Robot vacuum

[Yesterday’s run: 3.5 miles]

Our daughter and son-in-law bought us a robot vacuum for Christmas and we’ve been having fun with that.  It is called a Deebot.  We have it parked in it’s little charger place in the living room and once a day I push the “auto” button and it starts roaming around doing its thing.

We don’t have a lot of square footage, but I think what we do have is a challenge for such a device.  I know it picks up a full load of dust and hair every day.

Sometimes I find it stuck under a bed or marooned on the bathroom scale.  It will give some plaintive beeps, but if I don’t hear it, eventually it just powers down and waits.

It came with a remote control which means it will probably do a lot of things we don’t have configured.  I know it will connect to Wifi, but I’m not sure why a person would want their vacuum connected to Wifi.  The remote does help to find it if I miss the beeps:  I can hit the button on the remote to make it beep some more.

I like it.

    How cool is that? I have a coworker who SWEARS she has friends who have one that ran at night when their dog had an accident. The #### flew (literally). Hard to believe that can happen but she has high cred.

    What a handy device! Nice with pets around. Courtney and Tony have one and it helps with the furrustration of cleaning at their place, too.
