Roborock Q5+ Robot Vacuum

Anything that makes our lives easier is a winner – and Roborock’s Q5+ robot vacuum makes automated cleaning an affordable luxury. It combines Roborock's tried-and-true features in an updated model.

It uses LIDAR navigation to map your house and then you control it with an app: send it to the living room to pick up dirt and pet hair on your hard floors and carpets and when it’s done, it goes back to its charging base and automatically empties the dust bin into the dock, so you don’t have to think it for weeks.

Once your home is mapped, you can use the app to set schedules for specific rooms, day of the week or time of day. Direct it to spot clean a specific area like around the cat litter or where you spilled milk on the kitchen floor.
