LG HOM-BOT’s unique square design is the key to thorough cleaning for smarter living

SINGAPORE, 20 AUGUST 2013 – LG Electronics is introducing a new era of smart cleaning with
its HOM-BOT SQUARE smart vacuum cleaner which is now available in Singapore stores. The
HOM-BOT Square is the second generation of LG’s popular HOM-BOT cleaner. The new squareshaped design which cleans corners 89% more efficiently than conventional (1) round shaped
models makes cleaning homes a smarter and easier process.

Designed to help consumers lead more convenient lives while effectively saving time, the HOMBOT is a testament to what LG Electronics is all about. With its sophisticated technology and
resource-saving functions, the HOM-BOT SQUARE is touted to be the next generation of smart

Scott Jung, Managing Director of LG Electronics Singapore says, “The LG HOM-BOT has enjoyed
great popularity among consumers since its debut. The HOM-BOT SQUARE is not just a mere
upgrade in performance percentages, but rather a step further in developing the smart living
concept. At LG Electronics, we strive to put the needs of the consumers at the center of our
products and base our design on the modern living. We are always trying to make the home
experience more enjoyable for families and make their domestic life smarter. ”

LG engineers based the design of the new HOM-BOT on a square, different from the circular
design of most Robot cleaners. The cleaner’s unique square design, hi-tech smart sensors and
newly improved brushes (1.5cm longer than those in the previous model) are collectively called
‘Corner Master’. They enable the HOM-BOT SQUARE to reach corners of the room more
effectively than other cleaners.

The Upgraded Dual Eye2.0™, the World’s first and unique Dual Eye System, uses 2 cameras to
supply the cleaner with spatial information, telling it when the edge of the room has been
reached, when to turn and when to stop.

(1) Based on internal lab test results comparing LG HOM-BOT 2.0 with LG HOM-BOT SQUARE

Sensitive Dual Eye2.0™ camera sensors scan the floor, sampling multiple images per second and
then analyze the information to generate an accurate map of the space – even with dim lighting.

The Learning Function in the HOM-BOT SQUARE automatically remembers room designs and
furniture locations, in turn, minimizing bumping and maximising optimal coverage.

The HOM-BOT SQUARE is also packed with on-board ultrasonic and infrared sensors which
allow the machine to detect and easily avoid obstacles in its path.

LG’s HOM-BOT SQUARE also features Turbo Mode, which allows the user to manually set
cleaning functions to the specific requirements of their flooring. Additionally, Smart Turbo
Mode enables the cleaner to detect the type of flooring and change its own settings

Key Features of the HOM-BOT SQUARE:

  • Corner Master: Corner Master enables thorough corner cleaning due to the square shaped design and 1.5cm longer side brushes that reaches corners and walls closer than round-shaped vacuum cleaners
  • Dual Eye 2.0™: HOM-BOT SQUARE Dual Eye 2.0™ automatically calculates the intensity of light and uses its unique upper and lower camera to create a map of the ceiling and the floor. With better bearings, HOM-BOT SQUARE can effectively manoeuvre around the room without losing its way.
  • Easy-out Dust Bin: HOM-BOT SQUARE’s dust bin is designed to take out from the top. Easier to use than the conventional sliding type of dust bins, HOM-BOT SQUARE’s dust bin minimizes hassles of residual dust and has a bigger capacity(0.6L) for more dust intake
  • Low noise level: With its lower noise level of 60dB(A), cleaning can be done without disturbing the rest of the household
  • HEPA 11 Filter: The bigger HEPA 11 Filter traps harmful dust particles and helps HOMBOT SQUARE cleaning system release back clean air
  • Smart Turbo: Smart Turbo mode automatically converts its cleaning mode to Turbo – mode when HOM-BOT SQUARE senses carpet floors. After cleaning, it automatically turns off the Turbo Mode
  • Learning Function: Learning Function allows the HOM-BOT SQUARE to memorize the location of obstacles and cliffs of your rooms, this minimizes bumping
  • Voice Guidance: With more than 90 voice alerts, this function notifies users of HOM-BOT SQUARE’s current status and movements, voice guidance can be put to silence when needed
  • Child Lock: Locks the button on HOM-BOT SQUARE preventing unintended operation by kids or pets
  • My Space: Allow you to set the specific area where cleaning should be done
