Ecovacs Deebot 900/901 Vacuum.
The Ecovacs Deebot 901 is a medium price robot vacuum with mobile app functionality.
It was released last year and is starting to gain popularity online — many buyers love the mobile app controls and have given it positive reviews.
Deebot 901 uses a unique 3-stage cleaning system.
It’s able to detect the floor type and automatically increases suction when needed — very useful if you have dogs (especially ones that shed).
Battery Life: 120 minutes
Using advanced home navigation, the Deebot 901 moves flawlessly through your home and makes sure to not vacuum the same area twice.
FYI: re-vacuuming the same area was a common issue with earlier robot vacuum models
Deebot 900 vs 901:
The Ecovacs Deebot 901 is a true smart home, robot vacuum cleaner. It is offered in two models, but the Deebot 900 appears to be the more popular model.
900 model – white robotic vacuum
901 model – black robotic vacuum
It connects straight to your home WiFi and will automatically install updates as they’re released by Ecovacs.
After connecting to your home internet you can command the Deebot 901 using the mobile app.
- Tell it to start vacuuming
- Get status updates
- See which room it’s currently vacuuming
- Prioritize areas for cleaning
Ecovacs Deebot Smart Robotic Vacuum:
Through the mobile app the Deebot 900 will construct a visual of your home’s layout.
Buyers say it’s able to create the map on the first run — it maybe be a little more difficult if you have an open layout or wide doors (where rooms aren’t easy to distinguish).
However, it shouldn’t have an issue and once the map is created, you can use some of the more advanced features such as target area cleaning.
Ecovacs Deebot 900/901 Review:
As one of Ecovac’s newest updates they included a Targeted Cleaning mode.
With the targeted cleaning feature, you can tell the Deebot 901 to vacuum a specific area in your home.
Using the mobile app, draw a rectangular area you want the robot vacuum to prioritize — it can be a specific area within a room or cluster of rooms.
This feature was recently released, but so far buyers love it. In fact, many of the newest Roomba models (which sell for 2X the price, don’t offer this feature).
Equipped with detection sensors, the Deebot 900/901 is very good at scanning and avoiding obstacles.
Buyers also confirm it is excellent at cleaning without damaging furniture — it rarely gets stuck, lost, or repeats the same area.
Ecovacs Deebot 901 Robotic Vacuum:
The Deebot 900/901 is designed with the newest tech for smart home navigation mapping.
Using bottom floor sensors, it automatically knows when to increase suction — high dirt areas, carpeted areas, and for picking up pet hair.
It comes equipped with a direct suction inlet which is ideal for picking up big clumps of dog hair or long hair.
The new helix brush design also helps reach deep within the carpet.

Ecovacs Deebot 900/901 – Conclusion:
The ECOVACS 900/901 (black and white versions) certainly delivers the kind of cleaning results that you want.
Equipped with a 120 minute battery, it should be powerful enough to clean most homes.
For all its features and functions, the Deebot 900/901 is not cheap.
Despite its innovative features, compared to the ILIFE V8s Robot Vacuum and Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac it is unfortunately not affordable for most households.
However, if you are looking to splurge a little, I think it is a solid choice.
Reading buyer reviews, I see that it’s one of the most popular robotic vacuums among pet owners!
