Camera Equipped Robot Vacuum Ensures The Floor Under Your Couch Will Always Be Dirty

When it comes to being a robot vacuum the G182, available from Chinavasion, does everything you’d expect a reasonably equipped model to do these days, like automatically dock with the charging base when the battery gets low, and it comes with a wireless IR virtual fence to keep it from wandering into places it shouldn’t go.

But the inclusion of a remote controlled pan and tilt IR-equipped webcam, which has the unfortunate side effect of ensuring it won’t fit under most couches, means the G182 also doubles as a remote cleaning tool and surveillance unit that can be controlled and monitored from anywhere in the world you have a net connection. It connects to your home wi-fi network providing both a live video and audio feed, and the whole setup is perfect for anyone who’s ever worried that someone might break into their home only to be horrified to find the floors are dirty. How embarrassing! ~$500.

    A surveillance device/vacuum? I never imagined the two would be compatible. But, and perhaps I'm the only one who sees the potential problem with this, given that a surveillance system is usually supposed to be a “secret” kind of thing, my guess is that the hum of the vacuum would be a little distracting to that end. No thanks– I'd rather have the dirt under my couch taken care of.

    Couldn't they just make a smaller camera… I mean hell they have camera's in buttons. I think this would be easy fixable.
