Neato Botvac D7 Connected Features
Pet hair never quits. It hides in hard to reach places, like in dark corners and along baseboards and walls. All Neato robots come with a special D-shape design that get into those hard to clean places better than those round robots.
Many robot vacuums bump into things and move around the house randomly making it hard to get a thorough clean. Neato robot vacuums offer a better way. Using lasers, your Neato sees what’s going on and makes a really cool map of your house. This helps it navigate around furniture and even stop at stairs, cleaning in straight lines so it doesn’t miss a thing. Lasers even let your robot see in the dark.
Every home has one or two areas that never stay clean. Be it, crumbs under the dinner table or the back door where the dog tracks in dirt. That’s why your Neato D7 comes with zone cleaning. It lets you clean specific areas in your home whenever you want, or you can create a schedule to clean it regularly. Just open the Neato app and create a special cleaning zone.
A great robot should work around your life. The Neato D7 comes with virtual No-Go Lines, so you can leave your stuff where it is and tell your robot where not to go. That way it won’t get stuck. Whether it’s a room full of clothes on the floor or a place for pet bowls, set up No-Go Lines in the Neato app to block off those areas.
If you have a multi-story home to clean, you need Neato's multiple floor plans feature. Create a floor plan for each story.* Then set up No-Go Lines on every floor, so your robot stays out of trouble everywhere.** Or create special cleaning zones upstairs and downstairs.
* A maximum of three floor plans can be stored.
** Robot must start from a charge base when using No-Go Lines.
Neato D7's ultra performance filter is made of HEPA material which traps the tiny particles that pets drag in, capturing up to 99% of dust mites and allergens as small as 0.3 microns. Say goodbye to the things that make you sneeze and itch.
Perfect for even the largest homes, the Neato D7 has up to 120 minutes of battery life, which means up to 120 minutes of unstoppable cleaning.* If your robot runs low on power while cleaning, it will automatically recharge then go back where it left off to finish the job*.
*Saved floor plan required
All Neato Connected Robots Include:
Neato's unique D-shape design, allows its robot vacuums to have an extra large main brush. It's up to 70% larger than most round robot brushes allowing it to pick up more pet hair with every pass.
Use the Neato app to schedule daily cleaning, every other day, or whatever schedule works for you. Let Neato get the job done and leave your upright vacuum in the closet.
Start and stop your Neato from your phone, Apple Watch, Amazon Echo, or Google Home. It's up to you.
With the Neato D7, you’ll receive regular software updates so you'll have the latest features. Best of all, these happen right over the air—no wires, no complications.

Take your cleaning further with the Neato Botvac D7 connected. With lasers mapping and Navigation it covers more area in less time, moving around your house logically—not randomly. New zone cleaning lets you pinpoint trouble areas you want to clean more frequently. Turbo mode provides an extra powerful clean picking up debris you can't see, while the robotic D-Shape design tracks down dirt in corners and along walls better than others. The BotVac D7 is super smart, remembering multiple floor plans and letting you create no-go lines on each, so your Robot knows where not to go. And it keeps getting smarter, so you’re first to have the latest features. With up to two hours of battery life, the BotVac D7 is perfect for even the largest homes.

The D7 is quite agile when compared to the Roomba; I've watched the D7 lift its front end up to climb from tile to carpet, which is a nice trick. It doesn't always work (e.g. a shag throw rug in one bathroom bunches up when the D7 tries to climb onto it), but it often does. I'm also happy with its cleaning; picks up dust, dirt, pet hair... pretty much everything on my tile and Berber-carpeted floors. I really like its ability to realize it is low on power, head back to the base, recharge and start cleaning where it left off! It is able to clean my entire top floor (it says almost 900 square feet covered) with no recharge or only 1 recharge.
The mapping and no-go lines are killer features, especially when compared to iRobot wanting you to buy IR Beacons (or virtual walls... $60/pop for the 700-series); the beacons are also range limited (6 - 10 feet), and if you don't notice the batteries are running low (I run my Roomba when I am out of the house), the Roomba happily finds its way past the beacon and goes where you don't want it.
