Clean up for the new year with a great deal on at top-rated robo vac: The Roomba 675 Wi-Fi-connected model is on sale for just $199 (usually $300).

While you’re off living your life, this magical machine will scoot around your home, cleaning as it goes and using sensors to avoid things like coffee tables, stairs and Fido.

It’s so smart that you can program it to go on a cleaning spree while you’re away, just by touching a button or using an easy app. Meaning, you can come back to a spotless home. Ahhh, doesn’t that sound nice?

How does the Roomba 675 work its magic? Intelligent sensors guide the robot around your home, under and around furniture and away from drop-offs like stairs. Dual rubber brushes grab dirt and debris from hardwood and carpet, while capturing up to 99 percent of mold, dust mites, pet hair, pollen and other allergens.

This robot vacuum is also a smart home device, so you can sync it to your smartphone via the iRobot Home app to control and use it while you’re away. It’ll even know which room is which! Tell it to clean your living room and bedroom one day, and kitchen another. You can clean up after your pets when you’re at work or create a schedule for touchups throughout the week. It’s even compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant for voice commands.

Saving you even more stress, the Roomba 675 recharges itself. When it’s running out of juice, it automatically finds its way back to its charging station. When it’s fully powered up again, the robot vacuum is back on patrol. Such a smart little guy!

“Love, Love, Love this Roomba! We have 3 cats and it picks up all the cat hair,” wrote a very satisfied five-star Amazon reviewer. “We have all wood and tile floors with some scatter rugs. It does a great job cleaning on all surfaces... We are seniors and it is so nice to sit in our recliners and have the Roomba do it's job. Another plus is that it will connect to our echo dot and so all we have to do is say Alexa start the Roomba. Now if they make a model that can cook, we will be the first to buy it! LOL”
