Smart appliances are becoming more and more part of everyday life every day: refrigerators have already appeared that can order groceries themselves via the Internet, depending on the preferences of the owner. These gadgets also help with cleaning. Today we want to present you a robot vacuum cleaner developed by GUTREND. This is the SENSE 410 model, which has a truly huge number of original and useful features that can please even the most picky users.
What comes with the device?
The device is packaged in a stylish cardboard box with all the necessary information printed on it. The instrument and accessories are packed very well, so there is no chance of damage during transport. Along with the robot vacuum cleaner itself, you can find the following parts:
- Virtual wall, which is a magnetic tape;
- Charging station for fast and safe battery charging;
- A container where garbage will accumulate during dry or wet cleaning;
- Cloth made of microfiber and designed specifically for wet cleaning;

- Four side brushes at once;
- Napkin for wiping the case;
- Brush for the most effective cleaning of the container from dirt;
- Network adapter;
- 2 AAA batteries for the remote control.
If necessary, consumables such as side brushes and wipes can be purchased separately on the manufacturer’s website – shop.gutrend.com.
Key Features of Gutrend Sense 410
The vacuum cleaner can be used for dry or wet cleaning. A dust collection bag is not provided here; instead, a special container equipped with a cyclone filter is installed in the product. The volume of the dust collector is decent enough for similar equipment – 0.5 liters. The maximum suction power is 28W. The robot vacuum cleaner has three stages of filtration at once. On a single battery charge, the design can work without interruption for three hours. The battery charges in just over 4 hours. The complete battery has a capacity of 2600 mAh.
On the body of the vacuum cleaner there are 40 sensors at once, providing competent orientation in the space of the room. Engine power allows to achieve a travel speed of up to 14.5 m/min. All sensors are infrared, so the device will move with ease even in total darkness. There are eight cleaning modes in total. The vacuum cleaner has the function of limiting the cleaning area. It can move along various trajectories – in a spiral, in a zigzag, along walls. If suddenly the device gets stuck, it will emit a corresponding sound signal. If desired, you can program the structure in such a way that it will clean itself when the owners are not at home.

You can manage the settings through an application installed on a smartphone running iOS or Android operating systems. Synchronized with a mobile device using the Wi-Fi protocol. The mass of the product is insignificant – it is only 2.4 kg with overall dimensions of 70x332x332 mm. A small height allows the device to penetrate even the most inaccessible places – under batteries, furniture, etc.
Before us is a multifunctional robot vacuum cleaner, which, as we found out during the testing of the device, is an excellent solution for wet or dry cleaning of even a large area. Products are placed in a case made of high-strength plastic, so the product can withstand even significant physical impact. All elements are fitted to each other quite tightly, so we did not have a single complaint about the assembly and the overall quality of production.
The case has a black color, looks very stylish, we immediately liked it as soon as we took it out of the package. On the top side there is a control panel and a connection indicator with a Wi-Fi channel. In front, the manufacturer installed a shock-absorbing bumper, equipping it with a rubberized lining. This allows you to protect both the device itself and pieces of furniture from possible damage if an accidental collision occurs. Directly along the perimeter of the bumper there are 11 pairs of spatial sensors that allow you to timely detect all possible obstacles in the way of the device.
At the bottom you can find a number of the following elements:
- Front wheel for turning the robot;
- Terminals required to connect the battery;
- Side brushes;
- Sensors that detect differences in floor height;
- Side drive wheels driven by an electric motor;
- Central brush;
- A hole that sucks dust and other contaminants;
- Dust container.
The triple filtration system allows you to almost completely clean the air of the room from dust, making it clean and fresh. On top there is a compartment for a HEPA filter. To empty the dust collector, snap off the special locks that hold it and pour the garbage into the bag. The dust collector itself is also made of plastic, so if necessary, it can be washed under running water. For wet cleaning, a special container is installed that has an automatic water supply system.
For a complete cleaning of the floor surface, you need to fix a microfiber cloth. When developing the device, the latest SMART DRIP 2.0 technology was used, which provides smart water supply and allows you to keep its level under full control. If the gadget stops moving, the water will automatically stop flowing.
Before starting the direct use of the device, be sure to install side brushes. It is very simple to do this – you need to turn the vacuum cleaner over and insert them into special mounts. During operation, they direct all dirt towards the central brush, due to which the efficiency of the cleaning process is greatly increased.
Functionality and setting of the machine
As we said above, a high level of maneuverability is achieved through the front swivel wheel. The driving side wheels are made of rubberized materials, with their help the vacuum cleaner is able to overcome obstacles up to 15 mm high, while the floor covering will not be damaged. If it becomes necessary to interrupt the cleaning process, you can press the “Home” button on the remote control or through the application, and the device will return to the charging station and automatically connect to the charger.