Now not everything is perfect with the D7, else I would've given it 5-stars. The most glaring hole is the poor documentation. The information in the package and iOS app is minimal, and there are (or were not, when I checked) a detailed Wiki, FAQ or knowledge base. It is their newest unit, but still, things like:
- Will the no-go lines be respected when running on a schedule (yes!)?
- How do you restart the D7 once it gets stuck and do so in a way that it continues cleaning vs. return to base (move it less than 2-feet, which is documented, then press once on the start button, which wasn't)?
- Do you need to do a special mapping run or will the D7 just map as it does its initial cleanings (it will map without a mapping run, but you won't be able to set no-go lines until/unless you first do a mapping run)?
- If you use the magnets to block the D7 from a room (in this case, a walk-in closet, where I did not want it rummaging through my shoes or against hanging items close to the floor), will the D7 enter that room after the mapping run when the magnets are removed (Yes! Though support told me no...)?
I also had some initial problems getting the D7 to make its initial map, but after 2 or 3 false starts (getting stuck then returning to base when I tried to free/restart it), I had my map. Then I laid down no-go lines under my desks, where I have computer cables strung. in a corner where I keep a fan plugged in, to keep it to the middle of my closet... and it WORKS GREAT! It was the process of getting there that was frustrating at times.
I do have a gripe with the filter used in the D7. The filter itself is surrounded by fine mesh. Seems like a good idea, until you find that dust gets stuck behind the mesh and cannot be cleaned out (not with a brush, vacuum or tweezers). Poor design choice, unless your goal is to sell more filters...
I've also had problems where I received different answers from different support people; usually one of them was right, but it took trial and error to figure that out.
All in all, I am happy with my D7 and would never consider getting another Roomba (not throwing the old one away, but I know where I will turn when it is time to replace it). I hope that Neato irons out the kinks/holes in their documentation. A better filter design would be nice too :)
I've used this robot for about 6 weeks, which is just outside of the return window. The vacuum itself sucks well, but every other feature is flawed, buggy, and unreliable. Neato support is poor overall. They have manpower, which is good, so your incidents are responded to, but nothing is ever fixed.
My robot has now gone from bad to not working at all. My repair request is currently being "reviewed for approval" since Neato will not send you a replacement for a brand new, very expensive robot that doesn't work. Hopefully I get approved and I can then go buy a box to ship this back to them, at which point they will try and repair it. No timeline on how long it will be gone or if I'll ever get it back. Complete waste of money and I hope to never do business with them again.
Got a replacement robot today and attempted to create the floor plan. This vacuum can't even get to 50% of a floor plan before it loses its mind. See attached photo and video of two separate occasions where it got stuck. It doesn't even try to reverse or get free, it just runs into things and spins its wheels. Either my second unit is DOA or the product is still immature and suffering from lack of quality control. Or both.
Had to send in my latest unit for repairs again. I was expecting another new unit as I've received in the past, so I could once more roll the dice on maybe getting a reliable vacuum. Opened the return package today and it is my same robot, supposedly repaired. I charged up the battery and let it loose. Two minutes in it shows the same behavior that caused the return in the first place. Not only did they just ship back my unusable robot but didn't even bother to do anything to it. The innards are dusty, just like they were when I sent it off, so clearly nothing has been done. I am still flabbergasted at this experience and yet after spending so much money I have no recourse.
All they would have to do is turn on the vacuum and let it run for a few minutes to see that it is defective. Instead they have now wasted more of my time and effort as I continually struggle to get at least some value from this underachiever.
My third full replacement has now failed. In 9 months I've had 3 new units, plus a "repaired" unit and they have all failed. They will work for a few weeks and then trouble starts and progresses until the unit just loses its mind. What a complete waste of time, money, and effort this has been. Such a miserable hunk of junk and just a miserable company to work with. I'll probably try and get this one replaced again as this will be my last chance before the warranty expires. I should have done a better job of researching product quality and not just feature set. A cool feature is worthless when the vacuum can't vacuum.

