The D7's lidar lets the vacuum cleaner bot accurately map your entire house, including multiple floors. You can custom-edit the floor maps, easily creating virtual no-go zones anywhere in the house without barriers or lighthouses. Based on hands-on testing, Brian also pointed out that the D7 was faster and cleaned more consistently than the Roomba S9 Plus, in part because the vacuum knew the exact floorplan and could clean in straight lines rather than randomly moving about.
In addition, you can control the robot using the Neato app as a remote control and link it to Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for voice control. The battery runs for about 120 minutes between charges.
