Emma Standard, Emma Pet Specifications, Features
The robot vacuum cleaners of the Emma series from Trifo are equipped with a 2,600 mAh battery that offers a runtime of up to 110 minutes. It automatically returns to the charging station when a task is finished or when the battery is almost empty.
Emma Standard offers a suction power of up to 3,000 Pa, while Emma’s Pet version offers a stronger suction power of 4,000 Pa. The Emma Pet also offers an additional animal hair extractor with anti-knot function to ensure that long animal hair does not get caught.
Emma has a rubbish bin with a capacity of 600 ml, which means less frequent emptying. Emma’s longer main brush and a six-claw side brush create a wide 9.05-inch cleaning path. The Emma vacuum cleaner has intelligent sensors under the hood that allow it to clean effectively. It has a built-in navigation system that constantly receives information about the home environment and makes updates to improve cleaning routes.
Users can also control the robot with Alexa. It responds to voice commands like “Alexa, turn Emma on” to start cleaning. The mobile Trifo Home app can also be used for interaction and remote control of the robot vacuum cleaner. Users can start, stop and schedule cleaning jobs, get notified when they’re done, adjust suction power, and much more. You can also review previous cleaning trips.
Earlier this year, Trifo also launched the Trifo Max robotic vacuum cleaner in India, which comes with a surveillance camera for the home.
