The best iRobot Roomba deals to make cleaning your home a breeze

Do you like to keep a tidy home but are all but allergic to cleaning? A smarter vacuum may be the solution. Now arguably viewed as smart home products, automated robotic vacuums don’t just clean for you and save you time, they also often have built-in technology that allows them to clean more efficiently. If you’ve been wondering if robot vacuums really work you might want to look at the industry leader in robotic vacuums, iRobot. The iRobot brand is currently offering some impressive Roomba vacuum deals to help you decide if you want to take the plunge.

Introduced about 16 years ago, these smart vacuum cleaners feature a set of sensors that allow them to perform tasks most generic vacuums cannot. They operate using an embedded computer in conjunction with the Roomba Open Interface. Many are Wi-Fi-compatible and can be controlled via mobile apps. Although there have been some recent security concerns about the iRobot Roomba products, the company’s CEO was quick to address them. Read on to discover the best Roomba deals available right now, along with a few budget-friendly Roomba alternatives from other brands.
