Sit Back And Relax! Leave The Hard Work To The Neato XV-12

A Little Bit About The XV-12 By Neato Robotics
The Neato XV-12 vacuum cleaner is designed to automatically and intelligently clean homes on a daily basis, ensuring clean floors and more free time for its owners. It cleans all types of floors and carpets and is the ultimate home appliance for everyone including working adults, busy families and pet owners. The Neato XV-12 is designed to pick up dirt, debris, and pet hair and includes a specially designed brush that avoids tangling. Its automatic daily cleaning reduces contaminants like pet hair, dust and pollen that can cause allergies and asthma.

The Neato XV-12 automatic vacuum, which is available in a new Misty White color, can only be purchased through Target. In-store Target shoppers interested in seeing the new Neato XV-12 in action can simply scan the Quick Response (QR) code on the Neato box (also available below) to see its full features and functionality using their smartphones or mobile devices. The Neato QR code will be available in store and in promotional flyers during the holidays to make it even easier to see it in action.

Features Of The XV-12 Include:
  • Powerful suction: Designed as a true vacuum with a beater brush and the strongest suction available in any robotic vacuum cleaner.
  • Methodical cleaning: Come home to that "just cleaned" look. The Neato XV-12 cleans using smart path planning and a back-and-forth pattern, ensuring that it thoroughly and neatly cleans floors and carpets.
  • Scuff-free navigation: The Neato XV-12's laser-mapping technology constantly updates its internal map so it can accurately detect objects greater than four inches in height and carefully clean around them without damaging furniture and walls.
  • Low-profile access: The automatic vacuum cleaner's low profile (less than four inches high) allows it to clean under beds, sofas, and kick boards in the kitchen.
  • Smart design and large dirt bin: The Neato XV-12's D-shape is equipped with a forward-positioned wide brush allowing it to better clean the corners and edges of a room compared to other circular-shaped robots with short, centrally-positioned brushes. This industrial design allows for a larger dirt bin (660cc or .69 quarts)
  • Self-docking to re-power: After completing its cleaning, the vacuum cleaner returns automatically to its base to re-charge itself. By utilizing the charging base, the Neato XV-12 is charged and ready to go when it's needed most.
  • Cleaning scheduler: With its easy-to-use interface, customers can schedule the Neato XV-12 to clean every day automatically, keeping homes neat and healthy and carpets well-groomed.

Our Experience
With two young children, and now a dog (yep, we finally gave in, and got a puppy for the kids), the house NEEDS to be vacuumed daily now.  There's no getting around it either. By a certain time in the afternoon, every single day, I quiet literally can't take the mess anymore and have to whip out the vacuum for a cleaning overhaul on the entire house. This is a task that can take me anywhere from 35-45 minutes. Yes, it is very time consuming, and yes, I have daydreamed regularly about what I could do with all that time if someone (or something) would do it for me!

(XV-12 Charging Station And Quick Start Guide Pictured Above)
The daydream of "me" time, became a reality in our home recently with the arrival of the Neato XV-12 by Neato Robotics! The XV-12 is ready to get to work after a recommended charging period of 3 hours. The included Quick Start Card was a great help, and after just few minutes we had the XV-12 unpacked and charging on the charging station.
(Neato XV-12 Control Center Display Pictured Above)
The XV-12 has a large (easy to read and navigate) control center display. The control center allows you to customize the Language and cleaning schedule or select the "Spot Cleaning" method, while also allowing you to view the "Support Center"(which includes valuable information about the Neato Robotic Vacuum unit including-but not limited to-warranty and "help" information). We chose to use the Schedule Cleaning Feature, and set the XV-12 up to clean the house at 6:15 p.m. daily.  If we need it to clean in between scheduled cleanings (unexpected messes do occur with children in the house) I can simply press the large orange start button and it will clean the entire floor that it is on (room by room), or can also choose to "Spot Clean" a small concentrated area.

This vacuum is no “lite” cleaner either! It deep cleans the carpets and wood floors thoroughly (more so than my $700 standard vacuum cleaner). It get’s in all of those nooks and crannies that I generally tend to miss with my standard vacuum (see the above video-where it goes under the chair then around the feet of the chair). The dirt cup is super simple to empty, and the filters are incredibly easy to change (2 replacement filters included).

Folks, I have a confession to make…..I’m totally, head over heals, in-love….with the XV-12. It’s time-saving (freeing!), and has cleaned my house to absolute perfection (with two young children that’s no small feat!). Really, EVERY MOM SHOULD HAVE ONE!
