A modern window cleaning robot with app control & artificial intelligence

The new glass cleaning robot by Hobot makes the hearts of all window-cleaning-grumpies beat faster: It can clean different surfaces such as: smooth and rough glass surfaces, engraved glass, tiled walls and the like. By using artificial intelligence (AI), the window robot evaluates its routes to choose the most efficient one. The HB-288 is controlled with a remote control or via smartphone. Window cleaning has never been easier - and safer. Thanks to the integrated emergency battery and the safety rope, the Hobot 288 won’t fall off during a power cut.

Product description

Modern, thorough and fast: the window cleaning robot Hobot 288

For small and large surfaces

This glass cleaning robot by Hobot can clean small as well as large surfaces. Please keep in mind the following data:

 
Minimum cleaning area: 40 x 40 cm

The glass thickness is not relevant as the window robot is suitable for any glass thickness.

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 onlyMains operation only

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 clothsWashable microfibre cloths

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 following right of cancellation is only valid for consumers.


End of right to cancel


9.2: Please avoid damaging and soiling the goods. Please return the goods to us in their original packaging if possible, with all accessories and packaging components. If necessary, please use an additional layer of protective outer packaging. If you no longer have the original packaging material, please ensure that you pack the goods in a way that offers sufficient protection from transport damage so that you avoid incurring claims for damages resulting from inadequate packaging.

9.3: Please note that the arrangements noted in section 9.2 are not a prerequisite for effective exercising of the right to cancellation.

 

Section 10: Transport damage

10.1: If goods are delivered with obvious transport damage, please register a complaint about such defects with the delivery agent immediately, and get into contact with us as soon as possible. Get in touch with us by email or using the contact form.

10.2: Neglecting to register a complaint with the delivery agent or failing to get in contact with us has no effect on your statutory guarantee rights. Doing so would however help us with asserting our own claims against the delivery company and/or transportation insurance provider.

 

Section 11: Risk-bearing during delivery

When the goods are being delivered, the risk for loss of or damage to the goods only transfers to the consumer when the goods are delivered to the consumer or to a third party named by them, not including the delivery agent. However, if the consumer concludes a contract of carriage themselves without selecting one of the delivery options suggested by us, the risk is transferred to the consumer when the goods are handed over to the delivery agent.

 

Section 12: Guarantee

12.1: The guarantee is limited to the statutory period of 24 months from the date the consumer receives the goods, or the date the service was ordered. Where a justifiable complaint has been lodged about a defect, a free replacement will be provided, or the defect will be rectified, for which an appropriate period of time must be allowed. If an exchange or rectification is ruled out (not possible, too expensive, unreasonable, deadline delay), the customer has the right to a reduction in price or, if the defect is not insubstantial, to cancel the contract (revocation). If possible, defects are to be reported upon delivery or upon detection. If the purchase is a business transaction for the customer (B2B), they must examine the goods within 2 weeks of receipt at the latest and report any defects to us without delay.

Our company is only liable for damages in cases of intent and gross negligence. This liability does not apply to cases of personal injury and/or consumer business. Insofar as it is not a matter of consumer business, the injured party must prove the existence of cases of slight and gross negligence. The possibility of compensation to the customer for consequential damages (arising from defects), other damage to property, pecuniary losses and damages to third parties, insofar as it is not a matter of consumer business, is excluded. Our company, as the operator of the online shop named in the legal notice, renders the services offered with the utmost care, however, we are not liable for services provided or purchased by third parties.

Guarantee claims should be made to the guarantor (the manufacturer/sometimes also the retailer if these are the same) and are effected according to their provisions. Claims on the guarantee do not affect the statutory guarantee.

12.2: Rechargeable batteries are consumer goods that come with a limited guarantee. Guarantee claims cannot be made for the loss of performance of rechargeable batteries due to normal wear and tear or due to improper use, handling or storage. Guarantee claims cannot be made against the loss of performance of rechargeable batteries after 12 months.

 

Section 13: Liability

We are not liable for slightly negligent breaches of duty insofar as these are not related to material contractual obligations, damages arising from injury to life, body and health, or to guarantees, or if they affect claims arising from the product liability law. The same is valid for breaches of duty on the part of our vicarious agents.

 

Section 14: Ineffective clauses

Should a provision in these General Terms and Conditions be invalid, the rest of the contract remains valid. The appropriate statutory regulations shall be in force to replace the ineffective provision.

 

Section 15: Place of jurisdiction and applicable law

15.1: The legal places of jurisdiction are valid. Therefore, the competent court is that of the administrative district of the consumer’s home, usual place of residence or place of employment.

15.2: These Terms and Conditions and the contracts entered into under these Terms and Conditions are subject to Austrian material law. The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is excluded.

 

Section 16: Place of fulfilment

The place of fulfilment for all transactions is the company headquarters.
