Amazon cuts the price of Ecovacs Deebot 601 robotic vacuum by 50% for one day

Amazon’s 50% price cut for one day only on the Ecovacs Deebot 601 robotic vacuum enhanced app control got our attention. If you’re in the market for a new robot vacuum, this Amazon daily deal may get your attention, too. The deal expires at midnight tonight Pacific Time, so if you want it, grab the Deebot 601 while it’s available at this awesome price.

We usually don’t get excited about discounts for anything less than 30%. When we saw Amazon took 50% off the price of this well-regarded Ecovacs model, even though it’s just for one day, we were impressed. Whether you’re looking for a robot vacuum for a wedding gift or Father’s Day or if you want an Alexa and Google Home compatible robot vac to add to your smart home, this deal can help you save $190.

Ecovacs Deebot 601 with App Control— $190 off

The Deebot 601 senses floor surfaces and when it detects a hard floor, the robotic vacuum employs an optimized path for the most efficient and thorough cleaning. The smart vac can also tell when it encounters extra dirt or debris on hard floor and carpet that requires more suction power; when deeper cleaning is needed the Deebot 601 automatically switches to Max Mode for up to twice the Suction power.

Ecovacs’ 3-stage process uses two edge brushes and a V-shaped main brush to sweet, lift, and vacuum synchronously for efficient one-pass cleaning. The Deebot 601’s low-profile design, just under 4 inches high, allows the robot to move under furniture to clean dirt, dust, and debris that usually escapes regular cleaning.

Ecovacs refers to the Deebot 601 as”pet-friendly” for two reasons. The vacuum not only vacuums up pet hair, but it also operates with a low sound level so it won’t disturb pets with unsettling noises.

The Deebot 601 includes an infrared remote, which gives you four ways to control the robot vacuum. You can schedule the Deebot 601 to clean at specified days and times and choose from auto, one-room, and spot-cleaning modes with the remote or the Ecovacs mobile app.

You can also use the app, the remote, and Alexa or Google Assistant voice commands to stop, start, or send the robot vacuum back to its charging station. Ecovacs rates the Deebot 601 for up to 110 minutes of vacuuming per charge. Extensive use of Max Mode diminishes the running time. When the robot vacuum senses its battery power is running low, it automatically returns to the charging station.

The Deebot 601 senses objects in its path and falls (such as from stairs or room level changes), so it won’t damage your walls or furniture or injure itself.

Normally priced at $380, the Ecovacs Deebot 601 is half price or $190 only during this one-day sale. If you want an advanced robotic vacuum that you can control with a smartphone app or with either of the predominant smart home digital voice assistants, this is a great opportunity to take advantage of an awesome price.
