Finding the best robot vacuum that can pick up your dog’s embedded fur isn’t easy. It should have enough suction power and be able to clean without getting jammed.
In that regard, the iRobot Roomba 675 is the perfect bot for this application. Featuring dual multi-surface brushes and a 3-stage cleaning system, it can pick up every dirt including pet hair.
The first thing you’ll notice about the iRobot Roomba 675 is its striking design. Its color scheme comprises a matte grey plastic for the sides and a glossy black top. Thus, it will blend in nicely with the rest of your house decor.
Aesthetics aside, this bot doesn’t disappoint when it comes to performance. It employs a patented 3-stage cleaning mechanism to ensure your house is spotless. The dual multi-brushes that it’s equipped with are designed to pick up both small and large dust particles.
We particularly like the bot’s “Dirt Detect” feature that identifies the dirtiest spots in your home and cleans these areas more thoroughly.
Another feature you’re sure to love about this robot vacuum is that it supports voice commands. Don’t feel like getting up or using the app? Just issue a command- be it to start, pause, resume or stop- using Alexa, IFTTT or Google Assistant, and the vacuum will do as you ask.
The best part is, you can even use the voice command technology to find your Roomba 675 if it gets lost within your home. Once you ask Alexa to locate it, the bot emits a series of four tones to help you spot it.
Do you often forget to clean your home because you have a busy schedule? If you answered “yes”, you’ll be pleased to learn about the Roomba’s scheduled cleaning feature. Through the app, you can select the specific days of the week, and time that the bot can clean your home.
Ease of use
This is another area where the Roomba 675 truly shines. It has a user-friendly design, making it easy to navigate.
In the middle of the vacuum’s lid, you’ll see three large and clearly labeled buttons that read: Clean, Spot and Dock. This way, you can choose which function you’re interested in right off the bat.
The handle is another welcome addition. Given that it weighs a massive 7.8 pounds, the robot vacuum would be pretty heavy to carry without the handle.
If you want to operate the vacuum remotely, syncing it to the iRobot Home app is pretty straightforward. The robot’s home screen displays one big “Clean” icon, enabling you to activate this feature within seconds.
On the bottom of the screen, you’ll see other essential features like cleaning history, scheduling, help and settings. Once you set up the app, you will also be able to start, resume, pause and dock your robot vacuum with the click of a button.
For the price, the Roomba 675 offers a decent battery life. Equipped with an 1800 mAh lithium ion battery, the bot is rated as having a run time of 1 ½ hours.
But based on our tests, the battery can last for up to 2 hours on a single charge. Better yet, it only takes 2 hours to charge, which is relatively faster than other robot vacuums.
The iRobot Roomba 675 not only displays a stellar performance but it’s affordable too. It’s very similar to its cousin, the Roomba 614. However, the 675 has more advanced features like Wi-Fi connectivity that allows you to control the bot remotely using an app.
Overall, you’ll be getting great value for your investment. With technologies like “Dirt Detect” and the freedom to schedule cleaning in advance, you won’t regret purchasing this device.
iRobot Roomba 675 is best suited for pet owners. It has ample suction power to pick up all kinds of dirt. It’s also simple to set up, both manually and in terms of syncing it to the iRobot Home app. And it has a lovely design that will complement your contemporary-themed home beautifully.
