This robot vacuum is a circular shape, it is 3.1 inches in height which is excellent for getting under furniture. It uses a brushless motor which means in layman’s terms that it can spin faster and create more power for suction. This of course is what you need so that your vacuum can pick up all kinds of debris including pet hair and work on all floor surfaces.
This Deebot N79 runs on a lithium battery which takes about 4-5 hours to charge up fully and it can run in cleaning mode for up to 100 mins, that is a good amount of run time. It comes with charging dock which can be plugged into a normal 110v-120v household outlet. The dock needs to be in an open area against a wall so it is not only easy for the vacuum to find but for it to have space to manoeuvre into position so it docks correctly onto the charging points.
To start using your Ecovacs N79 you need to add the 2 side brushes and add the filters into the dust bin and switch it on with the switch on the side of the robot and charge it up. To just set the vacuum to clean on the automatic mode you can press the auto button on the top or the auto mode button on the remote control and your vacuum will begin to clean.
The Deebot has various cleaning modes but the automatic mode is probably the one that will be used most often and what it does is move in a straight line until it detects an obstacle then it will change direction.
There is also a spot cleaning mode which is accessed by the remote control, it runs for under 3 minutes and it turns in a widening spiral. You need to place the vacuum in the centre of the spill and you can direct the vacuum to that spot using the directional buttons on the remote.
You also have an option of edge cleaning mode, if you feel that you need a bit more attention in that area of the room then just select the option on the remote and it will clean around the edge of the walls.
The Ecovacs N79 also offers a single room mode so you can shut the door and set it to single room on the remote and it will clean that room, great if you just want to target one room that is used more than others.
Lastly it has a return to dock mode which it will switch to automatically when it is running out of charge and get itself back to the charging points, if you want to do this manually just press the home button on the remote control and it will do just that.
Deebot N79 Wifi
The Deebot N79 wifi setup is as simple as downloading the ECOVACS App on your smartphone. From the app you can do everything that you can from the remote control including setting up your vacuum for scheduling. You need to set the clock on the robot then you can decide what time you want your vacuum to clean every day and then set that. You now don’t have to start your vacuum manually it will set itself off and return to the dock when it runs out of charge. The details of setting up the clock and schedule is laid out in great detail in the manual which is included in the box, there is also a section on Deebot N79 troubleshooting if you have any issues that arise.
On the base of the vacuum is a rotary brush which is designed in a v-shape for more in depth cleaning, the side brushes move the dirt into the path of this brush and the suction. The Deebot has a suite of sensors which detect a cliff edge, and objects in its path. Its pretty gentle in its action around objects although you still need to make sure that the floor is cleared as much as possible before you let it clean as it can get tangled in wiring.
