Vacuum cleaner is commonly used by individual in household and also in most of the indoor buildings, such as office, supermarket or shops. Individual nowadays prefer automatic systems rather than manual equipment, where broom or cloths are gradually replaced by vacuum cleaner in cleaning process. The invention of vacuum cleaner is to ease users to clean up the environment without spending too much energy and time, since it offer a better efficiency. However, the vacuum cleaner nowadays consuming very high power, which causing electric bill of user raise high, yet lead to not environmental friendly issue. This automatic suction vacuum cleaner is designed to reduce the usage of electricity, where lower power is sufficient on shiny surface compared to non-shiny surface. The automatic power changing system will trigger lower power of AC motor so that it save electricity when using on shiny surface which high power is not necessary. A photoelectric sensor is designed to detect the type of surface which the vacuum cleaner is applied to. Once the sensor determined the type of surface, it will automatically trigger the motor either in higher power on non-shiny surface or lower power on shiny surface. Besides, an additional manual switch is added so that user can choose to use high power or low power or automatic mode when using the vacuum cleaner. This function will allow user to clean some hard dirt with high power on shiny surface if low power is not sufficient. Some carpet are made of special fabric where high power will spoil its material, and hence low power can be selected by user manually when cleaning on such kind of non-shiny surface. An automatic sensed and trigger function is nowadays needed in human life since the used of automatic technologies nowadays is getting more common. The developing of this automatic suction of electric vacuum cleaner will definitely help in conserve the energy and consequently help to reduce amount to pay on electric bills every month.
