Neato Robotics XV Signature™ Series Takes Robot Vacuum Category to New Level

What’s the number one complaint people have about vacuuming their floors? According to new research from Neato Robotics®, it’s maneuvering the vacuum around table and chair legs and underneath furniture – along with getting close enough to edges and corners. Dealing with vacuum cords and lugging around a heavy vacuum were also cited among the most annoying aspects of vacuuming. Yet almost half of those surveyed wished there was a way they could vacuum their floors every day.

The new Neato XV Signature Pro robot vacuum is the smartest and most powerful robot vacuum yet. It has the strongest suction available in a robot vacuum, uses an advanced laser guided navigation system to systematically clean a home, and gets in corners and under furniture. It knows when its running out of battery and will return itself to its docking station. And just like a coffee maker, it can be programmed to clean at a designated time, even when no one is home.

Enter the new Neato XV Signature Series of robot vacuums. Introduced today by Neato Robotics, a Silicon Valley company that pioneers robot technologies to free people from household chores, the new vacuums are the smartest and most powerful robot vacuums yet.

The new sleek black models, which include the Neato XV Signature and Neato XV Signature Pro, feature Neato’s unique square front and low profile design, which lets them vacuum underneath furniture and close to corners and walls for maximum pick-up of dirt, dust, debris and pet hair.

Just as a coffee maker can be programmed to brew at a designated time, Neato vacuums can be set to clean a house whether the owner is home or not. The Control Center allows users to easily schedule daily cleanings, spot clean, or just push a button for instant cleaning. Daily vacuuming – without the hassles – is automatic and simple.

Unlike other robot vacuums that bounce around a room in a random style, Neato’s advanced laser-guided navigation automatically maps a room to choose the smartest cleaning path. Its Smart Sensor technology automatically detects and avoids stairs, and doesn’t bump into furniture like other robots do. It’s even smart enough to return to its base to recharge and then resume vacuuming where it left off.

The new aerodynamic design of the Neato XV Signature™ series picks up 50% more dust. The Neato XV Signature™ series features also include:

  • A high-powered vacuum that picks up dirt, debris, pet hair, dander and microscopic fibers, often overlooked by lesser-powered vacuums.
  • New vacuum design that hugs the floor for superior pickup on any floor type, including carpet, wood, tile and even rugs with fringe.
  • High-performance filters that rid homes of allergens, make homes healthier, remove particles from the air stream down to 3 microns in size, including mold, spores, dander, dust mites, pollen, textile and carpet fibers.
  • Improved navigation that extends Neato’s lead as the only vacuum smart enough to navigate and clean multiple rooms. Neato knows where it’s been, where it’s going and returns to where it left off.
  • Large bag-less dirt bin, making it easy to use and environmentally friendly.

“Our new XV Signature series of robot vacuums demonstrates Neato’s commitment to developing the smartest and most powerful home robots to help consumers with household chores,” said Nancy Nunziati, vice president of marketing of Neato Robotics, Inc. “Our research confirms that people want a cleaner home but don’t like doing the tasks and don’t want to invest more time in cleaning. That’s where the value of a robot vacuum comes in—it automatically takes of care of cleaning the floors so people don’t have to.”

Along with the introduction of the new products, the company also announced the latest version of the Neato Robot software and the new Neato Software Update Tool. Neato Robotics is the only company to offer continuous improvements through upgrades available to customers, meaning their robots only grow smarter.

Current Neato owners can now easily upgrade to the new software version at no charge and enjoy the latest improvements:

  • Corner Clever: New capability helps robot vacuums enter and back out of corners more precisely, and continue around the corner to ensure it has thoroughly cleaned the entire floor.
  • Navigation: Improvements to navigation system optimizes how a home is cleaned.

Customers can update their robots by visiting www.NeatoRobotics.com and clicking on the Software Updates link under the Support tab.
