Get in on the robo vac craze with an iRobot Roomba 675 under $200 for the first time

If you're still vacuuming for yourself, you're doing it wrong. Especially when the iRobot Roomba 675 robot vacuum (opens in new tab) is down to just $199 on Amazon. The Roomba 675 has been selling for around $230 recently, but it was going for as much as $270 before that. Today's price is the first time we've seen it available under $200, making it the perfect opportunity to add one to your smart home.

The 675 robot vacuum uses a three stage cleaning system and multi-surface brushes to make sure it picks up everything, including larger debris and smaller dust particles. The Roomba's sensors help it determine places that have more dirt so it can focus on those spots. That's helpful for high-traffic areas around the house. It comes with an edge-sweeping brush that helps get debris out of corners.

The Roomba can be controlled and scheduled through the free app, and it's compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant so you can connect it to your Amazon Echo (opens in new tab) or Google Home (opens in new tab) device and control it with just your voice. It will work for up to 90 minutes before automatically returning to its base to dock and recharge.
