Review from Marcus Jacobsen
I think the Neato Connected is great but the app definitely needs work. Firstly I don't understand why when the bin is full the message doesn't get sent as a push message, as well as the robot should stop vacuuming. Secondly for spot cleaning we should be able to select different spot sizes or create custom ones. The robot does a great job though and is a huge time saver.
1. No option to stop running and return to base 2. You can tell that it must be low on power and you want to stop for now. Dock doesnt work. Its grayed out. You pick stop... thinking it will ungray. When you press stop it wont go again. So its dead. 3. You temporarily need quiet and want to charge. There is no potion for go charge until 100% then go again. Vac is very good. App not so much.
I love my Botvac Connected but the app could use some work. Many settings are not able to be changed via the app. I also wish notifications such as that the dirt bin is full would be pushed to the phone. If the bin is full it would be nice to have the option to pause the vacuum, return it to the charger, empty the bin, and the resume the same cleaning. The ability to see the coverage map during cleaning would also be nice so I could monitor progress. Overall the vacuum is great but the app seems to be more of a neat trick than an actual completely useful tool.
Have had the unit's since Christmas 2016. Gets stuck all the time trying to get under something it shouldn't even try to get under. Goes Around in Circles sweeping the same spot forever ignoring the rest of the room, it's the dumbest smart thing I own.
My robot continually says "OFFLINE" or "NOT AVAILABLE" when cleaning, so I never have any control over it when it's cleaning. And even when it is available, it doesn't give me the option to dock. Updated my robot yesterday, and today it spent most of its battery cleaning one room, and never moved to any other room (I've had the robot for nearly a year, and have never had that problem). Then it decided to dock itself before it had finished cleaning. It's always been able to find its dock before, but this time it couldn't, and "returned to start" instead, which was in a random corner. What is up?
The Neato Connected worked one time in our home! The app will not let me send it back to its dock nor delete a cleaning pattern. All in all ver disappointed
