Mr. Mittens Has Met His Match
We love our pets, but not the hair they happily leave all over your house. Cleaning with the Main Brush option delivers deep cleaning with the combination of the main brush, dual side brushes and strong suction even over carpets. But for Mr. Mittens and his hair everywhere, the Direct Suction (recommended for non carpet) cleans up human and pet hair with the main brush removed - so hair can't tangle around the brush.
V-Shaped Main Brush
The V-shaped main brush helps your Deebot achieve more lifting and deeper cleaning especially on carpets whereas the direct suction provides tangle free suction. So V now stands for 'Victorious' home cleaning.
Multiple Cleaning Modes
Deebot M88 has 4 cleaning modes to choose from to effectively clean almost all of your floors.
-Auto Cleaning Mode for energy efficient, everyday cleaning.
-Spot Cleaning Mode for a specific area of highly concentrated dust.
-Edge Cleaning Mode for cleaning along edges and in corners.
-Single Room Mode for cleaning only one room.
Wet and Dry Mop
No longer do you need two devices for two options as the Deebot M88 features an optional wet and dry mopping feature. The advanced wet/dry mopping system has an integrated water reservoir that dampens the cloth pad, mops the floor and dries it on a single pass.
Preparing a Welcoming Environment for Your New Loved One
Takes Two to Tangle
Deebot is a like a solo dancer and moves to his own beat but if wires are laying around on the floor, he will get tangled up, lose his rhythm and stop cleaning. So pick up the wires and let Deebot dance away.
Like the majority of us, DEEBOT enjoys getting home quickly after a long day at work. And just like us DEEBOT sometimes can be so tired he has a little trouble finding his way back. We are loving people so let's help him out by leaving the dock on an open, well lit area so he can find it easily to recharge.
2.4G not 5G
Did you know some wifi routers have two speeds; 2.4G and 5G? It you didn't, no worries because many of us here didn't know that either. But since we now know, we want to let you know in order to connect the robot to your app, wifi has to be on 2.4G. Once you set up the robot, you can move it back to 5G.
Our M88 has a ruthless focus on dirt and grime. Like all DEEBOTs it can clean every room in your house, but its claim to fame is tackling the hardest working parts of your house. With Smart Move technology that creates a more focused cleaning pattern, and our unique Single Room setting, the M88 will dry mop and clean the most stubborn of rooms.

The Deebot has a clean, sleek look to it. I think it's more attractive than the Roomba. It's white and is slightly higher on one side than the other. This lets it nose underneath some tight spaces but it also causes it to get stuck under our wine rack and low cabinets. It doesn't have enough power to back itself out, so we have to rescue it. The Roomba is one height all the way across so it doesn't get stuck under furniture. But it's a little bit taller than the Deebot and doesn't go under one piece of furniture where the Deebot does.
The Deebot is quieter than the Roomba. But it also seems to have less suction. It often has to go over an area 2 or 3 times to pick up what the Roomba would get on the first pass. The Deebot has the little spinning sweeping brushes on two sides where the Roomba only has them on one. This allows the Deebot to reach into corners more quickly, an advantage.
The battery in the Deebot lasts only about 50 minutes before the light on top turns red and the speed and suction diminishes. The Roomba often goes for 2 hours or more. We have a large family room/kitchen combination, a great room I guess you would call it. There are a lot of obstacles like the kitchen island with stools around two sides, sofas, tables and furniture around the perimeter. The Deebot has an app that makes it go in a more organized fashion, but with all the obstacles here, it ends up going in a random pattern anyway. The Roomba only does random. Both seem to have erratic patterns, often going back and forth over the same areas or darting off to another. It will make you crazy if you sit and watch them. The Roomba manages to clean all of the Great Room. The Deebot runs out of battery power before it gets all the way through it.
The Deebot doesn't come with, or have available to buy, the little virtual walls that keep a robot in a certain room or area. For me, that's a problem because we have a 7 foot arched doorway that goes to another part of the house. With the Roomba, we just set the virtual wall. We would have to put physical obstacles across the doorway to keep the Deebot out. The Deebot wanders out to the hall and with its limited battery power is even less likely to get all the way around the room we want it to clean.
The Deebot doesn't move as fast and doesn't run into furniture with as much force as the Roomba does. The Roomba doesn't cause any damage, but the bumping into things adds to the noise. The Roomba doesn't often get into spaces where it gets stuck. It has enough power to back itself out or go over. The Deebot often gets stuck and will try for too long to get unstuck, running down its battery. The Deebot can't untangle itself from even a single electrical cord if it runs over one. It hangs up and keeps trying and needs to be rescued. The Roomba will detangle itself even from multiple cords.
The Deebot has a remote control that can be used to start the robot. I like this feature. It also has a phone app, but since the features are about the same if you're using it in a room with a lot of obstacles, I use the remote. The docking feature on the remote works only occasionally, even if the robot is close to the dock. There is the wheel type control to change the direction it is moving. This sometimes works but it responds slowly. There is also a button to make it clean around the perimeter of the room. This starts off well, but it wanders off when it runs into an obstacle like a bookcase. The Roomba doesn't have a remote.
The Deebot has a mopping pad. Water is added to a small flattish compartment in the mop which is then attached to the bottom of the vacuum. There is also a "drying section" on the same pad. When in use it barely drips water onto the pad. It doesn't remove dirt. It seems more like a gimmick than a functional add-on. We have an iRobot Braava 240 Mopping Robot that does a much better job.
