The remote control allows you to start cleaning, spot clean and edge clean.

The app lacks interactive mapping and creation of no-go zones that is something I need – it cannot learn and remember your layout.

Voice assistants

It worked well with Google Assistant. We could tell it to start cleaning, go home/go to dock and more but its more of a gimmick than useful at this time.

GadgetGuy’s take – DEEBOT 710 is a competent, lower-cost robot vacuum

It is a <$500 robot vacuum that does well on timber and tiles – not so good on carpet although that may well just be Sisal carpet I have. It will not work on longer pile.

It has excellent battery life, good persistence and is adequate for light cleaning. If it were better at edge cleaning and had software enforceable no-clean barriers, it would rate more highly.

Buy this if you have a regular space in a regular home, preferably with timber or tile floors. You will still need a stick vac to do edges and heavier carpets.

Rating this is hard. If you rate on performance for the price, it is quite good. If you rate it on performance against more expensive and accomplished robot vacuum cleaners, it is average and you will need to spend more to get what you really need.
