This form of carpet and floor cleaning would suit some households, and be “surplus to needs” for others.
I bought a far cheaper, and smaller auto-bot vacuum device about a year ago, and it’s hopeless. Even the cats don’t want to play with it. Thick carpet stopped it dead, a poor joke really. So, I needed to see some radical improvements from this latest offering.
The Ecovacs Deebot N8 Pro is a far different kettle of domestic bliss.
Most of our house is carpeted. The wet areas have a hard cork tile finish.
Surprisingly, the Deebot N8 works better on our thick carpet, than it does on the hard floors.
Using the little disposable wet pads is fidd...

DEEBOT is not the best of the best Robotic vacuum, but it does the job nicely.
My property size is 200 Sqm with 4 bedrooms, a lounge, a family room, a large sunroom, laundry area, 2 baths and toilets. Except for the lounge and bedrooms, all other areas are tiles.
I received the Ecovacs DEEBOT N8 Pro Robotic vacuum model a month before. I already have the Roborock S5 Max Robotic vacuum, so I’m comparing it with Deebot.
1. Quick Delivery
2. The box was packed well, and no damages during transit
Product Initial Setup:...I have opened the box and set up the vacuum. It is not that harder to set up. I have downloaded the Deebot app on an Android phone. Initially, the Deebot struggled to identify my Wi-Fi because I have mesh Wi-Fi. Finally, the Deebot connected with my Wi-Fi. Pros: 1. Basic and easy setup. Setup took 10 minutes for me (maybe due to prior experience with Robotic vacuum) 2. Dock has enough length wire to reach the Powerpoint Cons: 1. Dock slightly bulk 2. Detecting mesh Wi-Fi with little difficulty. Unfortunately, no 5Ghz Wi-Fi is available. Comparison: Roborock S5 Max is also easy to set up, especially the app. The app picked up the mesh Wi-Fi signal quickly, and the doc is slim compare to Deebot. Product First Use: I operated Deebot with vacuum power to the Max mode. The Deebot cleaned only 68 minutes for the 66 Sqm size of the property. It took three times to recharge and complete the cleaning. Each time recharge took 3.5 hours. So the battery life is not great. This Deebot is suitable for 2 or 3 bedroom medium size houses but not for larger houses. Overall the cleaning is good. Pros: 1. Good Suction 2. Cleaning is good Cons: 1. Vacuum unable to complete larger home in a single time. 2. Took charge for 3.5 hours 3. It missed a few areas to clean. 4. It struck on some areas, mainly revolving chairs and bar stools. Comparison: Roborock S5 Max is a better choice for battery and covers the entire house with Max mode. Map Setup: The map is not drawn the first time correctly. It took nearly ten times to get a reasonable map. I used the Vacuum power to quiet mode to draw the map to cover the entire house at one time. I’m not impressed with the map. After completion of the cleaning, the map was generated automatically and divided the areas alphabetically. However, in some areas, the map is not divided. So I don’t know how to activate those areas. Refer to the screenshot. The map required a lot of improvement. Pros: 1. Reasonable map Cons: 1. Couldn’t get a perfect map 2. Several times to operate the Deebot to get a reasonable map. 3. Areas are not divided properly 4. Hard to divide the areas Comparison: Roborock S5 Max is a better choice when it comes to the map. S5 Max is not the best of the best but better than Deebot. Vacuuming: I used to vacuum only first to test it. It is excellent with more suction, and cleaning is perfect on both carpet and tiles. The Deebot automatically changed the mode from tiles to carpet with increased suction. The only problem with Deebot is the struggle to move over on a corner rug. Pros: 1. Great suction power 2. Perfect cleaning in bot 3. Automatically detect carpets and increased the power Cons: 1. It is not cleaning in order and moving between multiple rooms multiple times. 2. It missed some areas to clean Comparison: Roborock S5 Max is good in suction however, Deebot is better than S5 Max. I have operated the Deebot after the S5 Max vacuuming. Still, Deebot picked lots of dust which is impressive. Mopping: Mopping is again reasonable. It is not the best. Pros: 1. Ten disposable mop pads were provided, along with a reusable pad. 2. Mopping is reasonable. Cons: 1. Mopping not evenly spreading the water on the floor Comparison: Roborock S5 Max is good in mopping slightly better than Deebot. Conclusion: If you have a 2 or 3 bedroom medium-sized home, this is a better option. If you have a larger property, you need lots of patience to recharge multiple times to complete the cleaning cycle. The vacuuming is perfect, and mopping is reasonable. The map required improvement. Overall, I’m recommending this product to buy.

