Bringing High-Tech HOME: Understanding Robot Vacuums

The key to a smart, tidy home is to pick the right kit: the tools and gadgets that will make your life easier and more efficient, and get you out of the chores and into things that really need your individual attention. The robot vacuum has been a huge boon in that regard.

Unveiling the Best Robot Vacuums for 2024

Starting from floor mapping, to battery life, and ending with the cleaning performance, we have chosen our best vacuums for 2024.

Roomba j7+: A Clear Front-Runner

On the other end of the spectrum, the Roomba j7+ is a pet-friendly, self-emptying model with a large dustbin that has the versatility and simplicity to become part of the household and be attached to the heart.

Dreame X30 Ultra: The Ultimate 2-in-1 Machine

With a child and pets running around the house, the Dreame is perfect and really works: it vacuumed and mopped, had obstacle avoidance and a quiet auto-empty system. Really cool.

Yeedi M12 Pro+: Affordable Efficiency

The M12 Pro+ by Yeedi is a machine that you might expect to cost twice as much, with suction as powerful as a Dyson and a built-in vacuum-mop that’s worth it on its own. This is the vacuum-mop that you should be coveting. The Yeedi M12 Pro+ vacuum-mop is available now for £399.

Roomba s9+: Sophistication and Power

And it’s a testament to the legacy of Roomba that its latest model, the s9+ (£989.99), brings more raw power and brains to the job in a design that guarantees a more thorough vacuuming of your corners along with enough suction power to deal happily with pet hair and the like. And its ability to learn your home and changes in the layout of your home? That’s the pinnacle we aspire to in vacuum technology.

Shark ION AV751: Simple, Effective, and Budget-Friendly

This is a classic buy-it-and-forget-about-it choice for those who desire the benefits of robotic vacuuming without all the bells and whistles. Its straightforward, effective workmanship should be a good fit for those who don’t fuss with their home cleaning devices and expect appliances to simply work without much concern.

Deciding on the Perfect Robot Vacuum

While a robot vacuum will work in almost any home, there are a few key factors to consider before buying one: what kind of flooring is in your house, how much automation you want it to do (and how much you’re willing to pay for that automation), and what extra features matter to you, such as super-smart mapping, long battery life and connectivity. There is a robot vacuum for every home.

In-Home Testing: The ZDNET Approach

Once designs are completed, we take our ratings beyond the lab to bring these robot vacuums into real life. This allows us to test each robo-hoover’s ability to perform in the real world, from navigating around your pet’s toys to cleaning up after long days in the family home.

Embracing the Future of Cleaning

Deep cleaning had finally arrived. Dual-function (vacuuming and mopping) robots, like their one-trick predecessors, are in the business of emptying and wiping themselves out of existence. Today’s most advanced models promise to shrink the burdens of household drudgery, integrating themselves into your daily life and leaving it – and your floors – cleaner than ever.

What is HOME?

Home is not just a space; it’s where life occurs and thrives, where stories are told and shared, where life’s seasons are welcomed and cherished. Slowly, in a world with ever more obligations and activities, we build it up as a sanctuary, keeping it as bucolic as possible. A robot vacuum is not just a creation of technology: it’s evidence that humans are devoting more and more time to perfecting the quality of home life, and buying us the time to spend more time doing things besides vacuuming. And, as we continue to wander through this hazy and exciting new world of home automation, let us continue to patronise those products that help our homes become more than just spaces with vacuums – let us continue to patronise products that help us make houses homes again, and lives with life and love.
