The iLIFE A8 is the newest robot vacuum cleaner from the iLIFE family. It is also a flagship machine and the first iLIFE machine equipped with mapping based on a camera sensor. After the robot builds a map, it calculates the most efficient path for cleaning. The unit has two brushes supposed to work well on carpets and bare floors to catch pet hair, dust, and dirt on its way. The bristle brush performs great on carpeted surface while the rubber one already present on the iLIFE A6 is designed to be tangle-free and works best on a hardwood floor. The voice assistant tells you what the A8 is doing or if it requires attention. In case its battery runs out but it hasn’t finished its session yet, the robot returns to the docking station to recharge and then resumes from where it left off.

Unfortunately, the iLIFE A8 doesn't have an app and thus isn't integrated with Alexa or Google Assistant.

With a price of about $300, the iLIFE A8 is one of the smartest budget devices on the market.

Pros & Cons of ILIFE A8

Mapping & Smart Navigation

This ILIFE A8 has a smart algorithm that along with a built-in camera or laser helps it build an efficient path for better navigation around the cleaning area. This function also prevents collisions with obstacles and cleans the house from 2 to 5 times faster than a robot without path planning.

Strong suction power

The powerful motor with 1200Pa suction power can clean carpeting, and catching dirt and dust from low and medium-pile carpets.

No Smartphone App / Wi-Fi Support

The cleaner does not support Wi-Fi and doesn't have a smartphone app.

Amazon Alexa Not Supported

The model is not compatible with any voice assistant such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home and cannot be controlled by voice.

Small Dustbin

The small 300ml dustbin means you have to empty it from dirt and dust more often.

HEPA filtration

The ILIFE A8 vacuum has a high-efficiency filtration system that is anti-allergen and removes up to 99.97% of particles with a size of 0.3 µm.

Doesn't have Wet Mopping Feature

This robot vacuum doesn't have a mopping feature and can sweep only.

Battery Capacity

The robot is equipped with a small 2600 mAh battery that doesn’t last as long as an average robot vacuum, but it still can run longer even if the robot doesn’t have very strong suction power.

Can be scheduled for specific time

The scheduling function allows programming of the device to clean at a convenient time.

No virtual walls

A virtual wall allows you to block the robot from going to a specific area you don't want it to go. This model does not have a virtual wall feature.

Better corner cleaning

A side brush sweeps all the dust and dirt from corners and edges and transfers it to the dustbin.
