The best robot vacuums are so quiet you barely know they’re there, yet so effective that they leave your floors and carpets sparkling. An especially agile vacuum can adapt quickly to your space and glide smoothly across multiple surfaces, picking up all types of food crumbs and pet hair in the process. Smart vacuum owners will tell you that they’re most relieved when they can easily troubleshoot any vacuum problems, and the device can operate fairly independently without any unforeseen messes. Below are some of the swiftest, most effective smart robot vacuums on the market that will save you hours of time on chores.

The Roomba is a household name for a reason. This model’s navigation hinges on a robust collection of sensors, so it can navigate seamlessly from room to room. It is remote-controlled and can be programmed to do the deeds while you’re not home, handling sharp corners and stairs all on it’s own. It also comes with a compact self-charging station, so it takes up minimal space and is always ready for its next task.

This vacuum is so smart that it can keep track of areas it has already cleaned and will navigate it’s way back to the charging station (some humans, endearingly, can’t even say as much). This machine can clean for a maximum of 100 minutes before it needs extra juice. Its 400-milliliter dustbin can handle several rooms’ worth of unwanted litter, and it comes with multiple attachments including a mop pad to cover different surfaces and messes.

This slim machine is less than three inches tall, yet powered by large wheels, so it can roll easily through doorways. It could be less noisy than your microwave, and it’s a great midrange option for a 1500pa suction power. Its 0.6-liter dust bin will hold a substantial amount of dirt, so you’re not constantly emptying. This vacuum is also made by the same folks as Anker, which makes popular and trusted electronics.

You can pair this relatively affordable vacuum to your Alexa or Google Assistant app, and instruct it to suck up all the dog hair in every room of your home. The device’s three-way filter system ensures the dust it picks up won’t return to your own air. It’s also slim enough to fit under furniture and into tight corners. It uses roller brush and side brushes to ensure a thorough clean, and its manufacturer has fine-tuned the product across several generations to avoid failure or collisions.
