A smart window cleaning robot for framed & frameless windows

The Hobot 268 is a particularly intelligent and efficient window cleaning robot. A powerful vacuum pump ensures a firm hold, so that the glass cleaning robot can even be used on rough glass surfaces, mosaic glass or tiled walls. Using artificial intelligence (AI technology), the robot recognises the window surface and calculates the most efficient cleaning path. Two built-in sensors detect the end of the glass surface so that the Hobot can also be used on frameless windows. Particularly practical: A built-in emergency battery prevents a crash should the window robot ever be disconnected from the mains power supply (e.g. in the event of a power failure).

Product description

A window cleaning robot does all the tedious work for you


Hobot 268: Suitable for many surfaces

The glass cleaning robot by Hobot cleans all glass surfaces such as windows, glass doors, mirrors, shower cubicles or conservatories. But you can also use it to clean tiled walls.


The Hobot 268 also cleans different surfaces within the same area without interruption, as the negative pressure and the pneumatic microfibre pad holder automatically adapt to the surface.


Max. size of the application area: 6 x 5 m

 

Suitable for skylights and conservatories?

Unfortunately, the glass cleaning robot cannot be used automatically on inclined glass (such as roof windows). It can only be controlled on these surfaces with the direction keys on the remote control. We advise against overhead use (e.g. roof of winter garden). 

Firm hold and safetyFirm hold and safety

Firm hold and safety

The vacuum motor enables the glass cleaning robot to adhere to smooth glass surfaces. A lithium-polymer emergency battery prevents the robot from crashing should the mains power supply be interrupted (e.g. in the event of a power failure). For additional safety, the device can be fixed with a safety rope (pulling force: 150 kg).

Not suitable for wireless use!Not suitable for wireless use!

Not suitable for wireless use!

Please note that the glass cleaning robot cannot be used wirelessly. It must always be supplied with power, even during use, because it functions exclusively in mains operation.

Washable microfibre pads Washable microfibre pads

Washable microfibre pads

The microfibre pads are washable and are simply mounted on the underside of the window cleaning robot. Velcro closure ensures a perfect fit and easy handling when changing the pads. During cleaning, a powerful vacuum sucks in dust that sticks to the microfibre cloth. Long, soft fibres prevent scratching of the glass surface.

Powerful vacuum ensures secure hold and cleanliness

The window cleaning robot moves over two tracks at speeds of up to 12 cm/sec. A window with one square metre can be cleaned in 2.4 minutes. For cleaning, an easily replaceable cleaning pad is attached to the underside of the Hobot 268. A powerful centrifugal pump generates a strong negative pressure, which enables the window cleaning robot to hold firmly on vertical surfaces and also sucks in dust.

 

Cleaning frameless windows

The window cleaning robot is equipped with artificial intelligence (called AI technology). This technology helps the robot to recognise the entire window area and calculate an intelligent cleaning route. Due to the following two sensors, the Hobot glass cleaning robot can be used on both framed and frameless windows: A pressure sensor monitors the suction pressure. A laser sensor measures the distance and height as the Hobot moves freely over the surface. This also allows it to detect the edges of frameless glass surfaces.

 

 

Cleaning: Automatic or by remote control

The glass cleaning robot has three automatic cleaning programs. Each of these programs can also be selected manually using the remote control. After completion of the cleaning program, the robot stops automatically. You can also control the Hobot manually with the remote control.

 

Comparison Hobot 268 vs. Hobot 188 and 198

In contrast to Hobot 188 and 198, the Hobot 268 can also be used on frameless glass surfaces without any problems. While Hobot 188 and 198 move on special cleaning wheels, the 268 uses caterpillars. Unlike the Hobot 198, the 268 model does not have app control.

Conclusion


Conclusion Conclusion

The Hobot 268 is the right window robot for you when:

  • You are looking for a robot that can clean different surfaces (e.g. windows, mirrors, tiles)
  • You have a lot of frameless windows to clean.
  • The cleaning area does not exceed 30 m2
  • There are hard-to-reach windows in your household that you don't want to or can't clean yourself.

