Smart home tech is designed to make your life easier, and  one such invention is the robot vacuum cleaner. These independent vacuum cleaners range from affordable devices that’ll keep your floors looking neat, to sophisticated voice-controlled robovacs that can navigate around your home and avoid obstacles. Overall, they’re designed to minimise your workload when it comes to cleaning, and perform general upkeep around your home with little intervention. 

The right robot vacuum will capture all the surface ‘fluff’ and leave your home feeling deep cleaned. Forget the standard vacuums, robot vacuums can automatically find their way back home (well, to their charging docks) whenever they need a top-up, then resume cleaning from where they left off in case there's a job half done. Some advanced bots can also assess the type of flooring they're on to then automatically increase suction if they're on a carpet or rug. Some can even mop for squeaky clean floors with minimal assistance. Heck, you can even get a bot that empties its own bin!

While robot vacuum cleaners are designed to suck tiny specks of dust and debris off your floor, the traditional round shape of the bots means corners can be missed. Even then, for everyday use or general upkeep of your home, these are timesavers and an amazing investment.

If you’d like a robot vacuum to help you out around the house but you’re not sure which one to buy, Ecovacs is a well-reviewed brand. Our colleagues over at TechRadar have tested a few models over the years and have only good things to say about them. So if you can get one on a discount, we'd couldn't recommend the brand highly enough.