Unit arrives in the mail while I'm away at work, wife puts it to work, used it 3 times and went on holiday for 2 wks, there were learning's for sure, never connected to wifi but overall she loved it and results were positive. Got home from holiday and asked to see it do it's thing, went to start, no charge and no go even though is was docked on the charger while we were away. Reviewed troubleshooting in the manual, reread the manual, looked it up charging issues on Google and tried a few basic non-invasive tests to no avail. Paid $1000.00 for the D7 and have owned it 1 month, it has worked 3 times and now it doesn't work, went on line and registered it with Neato, S/N, personal details, proof of purchase etc and sent an e-mail to Technical Support at Neato explaining the problem. Waited 4 days and no reply, called them up, no record of the email being sent, went through a series of tests with Tech Support, reset the battery (had to remove and reinstall), tested the charger, left it 5 hrs on charge as instructed, still no charge, sent another e-mail reporting no joy, again no response. Called again today, new Tech Support person to which I had to explain the whole story again and he wants me to send an e-mail with all personal details, proof of purchase, photo of unit ID plate etc, asked why I have to do that as it was all entered when I registered the unit with the company, he told me he has no access to that information, this is getting old at this point.
Was told soon as I sent the email something would be done to resolve the issue, either a new battery or new unit, jury is out on this purchase, think the equipment is probably ok but systems in the company are ineffective and not aligned. If I don't get a call tomorrow with a very clear solution to the issues I am sending it back and expect a full refund.
So I got a deebot to use in alternance with the XV21 so it can clean close to the walls with the side brushes. The thing doesn't avoid anything. It rams into everything in its path but is somewhat quiet. Doesn't do well with cat litter. The brushes spin so fast it scatters it. So while I still had intact baseboards I bought the D7.
Just like my XV21, it doesn't ram everything in it's path. It's a tad noisy but hey, it's a vacuum!
The app works great. Love the fact that you can set it to clean only part of the house (like going around the litter box every day) and it does great at sucking up the scattered litter (eco or turbo mode,doesn't matter, it's getting in the bin). Cat hair aren't a problem.
With the XV21 I had to empty the bin every 2 runs because of all the cat hairs but with the D7, once every 3-4 runs.
Doesn't clog as easily as the XV21 as the hole in the bin is a tad bigger.
Doesn't require any magnetic strip but will still avoid them.
The entire setup was pretty easy.
Had to run the floor plan thing twice because the first time it didn't do the entire house but as been flawless since.
I love the zone feature, it takes care of my multiple areas.
The vacuum is run every day. On some days it has trouble going around the dog crate and on others it keeps banging into it for 10 or 15 minutes. Once it bangs into something at one location it should never go back to the location to try and pass. When mapping the floor it had absolutely no problem with the crate and the dog rugs. On some days the dog rugs are absolutely no problem and other days it just won’t get back onto the floor. It thinks it is a big drop like stairs.
There are no go lines which can be used to alleviate these problems but that shouldn’t be a problem in the first place. I also have four-legged barstools which it sometimes drags and sometimes it doesn’t. Sure I could try putting a no line around them but have you tried living in a house with other people as well and getting them to leave or put stuff in the correct place?
I love the vacuum but come on for this price it should do everything short of making and delivering coffee:)
It cleans well and can handle reasonably high bumps and rugs, though anything over 0.6 inches require ps a bevel or the bumpers trigger. It’s pretty persistent though and will try every possible angle and point till it gets up on accessible areas though. Once up loose threads are extracted pretty quickly so the first few cleanings are adventures. It’s also good with fur, it fills the bin even the day after the professional house cleaners come.
Noise is pretty low on eco setting, and you’ll never want more that that unless picking up coarse sand or heavy debris. In fact its vacuum noise is pretty much not objectionable even to our cats on on the phone. The real noise. Ounce is the. Pinning flappers on the brush, we have older refinished wood floors with transitions between adjacent planks so wheel rumble and flapping is louder that the blower at times. The other noise source is braking “thuds” on wood floors, it literally locks wheels instantly when it’s bumpers or no-go sensors activate. That could be fixed in software at the cost of longer stopping distance but I suspect it depends on flooring type. Still, it’s not that loud just takes awhile to realize it’s not doing any harm.
It connected to Wifi fine, seems to report disconnect with iPhone app but that seems to be our Wifi setup with repeaters, vacuum itself seems ok with them.