Using the remote control, you can switch to the manual control mode of the device, set the vector of its movement yourself by pressing the arrows. You can store the remote control in the charger – a special compartment is provided for this, but we practically did not use it during testing, since the vacuum cleaner has a very convenient application. With it, you can control the device from anywhere in the world where there is access to the Internet. It was possible to synchronize the smartphone and the vacuum cleaner on the second attempt, which took 30 seconds. To do this, you need to follow a number of simple steps:
- Download the appropriate application;
- Go through the registration process;
- Enter your email address or mobile phone number to receive an access code;
- At the last stage, the code is entered into the application and the corresponding password is set.
Using the application, you can control all the capabilities of the device, connect several similar robots to one smartphone at once, and create a cleaning schedule. Magnetic tape is necessary in order to limit the area of movement of the structure. It will be useful in the case when it is required that the vacuum cleaner does not clean the entire apartment, but only one or several rooms, without looking into others.
The device received the most modern navigation system OPTIMAL ROUTE 2.0. After the first cleaning, the robot will analyze the dimensions and features of the room, after which it will build the optimal route of movement along the floor surface. In total, the vacuum cleaner has eight modes of operation:
- Intelligent cleaning;
- Wet cleaning with automatic water supply;
- Quick cleaning of difficult stains;
- Quick cleaning without building a route around the room;
- Work with strong pollution;
- Cleaning along the walls;
- The highest power;
- Scheduled cleaning.
If the owner is worried about the safety of the furniture, then especially for such cases there is a “Delicate cleaning”, which allows to provide a high level of protection against accidental collisions.
First of all, we decided to use the intelligent cleaning mode. It is well thought out and has good performance. The device first cleans the entire room with a snake, and then passes around the perimeter twice, paying special attention to the corners of the room. All sensors work stably: the robot does not crash into anything, it goes around the legs of tables, chairs, and furniture. In a straight line, it accelerates to maximum speed, and even with difficult terrain it is removed quickly enough. It passes well under pieces of furniture if they are at least 72 mm from the floor.

In order for the cleaning to be as efficient as possible, it is better to first install the container for dry work, and then move on to wet. The battery charge was enough to completely clean a three-room apartment, and the battery was not completely discharged. The instructions say that the water tank is enough for an hour of continuous operation – in principle, this is true if you set the supply to a minimum. If the water is supplied more intensively, then it will have to be topped up.
There were no problems when setting up the application. It is very convenient to manage in this way. When the suction power is set to maximum, it takes almost all the dirt: buckwheat, millet, semolina and large chickpeas were scattered for testing. I collected all these products without problems, but the second time, after the first pass, I left a little.
In general, such a robot vacuum cleaner is perfect for daily cleaning, but if you set it up for cleaning once every three to four days, then the final quality will be lower. When using the vacuum cleaner, we paid close attention to the design of the side brushes: they have very thoughtful ergonomics. They are very tight to the body, so they will not wind hair. The main brush can be easily removed and cleaned if necessary.
We were pleasantly surprised by such a wide range of equipment – there is everything you need for comfortable use. The case is plastic, but with a glossy finish. It looks very attractive, but too easily soiled – literally after each cleaning, the device has to be thoroughly wiped from dust attracted by static electricity. The length of the magnetic strip, which acts as a virtual wall, is two meters – if desired, even a very wide doorway can be enclosed.
I would also like to note the long period of warranty service: four years, and during the first year a full free warranty repair is provided. The rest of the time (2, 3 and 4 years of ownership of the device), the manufacturer offers us free service, but for the supply of spare parts, transportation costs will have to be paid by the consumer. The instructions are detailed, clear, albeit small. I was especially pleased with the elaboration of the additional book Quick Start – large letters, accompanied by a photo, everything is short and to the point. Anyone will understand.
Now we need to consider the moments that we did not really like. First of all, when working in the dry cleaning mode, the device makes quite a lot of noise (although, most likely, this is due to the fact that we set the maximum suction power), when wet cleaning, it works about twice as quiet. It happened that the vacuum cleaner left the container for wet cleaning behind it. It is fastened with a latch and a button, so it is possible that they themselves unreliably installed it in their place.
If the water tank is filled to capacity, then for the laminate, in our opinion, the moisture supply is slightly higher than desired, although it is automatically controlled. The solution is quite simple – fill in half or 2/3 of the volume. When switching the water supply level through the application, there was no particular difference. It is problematic to throw out the collected garbage – with a wet container it is much easier than with a dry one. When in another room, it searches for a base for a long time. We had to switch to manual control and drive it to the charging point. All obstacles are treated with the utmost care. However, it even goes around the curtains during cleaning – it was not in vain that they wrote in the instructions that they should be removed from the floor.
Advantages, disadvantages and conclusions
Based on the results of the active use of this vacuum cleaner, we decided to attribute the following points to its pluses:
- Carefully thought-out room navigation system;
- Quick setup of the device both in manual mode and through a mobile application;
- Quite a wide range of equipment;
- Assembly of very high quality;
- A significant number of operating modes;
- The low body allows you to penetrate almost any piece of furniture;
- The suction power level can be adjusted.
Of the significant shortcomings, one should single out only some inconvenience of cleaning containers and the high cost of the apparatus, which fully justifies itself. Of the small minuses, it should be noted that the case is made of glossy plastic, which quickly gets dirty.
As a result, we came across a very effective device that provides high-quality cleaning without damaging floors and furniture. The product works stably, the battery is reliable, there were no particular complaints about it. We can safely recommend the Gutrend SENSE 410 robot vacuum cleaner for quality daily cleaning!
