The Roborock and Viomi support restricted areas and zoned cleaning, both options are essential if you want to prevent a vacuum from crossing some areas or make it work in a particular zone. 

Each of them is equipped with the LDS laser that scans the area, creating an accurate plan of the cleaning area. 

Why buying the Roborock S5? 

  1. Longer battery life. If you live in a big house, you might want a robot that works longer before it needs to recharge.
  2. Carpet boost. If you have occasional carpets/rugs, the Roborock would be better. You don't have to switch between cleaning modes manually to get extra power.
  3. Noise. If noises distract you, the Roborock would be better in your case.
  4. You own an Alexa-enabled device or Google Home.

Why buying the Viomi V2?