Setup of multiple floor plans took several days though, you really need a base for each level or you can’t use no-go lines or zones. Moving the base is not convenient, it’s taking weeks to get another but will be better once we do. So definitely order the extra with you vacuum. The catch-22 is that you need to have near perfect mapping runs, and the first few runs always are eye openers: marginal clearance causes scanner to hold back robot when it dives under things, cords and drapes that seem safe aren’t, and rugs give up loose strings to jam the brush on the first vacuuming. I would recommend buying 2 rolls of magnetic barrier tape, the unit cones with 1 shorter piece. It’s pretty much essential prep for mapping most homes. You can lay barriers loose on floor or even use bikes as barriers, secure with painters tape and take some tapes up later after the final mapping is finished and you place no-go lines using the maps as a guide. And follow instructions exactly for starting mapping run, it records maps for each cleaning but these can’t be converted to floor plans later.
The apps interface could be improved but it does work eventually. It’s pretty cryptic as to how to access certain features so the Neato website has come step by step guides. Both app and bot software have continued updates and are evolving as well. You can get it all going, just a bit of a learning curve.
There's no annoying voice. The bin is huge, 700ml. See attached picture. We have two shepherds which shed constantly and the Neato actually filled the bin. Instead of half filling and leaving hair everywhere. Plus none of the hair wrapper around the roller! First vac I've seen achieve this.
The app is also actually easy to connect - supporting modern WiFi networks. The mapping and nav worked just fine actually doing a great job of not moving objects.
Tip: Can confirm for Aus just need a Female IEC-C5 Power Cable (on some Dell laptops, plugs into the brick) and no dramas. Supports Aus voltage (240v).
El paquete vino un poco retrasado, pero ese era por la importacion (el producto fue enviado desde Florida, EE.UU.) y la información que compartió la oficina de DHL local estaba escaso.
Cuando llego el paquete, estaba bien facil de poner la estación de carga y despues de la carga inicial la aspiradora trabajo en la manera manual sin problemas.
Las problemas surgieron, cuando quería instalar la App en mi celular - la App en la tienda Apple Store para IOS no esta disponible en Mexico. Anuncian que venden el producto hasta Mexico, pero la App no se puede instalar. No se si esta disponible an Google Play - no tengo celular de Android. Asi, no puedo usar detailles como plan de piso o iniciar el proceso de limpiar de a fuera de la casa.
No alcanza la bateria para limpiar mi piso con una sola carga, pero como la descripción del producto dice que se regresa la aspiradora a su estación de carga solo para recargar las pilas y terminar el trabajo despues, no lo veia como problema. Pero despues de cuatros usos la aspiradora todavia no ha logrado de encontrar su estación de carga sola! Por eso y por la indisponibilidad de la App en Mexico, le quité una estrella. Pero la aspiradora en si me encanta
un peu bruyant mais rien de désagréable pour nous empêcher d utiliser LOTINA . ( sur nom de notre petite femme de ménage :) Je le recommande a celui qui est prêt a faire un investissement de 1,000.00 tx incluses au Canada
1- il semble avoir de la difficulté, lors des virages au 90°, à longer le coin. Pour moi, c’est très minime car par la suite, il réussit à longer le mur comme il faut.
2- J’aurais aimer pouvoir déplacer le robot sans toutefois que celui-ci devienne perdu.
Pour le reste, je recommande ce produit.
When I first purchased the unit I wasn't doing much around the house and found it did a fairly good job.
Then I started being more active around the house and apparently dared to move my kitchen table 15-20 centimetres cleaning up after dinner, which seemingly invalidated the entire houses floorplan as the table was visible to the bot when it launched from its base.
After this my experience has been basically all downhill.
After having near constant issues with the D7 getting stuck I relented and decided that my other rooms were just too chaotic and I limited it to Kitchen cleanup duties, a job my ancient Roomba had done for years fairly well.
Even with this limited duty results have been overall disappointing, with the D7 constantly getting stuck in one corner it finds impossible to navigate, ignoring no-go lines and leaving the kitchen, failing to connect to the wifi and requiring a reboot to resume operations, reversing into chairs with enough force to move them, dropping itself down a stair (just once, no idea how), and constantly sending me messages about having a bin or filter that needs cleaning despite having just cleared them.
It's very possible you could buy a D7 and have an excellent experience but in my case due to the layout of my house and small movement of furniture the unit has been a constant annoyance that does an inferior job to the braindead Roomba it replaced.
Overall a very impressive machine.
