Ambrogio 4.0 Elite Robotic Lawn Mower Review
There’s no doubt about it, robotic devices like robotic lawnmowers are taking the world by storm. Innovative devices like the Ambrogio 4.0 Elite Extra Premium take the headache and hassle out of cutting the grass to give you back the precious time you need to truly live your best life.
Of course, not everyone is comfortable with letting a device roam autonomously in their year unchecked. To address this relevant point, Ambrogio designed this unit with a suite of sophisticated controls and software options. It features Bluetooth and wireless connectivity via its ZCS smart app. This means you can control the Ambrogio 4.0 Elite Extra Premium from your smartphone whether you are lounging on the couch or working hard at the office.
The app has a variety of features including voice assist to let you precisely dial in where the Ambrogio 4.0 can and can’t go. It uses precision GPS technology to let you dial in the exact limits of its range. You can even use Geo-Fence technology to ban it from certain parts of the yard that might have sensitive plants or other landscaping features.
The Geo-Fence system also pairs with the anti-theft system software to make sure no one makes off with your robotic mower. Should someone try to steal the Ambrogio 4.0 the Geo-Fence alert will go off and you can then use the GPS via the ZCS app to find it again.
This Premium version of the Ambrogio 4.0 also comes with a special “Induction Recharge Device.” Not only does it help with rapid charging it also spares you the hassle of having to periodically clean charging contact points. This is a relatively new innovation that you don’t really find on competitor robotic mowers.
The Ambrogio 4.0 Elite Extra Premium comes with a high-quality lithium-ion battery. From fully charged it can cut between .5 to .8 acres of grass depending on terrain and density. It can handle up to a 23.5-degree slope to help tackle a hilly yard.
The cutting height can also be adjusted to fit the prevailing conditions. If the local weather has the grass growing fast you can dial it down as low as .8 of an inch. If you need to leave it long during a prolonged dry spell, you can dial it up to 2.5 inches to help keep the sun from baking the turf.
