Unlike some robot vacuums, the ILIFE A9 will not just run around randomly cleaning up your floors. It uses sophisticated mapping and navigation technology and cleans in a methodical back-and-forth pattern. It won't repeatedly go over the same spots and it won't miss areas. Plus, the vacuum has 14 smart sensors that help it to clean along furniture and walls and climb over low piles of carpet or whatever. The vacuum is only three inches tall, too, so it can safely go underneath some pieces of furniture like your bed. The sensors keep it from falling down the stairs or getting stuck on obstacles.

You won't have a hard time cleaning out the dustbin or doing maintenance either thanks to the upgraded CyclonePower cleaning system. The technology also helps extend the life of the high-efficiency filters. The A9 is also designed to automatically return to its charging station when it's low on battery or done cleaning for the day.

The A9 comes with an Electrowall device. It's a gadget you can use to create virtual barriers for your robot vacuum. It won't cross the lines you set in place so you can keep the vacuum from going places it doesn't belong. Download the companion app on iOS or Android. Use it to operate your new robot vacuum. Set schedules, select cleaning modes, follow the A9's progress, and more. Makes controlling your new tool a breeze.
