Botvac and Google Assistant
The Google Assistant on your Google Home can answer questions, play music, and manage tasks. Now it can add controlling your Neato connected robot vacuum, as well as other devices in your smart home.
Just say, “Ok Google, tell Neato robot to start cleaning” for a completely hands-free clean.
Google Assistant integration include the ability to check battery level, locate the robot vacuum, and schedule a cleaning cycle. That’s all standard stuff – but this can all be done through the power of voice.
Customers can choose how to interact with their robot via the Neato App, Amazon Alexa Skill, Neato Chatbot for Facebook, and now, the Google Assistant.
All Neato robots use the company’s patented Neato LaserSmart technology. This uses laser scanning, continuous room mapping and real time object detection to plan the most efficient course to clean a home.
This means the Neato robot alters its navigation instantly when a new obstacle enters its path.
Even in the dark, it can navigate intelligently, even room to room.
