Honda redefines convenience with the launch of its new Miimo robotic lawnmowers. Benefitting from significant new developments in navigation, smartphone connectivity and new sensors, Honda's latest offerings include the HRM1000, HRM1500, HRM1500 Live, HRM2500, HRM2500 Live, HRM 4000 Live along with the existing HRM40, HRM40 Live and HRM70 Live.
Precise Manoeuvring with Shortcut Wire Technology
A standout feature across the range is Shortcut Wire technology (excluding HRM1000). This allows Miimo to navigate narrow passages with unmatched precision, effortlessly manoeuvring through spaces as tight as 60 cm wire to wire. The elimination of the need to set up narrow passages to mowing start points results in a substantial increase in operational efficiency and speed. Users will appreciate the elimination of wheel tracks, ensuring a flawlessly manicured lawn every time.
Intelligent Navigation with Satellite Assisted Homing
Setting a new standard in precision, the Miimo HRM1500 Live, HRM2500 Live, and HRM4000 Live models introduce Satellite Assisted Homing technology. This advanced feature enhances operational efficiency by providing higher accuracy in navigation. Additionally, these models offer Free Zones, allowing users to set areas for Miimo to avoid mowing for defined periods for various uses, such as keeping areas free for garden activities and encouraging biodiversity.
Seamless Connectivity for Modern Living
Mobile network connectivity on the new Live models contributes to a more intuitive and user-friendly experience, allowing users to interact with their robotic mowers effortlessly through a dedicated smartphone app from anywhere in the world. The Mii-monitor app offers an intuitive interface for seamless control from anywhere, featuring colour-coded indicators for quick monitoring. The app allows users to activate automatic cutting height adjustment and GPS tracking for enhanced security via geofencing.
The new Smart Timer, using real-time weather data, protects Miimo and your lawn, providing push notifications and avoiding mowing in adverse conditions. Live models offer 4G/3G connectivity and voice control through the Miimo Amazon Alexa skill, elevating precision lawn care with smart convenience. Customers buying the non-Live models will still be able to enjoy many of the benefits of the Mii-monitor app by connecting to Miimo via Bluetooth.
Positioned between the HRM40/70 range and the larger models in the range, the HRM1000 targets users seeking a straightforward solution for their lawncare needs. It is designed for customers with small to medium-sized gardens, but who still want to benefit from the excellent terrain handling and slopes of up to 25 degrees with the same cutting precision found in the larger models. The simple yet intuitive display allows easy commands like start, stop, and send Miimo home, while Bluetooth connectivity seamlessly integrates with the Mii-monitor app for comprehensive smartphone control.
Physical Advancements of the Miimo Range
The next generation Miimo range not only redefines automated lawn care with its advanced navigation and connectivity but also boasts remarkable physical enhancements. Featuring new quiet sensors, facilitated by the innovative "Joystick" structure, Miimo ensures a gentler and more refined mowing experience. The HRM4000 Live model stands out with heavy-duty rear wheels, providing durability and preventing mud and leaf accumulation, making it ideal for challenging conditions such as heavy mud, leaves, and abrasive ground. Additionally, the soft opening display cover, adds a touch of sophistication. These physical attributes collectively contribute to a superior Miimo experience, combining innovation with durability for a seamlessly maintained lawn.
