You like home automation so purchased a Wyze Robot Vacuum and a Google smart speaker. However, you do not know if they can work together. Is it possible for a Wyze Robot Vacuum to connect and communicate with Google Home?
The Wyze Robot Vacuum does not support Google Assistant and, by extension, Google Home yet. However, certain other Wyze products can work with Google Home.
You should know that other robot vacuums might work with Google devices and digital platforms. Keep on reading to learn what Wyze devices support Google Home and which robot vacuums can integrate with it.
Can You Connect Wyze Robot Vacuum to Google Home?
Wyze Robot Vacuums cannot work with Google Home smart speakers or on any Google device via Google Assistant. Only the Wyze Cam v2 and the Wyze Cam Pan support Google Home Hub or a Chromecast-enabled platform.
Although the Wyze Cam devices can work on some Google devices with the help of Google Assistant, they are still not compatible with the Google Home Mini. For more information on the integration of Wyze Cam devices with Google Assistant, go here.
Which Robot Vacuums Work With Google Home?
Popular Robot Vacuums compatible with Google Home (and Alexa) include the following:
- iRobot Roomba s9+: This robot provides 22 cubic feet per minute suction and 120-minute running time. However, its dustbin only holds around 380 ml of trash. The good thing is that it is a self-emptying vacuum, so you will not have to worry about unloading it yourself.
- iRobot Roomba 690: This robot trades suction power and battery life for a bigger dustbin at almost 600 ml. It navigates without v-SLAM technology and does not have a HEPA filter. The Roomba 690 is available for nearly half the price of the Roomba s9+.
- iRobot Roomba 960: The 960 manages 13 cubic feet per minute suction and a maximum of 75 minutes of battery life. However, it has a large dustbin at over 800 ml and comes with an extra HEPA filter. Get the iRobot Roomba 960 Robot Vacuum for your house now!
- iRobot Roomba 980: The 980 is reportedly a bit loud and noisy in any mode, but it does provide a 120-minute running time once charged for 2-3 hours. It also has mapping technology more advanced than the 960. However, the dustbin size is small (400 ml), so the high price tag is difficult to justify.
- iRobot Roomba i7: With a dustbin that can hold more than 300 ml of trash and a motor with a suction power of 1800 Pa, the i7 provides good performance for a robot vacuum. The battery life is 75 minutes, which is not very high but also not bad.
- EUFY BoostIQ RoboVac 15C MAX: The RoboVac 15C is a quiet and low profile robot vacuum with powerful suction and good battery life. Its mode of navigation is random since it does have v-SLAM capabilities.
- ECOVACS DEEBOT 500: The DEEBOT 500 will deliver 13 cubic feet per minute of suction and a 110-min runtime with a 520 ml dustbin. Like the eufy RoboVac, this one also does without v-SLAM technology.
- Samsung POWERbot R9250
This robot comes with a sufficiently large dustbin of 700 ml capacity, and works for a maximum of 90 minutes once fully charged. Its suction power is 30W, and it uses Visionary Mapping Plus for navigation.
