Neato vacuums to roll out Siri Shortcuts

Neato Robotics the robot vacuum company has announced support for Siri Shortcuts, making it easier than ever to clean your home.

The current range already can already be controlled using Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and IFTTT.

Neato robot vacuums will support a number of Siri Shortcuts starting with four different actions, which include;

  • Start cleaning
  • Pause cleaning
  • Dock / Go to home
  • Zone cleaning

While this is good news for Apple users, it appears full HomeKit functionality is unlikely to arrive, as Apple does not have a have a vacuum category.

However Shortcuts will is planned to be integrated into HomeKit when iOS 13 arrives later this year, it may mean that you could include your Neato in HomeKit automations.

With the new integration, Apple owners will instruct Neato’s range vacuums to clean in designated zones and even stay away from No-Go Lines. Neato has also confirmed the following vacuums as supported, D3, D4, D5, D6 and D7.
