The iRobot Roomba 890 WI-FI Connected Vacuum is a futuristic cleaning bot that will automatically go about vacuuming your house, either to a schedule or on your command.
The device is not perfect, and the cleaning power that it offers, although good for moderately clean homes, will not perform a deep clean like a professional cleaning service.
Is it for you?
If you enjoy technology but hate vacuuming, then this is the perfect device for you. If you are a technophobe and you hate vacuuming, then this is still a good option for you.
Meet the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2
The iRobot Roomba 890 WI-FI Connected Vacuum is a next generation cleaning bot that operates via your Wi-Fi enabled smart phone. From here, you are able to view cleaning reports, set your preferred cleaning routes, check a map overlay, and much more. The cleaner itself should be seen as more of a maintenance cleaner than one that will do the initial deep clean of your home. For the purposes of doing quick and superficial cleans this is the ideal product.
What we like
Products that come with an app for your smart phone are always welcome in our book, especially one that does the cleaning around the house for you. What we have here is a device that weighs around 8 pounds and measures around 13 inches.
It is able to continuously clean throughout the day (or whenever you have scheduled it for) and can sense obstacles in its way. If you don’t want the robot to disturb you in another part of the house, simple activate the ‘no-go’ zone with the supplied sensor.
This makes the area behind the sensor off limits to the robot, who will then continue to clean elsewhere. When the batteries are low, the unit will head back to its charging station and give itself a recharge.
There are multiple cleaning brushes that can be equipped, depending on the surfaces within your home, giving you options that will allow you to maintain the cleanliness of your home.
What we don’t like
The higher end iRobot Roomba units are able to recharge and then resume their cleaning routine automatically, meaning that it will clean until you need to intervene for another reason.
This particular model will only clean until the unit needs to recharge, after which it will stay docked until it is initialized to continue its cleaning routine, or the base station is moved to another location and the process is begun anew.
Should you buy it?
This is a fun piece of equipment for the home, and it does work really well. The level of sophistication that is built into this class of consumer electronics is set to continue to rise, and the end results are sure to be unreal. This particular unit has one or two small issues that could probably be solved by purchasing the unit above this one, but for the price, it performs really well. Cleaning is no longer an issue for iRobot Roomba 890 WI-FI Connected Vacuum owners, as the bot will take care of the drudgery of daily vacuuming on your behalf.
