  • The robot vacuum cleaner can have trouble with extremely dark floors.
Product Expert robot vacuums

Description

The Neato Botvac D4 Connected is better able to reach corners than other round robot vacuums. This is because the front is flat and the suction brush with rotating brush is placed further forward. This way, it'll reach dirt in corners and along baseboards better. You can control this robot via the app on your phone. You can also easily draw a virtual wall if you don't want the robot to enter certain areas. If your toddler is playing on a large playmat, for example. Did the robot vacuum drive on the carpet? Then switch on the turbo mode via the app. After 75 minutes, the battery is empty and the robot will drive itself back to the charging dock.

    Fantastic addition to the household

    Sandy | 13 August 2019 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Handy app
    • Fits under our sofa and cabinets
    • No spinning brushes
    • Comes in all corners
    • Easy to install
    • Occasionally gets stuck on low setting (whine)
    • Collection container could be a little bigger (nag)

    Every time we empty the bin we are amazed at where the Neato got the mess from. And we always think that our house is 'clean'.. We have only had the Neato for a week but we are so happy with it! Due to the presence of a dog, we no longer have to pick up the vacuum cleaner ourselves every day. What a relief to come home after work to a hair and dust free house! He is definitely worth the money!
    The negatives are actually to nag. On a lighter suction setting it will occasionally get stuck under the cabinets (just set it to a harder suction setting and it won't get stuck). In addition, the collection container could be slightly larger (but what is the trouble of emptying it daily?).

    Haven't regretted it for a moment!!!

    • It also gets into corners because of the straight side
    • Easy to install
    • Works with app. You also get an overview of where the vacuum cleaner has been per cleaning.
    • Small container, must be emptied after each round.

    I bought this vacuum cleaner after I looked and compared a lot. This brand also comes out on top in the Consumers' Association test. That's why I made the choice of the brand. After comparing different versions, I came up with this one.

    This topper is the most valued member of our family.
    • Easy to operate
    • Cleans well
    • Can't operate in case of loss of WiFi

    Billy (You can name your new roommate yourself) does a great job. Occasionally he gets stuck, but he seems to learn from this. Billy avoids a lot of nagging at home, since I now regularly vacuum and my girlfriend doesn't have much to complain about.

    Highly recommended for people with pets
    • Takes all dog hair
    • Quiet
    • Floor plan is very useful
    • Vacuum cleaner goes to work linear instead of diagonal

    With 2 border collies in the house, he takes all the hair with him! Definitely recommended with pets.
    It takes about 45 minutes to cover 45 m2.
    The reservoir is just big enough for our house (we're only doing the ground floor).
    He works at night so is quiet, we don't hear him from the bedroom. Easy to set up via the app, if it is stuck, for example, between a chair, we immediately receive a notification.
    Only positive points.

    It's okay to be lazy sometimes!
    • Cleans very well
    • Easy to maintain
    • App is easy
    • Easy to set
    • New technology
    • Also sucks up small things
    • Doesn't know own height
    • Empty the receptacle often

    TL;DR:
    Fantastic product! Robot is specific and does a very good job.
    Easy to maintain and easy to keep track of via the app due to no-go lines and a map.
    Very happy with it!

    Before I start, let me make it clear that thanks to Reviewclub I was able to test this great product.

    In order to write an accurate review I will first tell you a little about me and my house.
    I live with my girlfriend and two cats; an Egyptian Mau (short-haired) and a Ragdoll (long-haired). I am still a student and my girlfriend is working. And now you're probably thinking, but why on earth is this important for the review? Well it's like this; Because we are both away a lot during the week, we have less time for the household, while our cats just shed their hair. Hair sometimes flies back and forth in tufts, and gets stuck in our rug that we have lying around. If, like me, you don't always have the time to vacuum more often during the week, this does pile up, so the vacuum cleaner robot is a fantastic addition. Sit back and enjoy my rollercoaster of emotions and details about this vacuum cleaner!

    wooo! The box is in! E X C I T E D !

