Roborock Australia has revolutionised home cleaning with our advanced line of robotic vacuums, consistently outperforming traditional stand-up vacuums. The Roborock S8 Pro Ultra, sets a new standard in the industry, reinforcing our position as global leaders in robotic vacuum technology.

Since our inception in 2016 with the launch of the Roborock Mi Home Robotic Vacuum Cleaner, Roborock Australia has been committed to continual innovation. We have expanded our range to include over a dozen state-of-the-art vacuum cleaners, each tailored with unique capabilities. 

The Roborock S8 Pro Ultra is a game-changer, with an advanced navigation system, ensuring that it covers every corner of your home with precision and efficiency. Its high-capacity battery allows for extended cleaning sessions, perfect for larger homes or thorough clean-ups. 

And there’s more to love as well. Keep reading to discover why the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra is the only vacuum you need for your home.

Design & Build Quality 

We’ve gone the extra mile for their customers with the design and build quality of the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra. The S8 Pro Ultra is 350 millimetres wide with a cleaning depth of 353 millimetres, making it perfect to go underneath couches, beds and other hard-to-reach areas. It also works seamlessly with the Roborock docking station with Auto-Emptying functionality, allowing it to empty its 0.35L dust collection hub automatically. 

Made of a hard plastic exterior, it’s perfect for accidental bumps with furnishing corners, table legs, or even your feet without causing injury. Its navigation system uses state-of-the-art laser distance sensors, smart mapping, automatic routing and obstacle detection. It is also compatible with the Roborock app, allowing users to control many cleaner features, schedule cleanings, and remotely change the onboard navigation systems to create ‘no-go zones’, or areas that the Roborock vacuum will avoid during it’s cleaning routine.

It also features a 5200mAh rechargeable battery, combining seamlessly with the recharging Roborock docking station. Built into its design is the ability to work quietly at a noise level of only 40.7 decibels, climbing to a somewhat unfortunate 82.2 decibels when self-emptying, with a ‘quiet’ setting of 64.5 decibels. This quiet feature makes it ideal for nighttime cleaning and/or cleaning while the baby sleeps. 

Advanced Cleaning Technology 

The Roborock S8 Pro Ultra comes packed with features that enhance its cleaning capabilities and make it easy to use and convenient for the layout of any home. This two-in-one mop and vacuum cleaning system can cover almost any surface in your home and features two types of brushes and a mopping pad. 

The DuoRiser brushes provide double the cleaning power, with each brush running conversely to each other, scooping up crumbs and small debris, unlike a more traditional vacuum that leaves the smallest bits of debris behind. In addition, the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra vacuum features the incredible CarpetBoost+, meaning that the brushes will reach deeper into the carpet and can pick up 30% more dirt and hair trapped in carpet fibres. 

Thanks to the CarpetBoost+ and its minimal 64.7dB noise level, the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra vacuum is perfect for houses with pets. 

Even if you don’t own carpet, cleaning wooden or laminate flooring is a breeze with the Roborock mop capability of the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra. It can apply 6 newtons of pressure when mopping and provides scrubbing capabilities of 3000 rotations per minute of the Roborock mop, which automatically vibrates when in mopping mode, releasing trapped dirt in between floor seams. 

Smart Navigation and Mapping 

One of the best features of the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra is its smart navigation features. It uses LiDAR technology to create detailed 3D models of your home stored in its onboard computer, allowing it to create a route for itself and engage its obstacle-detection features. It also detects carpet and other surface changes thanks to an ultrasonic sensor array, allowing it to measure the distances between objects and the array. 

The Roborock S8 Pro Ultra also has a catalogue of 42 objects in its onboard navigation computer that it will automatically avoid. This obstacle catalogue is created by 3D representations within the computer system that tell the Roborock vacuum to avoid that obstacle, these include pet waste, scales, wires, power bars, trainers and slippers, dustpans and fabric. 

Using PreciSense LiDAR technology, the Roborock vacuum and mop combo will automatically detect surface changes beneath it and begin mopping, or you can set this feature in the Roborock app. 

Whatever your home’s layout, the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra’s onboard technology will help it navigate safely without damaging your possessions or injuring any pets on the floor. 

