Will A Robot Vacuum Set off Your House Alarm?
Yes, your robot vacuum could potentially set off your house alarm, depending on what type of alarm system you are […]
Yes! Most robot vacuum cleaners have no issue with going over smaller thresholds. The average threshold is 0.5 inches (1.27 cm) and the average robot vacuum can go over 0.7 inches (1.77 cm).
Take for example the Neato D4 and D7, they have springs in the two rear wheel which it can use to crawl over the thresholds.
It’ll even continue to clean when going over the thresholds and take any loose dirt with it.
|All i Robot Roomba Models||1.6 cm (0.62 inch)|
|All Neato Models||1.9 cm (0.75 inch)|
|Eufy RobotVac 12||1.6 cm (0.63 inch)|
|Eufy RobotVac 11S||1.5 cm (0.59 inch)|
|All Roborock Models||2 cm (0.79 inch)|
|Samsung POWERbot||1.3 cm (0.5 inch)|
|Ecovacs Deepbot Ozmo||2 cm (0.78 inch)|
|Shark – ION||1.9 cm (0.75 inch)|
Curated list of maximum threshold heights for robot vacuum cleaners.
So as you can see in the table above, most robot vacuum cleaners really should have no trouble going over most thresholds and transitions to other rooms.
The models rumoured to be the best in transitioning rooms and the Xiaomi Mi Roborock models which have an excellent grip to different types of floor, both carpet, wood and stone.
The Shark – ION and Samsung POWERbot are getting some complaints about getting stuck on even small thresholds, so I’m not sure they live up to their own claimed numbers.
