The Prime Day deals are rolling, and there's no time like the present to pick up a robot vacuum. Why do all the work vacuuming your home or workspace, when you can have a robot do it? Many of them can be controlled via a smartphone app, or pre-programmed, so you can run it while you're asleep or not at home. Most of these vacuums are marked down by $100 or more (some over twice that!) for Prime Day. It's a great time to snag a deal on a handy home helper.

Which should you get?

Right now, I'd go for the iRobot Roomba 692 Robot Vacuum; it sits at a great intersection of features and price. You can schedule it to clean your house with the iRobot app on your smartphone or with your voice assistant. The three-stage cleaning system, edge-sweeping brush, and dual multi-surface brushes get into every nook and cranny. Advanced sensors and Cliff Detect let it get in and around furniture and avoid falling down stairs. After 90 minutes, the robovac will automatically head back to its dock for a recharge (good robot!)

While it cleans in all the ways you expect a robovac to, it's keeping an electronic eye out for anything or anyone that shouldn't be in your home and will let you know.
