For windows with and without framesFor windows with and without frames

For windows with and without frames

The Hobot 288 is equipped with numerous sensors. Thanks to its laser sensor it can measure height and distances. Therefore, the glass cleaning robot is able to detect window frames. This makes it perfectly suitable for windows with and without frames.

Mains operation only

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 cloths

The microfibre cloths of this window robot are washable and can be reused. Their high-quality and smooth surface prevents the glass from being scratched during cleaning.

Smart. Safe. Swift: the new Hobot 288

Control with your smartphoneControl with your smartphone

Control with your smartphone

The Hobot-App is available in the App Store (iOS) and Play Store (Android). It can be downloaded free of charge to control the Hobot. Within the with Bluetooth connected app you can choose the cleaning mode, start the robot and control it by using direction buttons – everything can be done comfortably via smartphone.

The window cleaning robot can be controlled using the remote control (included in delivery).

With safety rope and emergency battery

The window robot stands for maximum safety when cleaning windows - even at dizzying heights. An emergency battery (working time: 20 min) ensures that the window cleaning robot doesn’t fall off during a power cut. The safety rope also prevents it from falling.


With artificial intelligence (AI)

 The HB-288 is equipped with artificial intelligence (AI technology). This technology allows the robot to automatically identify the whole surface. It then calculates the smartest cleaning way and guarantees rapid window cleaning. It only takes 2.4 minutes to clean one square metre.


Limited use only on skylights and winter gardens

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 buttons on the remote control. We advise against overhead use (e.g. roof of winter garden). 


Hobot 288 vs. Hobot 268

The HB-288 is the successor of HB-268. Both window cleaning robots differ in colour and controlling methods. This window robot is not only controllable via remote control but also with your smartphone (app).


The Hobot 288 is perfectly suitable for

  • Diverse surfaces such as windows, glass doors, mirrors, tiles and the like
  • Framed and frameless windows
  • Multi-glazed windows
  • Surfaces of up to 30 m2
  • Difficult glass surfaces that you find difficult to clean by yourself


This window cleaning robot won’t precisely meet your requirements, if:

  • Your glass surfaces are smaller than 40 x 40 cm or bigger than 6 x 5 m
  • There is no need for app control

Customer Review(s)

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.
