Robot vacuums have been on the market for almost two decades, and robovacs make up for 20 percent of the worldwide vacuum market. And with our busy lives today, these devices now serve as an essential appliance in our households.
These little machines range from $100 to more than $1000 that is why it is important to decide before buying if you’re looking for a simple device to clean your floors or a heavy-duty machinery that would not just take out the dust.
Other factors to consider in choosing your next robot vacuum are performance, convenience, warranty, accessories and of course, value for money.
To further help, here is a buying guide for the best robot vacuum for your home:
- Neato Botvac Connected – Costs $700 and named as the best-performing robot vacuum in the market. This robot vacuum comes with the new Neato app for your smartphone that allows you to control the device, and comes with a lot of other features. It carries the same design of other existing Botvac models, with changes to its color scheme. It stays true to the Botvac brand, to go around the room and tidy up the edges and then use its laser navigation to sweep back and forth across the room while dodging your furniture and automatically return to its docking station when finished.
- iRobot Roomba 880 – At $600-$700, the iRobot Roomba 880 introduces a new way of cleaning with it AeroForce system, a brushless technology that removes litter better than its previous models and keeps maintenance to minimum. It is the most well-rounded and capable bot in its range so far.
- Dyson 360 Eye – The most expensive in this trio at $1000, the Dyson 360 Eye holds its own as one of the best robovacs in the market. The 360 Eye relies on infrared sensors and a 360-degree SD camera that is placed on the top of the vacuum to check its surroundings. Because of this, the 360 Eye’s vision plays a large impact on its ability to clean. The only downside is that it carries a hefty price tag of $1000.
Sure, each robot vacuums offer more than its competitors but the best robot vacuum would be the one that will be most efficient in your household.
