Ecovacs Deebot 900 Review.
The Deebot 900 is a mid-price robot vacuum with mobile app control.
In terms of cleaning efficiency, the Deebot 900 uses a 3-stage cleaning system.
Deebot 900 is able to detect the floor types and will automatically increase suction power on carpets or if it senses high-dirt areas.
Battery Power: 110-mins (per charge)
Charge Time: 4-hours
Using upgraded home navigation & mapping, the Deebot 900 moves flawlessly through your home.
Buyers love that it’s efficient and doesn’t require multiple runs — it’s able to remove most debris by rolling over an area once.
Using built-in bottom sensors, it automatically knows when to increase suction — high dirt areas, carpeted areas, and for picking up pet hair.
It comes equipped with direct suction allowing it to vacuum-up clumps of dog hair or long human hair.
Deebot 900 also includes a new helix brush which lets it retrieve deep, carpet particles.
FYI: there are no differences (other than color) for Deebot 900 vs. Deebot 901
Mobile App Features:
As a true smart robot vacuum the Deebot 900 connects straight to your home WiFi.
You can have it run without using WiFi, but you won’t be able to use the mobile app or Alexa voice control feature.
Once connected, the Deebot 900 constructs a visual of your home’s layout.
Buyers say it’s able to create a full map on the first run — it maybe be a little difficult if your home has an open layout or wide doors (where rooms aren’t easy to distinguish).
However, it shouldn’t have an issue and once mapped, you can use the advanced features such as target cleaning.

Targeted Cleaning Mode:
As one of Ecovac’s newest mobile update, you’re able to do ‘targeted cleaning’ of a specific area in your home.
Viewing the layout map on your mobile phone, you simply draw a rectangle around the area you want to vacuum — It can be a specific area in a room or choose a cluster of rooms.
Buyers say it’s super easy to use — as a feature, it’s more advanced than most robot vacuums (including the newest Roomba vacuums).
Ecovacs Deebot Smart Robotic Vacuum:
The Deebot 900 has mostly positive reviews.
Buyers like its affordable price and the mobile app — it’s nice to have Ecovacs constantly rolling out new features.
If you purchased the Deebot 900 last year, the new “targeted clean” feature is like getting a brand new robot vacuum. Very few robot vacuums offer a feature like this.
Deebot 900 is perfect for anyone looking for a mobile-friendly robot vacuum.
