Robot Vacuums

Let the smart tech do the work

Vacuuming has to be one of the most unpopular household chores. No one wants to do it, but everyone loves a clean and dust-free home. A robotic vacuum cleaner takes all the hassle out of cleaning, leaving you more time for other activities!


How does a Robot Vacuum work?

Smart robotic vacuum cleaners are usually small and in a round or D shape. Their design means they can reach all the difficult to hit areas that you might usually avoid while cleaning, such as under chairs and couches.

Side brushes sweep the dust and dirt into the center of the device where they are sucked up into the container which, when full, can be easily emptied into the nearest trash can. Many smart robotic cleaners also include a mop function to transform your robot vacuum into a robot mop.

You can control the smart vacuum using an app from your smartphone or through voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant. Robotic vacuums navigate around your home in a variety of ways. Our homes are essentially an obstacle course for a smart robotic vacuum. They use clever sensors to make their way around chair legs, tables, couches, and stray items. These sensors allow it to easily steer through any obstructions. There are a few different types of sensors.

Anti-collision sensors: Anti-collision sensors combine with soft exterior bumpers to protect your furniture while the smart vacuum is cleaning. The sensors mean the device knows exactly where to stop to navigate around your furniture with ease.

Anti-drop sensors: Anti-drop sensors mean your device knows when there is a cliff ahead, so it won’t fall down any steps or stairs.

Mapping sensors: Mapping sensors create a map of your home in order to plan it’s cleaning route. With some devices, you can use this map to mark off ‘no-go’ areas that you don’t want the Smart robot vacuum to clean.

Adaptive floor sensors: Floor sensors detect what surface the robot vacuum is on to adjust cleaning settings for the most efficient cleaning.

Other features

Smart charging

The smart devices return to their charging dock then they’re running out of juice so they’ll never die in the middle of their job.

Schedule cleaning around your life

Schedule your smart device using your smartphone or voice assistant to clean your floors while you’re out or in another room so you can come home to a nice clean house.

Why a smart vacuum over a traditional style vacuum?

Save time

Your smart vacuum will independently clean your home, leaving you time for other things. Schedule it to clean while you’re away from home and you’ll always come home to a clean house.

Reach hard to clean areas

The small design and shape mean a smart robot vacuum can go under couches and reach all those hard to clean areas that you might avoid while traditionally vacuuming.

Easy to empty

You won’t have to struggle with a full vacuum bag again, smart robotic vacuums collect dirt and debris into a dustpan that’s easily emptied into a trash can when full.

What to look out for in a smart robotic vacuum

Battery life

How long does the device work off a single charge? Does the device automatically return to its charging station?

Size of the container

Check what size the collection chamber is to get an idea of how often it would need to be emptied.

Noise levels

Most smart vacuums are much quieter than traditional vacuum cleaners, but it’s a good idea to check out the noise levels to see what level is okay for you.


Do you want your vacuum cleaner to be able to get under your couches and chairs? Make sure the device is the right size.

HEPA Filter

Do you have allergies? Check if the smart vacuum has a HEPA filter that will filter out allergens.
