The Ultimate Smart Home Device iRobot Roomba 690

After having had the iRobot Roomba 690 for about a month now I am quite impressed. It's shocking the things it can pick up. From wood chips to cat litter it can pick up some impressively difficult things. I love not having to walk on litter anymore.

The Roomba 690 is super easy to use and even though it takes a couple hours to clean it's not very intrusive unless its right near you. Sometimes when it's in other rooms you wonder if it's still running it's so quite.

Although there are a lot of complaints about it not making it home I find that it's quite reliable. There have been a few occasions where its gotten stuck or ran out of battery but its usually pretty good. I think the weirdest thing is that it will tell you it's done cleaning but still spends a long time on its way back to its base.

This vacuum does require a little bit of maintenance. I like to empty the vacuum every day and am impressed by how much it picks up. I keep a ziplock bag near its base and just dump the waste in and seal it up.  It also requires frequent brush cleaning. At least if you have pet hair. It's not particularly difficult, but I find none of the tools work better than just pulling it out with my fingers.

I can't believe I waited so long to get one of these. It keeps my home cleaner and less dusty, it's less bothersome than vacuuming and it cleans under furniture.

  4. The newest model (980) uses a camera to actually map the area it's cleaning, so I'll assuming you're addressing every other model. We already own a Roomba 650, and love it. TRADEINN

  5. Keeping a clean and organized home is not difficult. It does however require a fair amount of commitment and consistency. A dirty home if left to fester soon becomes very difficult to clean. Before long you aren't inviting friends over and at the end of a long day you are starting to dread the journey home. Maid Service
