It might be a little bit confusing to choose between the Neato Botvac Connected and Neato Botvac D5 Connected. They seem to be very similar when there is something the Botvac Connected is missing. We want to explain the main differences between the two. It would be easier to understand which one will suit your needs better.


  • The same D-shape that works better on corners and edges
  • Wide cleaning brush that covers more helping the robot to clean faster than round robots
  • LIDAR-based mapping technology. It creates an accurate map of your interior
  • Efficient navigation helps to get the job done faster
  • One side sweeper and a powerful motor that delivers strong suction
  • The same 10 cm tall body
  • 700 ml dustbin
  • Both have a magnetic tape in the box
  • Both perform about the same on hard floors and carpet surfaces
  • The app provides access to cleaning history
  • Both come with recharge & resume feature
  • These Neato vacuums also integrate with Apple Watch, Neato Chatbot for Facebook, and IFTTT.


  • Cleaning brush. The D5 Connected uses a combo brush. The Botvac Connected is equipped with a combo brush and spiral blade brush
  • Run time. The Botvac Connected's battery life is 30 minutes longer than the D5
  • The Find Me feature. When the Botvac D5 gets stuck, you can press a button in the app and locate your vacuum by the sound of the beebs. The Botvac Connected does not support this feature
  • LCD display. The Botvac Connected has a display where you can manage the robot by manually choosing commands on the screen
  • The D5 Connectes stores up to three different floor plans
  • In the Neato Robotics app, you can set an unlimited amount of "No-Go Lines" that keep a Neato from crossing specific rooms. Supported by the D5 Connected only
  • Quick Boost. This feature allows the Neato to charge itself to the level it needs to finish the cleaning cycle. It means the D5 Connected spends less time to finish the job.