Battery-Life & Charging 

Another impressive feature of the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra is its battery life. This fantastic little machine has a run time of 180 minutes in quiet mode but also has onboard tech to tell it when it’s running low. It will then automatically return to the Roborock ultra dock, recharge its batteries (which takes roughly 6 hours from near-empty), and then return to where it left off. 

Alternatively, you can use your Roborock app to tell your Roborock vac when to charge itself and resume its run at a specific time. The added flexibility of the Roborock app is perfect for the working family who will be out of the house during the day or for those with kids who can run the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra at night (in quiet mode) while everyone is asleep. 

User-Friendly App Control 

Speaking of the Roborock app, it is one of the best things about the newer Roborock vacuum and mop systems! The app can be installed on both Android and Apple devices and integrates an easy-to-use interface, allowing owners to create rooms for the Roborock vac to tackle, complete with naming functions to give the robot something to refer to. 

Additionally, your Roborock app allows you to engage child locks and turn the robot’s lights on and off to minimise disturbances if it is cleaning at night. The application will also allow you to control the robot’s ability to automatically extend and retract the height of it’s brushes to adapt to different flooring surfaces. 

You can also set your robot’s cleaning schedules via the application to allow you to either schedule a whole-house clean or tell the Roborock vacuum to clean specific rooms on certain days. This is perfect for those with family members who come and go, allowing their rooms to be closed off when they’re not there and then cleaned again when they are.

Multi-Level Cleaning 

Known as “multi-level cleaning,” this feature enables your Roborock S8 Pro Ultra to be pre-programmed to clean specific types of floors in different rooms. This is a particularly useful feature if your home is a mix of carpet and wood or laminate. The multi-level cleaning feature also allows your Roborock to switch between mopping and vacuuming when it detects flooring and carpets in the same space. 

Most of this information can be relayed to the Roborock vac using the Roborock app. Multi-level cleaning will also ensure that your Roborock retracts its brushes when running on non-carpeted flooring to avoid scratching them. 

Noise Level 

One of the great things about the Roborock is that it has several different modes for cleaning specific types of flooring at different intensities. While it cannot be completely silent during cleaning, having multiple settings allows it to be programmed to your needs. There are several noise levels that it exhibits during different cleaning modes, these are as follows: 

  •       Baseline Power Mode: 40.7dB
  •       Quiet Mode: 64.5dB
  •       Balanced Mode: 66.9dB
  •       Turbo Mode: 70.7dB
  •       “Max” Mode: 74.5dB
  •       Max+ Mode: 76.7dB
  •       Cleaning Mode: 82.2dB 

These noise levels can be adjusted and adapted for specific times of day via the Roborock app, allowing maximum versatility and ease of use. The decibel levels will depend on how hard your Roborock vac works to clean the space; it may be louder on the thicker carpets of your home.

Maintenance and Care 

One of the great things about the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra is that it is a decidedly ‘low maintenance’ vacuum due to its compatibility with the Roborock docking station that features automatic cleaning of its brushes and automatic emptying of its dust container and grey-water reservoir from the Roborock mop. At 300ml, the Roborock’s mop reservoir will clean up to 200 square metres in a single session before needing to be refilled with fresh water. 

Another fantastic element of the Roborock app is that it keeps track of the wear and tear on your dual brushes and will alert you when the brushes should be changed based on usage hours. This great feature means you don’t have to inspect your Roborock vacuum’s brushes constantly.

Why You Need a Roborock S8 Pro Ultra 

The Roborock S8 Ultra Pro is designed to be one of the most efficient and effective robotic vacuum cleaners of the modern robot vacuum era. Combining smartphone apps, internal smart technology and WiFi connectivity to your home’s smart systems like Alexa and Google Home, you’ll always be able to keep track of how your Roborock S8 Ultra Pro is cleaning, even when you’re not home. 

The flexibility offered by a scheduling system and room splicing functions of the app allows you to pick and choose when your Roborock S8 Ultra Pro is cleaning, whenever is convenient for you. Its advanced sensor technology means you don’t have to worry about it destroying your carpets with water, as its mop is retractable. You also don’t have to worry about it hitting your sleeping cat or dog or damaging your furniture.
