App: Like most vacuum robots, the S6 and O950 can also be controlled and monitored via app. Both programs differ in design, but offer a variety of similar settings: Among other things, certain schedules can be defined and completed cleaning procedures and care instructions can be viewed.
Once the cards have been created, rooms can be defined and, if necessary, changed manually so that targeted cleaning is possible. With both devices it is possible to create several maps, which is especially advantageous for houses with several floors. However, this function is still in the beta phase for the S6 at the moment and can definitely be improved at this point, as the maps are partially overwritten and all settings are lost. Despite a worse rating on Amazon, the O950 has removed some of the criticisms with the FW update to version 1.7.6. You can now e.g. merge or separate zones or give names to rooms. The storage of two maps for two floors is reliably working.
You can draw no-go zones in the app for both suction robots, for the O950 you can also define non-wipe zones. What is also worth mentioning is the possibility of seeing exactly where the robot is at the moment by means of live tracking. This function is especially useful when you are on the move.
In addition, both devices can be controlled by Alexa and Google Assistant, although there is more variation in the S6's commands.
