The RoboVac 11c appears to be the same RoboVac you know and love, but with the addition of Wi-Fi so you can control it with your smartphone or Alexa.
That brings us to the Genie, which is basically Anker’s take on the Echo Dot, but with an improved speaker, Like the Dot, it has Amazon’s Alexa assistant built right in, and you can control it from across the room with nothing but your voice. Shane got a few demo units this week, and you can read his impressions here.
If you haven’t put two and two together yet, these products are designed to work together. If you’re laying on the couch playing Rime, and don’t feel like getting up to vacuum, just yell “Alexa, ask RoboVac to start cleaning,” and the RoboVac will do your bidding. We’re living in the future.
For a limited time, if you add both products to your cart and use code KINJA823, you’ll get a whopping $54 discount at checkout. That gets you the Genie for free, plus a solid little discount on the RoboVac as well.
