"So you / I can control it from the comfort of $wherever you like$ without having to physically go and fetch it."

But do you need to control it from wherever you like? If you drop crumbs on the floor within range of the cleaner you don't need to be able to control it from somewhere else. The control never needs to go outside your WiFi zone. Your use case is valid, it's the implementation that fails.
