LG’s Robot Vacuum Has A Built-In Google Home Assistant
The newest LG Hom-Bot Turbo+ models come with cameras to function as a security system while also cleaning an owner's home
LG has unveiled three new Hom-Bot Turbo+ vacuum models with advanced cleaning functions and quiet motors, and each of the models comes with capabilities to act as a security camera. They also connect to the owner’s smartphone to receive commands.
The flagship model of the three also accepts voice commands via the Google Assistant on Google Home. The vacuum bots have six cameras to make navigating the home easier and avoid getting stuck on objects or knocking them over. The flagship model uses its two front cameras to record and livestream video if it detects movement after the owner leaves the house, capturing up to five quick photos and recording up to 100 minutes of footage. When they register low batteries, the vacuums return to their charging stations on their own.
The models come in three different colors that correspond to their functions and prices. The ruby red costs $699, the ocean black costs $799 and the flagship model in metallic gold costs $999. They were made available in a limited amount of stores in the U.S. but will receive a wider release this fall.
