Between interior and Outside cameras, fitness bands and scales, smart home sensors, and even headphones, you might think Wyze has a lot in his wallet already. But now the company wants to take over another part of your smart home, and this time they are offering a affordable $ 200 robot vacuum with tons of features.

That’s right, the Wyze robot vacuum costs just $ 199 and pre-orders are open today. If that’s all you need to know, go ahead and click on this link. But for the rest of us, here are the details that matter.
Like more and more robot vacuums, the Wyze entrance uses LIDAR to scan and map your home. These cards will come in handy because you will be using them, along with the Wyze app, to set up virtual barriers to prevent the robot from vacuuming into rooms where you do not want it.

And you can label the cards to differentiate your kitchen from your bedroom, then tell the Wyze robot vacuum to clean the room you want. It can stop what it’s doing, access the included charger, recharge, then pick up where it left off.

The vacuum cleaner uses a 3200mAh lithium-ion battery and takes a full charge in about three and a half hours. And Wyze promises that the robot vacuum cleaner has a suction power of 2100 Pascal, which places it among the most powerful robot vacuums. The dust container, accessible by opening the top, has a capacity of 550 ml.

Naturally, the only way to know if Wyze’s latest entry lives up to the impressive specs on paper is to test it, and we’ll be eager to see if that sucks – in a good way, that is. Until then you can pre-order the Wyze robot vacuum today, and the company says it will ship in January 2021.

But if you’re interested, you might want to consider going for pre-order. Wyze says the price will increase to $ 250 in January 2021 due to a new tariff. And it also offers Kickstarter-style rewards if enough people pre-order.
