Robot vacuums are becoming more and more common and they're not just coming from companies like iRobot or Neato, bigger brands too, like Samsung, have entered into the robot vacuum market with options for consumers and they seem to be just as capable as some of the vacuums from brands that are more well-known for this type of product. Samsung in fact is offering a deal on its R7040 robot vacuum that comes with Amazon Alexa support for the price of just $418, which is down from its normal price of $499 making for an $82 savings on this item that was built to make your home life a little more convenient by taking some of the cleaning duties off your hands.
Since the R7040 robot vacuum works with Amazon Alexa, you can talk to either the Alexa app on your smartphone or one of Amazon's Echo speakers that are powered by Alexa to control the vacuum with just your voice and tell Alexa to assign the vacuum certain tasks. Once the requests have been recognized they can be relayed to the vacuum and it can begin the process of cleaning your home. Some of the supported requests could include starting a clean, stopping a clean, and pausing a clean, and if you're not one who uses an Echo device you can also use the vacuum with Google Assistant and Google Home as it supports those too.
If you'd prefer you could also just use the official companion app for the vacuum to control it remotely meaning you don't even have to be home to start a clean, you can simply do it from anywhere as long as you have a connection to the web. The vacuum also has tons of features so you can get the perfect clean every time, like an edge clean if you just want it to focus on the edges of the designated area, and it has a wide brush to ensure that it's grabbing up as much debris and other stuff as possible. The filter is also washable so you can also clean the vacuum just as easy as it cleans your home, and you can even set up a schedule so that it does things automatically.
