“Getting the machine started was easy and straightforward. I started by spraying some window cleaning on the cleaning pad before attaching the pad firmly to the Winbot’s base. which resembles a velcro-like material. It took me less than 5 minutes to set everything up and I was ready to start exploring this robot! I placed the Winbot on the corner of the window, turned it on. Amazingly, it stayed there. I was initially concerned that the suction was not strong enough, but was amazed at how sturdy the machine seemed. When I pushed the start button, the Winbot began to move up and down, left and right. After the Winbot did a couple rounds of automated cleaning, I played along with the different buttons on the remote control by directing the Winbot around with the arrows.
Once the cleaning cycle was done, the WinBot automatically returned to the same position as I started, which is a huge advantage for those hard to reach window panels. I turned it off, pulled it off the glass, and brought it back inside. Then I assessed the results. The window seemed drastically less dirty.”
What Stephanie liked:
“For homeowners or business owners with hard to reach and tall windows, Winbot is the answer to an obvious problem. What I liked about the Winbot was that you can be completely hands on with its 1-touch cleaning function or off with its remote control option. Also, its remote control option makes it an excellent backup for corners that have been missed with its automated cleaning.”
