Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro It can be controlled via app
When connected to the Wi-Fi, the robot can be controlled from anywhere with an internet connection, just by using the application. It's useful when unexpected guests are coming and the house needs to be cleaned remotely. The application includes many additional options, like, have the robot do two cleaning passes, have it clean extra carefully along the edges and walls, change the vacuum’s suction power, and others.
Pro It has a very good battery
On a single charge, it can work up to 2 hours. Unless you’re living in a big house with multiple bedrooms, one full charge should be enough to clean your entire home. It takes about 3 hours to fully charge the robot.
Pro It's highly autonomous
When the cleaner detects it is low on battery, it will find its way back to the docking station to recharge. After that, it will finish the initiated cleaning.
In a similar fashion, it will return to the station when the dustbin is full and wait for it to be emptied.
Pro It's very good at navigating the house
The robot moves intelligently, with the help of a camera and various location sensors. It maps out the environment during cleaning and then remembers it for the next cleaning session. It moves in patterns to better track the areas it has already cleaned, and it can detect spots that need more attention in terms of cleaning.
It also has restrictions, “virtual walls”, that create invisible boundaries for the robot to never cross. It prevents the cleaner from accidentally yanking wires or simply going to a place where it repeatedly gets stuck.
