The first, 99 Botvac D4 Connected, is aimed squarely at price-conscious shoppers. Neato hopes the second, 99 Botvac D6 Connected, will appeal to pet owners who seek tidier living spaces.
Despite a difference in pricing of 00, the D4 and D6 will share many functions and abilities. Both robots infomunicate with home Wi-Fi networks, and let you infomand them through the Neato mobile app (iOS, Android). You’ll get cleaning reports, along with maps of the ground they’ve covered in your house.
Another ability that’s made it into these two machines is something called, ‘No-Go Lines’. Previously only offered by the infopany’s flagship model, the Botvac D7 Connected, it lets you declare parts of your home forbidden. That might include rugs, power cords, kids’ rooms, etc.
The D6, however, supports multiple floor plans while the D4 does not. That’s critical for storing different maps (at the same time) for each level of a multilevel house. You get a ‘high-performance’ air filter plus a side brush with the D6. The two add-ons supposedly make the robot better equipped to deal with pet hair and dander.
