Ecovacs Deebot N79W: Multi-Surface Powerful Robot Vacuum with App Control

Ecovacs Deebot N79W

I decided to post the Ecovacs Deebot N79W review to share this robotic vacuum’s features and my experience of using it. I’ll comment on an entry-level but still powerful device with a 3-step cleaning system, Wi-Fi connectivity, Google Home, and Alexa voice control. What else can it offer for the price?

Dimensions

Having 13.9 inches across, this model looks bulkier than most other robot vacuums. The relatively low height of 3.3 inches compensates for this issue, allowing the Deebot N79W to slide under the furniture with low clearance. The dust container’s capacity is 520ml. So, it’s small and needs to be emptied several times if the robot cleans a house with several bedrooms.

Features

The Ecovacs Deebot N79W sucks in hair, cereal, crumbs, sugar, and other large and fine debris from bare floors without leaving a particle. The same applies to thin carpets. This model needs time and power to cope with thick carpets. It does its job mostly well, leaving approximately 5% of the finest debris (sand, small crumbs, etc.). The Max mode is activated automatically to handle thick soft coverings. Consider the 110-minute battery life’s decrease while making this robot clean high-pile carpets.

The unit has a separate Edge mode to clean along the walls and basements and the Spot option to remove dirt from a particular small area. The high-efficiency filter is installed in the dustbin to catch allergens and the finest dust to keep the air fresh. In this way, there is no need to open the window during the robot’s operation.

I should mention some item’s flaws in my Ecovacs N79W review. The device moves randomly rather than following a specific path. It takes a couple of passes and still misses some dirt. So, it takes more time to clean the area than units with smart mapping need. Note that it may get stuck when the room is loaded with too much furniture and other objects. In this case, the robot starts beeping loudly to notify the problem. The robot has cliff sensors to recognize stairs. However, it often identifies black carpets as stairs and doesn’t go over them.

The robot’s control is carried out through the remote and mobile app, downloadable for Android and iOS devices. The latter requires a manual connection to Wi-Fi. The user can launch and direct the Ecovacs Deebot N79W through the app, choose mode, schedule, and send the vacuum back to the base.

Design

The white, round-shaped unit with a glossy finish has an Auto button and Wi-Fi indicator on top, just above the logo. The power switch is on the side, the IR obstacle sensors and a bumper are on the front, and the dust container is on the back. The cliff sensors, caster wheel, main wheels, 2 sweeping and 1 roller brushes are underneath. The latter has bristles, making the users clean it from tangled hair periodically.

The pack includes a cleaning tool, a couple of spare side brushes, and an extra filter.

Conclusion

The Ecovacs N79W robotic vacuum caters to the customers on a budget, those looking for a practical device with just the most essential smart features. The robot’s ability to cope with any type of surface (albeit losing power on carpets) meets the requirements of the pet owners and people with multiple rugs in the house. People with bare floors will appreciate the unit’s long battery life since no rugs will reduce it.
