How does Spot Clean work on Botvac Connected Series robot vacuums?

You can start a spot clean by pressing the SPOT CLEAN spot_clean button on Botvac Connected or by pressing the START BUTTON twice quickly on the Botvac D3/D5 Connected robots.  Selecting Spot Cleaning sets your Neato robot to clean a 7’x7’ area (200cm x 200cm). On select models, you can also select 2-pass cleaning.

From the app:  Select the spot icon at the top of the Neato app and then click the START button in the app and your robot will start a Spot Cleaning.   Specific models also have additional features during Spot Cleaning:

2-Pass Cleaning
  • 2-PASS Spot Cleaning – the robot does 2-passes of the area first in one direction and then in perpendicular direction:
  • Small vs. Large Spot Cleaning – you can select for spot cleaning to clean a large (13’x13’ or 400cm x 400cm) or small spot (7’x7’ or 200cm x 200cm).
