Compare to Neato's economizing by using the WiFi for control while eliminating the on-board display, replaced by the cost of the radio components.

You could not use the Virtual Guard near the dock for example. Another example of casual design in the industry, improved after long times.

Going on sale in March as 2 models, for $499 with 20x suction & $699 with 40x suction of existing robot vacuums, both can be operated either with a dedicated wireless remote, through the company’s Connected Home smartphone app or even through voice control, using Amazon’s Alexa.
