Robot vacuums have become fairly popular in the last few years, which has driven their cost down. You can now pick up vacuums as cheap as about $200, but there are also some that are more fancy and have plenty more features for closer to a grand. The Neato Botvac Connected is right there in the middle. Typically, the Botvac Connected would cost around $799, but right now Newegg has it for just $499. This is their Black Friday pricing, so it’ll be available until around Sunday evening, or while supplies last.
The Neato Botvac Connected is one of the more interesting robot vacuums out there. Not because of the way it cleans your home, it does have a 3-stage cleaning system like most other robot vacuums out there. But the real interesting feature here is the fact that it is compatible with Amazon’s Alexa. This is a brand new feature that they rolled out just this week. It allows you to go ahead and use your voice to tell your vacuum to start cleaning up your home. Definitely an exciting feature. Speaking of Alexa, the Amazon Echo, Amazon Tap and Echo Dot are all on sale right now for Black Friday. We’ll have those links below as well.
