✅ Ecovacs Deebot 901 Review.
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).
Max suction: 1000Pa
Also includes a long 120 minute battery and systematic cleaning paths.
Using advanced home navigation, the Deebot 901 moves flawlessly through your home and won’t vacuum the same area multiple times (a common issue with earlier robot vacuums).
Ecovacs Deebot 901 Review:
The Ecovacs Deebot 901 is a true smart home, robot vacuum cleaner.
It connects straight to your home WiFi and will automatically install updates as they’re released by Ecovacs.
Through the WiFi, 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
Through the mobile app the Deebot 901 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.
Deebot 901 Review – Targeted Cleaning:
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).
Deebot 901 Review:
As one of the newer robot vacuums, the Deebot 901 comes with smart home navigation and 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 901 – Conclusion:
The Deebot 901 has some mixed reviews, but overall mostly positive buyer ratings.
Many buyers love its medium price and mobile app functionality — most robot vacuums with mobile app control are 15-25% more expensive.
Also many of the original were written before the automatic WiFi updates.
Since the end of 2018, the Deebot 901 has offered a number of new features + rolling out new features every few weeks.
If you’re in the market for a reliable robot vacuum, the Deebot 901 is worth considering.
