CLEAN YOUR FLOOR WITH A SIMPLE VOICE COMMAND
Eufy introduces its new robotic vacuum cleaner, the RoboVac 30C, which is the thinnest and most powerful RoboVac in the market, and works with Amazon Alexa and other voice services.

At only 2.85 in (7.25 cm) tall, the RoboVac 30c is thin enough to clean under most furniture without getting stuck. It also includes a magnetic strip which can be placed on a wall, under a carpet, or on furniture in order to stop the RoboVac from leaving a room or going over a certain place. And with a whopping 1500 Pa of suction power, the RoboVac 30C will have a hard time missing any dust or pet hair.

The Eufy RoboVac 30C will be available in September on Amazon.com for $299.99. Additional information about the RoboVac series or other Eufy smart home products can be found at www.eufylife.com.
