Messy floors could be a pain to clean because you’ll most likely need a clunky vacuum or a heavy mop to get the job done. Thankfully though, there is an easier way to keep your home clean without the hassle: The Neato Botvac D4 Connected, a robot vacuum that has customized cleaning maps, powerful suction capabilities, and easily fits in tight spaces.
According to our sister site PCMag.com, the Neato Botvac D4 Connected is a high-tech cleaning solution if you want to keep your home free from allergens, crumbs, dust, mold, gross pet hair, and other nasty messes. At $498, the Neato Botvac D4 Connected isn’t cheap, but it delivers a powerful clean and offers customizable, smart-home friendly tidying that some conventional vacuums aren’t capable of doing. The Neato Botvac D4 Connected is available to buy on Amazon.
Unlike standard vacuums, the Neato Botvac D4 Connected features a compact D-shape, which enables it to fit in most nooks and crannies around your home. Its dimensions are 3.9 inches x 13.2 inches x 12.6 inches and it only weighs 7.4 pounds, so you won’t have to worry about getting a strength training workout if you need to gently pick it up.
Setting up the Neato Botvac D4 Connected is easy: First, download the Neato app for your Android or iOS smartphone, register for an account, and follow the directions to connect to your 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network, since the vacuum doesn’t work with 5GHz. What’s cool about this vacuum is that you can hook it up with your voice assistant via the Neato skill in the Amazon Alexa or Google Home app. Once this is done, you can issue commands to start/stop cleaning, check the vacuum’s battery level, and return the vacuum to its charging dock.
Convenience is one of the main perks of this robot vacuum: Using the Neato mobile app, you can see the battery level, go through cleaning options, and view cleaning maps and stats after the Neato Botvac D4 Connected completes a cleaning mission. From there, you can also schedule automatic cleanings, so you can binge-watch TV or hang out with loved ones and let it do the dirty work for you.
Cleaning-wise, the Neato Botvac D4 Connected has multiple benefits. It can map your home and give a mini summary of its cleaning tasks via the Neato app. Laser navigation makes it gently clean in a back and forth motion, while its powerful suction enables it to pick up a lot of dust, hair, and more debris. One downside is that the Neato can sometimes bump into furniture, but you can set up no-go boundary lines to help it avoid your dining room table or mountain of laundry.
