Neato Robotics has today announced a couple fo new connected robot vacuum cleaners at IFA 2016.
The vacuum cleaners have been named the Dotvac D3 and the Botvac D5.
The Botvac D5 is the more advanced version, it’s priced at £549, however, as the D3 is slightly less featured, it also has a lower price tag at £399.
Both of the cleaners feature Neato’s LaserSmart technology, which uses laser scanning, continuous room mapping and real-time object detection to plan out the most efficient cleaning course to vacuum your home.
They also both feature the D-shape design signature to Neato robot cleaners and they connect to the Neato app allowing users to control the devices from their smartphones, though the D5 will offer more functionality.
The D3 has a lithium-ion battery that is said to last up to 60 minutes, and a standard filter, with no display or side brushes to take advantage of, however, you can still control it via the app on smartphones, allowing you to start clean, spot clean and more.
The D5 is slightler larger, featuring a 120 munute battery life according to the company, as well as an ultra-performance filter.
The D5 Connected has a larger battery capacity than the D3 Connected, allowing for two 120-minute cycles with recharging inbetween. It also features side brushes to get into all those tricky corners and an ultra-performance filter is also on board to pick up dust particles of 3 microns.
The D5 is also able to show you cleaning stats such as the total area and time cleaned, as well as the last date and time that the robot did the cleaning.
The Neato Botvac D3 Connected and Botvac D5 Connected will be available n the US and Europe in early October.
