9 Best Robot Vacuums (2018): Pet Hair, Carpets, Hardwood Floors, and More


Double Duty


Roborock S5

In addition to an optional wet mopping function, the incredibly versatile Roborock S5 also lets you program cleaning zones and check the time spent cleaning, the battery level, and the robot’s path in the app. You can also pinpoint spots for cleaning, or set a complete home automation schedule with any other Xiaomi devices. The Roborock S5 also has a few thoughtful design details, like a flap that covers the dustbin, so you can check if it needs to be emptied without removing it. If you don’t mind an app that’s difficult to navigate, a tiny dustbin, and its creepy, glowing-red eyes, this is a great option.
