Virtual No-Go Lines Come to Botvac D5 Connected, Making It Smarter Than Ever Before

Here at Neato Robotics, we are committed to constantly improving the Neato cleaning experience for our valued, existing customers. As part of this, we work to regularly introduce new features to current users and provide a more intelligent and efficient cleaning experience. So, today we are releasing new robot software making Neato’s signature No-Go Lines available on the Botvac D5 Connected model.  Whether you bought your Neato robot vacuum today, or purchased it years ago, you’ll receive this amazing feature that was originally introduced exclusively for our top of the line Botvac D7 Connected model.

Botvac D5 Connected

Available via a quick and simple software update, virtual No-Go Lines put you in control so your robot cleans the areas you want, and more importantly, doesn’t go to areas you designate as “no-go”.  Worried about pet bowls, a pile of toys, or the holiday decorations you just set out around the house getting in the way of Neato’s cleaning cycle? No problem – with just a few swipes on the floorplan map in your Neato app, you can block off areas where the robot shouldn’t go and feel a whole new level of freedom and flexibility in programming your robot. Achieve a more convenient and careful clean every day thanks to this new feature.  

 

Current users of the Botvac D5 Connected can follow the below tips to access the new feature.

 

  • Ensure you have the latest version of the Neato app – version 2.7.0.
  • On the home screen of the app, you will receive notification to download a software update for your robot – version 4.3.0.
  • Once software is updated, be sure to run your robot to create a floorplan for your home. This is necessary in order to use No-Go Lines. Full instructions for setting up No-Go Lines – https://support.neatorobotics.com/hc/en-us/articles/360009513113-How-do-I-create-a-floor-plan-

In addition to No-Go Lines, this update will give D5 owners access to Multiple Floor Plans, Eco/Turbo Modes and Quick Boost charging features:

 

  • If you have a multi-story home, you’ll love the multiple floor plan feature. It lets you create up to three floor plans so you can add No-Go Lines on each story for a personalised cleaning experience.
  • Eco mode is great for everyday cleaning and Turbo mode provides a more powerful clean.
  • If needed, now your robot can top off its battery mid-clean with just enough charge to finish the job with Quick Boost Charging.1 No need to wait for a full charge when there’s only one room left to clean. Neato now knows your floor plan and can complete the job in the most efficient way possible.

Software version 4.3.0 begins rolling out to Botvac D5 Connected owners today, bringing more value and personalisation to your cleaning experience. The roll out of robot software version 4.3.0 to Botvac D5 Connected is expected to be completed by the weekend. Later this Fall, Botvac D3 Connected owners will also receive a software update to enable No-Go Lines.
