Smart robot that automatically cleans and stains your deck
Aside from the usual brushing and cleaning, Robodeck is an all-in-one deck care robot that also intelligently sprays stain onto your deck to renew the colors and apply sealants without resurfacing. According to the company, its stain is water-based and eco-friendly. In addition, it is suitable for all types of outdoor flooring.

A single cartridge that costs $35 is good for 500 sq. feet or 46 sq meters. The company is offering a monthly subscription plan at $20 that includes a cartridge – and where you don't need to buy the device separately.
The device comes with advanced sensors that ensure it will not fall into a pool or get stuck in a floor gap. And similar to a smart vacuum cleaners, users can also schedule or select a routine using the mobile app. Alternatively, you can connect and control it using the supported home assistants from Apple, Amazon and Google.
