Greenworks GRV-5011 Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Welcome to the world of Greenworks, with this time being the GRV-5011 self-emptying robot vacuum that also mops in a Y-shape. A unique motor and air-duct design is meant to reduce noise and probably hair tangling as well. Dirt is kept within for 45 days.

Operational overview

There is dToF LiDAR tech for navigation and 3D laser obstacle avoidance. The bot avoids collisions, but not all the time. This is one of the consequences of path planning that is not optimal.

Because of its low profile, the GRV-5011 can glide under furniture if need be. Because of its anti-dropping sensors, the GRV-5011 should not fall off heights, such as stairs, but the GRV-5011 may say a drop sensor is blocked, needing wiping.

Whenever a carpet is encountered, suction is automatically boosted. When the battery is low, the GRV-5011 redocks to recharge, but not all the time.

Different modes

Some of the cleaning modes include:

  • Quiet: 1,000 Pascals
  • Automatic: 2,000 Pascals
  • Strong: 4,000 Pascals
  • Maximum: 8,000 Pascals

About the water tank levels:

  • Zero (dry mopping)
  • Low
  • Medium
  • High

Smart control

You can utilize voice control through Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. To Alexa, you can say something like, “Alexa, turn on GRV-5011.”

With the SMARTg app, you can schedule a cleaning, select a room to be cleaned, or simply see the map. No-go zones and no-mop zones can be set as well. The app lets you know if the dust bag is full.

Final disclaimers

The setup process may require patience. Also, there is a chance your GRV-5011 unit may not pick up as much dirt as competitors with only a fraction of its specs. Finally, be sure to handle the water tank with care.
