Anywhere/anytime mobile app, legendary navigation and superior cleaning power distinguish new Neato Botvac Connected
Newark, CA—September 1, 2015—Neato Robotics today announced the Neato Botvac™ Connected robot vacuum, calling the new Wi-Fi enabled model the best cleaning robot the company has ever designed.
In addition to enhanced features that maximize the robot’s ability to quickly and thoroughly pick up debris on both carpet and hardwood floors, Botvac Connected can be operated right from the users’ Apple or Android smartphone, using an easy to use mobile app to start, stop, schedule and monitor the vacuuming run.

“Picture this: you’re at work when you learn that unexpected company is on the way to your house,” said Nancy Nunziati, Neato’s vice president of marketing. “You grab your smartphone, access the Neato app and with a couple of taps your Neato robot immediately starts cleaning. Your floors – at least – are clean when your guests arrive.”
According to Neato, Botvac Connected cleans twice the area in the same amount of time and has twice the airflow of competitors. And when cleaning carpet, Neato picks up 50% more fine dust and cleans four times closer to walls.
“Add to this our unique laser-guided navigation and the ability to vacuum your home right from your smartphone and it’s easy to see why Botvac Connected is setting a new standard for robot vacuums,” said Giacomo Marini, Neato’s chairman and chief executive officer.
The new Botvac Connected features:
All Neato robots use the company’s patented Neato Botvision™ technology that combines laser scanning, continuous room mapping and real time object detection to plan the most efficient course to clean a home. This means Neato alters its navigation instantly when a new obstacle enters its path. It can work in the dark, moves from room to room, and knows when to return to its base for recharging — and then automatically goes back to the exact spot where it left off to finish the job. Unlike round robot vacuums that randomly bounce around a room, Neato moves in a methodical, straight-line path.
Neato’s advanced SpinFlow™ Power Clean system combines powerful suction and precision brushes to clean all types of floors. Neato’s unique D-shape and patented CornerClever™ technology means Neato moves deftly into corners. With the largest brushes and dirt bins on the market, Neato covers more square footage and picks up more debris than any other robot vacuum.
Botvac Connected is part of the well-regarded Neato Botvac™ Series of robot vacuums. Along with the popular Neato XV™ Series, the robots are available at all major online and brick and mortar retail partners. Botvac Connected will be available starting in the fourth quarter of 2015, with a suggested retail price of $699.
