As robot vacuums and mops have gained in popularity over the years, we’ve become accustomed to new product releases, often with features teased well in advance of a robot vacuum coming to market.
Every once in a while, however, a brand surprises us with something we didn’t see coming. ILIFE, and their X1000 Large Space AI Robot Vacuum is a product we’d definitely file in the surprise category.
ILIFE isn’t new to robot vacuums. The brand has been manufacturing robot vacuums, robotic mops, and 2-in-1 robot vacuum and mop combinations for years. The X1000, however, is something quite different. If you own or have shopped for a robot vacuum, the specifications alone will tell you that the ILIFE X1000 isn’t your run-of-the-mill robotic cleaning assistant.

Commercial & Home Robot Vacuum Cleaner
The ILIFE 2023 Product catalog describes the X1000 as “the world’s first commercial & home dual-purpose AI robot vacuum with 20000Pa hurricane-force suction power.” The description continues on to say the new robot vacuum is “born to solve the floor cleaning problems in both small & medium business” as well as big homes.
Robot Vacuum for (Very) Large Spaces
With a suggested coverage area of up to 800m2, or over 8,600 sq. ft., and up to 200 minutes of run time, the X1000 is clearly geared toward bigger cleaning jobs. ILIFE says the X1000 is good on all surface types, specifically calling out carpet, laminate, tile, and wood flooring.
The large spaces ILIFE notes as places the robot will be at home include large residential homes, hotels, workshops, offices, warehouses, and supermarkets. To navigate those environments, the ILIFE X1000 relies on LiDAR navigation and six 3D ToF (time of flight) sensors and stereo camera AI for obstacle recognition and avoidance.
The only other robot vacuum using 3D ToF at this time that we are aware of is the recently released Eufy X9 Pro. Its obstacle avoidance capabilities left us impressed. It was the first robot vacuum to get a perfect score in our obstacle avoidance test.
We have tested a lot of vacuums, and the one number that really stood out was the X1000’s 20000Pa of suction power. Consumer grade robot vacuums we have recently tested with high suction ratings include Roborock’s S8 Pro Ultra (review, Amazon) at 6000Pa and Q Revo (Amazon) at 5500Pa as well as Ecovacs’ Deebot T20 Omni (Amazon) at 6000Pa.
That puts the X1000 in rarified air with more than triple the suction power. ILIFE’s website notes that power comes by way of a single 300W high-performance brushless motor.
