This Alexa-Compatible Smart Vacuum Will Change the Way You Clean

Cleaning stubborn dust and pet hair has never been easier, even on your hardwood floors. The iRobot Roomba 960 uses Amazon Alexa's smart home technology to give your home a deep clean with just the push of a button or the call of a voice command.

Take some of the work out of housework with a smart home vacuum. The iRobot Roomba 960 cleans floors throughout your entire home with just the tap of an app. You can also use it with an Alexa-equipped Amazon device like the Echo or Dot to get the most out of your connected smart home.

The iRobot Roomba 960's Advanced Dirt Detect and iAdapt navigation mean that it senses your floor plan seamlessly and determines which spots need a little extra attention. This model delivers five times the air power than past iterations, so it's even better at picking up dust, pollen, and stubborn pet hair on carpets, rugs, or hardwood floors. And its high-efficiency filter leaves nothing behind, capturing 99 percent of all allergens and other tiny debris—even in hard-to-reach spots like under the couch.

But the Roomba 960 is more than just a vacuum: It's also an integral part of your smart home. You can tell it to begin its cleaning routine from anywhere via an app, set a regular schedule, get a detailed report on past rounds, or command Alexa to start or stop a routine with just your voice. That means no more laborious vacuuming; just set your Roomba on a schedule and marvel about what to do with all your new free time.
