Today, we’re going to be looking at the iRobot Roomba 677 Smart Wi-Fi Connected Robot Vacuum. When you are finished reading this review, you’ll know all about this robot vacuum and whether or not it’s right for you.
Excellent Smart Functionality
Just as the name of this robot vacuum cleaner implies, this machine offers “Smart Wi-Fi” functionality. What this means is that you can access all of the different features and settings this robot vacuum offers using a smart device.
If you own a smartphone, you can use your smartphone to connect to this robot vacuum. When you connect your smartphone to this robot vacuum, you can then access all of the different settings and features that this robot vacuum offers. Plus, you have access to certain kinds of data that has to do with the robot vacuum’s current status, and this data consists of things like the current battery-life and the status of the vacuuming process.
Alternatively, you can also use smart devices such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. What is really nice about this, is the fact that, with those smart devices, you can use your voice to control the robot vacuum. That way, you don’t even have to press any buttons or manipulate any of those settings physically; you can simply use your voice and control the robot vacuum.
As for the settings that this robot vacuum offers, there are several of them. Each one of the settings that iRobot has given this robot vacuum is very useful in its own way, and these settings allow you to tailor the robot vacuuming process to the specific needs that you have.
One of the most important settings that this robot vacuum offers is that of being able to set a custom schedule. With this setting, you can determine when the robot vacuum is on and vacuuming, and when it’s not. That way, if you want the robot vacuum to turn on at two o’clock in the afternoon, and to run for one-hour, it will do so. And, you don’t have to manually turn on the robot vacuum, because it will follow this schedule automatically without your direct intervention.
There are several other settings that this robot vacuum offers. These settings are directly related to the cleaning mode that the robot vacuum is currently using. If you want the robot vacuum to clean one particular spot on a floor, then you can use “Spot Mode”, to name just one example of the cleaning modes that you have access to.
Having access to those settings makes it easy for you to tailor the robot vacuum to your vacuuming needs. These settings give you close to full-control over the entire vacuuming process, which allows you to vacuum your home the way that you want it vacuumed.
On average, this robot vacuum runs for ninety-minutes. Sometimes, it runs for a little more, and sometimes it runs for a little less. This usually depends on what it’s vacuuming and the amount of power that it’s using.
While that may not sound like a lot of battery-life – and, for a larger home, it isn’t – it works very well for smaller and medium-sized homes, allowing the robot vacuum to thoroughly vacuum the spaces within that home. Plus, when you consider the speed of this robot vacuum, it doesn’t take long for it to move through those spaces and to vacuum the material that’s within them.
Thorough Vacuuming System
Where this robot vacuum really succeeds, above all else, is in the excellent vacuuming system that it uses. With this vacuuming system, you’ll be relying on technologies such as Power-Lifting Suction and the Dual Multi-Surface Rubber Brushes.
The Power-Lifting Suction system makes it very easy for this robot vacuum to thoroughly vacuum hard floors and soft floors, including carpets and rugs. It provides more than enough suction for those surfaces, allowing you to remove dirt, dust, and debris with ease.
With the Dual Multi-Surface Rubber Brushes, the experience becomes even easier. These brushes are nice and sturdy, and they can dive into the depths of surfaces such as rugs and carpets, easily loosening up and removing whatever is contained within those surfaces. They also make quick work of dirt, dust, and debris that’s on hard floors, easily sweeping that material up and pushing it into the vacuum’s suction channel.
Conclusion: Affordable & Efficient Robot Vacuum
In the end, the iRobot Roomba 677 Smart Wi-Fi Connected Robot Vacuum is an excellent robot vacuum that is very affordable, and great for nearly any vacuuming task!