Both the Deebot and Roomba 650 will go from tile floors and other hard surfaces, up onto area carpets. Both do a good job on low pile rugs. The Deebot gets stuck on our bathroom rugs which are typical, somewhat fluffy throw rugs, and has to be rescued. The Roomba doesn't have a problem with them. They are both great for cleaning under beds and behind hard to get to spaces. The Roomba will usually go back to its dock for recharging or when the room is clean. The Deebot will only go back in a smaller room.
Both have similar size dust bins, neither of which are that big. The idea is that when you have one of these robot cleaners they vacuum a lot more often than you would, so there is a lot less debris on the floor. And your floors always look clean! The Deebot's bin is accessible from the top rather than the bottom, like on the Roomba. I prefer the Deebot's, on the top. I think it's a little easier to empty as well.
Both robots work on medium height wall to wall carpeting. The Roomba picks up more pet hair than the Deebot and with fewer passes. Both will avoid "cliffs" or steps on hard surfaces without going over the edge. The Roomba will also avoid going off the edge of carpeted stairs. The Deebot seems to have suicidal tendencies when it comes to carpeted stairs. When testing it ran over the edge twice, fortunately with me there to catch it. The second time it fell upside down into my hands. So only the Roomba can be trusted in the upstairs hall!
Both can be scheduled to vacuum. I haven't had the need to schedule either and prefer to use them as needed. The Deebot has turned itself on twice so far at odd times. Once we found it in the morning, stuck under a shelf with a dead battery. Now we turn the switch off underneath once it's charged, to avoid that problem.
Because of the short battery life and needing to be rescued often, the Deebot is more useful in smaller sized rooms without too many cords or obstacles. It needs more supervision because it often gets stuck. The Roomba doesn't get stuck very often. It uses virtual walls which are much easier to use than having to set up physical barriers. It has at least twice the battery life and picks up more debris. It also is quite a bit less expensive. My recommendation? Get a Room....ba.
This thing is pretty good at executing its "single room clean" algorithm, and that is what I find results in the most cleaning for the time/battery spent. The "clean edges" pattern is pretty good and the "clean spot" is pretty good, and the "random" feature flat out stinks. My home is about 50% hard floors and 50% medium pile carpet. As you can guess, it excels on hard floors because the carpet puts a harder burden on the motors so it takes more battery power, and also obvious because dirt gets into the carpet fibers and is harder to suck out.
Your expectations need to be realistic on a product like this. If you expect to push a button and not have to spend any further time cleaning your floors, you are bound to be disappointed. Just like any other vacuum, you have to clean the brushes and get the hair that wraps around the brushes out. You also have to manage the units work a little, by putting items that are going to make its job more complicated out of the way, and you will have to intervene from time to time. Lastly, this product will not replace your manual efforts in floor cleaning but will augment your efforts and add value to your efforts. Keeping expectations in mind, below are the main points:
-- Setup was straight-forward and easy.
-- The battery lasts about an hour. Your mileage will vary based on carpet amount/type and obstructions that consume battery power because of the time the device spends trying to figure a route.
-- Charge time from fully depleted (under 10%) is a couple hours
-- It comes with cleaning pads for scrubbing, but I have not tested. I wouldn't expect too much from this feature.
-- The smartphone app (I use Android) is OK, but the scheduling of cleaning tasks could be richer. You can schedule tasks and define a time and repetition (daily, only on certain days of the week, etc) but you don't get to specify what type of cleaning is done. Hopefully, it isn't that random mode.
-- The ability to manually steer the device with the remote or smartphone app is something I haven't been able to figure out.
There is a lot of room to improve the software aspects of this product, and hopefully, they will. As it stands right now, whether the product is worth its price tag is not extremely solid. If there was a desktop app that you could use to really design how this thing cleans your specific home, that would make it a slam dunk worth every penny. For example, you could define boundaries of where it can and can't go or define specific paths for your home. I would love to be able to teach the device how to get from its charger base and into another room, and then start cleaning that room, and then return to its charger base. It would be awesome to teach it how to get to every room on the floor the charger is on, and then schedule to clean each room, go back and charge, clean the next one, charge, etc. If that functionality was present, it would make the price tag completely justified.
It does not have a visual camera so that you can see what the device is doing remotely. Not sure what good it does to have the ability to "control" my device remotely if I can't see what it is doing and potentially manually steer it around an obstruction or hang up. It would raise the cost base much higher to include this, but they didn't. Again, this functionality would make it awesome and worth every penny plus a few more.
I guess it speaks volumes that I am left wishing it did more than it does at present. However, I am a technologist and an engineer, so it is my nature to think innovatively. But I can't believe no one in the R&D phases thought of these features, so there must be a reason they got cut from the design.
To end on a positive note, this device will spark interest in your kids and potentially create desire to help with house cleaning. I plan to train my pre-teen children how to set their room up and clean it with this guy, and expect that to be done every other day.
Update: August 7, 2017: Happy to report that this product has lived up to its job and has not broken down in the several weeks since purchase. I scheduled three jobs per day so am running it hard. The only issues have been around returning to the charger base. It does take a long time to find its way to the charger base, and doesn't seem to have a very streamlined program for that. I have seen it happen where it doesn't quite get all the way on the charger and therefore not charge and run itself dead, and it stays this way until someone docks it manually. I wish the charger base had suction cups to secure it to the floor. On a hard floor, the deebot does bump into it and potentially move it into an area that it can't get to. A lot of room for improvement with the docking.
