3. Roomba by IRobot

You will know Roomba because it’s been around since 2002. Over the past 19 years, numerous improvements have been made to this vacuum. The new s9+ model comes with an app that’s been redesigned to improve cleaning customisation and maps. Roomba intelligently maps your entire house with navigation technology. You can tell the s9+ the exact spots you want to be cleaned and when, and the 3D mapping makes corners that are hard to reach easier to clean. With ‘Keep out zones’ that you can customise, you tell your Roomba Robot to avoid certain objects and areas.

If you spill food by accident or have crumbs around the table after breakfast with your kids, the solution is as easy as shouting “Alexa, tell Roomba to clean under the dinner table”.

No need to lift a finger with Roomba, it cleans up after itself when it is done cleaning after you. While cleaning your floors, Roomba can recall areas that need extra attention, and it can connect itself to its charging station and continue cleaning where it left off once the battery is recharged. Isn’t that amazing? Roomba also comes with automatic disposal that allows self-emptying for up to 60 days.

Pros
  • Google Assistant and Alexa compatibility

  • Smart navigation system

  • Self-cleaning

Cons
  • Loud
