Whether you just like the idea of letting a robot handle cleaning up your floors or you just don’t like to vacuum, a robot vacuum cleaner can be a real help. But with so many companies making robot vacuums, how do you know if any of them are actually worth the money? Here are a few favorite robot vacuums ranked in order:
1. iRobot Roomba i7+
Ranked as number because the iRobot Roomba i7+ is the first robot vacuum that can empty itself. A vacuum in the charging base suctions everything out of the bin into a sealable bag. That means you don’t have to see, touch, or smell what your robot vacuum picks up. The the i7+ has features that allow you issue voice commands. It can also make virtual maps and keep track of cleaning cycles and can be instructed to stay out of specific rooms.
2. Eufy Robovac 11S
This robot vacuum does its predecessors (Robovac 11 and Robovac 30c) proud, offering excellent, strong suction and improved navigation. The slimmer redesign of the 11S allows its brushes into more places, which means less dirt for you to clean up later. The Eufy Robovac 11S is also very quiet as it operates.
3. Neato Botvac Connected
The brains and brawn are in the Neato Botvac Connected. More than just the navigation system that allows the Neato to locate and clean up dirt, it can also be controlled via an app on your phone remotely. Using the app you can set up cleaning schedules, even more you can directly control the Neato Botvac Connected like a remote control car.
4. Neato Botvac Connected D7
This vacuum stands out among the other robot vacuums. It is considered the first vacuum that can be controlled completed via your mobile phone. The D7 creates a virtual map of your home and you can program when, where and how to clean those rooms. You can even draw a virtual line which can denote no-go zones and prevent the D7 from entering those rooms.
5. Ecovacs Deebot Ozmo 930
You can create virtual no-go lines so that the 930 knows not to cross. However, the opposite is also true for this robot vacuum. With just a single swipe of your finger, your app enabled smartphone tells the 930 to go over certain areas multiple times. A feature that works extremely well for those high-traffic areas in your home.
6. Eufy RoboVac L70 Hybrid
This model has laser navigation and forward-facing sensors so it can navigate the most cramped areas in your rooms with ease. It also has next generation technology, that utilizes an app, that will generate a digital map of your home, where you can then denote areas as no-go zones or priority zones and the Eufy will either completely avoid these areas or focus heavily on them, depending on the designation.
