All our robots are IoT devices which can be used by customers sitting in the comfort of their homes and it helps us do troubleshooting for our customers, instead of visiting them physically at their homes, which helps in social distancing during this time of the pandemic. We are also able to advise our customers remotely about any problems they may face, and the possible solutions,” said  Karwal.

They operate with powerful suction power, which makes them twice as effective and capable as their competitors.
