Anti-Tangle function:

The anti-tangle feature prevents  robot vacuums from tangling in carpet fringes or cables. This feature is included with most devices from 150 pounds.

Fall Protection

Through various sensors, a vacuum cleaner robot can detect stairs or heels on his tour of the house. Without this function, he would crash down the stairs, causing damage. This feature has most devices installed.


Obstacle detection

A very important feature that should not be missing from any robot. This feature prevents damage to the home caused by the robot. For example, vases could be knocked over if the feature does not exist. For devices under 150 pounds, the recognition rate is very flattering, although it is highlighted by the manufacturer.


Self-sufficient charging

This feature is a must criterion. The vacuum cleaner robot automatically moves to a charging station before the battery is completely empty. When it is recharged, the robot resumes work. If this function is missing, the vacuum robot stops when the battery is empty.


Side brushes

Side brushes is a must to have for a Robot vacuum. These are indispensable for corners. Almost all devices have which. For some robots you can still be extra attached.


Various filters

Some vacuum robots can be equipped with special filters. These filters then additionally clean the air and thereby reduce the unpleasant odors of pets or smokers. There are also filters for allergy sufferers.

The maximum permitted volume in the England is 80 dB for vacuum robots. Some cheap devices come close to the value. Acceptable are values in the range between 60 and 70 dB. Very good devices even come under 60 dB

Expensive devices detect particularly soiled area by various sensors. These are then traversed several times in succession by the vacuum robot. A very useful feature.

Traces of a party can still be seen from the day before. No problem if your robot vacuum cleaner has this mode. The robot then simply shuts down the apartment several times or more slowly.