Amazing Robot that vacuums and mops exceedingly well. Can't live without it now.
I was pleasantly surprised at how good the Deebot N8 Pro robot actually is. It is intelligent, very effective at vacuuming and by regularly cleaning your floors with daily vacuuming I think this could do 98% of my mopping permanently. I feel like I cannot live without it now and would highly recommend it. It frees up my time considerably and is exceedingly quiet. I am so glad to have this Ecovac. My dogs used to be scared of the vaccum, but now they just walk past it, and it doesn't run into them or me if we are in the way. Humorously, my dog...s like to grab a couple of biscuits and place them on the floor to eat when I am in the kitchen with them, and whilst videoing the robot vacuuming, it came along next to my Dachsund and whisked away one of his biscuits before he could eat it. From previously being terrified of the noise etc from my heavy Barrel Dyson vacuum, this surprised him but did not phase him. The dogs have not tried to attack it at all, even after it ate his biscuit. The ECOVACS App is very handy, I can come home, vacuum the front hall and lounge where bark from the firewood gets dropped/walked across the room. It automatically knows when it is on carpet or vinyl and tiles, and changes its suck power accordingly. All this is changeable on the App if you feel the need to increase or decrease it, but the settings it uses already seem very good so I haven't altered them. It detects when it is on a rug, and I am very impressed with its ability to clean my Mud Mats so well.. These used to be such a pain when we vacuumed by hand, getting sucked in, and needing continual bending to clean.. Now they are all spotless and my house looks so much cleaner. The mats are all clean, lying in position perfectly and there are no hairs from my 2 dogs lying around, and no more dust bunnies. This vacuum even cleans under my beds, low coffee tables - something I haven't been able to do for years with my Dyson.... I can set it to clean the whole house, or individual rooms or custom areas easily with the App, even getting it to clean x2 if I wanted for each area. I find x1 cleaning has been ample, and now use this robot vacuum daily. I tried the mopping feature out today, to see if it was worth using, as I was a bit skeptical.. To my surprise it is actually pretty good. I took some video of it mopping to see how much water is dispersed. It is very adequate. No detergent is used. If I walked mud in I wouldn't use this, I would wipe up with a baby wipe or disinfectant wipe first. But for day to day vacuuming and washing it is very good to use. It knows where the diagonal carpet border is on my kitchen/hall boundary and doesn't wet the carpet or any mats if you left them down. My floors are clean, dust free and feel very clean to walk on. The Robot vacuum is very easy to empty, and it holds more than I thought in its easily removable and cleanable container. I have long hair, and previously it was a pain every time we vacuumed having to pry it out of the Dyson's vacuum turbohead. Hair is easily removed from the Deebot N8Pro's roller underneath, and it doesn't seem to get as many hairs tangled as other vacuums have, they must get sucked into the dust compartment more often than wrapped around the roller. It is easy to maintain, having a little brush, removable roller that fits in very easily and is pretty easy to clean. No problem or dread in cleaning it, it doesn't feel like a chore. It saves me so much time and keeps my house so clean I am going to look after this and maintain it well. The mop pad it came with washes out easily, and sits flat. It also comes with some disposable mop pads which I will try next. I will order some filters etc as per the maintenance schedule in the book, but it will be worth it as this robot is a keeper. Well worth the money. Ideal for anyone who has found their vacuuming too tiring as they have lost their muscle strength, as instead of getting someone in to vacuum once a week you can rely on this daily to keep your home spic and span, so you aren't embarrassed if visitors arrive anytime of the week. If I had a holiday home, I would take it with me as who wants to go cleaning during their holiday?? I have a large area of Berber (loop)carpet throughout my 3 bedroom home.

One impressive piece of technology.
I'll start of by saying the Deebot N8 Pro is an amazing device. I've been using it for just under a month now and I'm very glad we have it. Our house has tiles, floorboards, carpet and 4 bedrooms and we have 2 dogs and 3 young children so it needs cleaning often and the Deebot is up to the task. For me the initial setup was a bit tedious and getting the Deebot to map the house for the first time had it's issues. Once that was done it has been a pleasure.
It runs for about 73min on mixed surfaces on medium vacuum strength. That time will be aro...und 2hrs on hard surfaces and under 60min for carpet. When the battery is low it will return to charge and then continue cleaning where it left off once it decides it has enough charge to finish the job. It takes around 3.5 hours to fully charge, and has mopping and vacuuming functionality. It has some neat sensors including optical and gentle bump sensors that allow it to navigate around objects. PROS: - Able to climb over 20mm steps. - Automatically detects floor types and what can and can't be mopped and automatically increases vacuum strength on carpet. - The dust cartridge is easy to access and empty. - Has a great App that allows you to fully customise and control the mapping and cleaning as well as monitor the Deebot in real-time and give notifications when there are issues.

Should have bought one years ago
Have started using the deebot for vacuuming our carpets, tile, and timber floors.... living room, kitchen, bathroom, 4 bedrooms. Vacuuming performance on soft and hard surfaces is great, it fills it's canister with each trip over the house, so needs changing daily.
The setup programming was simple, and its great to be able to see it map the house on the app. It can move around really well, avoiding objects that the kids leave around on the floor, and gets up and over the joins from carpet to timber / tile to timber no worries. Noise level i...
