Trifo Ollie AI Home Robot Vacuum and Video Review
Furballs accumulating under the couch faster than you can sweep them up? We’ve got Trifo Ollie AI Home Robot Vacuum and Video to make a clean sweep.
Living with pets comes with many joys, but there’s no denying that there’s plenty of mess involved: from hair all over the place, dander, kibble crumbs, odors… whew! To keep your home clean and tidy when living with a cat or a dog, you’ll have to clean daily, and that can quickly become tiresome. That’s why we take any help we can get – such as this fantastic robot pet vacuum cleaner powered by artificial intelligence!
The vision behind the Ollie AI robot vacuum cleaner is simple: it was designed specifically for pet owners, to make sure that you can spend quality time with your pet rather than wasting time cleaning up after them. And boy oh boy, does it deliver!
Equipped with plenty of smart features, the Ollie AI robot vacuum is uniquely equipped to tackle pet-created messes and so much more beyond that. Let’s start with the perks first, ‘cause that’s what really makes this vacuum cleaner for pet owners stand out from the crowd. In addition to its cleaning features, this robot vacuum boasts the industry's first built-in laser pointer and an air freshener, as well as a 1080P HDR camera that you can use to listen, talk, and record your pets wherever you are. The laser pointer is detachable and can be used to distract your kitty from the vacuum itself while it does its thing, and the air freshener is particularly convenient as it greatly helps eliminate pet odors around the house. Apart from doubling as a pet camera, the Ollie also has a ToF (Time-of-flight) depth camera which allows it to precisely detect objects even in low night conditions – it can identify objects as small as 1-inch in height!
As Ollie is powered by artificial intelligence, it doesn’t lack smart features. It can be paired with Alexa or Google Home and you can use voice commands to start or stop the operation – or you can opt for using the Trifo app to completely control and customize the whole process, from setting schedules and cleaning modes to monitoring real-time cleaning. Because of its smart mapping function, it can map out 3.3X more efficiently than ordinary robot vacuums, while recognizing and dividing rooms automatically (you can even name each through the app). You can also set no-go zones to really customize everything to your preference.
The runtime is up to 120-min on a single charge with a 5200mAh battery, which roughly translates to cleaning 2,000 square feet in one go – and thanks to a 600 ml capacity dustbin, you won’t have to empty it mid-vacuuming as it can comfortably hold everything Ollie sucks out of your floors.
But Does It Suck?
How does Ollie compare when it comes to vacuuming performance? Thanks to its powerful 4000Pa suction and six-sided claw brush, Ollie will leave no pet hair, lint, or crumbs in its wake – just one go over an area is enough for this clever little robot vacuum to pick up all of the debris from the floors. And, as a special treat for pet owners, you also get an additional brushless attachment called Pet Hair Extractor which does exactly what it says – completely eliminates any hair from your home, along with those annoying dust bunnies. Thanks to the built-in HEPA and activated charcoal filter, Ollie also captures allergens and keeps the air in the room clean and fresh at all times.

Finally, a robot vac made just for pet hair! I’ve had my fair share of robot vacuums in the past, but not one was made with pets in mind. And I’ve never had one with a camera in it, which is a cool perk. Plus, with a price point of $299.99, it’s a much better value than most on the market. This is a must buy for pet parents – it’s perfect for hard wood, tiles, and carpet. There’s no excuse for furballs anymore! Head on over to Amazon to buy yours.
