* The Roomba is heavily discounted right now

Many robot vacuums have taken aim at the iRobot Roomba, but it’s still the king.
Right now, the Roomba 690 is heavily discounted on Amazon at 34% off. Normally, the highly-rated robot vacuum sells for $375, but today Amazon has it listed for just $249. That’s some of the best savings we’ve ever seen for an iRobot (they rarely go on sale), making it an ideal time to upgrade your home with a Roomba.
The iRobot Roomba has become one of the best-selling, most talked-about smart home gadgets, and it’s easy to understand why. The little robot connects to your WiFi, and then automatically scurries around your house picking up debris – including ever-present animal hair. It also has a dirt detection system that recognizes high-traffic areas of the home, and gives those areas extra attention.
You can control the Roomba using your smartphone, but the best way to control a robot vacuum is with a robot assistant like Alexa or Google Home. This allows you to start, stop, or dock the Roomba using only your voice.
Like all iRobot products, the Roomba 690 comes very highly-rated with over 2,000 reviews and 4 stars.
