Product Expert robot vacuums

The iRobot Roomba 980 vacuums up to 185 square meters on 1 battery charge and lasts longer than most other Roomba robot vacuums. If the battery is empty while the robot isn't yet done with the cleaning program, it'll recharge and continue again when the battery is full. You can connect the robot to your phone via an app. You can configure the robot and keep an eye on the progress, wherever you are. Has the robot encountered a carpet or rug? The turbo mode automatically switches on. If you have large rooms in your house, prefer to control the robot via your mobile phone, and want a top-notch robot vacuum, then this is a good choice for you.

  • Pros:
    Handles high carpets
  • Con:
    Noisy
  • Con:
    Schedule

Like: * you will be amazed by the quantity of dust taken each day. Never had to swipe or vacuum again. Very nice to delegate this ... * you will get a confirmation on your mobile when it finished or if there is an error. In fact, you can easily control it from your mobile; Dislike: * noise. Left it to run during the night and I could hear it from up stairs; * the schedule is not very flexible. You can start it once per day (ok), but you can only choose a sningle program to always run: auto, single-pass and double-pass. There are days when I need the room to be cleanned more thoroughly than in the other days. It's a waste to always run it in double-pass with thoroughly mode; * if it "learns" you room during the day, it will stop during the night. Or if it gets dark during the run, it stops ... is afraid of the dark, I guess; * it may affect the alarm. If you let it run when you are not at home and the alarm is on, its heat-footprint is big enough to trigger the motion sensors;
