Wifi-enabled robot vacuum

Neato’s first wifi connected robot vacuum has arrived. Control the Botvac Connected using your smartphone. No need to be in the same room or even in the house. Like all Neato robots it uses LaserSmart™ technology to scan, map and navigate your home so it oesn't miss a spot.

Its D-shape design and side brush allows Botvac Connected to get deep into corners and close to walls, unlike round robots. And the ultra-performance vacuum filter captures dust and allergens too tiny to see.

Botvac Connected Details

The original Neato Botvac Connected is our first wifi connected robot vacuum. Using the Neato app youcan control the robot using your smartphone even if you are not at home. The Botvac Connected also gives you the option to use the controls located on the robot itself. Like all Neato robots it uses LaserSmart™ technology to scan, map and navigate your entire home, moving in a logical cleaning pattern, not randomly like other robots. Botvac Connected comes with two main brushes to choosefrom. The combo brush works well on all surfaces. But if your home has mostly carpet, the blade brush will provide enhanced pick-up. Customize your cleaning by choosing between two cleaning modes. Eco mode is quieter and uses less battery power so your robot can last longer. Turn on Turbo mode for a super-powered cleaning with maximum pick-up.


* Tested in Neato’s lab on a combination of hard floors and carpet.



Botvac Connected Features

Laser based navigation using LIDAR technology

Laser based navigation using LIDAR technology

Botvac Connected uses LaserSmart™ to scan and map your entire house, creating a floor plan for your robot to follow. It is a LIDAR based technology similar to what is used in self driving cars. Therefore, Botvac Connected moves exactly how a smart robot should, in straight lines instead of a random pattern. Since LaserSmart uses lasers, your robot can even clean in the dark.

Customize your cleaning with Eco and Turbo Modes.

Customize your cleaning with Eco and Turbo Modes.

Botvac Connected offers the option to clean in Eco or Turbo mode. Eco mode is great for everyday cleaning. For those extra tough areas, just shift into Turbo mode. It increases suction and speeds up the core brush, getting into every last crack and crevice.

Botvac Connected FAQ

What smartphone platforms are supported by the Neato app?

The Neato app is compatible with iOS 8.0 or later or Android 4.0 or later.

Is there “regular” maintenance required for the Botvac Connected?

To keep you Botvac Connected running in tip-top shape you should do a few routine things. Use a Q-Tip to clean the drop sensors monthly. Remove the main brush and clean it off using the hair cutting tool monthly. Change filters every two months to maintain its effectiveness in trapping dust and allergens. Down the road, you’ll want to replace the main brush as well as the battery in order to get the best possible clean.

If the Botvac Connected does not finish cleaning, does it automatically recharge and resume?

Yes, your Botvac Connected will automatically recharge and resume where it left off.

Can I use the multiple devices to control my Botvac Connected?

As long as you use the same account to sign into the Neato app on the other devices, you can use the same account. So, you can give access to any of your family members to start your Botvac Connected.

What do I do with the magnetic strip that came with my Botvac Connected?

The magnetic strip is a physical barrier. When taped to the floor, your Botvac Connected will not cross the magnetic strip so your robot won’t clean in areas you don’t want it to.