    Before I could start vacuuming my house, I first had to connect the vacuum cleaner to my WiFi. In principle, there were no problems with that at all, although the robot had some trouble with my 5GHz network. That's why I switched to my 2.4GHz network after that and had no more problems. If you have a bit of a modern modem you can set your network for both GHz, so that's no problem.

    Once installed and given the robot a name (Lulu in our case), I was able to set up a floor plan. And I can already hear you say; “A floor plan? What is that?". NOW, a floor plan is crucial when setting up this vacuum cleaner. You want the vacuum cleaner to clean your house every day (or whenever you set it up) and not bump into everything. With a floor plan, the robot makes a kind of Layout of the room(s) in the house so that you can make a plan. Of course, Lulu can't reach everything, so no-go lines have to be set up. No go lines are very easy to set up. Lulu works very accurately thanks to the LaserSmart™ technology and distributes the map with dots. This way you can easily set where Lulu can and cannot go. You have to be careful at the beginning. I took a plank myself and put it in places every now and then so that the laser picked it up and Lulu realized she couldn't get past it. For example with my TV cabinet; it was just too high for the laser to pick up, but too low for Lulu to get through. That's how she got stuck every time. She also couldn't get over the legs of the dining room chairs. Furthermore, she knew everything herself, and the rug was no problem either! SHE EVEN COMES UNDER BANK! Once the floor plan and no-go lines were set, I scheduled her to do a round every day from 1:00 PM. This can be done on a somewhat softer setting (eco) or a powerful setting. I mainly used the powerful mode, because I think it worked better.

    Now that she makes a round every day, I have to make sure that her dust container and filter are emptied every day, because with two cats that shed a lot of hair, that is necessary, but this works great! You can easily clean the filter with the included comb. And every now and then you also clean the brush. Just make sure there are no cat toys or small objects on the floor! Lulu really liked this one too!

    The robot is very specific and does a very good job, and compared to other robots, it can get to a lot of places without difficulty. Yes, every now and then the back is a bit clumsy and she sometimes wants to hit the plinth, but that doesn't hinder the robot. Thresholds, rugs and floor differences are no problem for Lulu, she acts like it's nothing! It's also super funny when your robot is stuck, you get a message on your phone with; “Lulu: Help I'm stuck! Please come pick me up.”

    Anyway, we now know that the robot takes its work very seriously and does it very well. The house looks fantastically clean and a LOT LESS cat hair! That's very nice! But what about the battery and how to use the app? You know, it's not complicated at all. You don't really have to worry about the battery of the vacuum cleaner. If the vacuum feels low on energy (I tested it - sorry Lulu!), it will go to the charging dock on its own for a break, then charge it until it has enough energy to finish the round. So you don't have to pay attention to that either! You can just sit on the couch with your feet up while the robot cleans. It's okay to be lazy sometimes!
    And then there's the app.. Do I have to update the robot too? Eww technology! Well don't worry, the robot can just update itself because it is connected to your WiFi! You can see this when you open the App on your phone! And the app itself? It's very easy, that's something I don't worry about at all. It works well and fast.

    But DePemy, you are so positive! Are there no downsides?
    Look, all things have their good and bad points, and so does this robot vacuum cleaner.
    As I mentioned earlier, the robot likes to gobble up smaller things, which sometimes causes the brush to get stuck. Then you will receive a message on your phone and you can remedy this immediately. But also because the laser is under a kind of "lid", it sometimes does not fully realize the height. But also for this; a no-go line and it's solved again. The container is also a bit small, so you have to empty it regularly (I do it daily). But you will also receive a notification for this, and it might be nice to know that this container is larger than the average robot vacuum cleaner. Other than that, I don't have many complaints about this product. It works as it should and it helps you a lot with the household. What else do you want?

    All in all, I think it's a fantastic product! It cleans very well and you can easily keep track of everything via the phone. Wherever you are! I am sure you will be very happy with this too!

