Roborock S8 MaxV Ultra Breaks New Ground as the First Robotic Vacuum to Achieve Matter Certification

Setting new standards in smart home connectivity and cleaning efficiency, the S8 MaxV Ultra leads the way with advanced integration capabilities

HONG KONG, April 24, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Roborock, a global leader in ultra-intelligent home robotics engineered to simplify daily life, today announced that its S8 MaxV Ultra robotic vacuum has become the world’s first robotic vacuum to receive Matter certification. The certification was awarded by the CSA Alliance after extensive testing at the UL Solutions IoT Lab in Dongguan Songshan Lake.

Unifying Smart Home Technology Through Matter Certification

Matter is founded on a shared vision for smart home devices to be safe, reliable, and convenient to use, allowing us to move into an era where smart home technology connects the whole house. As an open-source standard, Matter enables manufacturers to link a variety of home ecosystem products seamlessly. Any device that supports the Matter protocol can integrate effortlessly across supported platforms, using established technologies like Wi-Fi, BLE, and Thread. This approach aims to remove compatibility barriers between different ecosystems, ensuring a smoother and more integrated connection.

The Roborock S8 MaxV Ultra embraces the Matter protocol with its innovative design, intelligent connectivity, and robust performance features. Equipped with a flexible robotic arm for its side brush, VibraRise 3.0 Sonic Mopping System with an edge mop, and hot water mop-washing capabilities, the S8 MaxV Ultra not only cleans efficiently but also paves the way for potential future integration with major smart ecosystems such as Apple, Amazon, and Google. This certification opens up possibilities for seamless interaction across platforms, clouds, and protocols, potentially enhancing the user experience with a wider array of device connections and applications in the future.


Key Enhancements in the S8 MaxV Ultra
