First impression of the Tesvor M1
Update 13. October 2020
Amazon Prime Day is currently taking place and Tesvor also has various vacuum robots on offer. The Tesvor M1 is available at the low price of only 160 Euros. The price is only valid for Amazon Prime customers. The offer ends on October 14th - midnight.
The first impression of the Tesvor M1 is consistently positive. The packaging, the supplied accessories, the replacement brushes and the robot itself leave a valuable impression. Only the charging station of the robot itself is less valuable. However, considering the price, this is quite manageable.
Commissioning and control
The scope of delivery includes 4 brushes, a brush for cleaning, 2 filters, a magnetic tape (2 meters), the remote control (without batteries), operating instructions and the charging station including charging cable.
Commissioning went off problem-free. The brushes are quickly attached to the bottom and the charging station of the robot is only connected to the power.
What is annoying, however, are the adhesive residues that are left of the sticker. These still had to be removed with kitchen paper and glass cleaner.
The magnetic tape itself can be easily attached to the floor so that the robot does not drive over the closed area.
The control itself can be operated using the supplied remote controls. An app is available for technology fans and people who want to send the robot remotely, which is available on iOS and Android. But more on that later.
The Tesvor M1 has a total of 4 suction profiles. The "Sweeping" program allows the robot vacuum to intelligently vacuum through the home, thereby trying to clean the entire area of the premises. If the surface is completely cleaned, it automatically returns to its charging station. The return to the charging station does not always work properly. The robot often got lost in another room or went in the wrong direction. To fix the problem, the robot must be placed near the charging station to find back.
The "Clean spot" function runs after rotation principle. The robot vacuum moves randomly to any point and then starts to rotate according to the principle of rotation, the circles becoming larger and larger. If it encounters an obstacle, it bypasses it and continues to follow the principle of rotation.
The program "Sweep corners" cleans the Edges of the apartment reliable. The robot vacuum then returns to the charging station.
The user of the Tesvor M1 has the option of independently driving the vacuum robot to specific locations and cleaning it there by hand. This worked only to a limited extent, since the robot responded late to the commands and is therefore difficult to control. This is probably meant as a little gimmick.
The Tesvor M1 has a total of 4 suction profileswhich are only available via the app "WeBack" can be controlled. Only 2 profiles can be controlled via the remote control itself.
From "breastfeeding mode" to "max mode", the modes "normal" and "strong" are still available. However, when operating from the "Strong" mode, entertainment in the same room is no longer possible. Nevertheless, the full suction power at 4.000 Pa is really impressive and the cleaning is very satisfactory.
These two modes "Max mode" and "Strong" are more for when you are not at home and the robot is allowed to develop its full suction power.
The "Breastfeeding mode" can convince with an unobtrusive fan noise. The mode is particularly suitable for normal everyday operation.
The "Normal" mode creates an intrusive noise, but this does not bother you if you are in another room.
Time and plan
The robot vacuum can of course also be used with a Switching schedule Taxes. This can be set using the remote control or the app. It is crucial that the desired suction power is set beforehand. If the robot vacuum starts moving, it cleans the entire apartment.
In addition, you can buy a water tank for the Tesvor M1 for about € 28, which then wipes the apartment. Unfortunately we could not test this function.
In addition, the Tesvor M1 has one Fall protection function, which should protect against stairs. This worked reliably in the test and caused the robot to turn over in front of the danger point.
Auch der magnetic stripe which is attached to the floor so that the robot does not clean the room, serves its purpose.
The control of the Tesvor M1 via the app is quite reliable. One disadvantage, however, is getting used to translating into German. For example, the robot “hibernates” when it is at the charging station.
The app can also be used on the go battery Level or the Charge level recall. In addition, the suction power or another program can also be selected remotely.
If the robot has a problem, a message appears at the top of the app status. However, a push notification on the smartphone is not sent.