 

This window robot is less suitable for you, though:

  • You are looking for a window cleaning robot with app control
  • The glass surface to be cleaned is larger than 30 m2

Customer Review(s)

5-year guarantee5-year guarantee

With their technical sophistication and excellent range of features, robots from myRobotcenter never fail to impress. Our robots are guaranteed to provide you with more free time and a better quality of life. Guarantee is also the key word when it comes the longevity of our products. Thanks to their sophisticated, tried and tested technology, our products have proven to be extremely reliable and free of faults. If a design fault should arise, then you can rely on a guarantee that – with many products – extends far beyond the statutory minimum.

 

Extension of the guarantee to 5 years

Our products come with a manufacturer's guarantee (generally 2 years). At myRobotcenter you get an even longer guarantee on many products: we extend the guarantee period to 5 years.

 

Complete security over many years

Our 5-year guarantee on labelled products is both a mark of quality and a very special service for you as our customer. In addition to the respective guarantee, we provide  you with all the details about the conditions of our guarantees and which services you can expect from us.

 

What does the guarantee cover?

The 5-year guarantee covers devices bought from us when accompanied by a receipt or another document that proves the validity of the 5-year guarantee. The 5-year guarantee ends five years after the device was purchased. The guarantee is valid for guarantee claims that occur in United Kingdom.

 

A guarantee claim is valid when the device purchased by you is damaged or destroyed, as a result of the following causes:

  • construction fault, calculation error, casting defect, material defect and production fault

  • direct effects of electrical energy as a result of a ground fault, short circuit, excessive increase in the current strength, electrical arc-over, formation of electrical arcs, insulation faults, excess voltage and the like.


Excluded from the guarantee is damage caused by external influences, such as a bounce flash in the circuit or fire damage. Such externally induced damages can be covered under certain circumstances by your household insurance and may include:

  • measuring, controlling and safety device failures

  • excessive pressure other than explosions

  • implosion and other effects of insufficient pressure

  • lack of water in steam boiler and other apparatus

  • bursts due to centrifugal force

 

Within the framework of the extended guarantee, operating errors are covered insofar as they impair the functionality of the product and do not represent a contravention of the operating instructions. For such cases we shall charge an excess of 84 GBP including VAT.

 

What is NOT covered by the guarantee?

  • Wear and tear, and damage to wearing parts and batteries (the battery is only covered by the manufacturer's guarantee)

  • Damage that does not impair the technical function of the device, e.g. scratches and scuffs.

  • Damage or destruction due to intentional or grossly negligent acts or omissions on the part of the purchaser or other users of the device.

  • Damage or destruction caused by improper installation/assembly, by improper repairs/adjustments, by improper, non-intended or unusual use or cleaning of the device – especially when the manufacturer’s instructions are not followed – and by operating errors.

     

What service do we provide in valid guarantee cases?

  1. When repair is technically and objectively possible and the costs of repair do not exceed the current value of the device (see clause 3), the device shall be repaired professionally and the costs incurred in the repair reimbursed by the guarantee.

  2. Should repair be technically or objectively impossible or uneconomical (total write-off), you shall receive a replacement device of the same kind and quality up to the amount of the current value (see clause 3). The damaged or destroyed device is returned to us and becomes our property.

  3. The current value of your device is 50% of the purchase price in the 3rd year after conclusion of purchase contract, 40% in the 4th year and 30% in the 5th year of the purchase price as stated in the receipt.

 

Is your device broken?

Just ask us for help. We will support you with the repair request.

  1. In the matters of a needed repair, a skilled and trained team in service and repair department from us or from the manufacturer itself, will gladly be there for you with advice and act to the side.

  2. Please take care of packing the robot carefully to avoid damage.

  3. Enclose a detailed description of the fault as well as the invoice together with the 5-year guarantee certificate.

  4. The robot must be fully postage paid at and sent to the mentioned address.

  5. Transport costs are paid by you and will not be refunded. We recommend that you keep the postage receipt.