    Great machine, good cleaning quality.
    • connection with telephone
    • good suction quality
    • expensive
    • no software updates possible

    It's our second Neato, so why a second? The first is for the lower floor and the second is for the upper floor. We have a dog and like every (almost every dog) she loses hair. By using the robot we reduce our daily cleaning to once a week. The machine sucks well in the corners, and absorbs at least 95% of the hair and dirt, the collection has to be emptied every two days.
    The app provides information about what has been sucked, and you can indicate where the machine is not allowed to go. Formerly magnet strike, but now via the app. Works fine. So far I haven't ridden the stairs yet, so that's fine upstairs.

    A very good vacuum cleaner in use
    • Mapping laser room
    • Efficient cleaning pad
    • Programming virtual no-go area
    • Messy emptying / clearing the tray
    • Requires a smart device and app
    • It has no side brush

    An initial setup should be easy, but I did have a few minor issues. The controls and indicators are minimal. There is a single button that can be pressed in four locations along with the bumper. The device includes a battery indicator and one for connectivity. To set up the device, the app prompts you to put the device into pairing mode, creating a WiFi connection for your smart device. Since there wasn't much feedback, it took me several tries to get the button presses and timing right for the SSID to show up on my phone. Then the app lets you select your Wi-Fi network, but mine didn't show up on the list and had to be entered manually. This was not easy, but it finally worked. In the first days I did have the issue that the app lost the connection with the vacuum cleaner. You could reconnect every few minutes. After a few days I no longer had this problem.
    After I set up the device, I activated the first cleaning cycle, which cleans and maps the floor space. The Neato uses a combination of laser pulses and the occasional bumper impact to navigate around. Overall, it did a great job moving around space, cornering and avoiding obstacles. I was especially impressed that it stopped around the doors that jutted out. It is a low robot and will therefore also get under most furniture. The vacuuming is quieter than I expected which was a pleasant surprise. The cleaning path was efficient even without the map, with the device re-covering only a few areas. Picking up the dirt was done solidly, it had no problem crumbs, pet hair and other small items I accidentally left on the floor. It can also handle the cords of, among other things, the TV. The report said it took 42 minutes to clean our 45-square-foot ground floor and then return to the charging base. You can also set no-go limits from the digital map in the app. You can set as many as you want, which is handy because I don't want the vacuum cleaner to get under certain furniture and near places where it could get stuck. These no-go areas also reduce cleaning time a bit. The collection bin is not large, so if you are going to vacuum on a daily basis, it is advisable to empty it regularly. Emptying is a bit of a messy undertaking as a lot of hair and debris gets trapped in the pleated filter which must be removed to empty the bin. That's why I had to pull the debris out of the folds with my fingers or with a petty thief, which is a bit messier than I'd like for something that needs to be emptied daily. Long hairs also get tangled in the brush at the bottom. You also have to pull it off manually.
    The D4 is one of the entry-level models in my opinion, so it lacks a side brush that is used to push dirt from corners into the path of the main brush, a bigger battery and if I'm not mistaken a more luxurious brush on the bottom. In general, the Neato D4 Connected is a robot vacuum cleaner that will make you very happy in an average house. But those with larger homes and/or pets may want to consider one of Neato's higher spec models.

    Great device for when you have a just tidy house
    • Easy to install
    • Makes good school
    • Create/set floor plan (map)
    • Easy operation via app
    • Makes a little too much noise when you're at home
    • Dustbin is a bit small

    It is a nice robot vacuum cleaner.
    Easy to install to your WiFi.
    After that, a floor plan (map of your house) has to be made, but once done properly, it works orima.
    Unfortunately I have a household with a lot of toys and other clutter in the house (junk butt with clutter ass kods so it didn't really work for me.
    I would definitely recommend him if you have a clean and tidy house. Also easy to use. Empty the dust drawer often, but this is only a few seconds of work.
