Virtual wall is one of components of iLIFE X5, which can manage the area robot cleans. When the robot gets close to the infrared ray it emits, the robot would turn around. Virtual wall brings more convenience in people’s daily life:
Adjustable Suction Level
ILIFE X5 has a suction level which ranges from 550Pa to 850Pa, and the original suction level is preseted as 550Pa. 550Pa is used for daily clean, while “MAX” 850Pa for deeper clean. Now some robot vacuum can support 1000Pa suction level, such as ILIFE T4 and X4 series. The proscenic jazzs series suction power up to 1200Pa! So X5 suction level is not powerful, but maybe reasonable. As usual, 800Pa suction level is enough for most application scenario. Low suction level means low noise level.
3 Cleaning Modes
Auto cleaning mode cleans home automatically and does a clean to places it can reach.Spot cleaning mode is used to clean an area of highly concentrated dust.Edge cleaning mode cleans edges and corners.
With remote control, you can manage the direction by the direction key. Some powerful robot vacuum can support column cleaning mode with GPS or Gyro navigation, so X5 is not much strong at this function. Back to the low price, maybe it is suitable.
With water tank and mop, iLIFE X5 can do cleaning and mopping both. 100ML water can mop a small single room, while 300ML a 1600sqft room. In mopping mode, the working noise lowers to 40dB, quite silent without any disturbing.
