces. Two eco-friendly microfibre pads do the cleaning. A strong centrifugal pump produces strong negative pressure that ensures a firm grip on vertical surfaces and vacuums up the dust.
Microfibre pads: reusable& washable
The microfibre pads can be washed up to 40 °C and are easily fixed onto the cleaning wheels. An elastic band ensures a firm fit and easy handling when changing the pads.
During the cleaning process a strong negative pressure vacuums up the dust, which sticks to the microfibre cloth. Even when the pad becomes dirty, long and soft fibres protect the glass from scratches.
Note: Please only use Hobot microfibre pads to ensure brilliant glass cleaning.
Maximum safety features
The strong vacuum motor ensures a firm grip on smooth glass surfaces. In case there's a power failure, an integrated Lithium polymer battery will prevent the window cleaning robot from falling down. Furthermore, the device can be fitted with a safety rope (tensile force: 159 kg).
Clean Windows thanks to artificial intelligence
The window cleaning machine is equipped with artificial intelligence (AI technology). Thanks to several sensors it is able to detect the window frame and then calculate an intelligent cleaning route. This ensures that the whole glass surface is thoroughly cleaned.

Robot is great I hate cleaning glass surfaces Now I am happy - all windows, mirrors and glass doors in my home are clean and I am not tired. I don't use any chemicals, just water and result is so good I clean just corners and 1 circle where robot finishes it's job. 1 circle, because I make wet just bottom circle. Top circle I leave dry. Definitely recommend Hobot 198
Seems to fit the description though I haven't used it enough to comment in detail.

The quality of washing is 90.
Looks very good, but need more time to give correct feedback.
This one I have tried, and it is super, and super easy to use.....and funnyHow you Can get other jobs done in same time....I cleaned my can.
Tried to use the Hobot 198 on the front window, it was not so happy about the position it had.
But perfect at up/down windows.
Thank you for that machine.
Very good robot for cleaning windows.
