Choosing the perfect robotic vacuum for your home
- Ensure the product has an extended battery life
Most traditional vacuums are plugged into an outlet and can run for extended periods of time without interruption, however, autonomous vacuums have their own battery and it can often be drained quickly as a result of a busy cleaning schedule.
- Check product reviews thoroughly
In the age of home automation technology, many technology review outlets such as pcmag.com and CNET have reviewed many robot manufacturers and have told consumers which products are the best in the industry. It is important to read product reviews by trusted media outlets and then choose which product to purchase.
- Inspect the design
Autonomous vacuums can often have a hard time squeezing into tight corners and can often miss out on cleaning key areas that accumulate large amounts of debris such as pet hair and other dirt and grime. A well-rounded robotic vacuum must be designed in a way that it can access hard to reach areas. In addition, some robots are designed to combat certain messes with ease including the vacuuming of pet hair. A vacuum that is designed to adhere to the needs of the owner is a must buy.
- Make sure it comes with navigation tools
Lidar technology uses lasers to map the layout of homes and the obstacles that are within them. Robots that are equipped with lidar technology understand the layout of your home and can avoid getting stuck or damaged during the vacuuming process. Some robots can easily get into trouble and be stuck on furniture or fall down stairs if lidar technology isn’t implemented in their design.
