HOM-BOT SQUARE for Smarter, Faster, More Efficient Cleaning

The HOM-BOT SQUARE revolutionizes vacuuming by offering users a new level of efficiency and convenience.

The greater reach of the brushes combined with the square shape of the cleaner leaves dust few places to hide. The upgraded Dual Eye 2.0™ camera sensors more accurately scan and map floor surfaces, even with the lights turned off. Ultrasonic and infrared sensors enable the HOM-BOT SQUARE to detect and avoid obstacles with ease. Thanks to its Learning Function, the HOM-BOT SQUARE can also recognize the areas it has cleaned on previous jobs.

Users will further enjoy a host of convenient features such as Voice Guidance and Smart Diagnosis that troubleshoots problems more easily. And unlike most other robot vacuums, the HOM-BOT SQUARE is powered by a lithium polymer battery that runs and lasts longer.


KOMPRESSOR FOLLOW ME™ with Automatic Following Technology

LG’s new KOMPRESSOR FOLLOW ME™ follows the user’s path, so customers no longer need to constantly carry the canister from room to room when vacuuming. Using Automatic Location Recognition Technology and Active Following Wheel Technology, the vacuum cleaner uses four interconnected sensors located on its body and handle to monitor and maintain a comfortable distance of approximately 100cm from the user. Sensors installed on the body automatically detect the handle’s movement. Following detection, the sensors trigger the Active Following Wheel Technology to enable effortless, smooth and paced movement in accordance with the user.

The KOMPRESSOR FOLLOW ME™ is equipped with LG’s proprietary KOMPRESSOR™ technology, which uses a motorized dust compression system within the bagless bin to compress the collected debris. This technology also reduces messy dust clouds when emptying the dustbin.
