“Neato’s innovation is a huge leap forward for the smart home. Alexa-enabled
Botvac Connected advances Neato’s vision of SmartLife™ —where using the latest
technology to make your life easier is the clear path to smart living,” said
Giacomo Marini, Chairman and CEO of Neato Robotics.

The smart home is quickly catching on with consumers as many see the
convenience of an intelligent connected device through which they can manage
their home. For example, Alexa is able to assist users with everything from
turning off lights to ordering a pizza. With the Neato Botvac Connected
integration, Alexa can now voice-control the Neato robot vacuum. All it takes
is a simple voice command – ‘Alexa, ask Neato to start cleaning’ – and it’s
done. Doing simple tasks is just the first step.

The possibilities are endless. Today, if the Neato Botvac Connected is already
vacuuming your floors, and you get a phone call, just say ‘Alexa, ask Neato to
pause cleaning’—and give a resume cleaning command once you are off the phone.
The combination of Neato and Alexa means you can keep doing what you are doing
and voice command your Botvac Connected at the same time so it fits into your

corners. With one of the largest brushes and dirt bins on the market, Neato
