There are many robovacs on the market that claim to pack in all sorts of unique features. However, when you get right down to it, many of them are the same and honestly, quite boring.
Before buying a robot vacuum, you'll need to know just what features you're going for. Do you want just a vacuum? Have pets to worry about? Want to mop as well? Thankfully there are plenty of options out there, we've even got one that will empty itself!
Take a peek below, so you know just what you're getting with these remarkable robots. These are some of the best, truly unique, genuinely feature-packed robot vacuums we've come across this year.
The name you know and love has one of the best mid-range vacs you'll find. Easily control the Roomba 690 from its companion smartphone app. It also works with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant, meaning you can issue voice commands, so you literally don't have to lift a finger.
This one includes a virtual wall barrier to help control where the vacuum goes, and it runs for up to 90 minutes before it needs a recharge.
With 10x the suction of previous models. the Roomba 980 docks and recharges itself, and even uses Smart Mapping technology to map out your house. The 3-stage cleaning system is great for homes with pets as the filter traps almost all cat and dog allergens.
Using the Roomba app, you can control, schedule and maintain your robovac with little effort.
If you really want to go all-in on a robot cleaning solution, this one really takes the cake. Not only does it have wonderful cleaning power, obstacle avoidance, and a robust mobile app, but you can also mop with just the tap of a button. But wait, that's not all.
The S7 MaxV Ultra also sports an auto-emptying dock that works for both the vacuum and mop – meaning much less maintenance for you and much cleaner floors as well. Yes, it's pricey, but it's worth it many times over.
The DEEBOT N79S runs for about 1.7 hours on a charge and includes a three-stage cleaning system: brush rollers, an edge brush, and vacuum suction. You won't find many vacs that can run for this long without a refresh, and with a great budget price, you're getting a ton of bang for your buck.
The eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 15c uses BoostIQ Technology to automatically adjust suction power when extra vacuuming strength is needed to get the best clean. It's one of the slimmest robot vacuums available, so if you have tons of low furniture, look no further.
The anti-scratch top keeps it looking new, and it even sports a remote control if phone apps aren't you think. Voice control comes along for the ride as well.
The Neato unique D7's D-shaped design lets it get into corners better. It uses laser-guided mapping and can be customized to pay extra attention to certain areas. It works on carpets, hardwood and tile, so it can run from one room to the next without issue.
Easily customize by adding no-go lines, multiple floor maps and zone cleaning for that extra vacuum love. It'll go for up to 150 minutes on a charge as well.
The smart ECOVACS DEEBOT OZMO 601 has 120 minutes of run time and will automatically return to its charger when it runs low on battery. It's pretty basic, but it also won't leave you shelling out a ton of cash for a good clean. It's compatible with Google and Alexa, and can tackle your carpet, hardwood and tile with ease.
