With infrared sensors alone, a robotic vacuum tends to be clumsy. Ecovacs takes the Deebot 711S to a higher level of navigation with the addition of an optical sensor and intelligent mapping. The Ecovacs Deebot 711S offers voice command and a smartphone app control options along with a streamlined remote and an onboard quick-start function.
A dual-material brushroll and a suction-increase function give the 711S enough power to handle medium-pile carpet. Allergens stay in the dirt bin where they belong thanks to the three-stage filtration unit. Plus, the battery can run for long enough to vacuum over 1,000 square feet per cycle.
