Along with the latest Roomba 980, Roomba 960 is one of the flagship products from iRobot. The robot has a mapping that is based on a camera sensor. This technology helps the unit to create a map of an interior and build the most efficient path of cleaning. Dual Mode Virtual Wall Barrier exist to block a "no-to-go" areas. Like other Roombas, 960 has an Advanced Dirt Detect Technology that provides more thoughtful cleaning in the dirtiest places. Also the machine is equipped with a "Full Bin" indicator that tells when the dustbin have to be emptied. Double silicone brushes were designed for picking pet hair up. These are anti-tangle so you don't have to worry about wrapped hair. With Wi-Fi enabled, Roomba 960 is Amazon Alexa/Google Home integrated. The app allows to see the created map, where the robot has been, schedule it, start, stop, see notifications etc. Roomba 960 is perfect for homes with pets and small/average sized households. After its battery runs out, the machine gets back to recharge and then continue from the point it left off.

Based on consumer reviews the silicone rollers work a little bit worse on carpets than bristle ones that were in the previous models. It also sometimes gets stuck. Not suitable for big homes.
