Welcome to the Future
It’s happened, you can now have a robot take care of your home…well, at least your vacuuming.
Until now, robot vacuums have been a little gimmicky, not really covering whole rooms, and lacking power. Well the future has now arrived, but does it suck?
View the video below for a quick overview of the Neato Botvac Connected Wi-Fi Robot Vacuum:
Is this Novelty or Luxury?
Luxury, definitely luxury.
After trying a robot vacuum for a few days, you’ll never want to go back to the old days.
Here just some of the reasons to give a robot vacuum a try:
- It’s fun. It really is enjoyable
- You’ll be able to get more done (Amazing how much time vacuuming the old way really took)
- You’ll have your own robot friend. You can name him (or her)
- Your kids will keep their floor picked up so the vacuum can enter (they love watching it)
- It can clean carpets, rugs, and hard floors–no need to change any accessories
- It’s quieter than a normal vacuum, and since you don’t have to be right next to it when cleaning, it seems even more quiet
Why the Neato?
The Neato Connected is priced competitively compared to other robot vacuums of the same caliber which go for upwards of $1,000.
Neato’s Laser-Guided Cleaning
The Neato has a laser guidance system which helps it map out a room and not have to bump into everything just to discover something is there. Watch it come close to a wall or furniture leg, and it will slow down, then adeptly maneuver around the obstacle. Sometimes it will bump, but it’s pretty gentle.
The laser helps it map and detect, and then the Neato Botvac will canvas the room much like a cute little lawn mower.
The laser is not a distraction–not part of the visible spectrum of lasers.
This system helps it cover a room better than other robot vacuums that simply bump their way around until they think the room is covered.
The Unique D-Shape
The Neato’s D-Shape construction means that it can get into corners better than robot vacuums that are circular.
A Robot Vacuum that is Super Easy to Clean
It’s a whole lot easier to clean than a traditional vacuum. There’s no crazy cover plate that you have to unlock, you simply snap it off, and remove the roller. It makes cleaning a cinch.
The Neato’s dust bin collector is also easier to remove than most robot vacuums. Most robot vacuums make you remove the back part of the robot leaving dust and debris in the process. The Neato’s debris collector lifts up from the top, helping to keep the mess inside the container.
The Side Brush for Hard to Reach Areas
The Neato has a rotating side brush with helps it clean right up against walls and tight places. The brush is connected magnetically and can be removed for easy cleaning.
Included Accessories with the Neato Botvac Connected
An easy to use and store magnetic boundary marker comes with the Neato Connected Robot. Simply unroll the strip and place it where you want the Botvac to avoid. It also has extra filters and a brush cleaning tool that comes in very handy (every vacuum should come with one).
App Enabled and Controlled Vacuum
Use the free app on your cellphone (Android or iPhone) to start the vacuum, control it, send it back to its charging station, or see the stats of your hard-at-work vacuum.
But Does this Vacuum Suck?
Yes. Yes it does. In the best way possible.
You’ll be surprised at the amount of debris and dust from carpet and floors that this little robot can pickup.
Try the Neato Botvac and you’ll be singing your way to cleaner floors in no time.
