Today, iRobot has just announced a new line of robotic friends. Their Pet Series includes: the iRobot Roomba Pet Series and Professional Series Vacuum Cleaning Robots. As the name implies, the Pet Series is designed to remove pet hair and dander.

The Roomba 532 sells for $349 and comes with extra brushes, a high-capacity sweeper bin, and cleaning tools to keep the unit free from debris. The sweeper bin holds three-and-a-half times more debris than a vacuum bin and its counter-rotating brushes reach deep into carpets to pull out pet hair and dander. The Roomba 532 can clean three rooms on a single battery charge.

The Roomba 562 sells for $399 and comes with all the same attachments and tools as the 532 model. The 562 can handle up to one additional room for cleaning and also comes equipped with on-board scheduling. The on-board scheduling enables you to schedule automatic cleans ups at specified times, even when you´re not around.

The iRobot Roomba 610 Professional Series Robot sells for $599 and is designed for small business owners or those with larger areas to clean. The 610 model also features a high capacity sweeper bin, extra brushes and filters, and cleaning tools. It comes equipped with two interchangeable bins that can be used for everyday cleaning or for picking up larger amounts of debris.

All Roomba Pet and Professional Series robots include iRobot´s patented three-stage cleaning system that automatically adjusts to effectively clean carpets and hard floors. Roomba´s intelligent cleaning system evaluates its environment more than 60 times per second so the robot is always delivering the right amount of cleaning power to your floor, regardless of the size of the room, or the size of the pet.
