Discover the Freedom of a Robot Vacuum
Spend More Time with Family and Less Time Cleaning
Robot vacuums are self-propelled and programmable, so you can vacuum any time of the day or night. Perfect for busy lifestyles, a robot vacuum can set you free from the drudgery of housework and allow you to spend more time with family and friends.
Make Floor Care a Breeze
Robot vacuums are easy to use and operate on your schedule. Just program the area you want vacuumed and the unit does the rest. It's easy to keep your home clean, even if you aren't able to push an upright vacuum or pull a canister vacuum. A robot vacuum is light and easy to move from room to room or floor to floor, and you won't need to wrangle hoses or lift heavy units.
Get All of Your Floors Clean
Robot vacuums can sense obstacles, avoid stairs and even clean underneath furniture for full-room cleaning. Most will travel from carpet to hard surfaces, and some even feature a wet mopping capability. With a robot vacuum, the days of moving heavy furniture to get the whole room clean are over.
Features and Technology
Robot vacuums feature a range of different technologies to meet your cleaning needs. Here are a few things to consider as you choose which vacuum is best for you.
Some robot vacuums create the most efficient cleaning path by using a navigation system to map the room, maximizing cleaning time. A room-by-room navigation feature will send the vacuum into multiple rooms without interruption, so you can set it and forget it.
Most robot vacuums can pause in their mapped cleaning path when they need to recharge. The vacuum will travel to the docking station, recharge, then return to the place it left off to continue cleaning.Shop robot vacuums with auto-docking capabilities
Available on some models of robot vacuums, a preset scheduling system allows you to set when your vacuum cleans, so that you can make sure it's the most convenient time for your family and pets.
Most robot vacuums feature transitioning technology that detects carpet and hard floor surfaces like tile, hardwood and laminate, and adapts to clean each one by adjusting both its route and its suction.
Obstacle Detection and Avoidance
Since most people won't empty their rooms before vacuuming, many robot vacuums will sense and avoid objects. Each brand's technology may carry its own name like "Laser Smart" or "FullView sensor," "iAdapt" and more, but they all enable the vacuum to sense its environment and avoid tricky areas like stairs and large pieces of furniture.
Some robot vacuum models are Wi-Fi–enabled, so you can control them with an app that you install on a compatible mobile device. Then you can use your smartphone or tablet as a remote control for your vacuum, choosing the rooms you want to clean. You can start, stop, pause, schedule and even receive notifications from your robot vacuum when you're away from home.
