  • 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.

  • 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
