Bosch Indego 400 and Indego 400 Connect

Small and quiet robotic lawnmowers: Optimized lawn care in urban environments

  • Designed for maintaining small to medium lawns
  • The new calender function makes manual programming unnecessary
  • Proven “LogiCut” navigation system for efficient mowing in lanes
  • The “Connect” model can be operated from wherever you are using the app

With the Indego 400 and the Indego 400 Connect, Bosch makes users’ first experience with autonomous lawn care straightforward. There will now be two models that are optimized for lawn care in urban environments: Compared to existing models, they are 50 percent smaller, only half as loud and mow up to 400 square meters. With that the focus is always on the users and their needs: Interest in autonomous lawn care is gathering pace. The advantages are obvious: Once installed, the users can sit back and relax in their gardens. So far, the focus of autonomous lawn care was on large lawn areas of up to 1200 square meters. User analyses show, however, that the majority of all lawns in private gardens (that is to say around 75 percent) are less than 400 square meters in size. This is where Bosch’s new robotic lawnmowers come in.

As with all Indego models, the Indego 400 and Indego 400 Connect work completely independently within a pre-defined area. This area is marked out with a supplied boundary wire before the robotic lawnmower is used for the first time. The Indego 400 and Indego 400 Connect calculate the size of the area to be mowed by traveling along the entire length of this boundary wire once, using sensors and a software to measure the garden. To optimize the task of mowing the calculated area, the models combine two functions: The proven “LogiCut” navigation system for efficient mowing in lanes, and the new calendar function, which eliminates the need to manually program the mowing cycle.

Lawn care made to measure thanks to the intelligent calendar function

The new calendar function automatically calculates the ideal mowing cycle based on the actual lawn size, the area that can be mown in one battery charge, the required charging times, and the breaks that must be observed, for example when people are likely to be taking a siesta or at the weekend. Manual calendar programming is no longer necessary. The frequency of mowing, the days and times at which mowing should take place, and its duration, are all automatically determined. It goes without saying that these can be adjusted by the user flexibly – if you wish, you can specify the frequency of mowing or the days on which you want your Indego to get to work. The intelligent calendar function adapts to your requirements. As a result, the users can rest easy in the knowledge that the entire lawn will always be maintained efficiently, without the need for any intervention on their part. Not only does this save the users time, but they will always know when and for how long the mower will be in action.

Proven “LogiCut” technology and “Bosch Smart Gardening”

The Indego 400 and the Indego 400 Connect use the proven “LogiCut” navigation system for systematic mowing in lanes. The result: A cutting rate that is 50 percent faster than comparable robotic mowers that operate on the basis of a random navigation system. Besides this, the Indego 400 Connect can easily be controlled from wherever you are using the “Bosch Smart Gardening” app. Data is transferred by GSM, the world’s most widely used standard for mobile communications.

Time savings are not just restricted to the use of the robotic lawnmower – self-explanatory symbols ensure that it takes very little time and effort to install the base station, which has undergone a design overhaul: Its more compact dimensions mean that it can now be placed in a corner and requires less space overall. It also now features an integrated cable conduit to store the boundary wire, which makes installation easier.

From February 2017, the Indego 400 and Indego 400 Connect will be available on the market for 899 euros and 1099 euros respectively. The “Bosch Smart Gardening” app, which works with the Indego 400 Connect, is available for Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. It is available free of charge from the Google Play store and the Apple App Store. All the prices stated are recommended retail prices including VAT. Subject to change.
