Note 3:
The following brushes are used by the two robots:
  • Both Proscenic 811GB and Proscenic 790T come with one rolling bristle brush which is great for deep cleaning of carpets, and that can also be used on hard floors.
  • Both Proscenic 811GB and Proscenic 790T are also equipped with double side brushes to clean effectively corners and wall edges.
  • In addition, Proscenic 790T also comes with a direct suction port that can be used instead of the bristle brush to more effectively clean hard floors for vacuuming pet hair and debris without causing any tangles. 

Note 4:
Proscenic vacuuming and mopping robots can be requested to run in various navigation modes to meet your home's cleaning needs:
  • Proscenic 811GB can be requested in for different navigation modes:
    - Auto Cleaning ModeUsed for daily cleaning of the entire house. The robot uses infrared sensors to cover effectively and thoroughly the space to be cleaned.
    - Spot Cleaning Mode: Used to thoroughly cleans small areas with concentrated dirt. In this mode, the robot cleans in a circle.
    - Edge Cleaning Mode: Used to clean thoroughly corners and along wall edges.
    - Zig-Zag Cleaning Mode: Used to clean in a back-and-forth methodical way larger open areas.
  • Proscenic 790T can be requested to run in three different navigation modes:
    Auto Cleaning Mode: Used for daily cleaning of the entire house. This robot is built with the iPNAS Programmed Cleaning System Automatic Navigation system that provides precise location, smart mapping and follows a logical cleaning pattern (not random) that covers all of the floor.
    Area Cleaning Mode: Used to clean thoroughly selected (2m x 2m) areas.  
    Edge Cleaning Mode: Used to clean thoroughly corners and along wall edges.
Based on your home's cleaning needs, you can select where and how to clean according to any of the various cleaning modes. 
The various modes can be chosen using either your remote-control device or the app on your smartphone. 

Note 5:
Both robots can transition with ease between different types of floors, be it hardwood, laminate, tiled or covered with low pile carpets.
Both robots can easily go under sofas, beds and around furniture, They can cross over 0.31 inch tall obstacles and 25 degrees slopes, clean along wall edges, avoid stairs and minimize collisions.

Note 6:
Both robots are equipped with 
infrared obstacle detectors that reduce collision with furniture to a minimum during cleaning.

Note 7:
Both robots are equipped with infrared anti-drop detectors that prevent the robot from falling down steps or stairs.

​Note 8:
Magnetic strips are easily cut to fit doorways, around pet bowls, or anywhere you don't want your robot to clean. Magnetics strips are included with the purchase of Presconic 811GB.


​Note 9:
Using the associated app, both robots can be scheduled to clean up to 7 times a week, one cleaning at the same time for every day of the week. 

Note 10:
With Proscenic 790T, the visual map of the space that is cleaned can be viewed on the app, and it allows you to better monitor the cleaning status of the room.

Note 11:
When the battery gets low, both robots return to the docking station to recharge and be ready for the next run. 
Important Note: The docking station should be placed against the wall, and all obstacles from within 1 meter on both sides of the station and from about 2 meters in front of the station should be removed.

Note 12:
Both robots are equipped with the optional mopping system that uses a cleaning cloth attached to a reservoir. Once the cloth is attached and the mopping mode is selected, the mopping system dampens the cloth pad from liquid from the reservoir, mops the floor and dries it to a sparkling shine! 
Note that as explained in the next note, Proscenic GB811 is equipped with a water tank that can be controlled using your smartphone or the remote control device. Note the following:
  • With Proscenic 811 GB, the robot vacuums and mops at the same time. The vacuum picks up dirt/debris at the center of the robot and kicks it back into the dust bin, while the water tank oozes water onto a cloth pad at the rear end that mops behind as the robot moves.
  • With Proscenic 790T, the robot does not vacuum and mop at the same time. You'd have to choose either vacuuming or mopping. For mopping you'd have to remove the roller brush, install the water tank and the mopping cloth pad.
In order to avoid carpets from getting wet, it is recommended not to put water in the water tank when carpets are cleaned, and to remove any surrounding carpets when wet mopping is selected.

Note 13:
When mopping is used with Proscenic GB811, because the water tank is equipped with an electronically controlled system, you can control the speed of water seepage from the water tank to the floor as you need. Three water flow rate choices, based on the specific need, are offered: Low, Moderate and High. Note that the robot will not ooze any water when it is stationary, docking, charging or paused; thus, you don't need to worry about leaks when it is not in use.

Note 14:

Both robots are equipped with a HEPA style filter. HEPA stands for "high efficiency particulate air" and is a filter grade defined by the US Department of Energy which requires the filter to be able to remove more than 99.97% of particles.
​These filters are easily removed and cleaned.

 
Note 15:
​Lithium-Ion batteries run longer vacuuming sessions than Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium) or NiMH (Nickel–Metal Hydride) batteries and last longer before battery replacement is needed.

Note 16:

Note that for all vacuuming robots run times can vary extensively depending on the amount of work the robot has to do to clean the floors. That is because different types of carpets, different floor plans and different amounts of dirt may require different amounts of effort from the robot and hence different amounts of ''juice'' from the battery. So, the numbers given in the above comparison table should only be taken only as a guide, and not for exact run times.

Note 17:
Both robots can be remotely controlled in two ways:
  • If you are close to the robot (within the same room), you can use the remote-control device that is provided. 
  • As long as your robot is connected to Wi-Fi, you can also control it remotely from wherever you may be, using your smartphone or tablet.

Note 18:
Both robots are equipped with a dustbin that can be easily removed and emptied. No bags are needed.
