Introduct New DREAME D9 Robot Vacuum Cleaner In Australia and New Zealand

Following from the popular release of the Dreame F9 from August 2020, Xiaomi is releasing another robot vacuum into its smart home appliance eco-system. The Dreame D9 may look similar to its sibling (F9), but there are quite a lot of differences under the hood.

Below is a quick comparison between the Dreame D9 and the Dreame F9:


Dreame D9

Dreame F9


Suction Power



+20% extra power

Battery Capacity



Water Tank Capacity



+35% larger

Dustbin Capacity



-5% smaller


Laser Distance Sensor


Dual Gyro with time-of-flight sensors

More accurate navigation, but sacrifice minor portability

The Dreame D9 is mostly similar in size compared to the F9, 35cm by 35cm, though it is slightly taller at 10cm. This is purposely designed to house the LiDAR navigation system which means greater accuracy in navigation; unlocking advance map memory and room recognition functionality such as multi-room and selected area cleaning, virtual walls, vaccum no-go zones and mop no-go zones.

Dreame Technology has indicated that the Dreame D9 will have Multi-map support in the near future via firmware update. This will allow Dreame D9 to map and operate on multiple levels within the same house.

Other key hardware features of the Dreame D9 includes:

  • 4 levels of suction mode with up to 3,000pascal of suction power.
  • 5,200mAh battery for up to 2.5hours of operation time; and extended further when combined with “Smart Top-up” function. This feature enables the Dreame D9 to top-up for more power during a cleaning session; and continue the clean when the appropriate level of battery is reached.
  • A 570ml dustbin and a 270ml smart electric water tank with adjustable water level for more precise mopping.
  • Removable microfiber roller brush can easily be disassembled for easy access to remove tangled hairs and general maintenance.

The Dreame D9 under the Mi Home app (available on both Android and iOS) comes with all the bells and whistles of a robot vacuum cleaner and more.

Key features for D9 includes:

  • Map Management, where you can merge, divide and rename areas.
  • Virtual boundaries and restricted area memory, where D9 will remember virtual wall previously set and avoid those restricted areas in future operations. The Dreame D9 comes with a new ‘Mopping No-Go Zone’ feature, where D9 will restrict access to these areas when equipped with the smart water tank; leaving your carpets and rugs refresh and dry.
  • Single-room or multi-room cleaning; note that multi-room cleaning will clean rooms based on the sequence in which you select the rooms.
  • (New) Carpet boost mode, where D9 will recognise carpet areas; and turn on maximum suction power, and automatically resume normal suction after leaving the carpet area.

The Dreame D9 is a smart robot vacuum that packs more power, more clever features and reliable navigation system. It is a seriously great workhorse for any modern smart home.
