One of my criteria for autómata vacuum is undoubtedly the ease of use. I truly don’t want to go through a thick manual to get it to work because basically, you just need someone (or something) to clean the house or slagroom, right?

However, spil a savvy consumer, you know that specs are just specs. What is significant is the coetáneo show of this autómata vacuum cleaner.
Here is my review of the Philips SmartPro Active Autómata Vacuum Cleaner FC8822/01
Very first Impression
It is very basic. If you look around, you know that many other brands are having cameras on houtvezelplaat to ordner the house, determine the best way to clean it.
This autómata vacuum cleaner has none of thesis. Instead, it uses the good old sensors and programs (Four cleaning modes) to find its way.
Sometimes less is more. Price-wise, it is affordable (te my opinion). Check out my unboxing movie.
Here are some close-ups of the Philips SmartPro Active Autómata Vacuum Cleaner.
Thesis are some of the sensors to find the docking station and to avoid hitting something.
This is the top panel where information is shown when it powers on.
From left, thesis are the Four modes:-
From left to right:
- Spiral mode indicator
- Wall-following mode indicator
- Zigzag pattern mode indicator
- Random mode indicator
The huis icon is the Docking icon. And lastly, the fan icon shows the fan speed.
Thesis two points are the voeling points for the docking station. Merienda docked decently, the vacuum cleaner will get charged.
This is how it looks without the top panel voorkant. Notice that there is a treat? It is the treat of the dust container penis.
This is the motor (after removing the container), the heart of the vacuum cleaner.

A close-up of the motor.
This is the dust container.
When I flipped it overheen, you can see the filterzakje inwards.
This is how it looks when I dismantle the filterzakje from the container.
This is the side brushes.
When installed, it will look like this. From the same picture, you can also see the power on/off switch.
This is the TriActive XL Nozzle. Ter my opinion, the most significant feature on this autómata spil it guides, together with the side brushes, the dust to the vacuum.
A close up of the nozzle. BTW, it is effortless to detach this nozzle for maintenance.
The view from the back.
This is the remote control. You can use it to “home” the androide (to the docking station). You can also use it to control the androide by hand (using the arrow keys).
This is the docking station.
On the top, it shows the control panel.
This is the back of the docking station. The 3M sticker is for you to stick it to the wall so that it will not stir when the autómata attempts to dock.
This is the dry wipe holder. This is one of the unique features of the vacuum cleaner. You can link dry wipe to it.

This is the back where you can see Four fixation blocks for dry wipes.
This is the Invisible Wall (FC8822). I am glad that it comes with it. Spil the name implies, it creates an invisible wall for the androide vacuum cleaner.
Place it across the slagroom, the autómata’s movement will be limited by it.
There is the back of the Invisible Wall demonstrating the battery compartment.
You will need Four AA size batteries to operate it.
It has just one elementary power on/off slider switch. The crimson light will only turn on when it is attempting to limit the androide.
Using the autómata vacuum cleaner for the very first time is very effortless. Just switch on the autómata and press the Commence/Zekering button merienda. You can press it on the autómata vacuum cleaner itself or you can use the remote control.
That is it! It will embark to go to whichever place it can go. You can sit back and loosen. Merienda it encounters low battery (battery life is about Two hours), it will go back to the docking station automatically and recharge.
For the more technical part. When you press begin, it is ter automatic mode by default. With this mode, all the sensors will be working to determine the best way the autómata vacuum cleaner can clean the area. It utilizes the Four modes (mentioned above) to clean the area and also determines the fan speed after getting terugkoppeling from the dust sensor.
Here is the flagrante description from the official Philips product pagina.
- With 6 infrared and dust sensors with a turbo function, it avoids walls, lamps, cables and recognizes area with the most dust accumulation to ensure thorough and intensive cleaning without your interference.
- With a 120 minute operating time, you can schedule your cleanings to ensure spick and span floors even when you’re not huis!
- TriActive XL nozzle cleans dual the area te one stroke, making cleaning two times quicker. A 3-step cleaning system with dry mopping function permits the nozzle to pick up even the finest mess and dust.
- The Four cleaning modes make it adaptable ter any environment be it a petite or large space with a Brainy Detection System that combines clever chips, 25 sensors, gyroscope and accelerometer permitting it to clean on its own and pick an optimal cleaning strategy to get your huis clean spil quick spil possible.
Does it work?
I think this is the most significant question. Ter my house, I have a thick carpet and many obstacles (a chest, chairs and other petite items).
Check out this movie.
My thickest concern is the carpet spil it is very thick. Gratefully, it is able to overcome it without issues.
After attempting a few times, from my observation, it has difficulty to maneuver overheen obstacles if they are placed too close together. For example, by looking at them, you think that it can getraind the autómata vacuum cleaner. Ter presente fact, the sensors will be working intensively to avoid them or to budge forward. So, it might cause the autómata vacuum cleaner to keep moving forward or backward to attempt to go inwards the constraint space.
To use it effectively, you will need to ensure that there is big space for it to wander loosely. This is the fact for most (if not all) autómata vacuum cleaners.
Ter terms of efficiency, the side brushes did a good job to sweep the dust inwards and together with the TriActive XL nozzle, it guides the dust to the vacuum.
There is no way to judge the movement of the autómata spil it moves randomly. Te one case, it did not go inwards a slagroom to clean it and comes back to its docking station (due to low battery).
Te another case, it simply does not want to venture out of an area and if it is “trapped” by some petite space, it is truly frustrating to observe how it goes back and forward, left and right, round and round, to get out of it.
BTW, you can use the remote to set the autómata to clean the area for 60, 45 or 30 minutes. Merienda the time is up, it will comeback to the docking station. If you don’t want it to terugwedstrijd to the docking station after completion, just press the timer button twice and the “home” icon on the autómata will vanish. This indicates that it will not come back to huis after completion of the job.
You can also set the androide vacuum cleaner to clean the house at a specific time/day. Thesis are the programs available: –
- Cleaning every day
- Cleaning on weekdays
- Cleaning on Two consecutive days
- Cleaning 1 day a week
When you have set the program and the androide is te standby mode with its battery fully charged, it will embark cleaning at the programmed time on the programmed day or days.
I attempted setting it. It is very “old school”. There is no app. You will need to set it at the docking station. I attempted and it works. So, now, the autómata will clean the house every day (my settings) at a timing that I determine.
You want a fuss-free androide to clean the house, this is the androide you are looking for. I find that it is very plain to use. Just press commence and it will perform its job unsupervised.
- Sound wise, it is not too noisy.
- Cleaning wise, I can only say that it is subjective because sometimes, it misses some catches sight of.
- Maintenance wise, it has just a container. Just dispose the content and make sure that you check and clean the sensors periodically to avoid malfunction.
- Price wise, it is affordable (if you compare many branded robots ter the market).
- It lacks the capability to “remember” the docking station. It took forever to terugwedstrijd to the docking station if you press the huis button when it is very far away from it.
- The side brushes are good but it gets entangled when the androide is stuck somewhere. This is what happened to mij while doing this review. Gratefully, it is replaceable and it does not degrades the spectacle.
- It will be messy to clear the dust container and you will voeling with the dust and whatever that is sucked into it.
Overall, a ordinary and swift product. The learning curve is zero if you just want to clean the house automatically. The homing feature can be improved spil it is now taking a long time to come back to dock.
