Roomba question
I had a Roomba iRobot about 4ish years ago and really liked it. I am thinking about getting a new one and have a couple requirements and need help.

I remember thinking that once the robot “learns the space”, it should give you a “map” on some web portal where you can assign areas/zones and then schedule certain zones to be cleaned at certain times on certain days.

Is there any advancement with a device that could do that?

At the end of the day, these frickers aren’t cheap and don’t want to feel like I made the wrong purchase.

TIA

I got my wife the highest level series for Christmas and it does a great job vacuuming. It's much stronger than the older model we had. I also like that the bin empties itself.

The bad. Our dog hair tends to clog it up sometimes so we have to manually clean it and you have to keep the sensors clean. It has done an outstanding job mapping the space.

I just got the Wyze and it does everything you are asking for.

And it's about $250. I love it so far.

You tell it to map out the house and it takes 15 minutes or so and scans everything. It automatically designates rooms but you can merge or split them up however you want.

You can set up no-go zones anywhere you want. Real handy for under beds with a lot of crap or you don't want it running over a rug all the time wearing it down.

After each clean, it shows you the path it took so you know which spots it gets or if it missed an area for whatever reason.

You can also choose between Quiet, Standard, or Strong suction mode.

Idk how long it will last but so far it is a steal at its current price point.

Wyze

re: Roomba question
We just bought the s9 with the empty bucket.

It’s honestly amazing. We have two dogs. Not heavy shedders but enough to have it on floors after 3-4 days.

Ours runs daily in the living area which includes living room kitchen and dining.

We have it running other rooms on alternating days.

Does amazing. A huge time saver.

re: Roomba question
Yes it does that. Get the one with the bin attached. Only have to empty it every other week or so.

re: Roomba question
Does the Wyze have a emptying “dumpster”? Or do you have to empty it from the unit itself?

re: Roomba question
+1 for the Wyze. We've had it since it came out because we pre-ordered. We had a hiccup or two with mapping but the latest updates have fixed that. You can't beat it for the price

re: Roomba question
I like all the other features, but the “dumpster” aspect of some other models seems pretty cool.

So now, is there one that has both?

I have the S6 Max, it's awesome. I read up on the Wyze, appears to be a repackaged Roborock with tweaked software.
I doubt you will regret either.

Yes

Robot vacuums have gotten exponentially better in the last few years IMO. We had a Roomba about 5 years ago (pretty good one, think it was 600 bucks or so) and it fell apart and did a terrible job. The Roborock we have was half the price of that one and is straight faced 20x better.

I suspect that's more a testament to advances among all the major brands (rather than a slight to iRobot) but we really like the RoboRock
