Designed to be good for pet hair and thicker carpets, the iRobot Roomba 694 has all the essentials you would expect.

The iRobot Roomba i4 EVO provides a thorough clean that targets dirty areas and works around your schedule. When it finds a frequently dirty area, such as near your youngest child’s dinner seat, it’ll prioritize that area more than others. It also “knows” when peak pollen production is and when your pets are about to start shedding, once again ramping up its efforts to keep your home clean at those times. And if you aren’t satisfied with what its learnt (or just happen to have made a mess) you can command it to clean via voice. Just talk to it via Google Assistant or an Amazon Echo product and it’ll get started cleaning whenever and wherever you like.

iRobot Roomba i1+ — $288, was $469

The iRobot Roomba i1+ allows you to completely forget about vacuuming and floor litter for a month or more at a time. This robot vacuum does its own thing, working around your schedule, and unloads in its docking/charging station. Depending on your home’s dirt and dust output, it could take between 30 and 60 days for the output to fill up the dock. And, when it does, all you need to do is dump it and everything is back to normal, ready to be filled again.

iRobot Roomba i7+ (Refurbished) — $380, was $850

The iRobot Roomba i7 Plus with smartphone app.

The iRobot Roomba i7+ is a powerful beast ready to tackle the messes of your cuddly beasts. How so? It features pet-hair resistant rubber brushes and a filter that keeps 99% of the allergy-causing cat and dog dander particles where they belong, inside the vacuum. Plus, it has ten times the suction power of the 600 series Roombas, giving it the power to get everything off the floor. The refurbishing job for this deal is manufacturer certified.

iRobot Roomba i3+ EVO — $400, was $550

The iRobot Roomba i3+ EVO doesn’t just suck up dirt all around you, it looks after itself. With self-cleaning properties, you rarely need to empty its bin. It heads back to its dock, empties the content there and in the future, you can empty it en masse. It’s capable of handling stubborn dirt and mess, cleaning intelligently in straight lines back and forth. Learning your cleaning habits, it’ll make suggestions right down to suggesting extra clean sessions during peak pollen or shedding season. It’s great for keeping your home clean in a mostly hands-off kind of way.

iRobot Roomba j6+ — $500, was $800

While the iRobot Roomba j6+ isn’t quite what we’d call pet tech, it is a cleaning device that pet lovers should know about. Why? In addition to the mapping and dirt detection that we already love from Roombas, the j6+ detects pet waste and goes around it. While, at first glance, avoiding cleaning isn’t something we want our Roomba to do, it is in this case. Running over pet waste can get the Roomba far dirtier than we want it to be and will spread the mess around. And when there is a specific spot you want it to clean up, you just have to tell it. It’ll do a spot clean “near the oven” or “by the refrigerator” at your voice command.

iRobot Roomba j7 — $549, was $599

Not only does this model avoid pet messes (which prevents it from dragging them around the house) but it also avoids cords and other objects that it could get hung up on. What’s even neater is that it’ll send you a photo of the object in question and ask for your guidance about what to do in the future. It’s all about assisting you get the clean you want and sparing you big trouble.

Dyson’s best cordless vacuum is $200 off for Cyber Monday
The Dyson V15 Detect using its laser sensor to find dust on the floor.

A cordless vacuum makes life so much simpler than an old-fashioned corded vacuum cleaner. The Cyber Monday deals going on at the moment are your ideal chance to score a new cordless vacuum for less. In particular, we've spotted an awesome deal at Best Buy on the Dyson V15. It usually costs $800 but it's down to $600 for a limited time only so you save $200 compared to usual. It's one of the more expensive cordless vacuums but it's also one of the best. Here's why you might want to consider buying it before Cyber Monday ends and the price returns to normal.

Why you should buy the Dyson V15 Cordless Vacuum
The Dyson V15 is pretty high-tech, as you'd expect from a Dyson. For example, the vacuum can adjust the force of the vacuum for various debris types as you vacuum to make sure you get the most efficient use of the battery. That's how it can manage up to 60 minutes of run time, which is more than most cordless vacuum cleaners on the market. Also, an LED screen at the top of the vacuum tells you how much debris you've picked up, which isn't that useful of a metric, but it's certainly interesting.
