How can I reliably distinguish users from robots?

We have an ecommerce shop that goes through some heavy traffic peaks at some times. We would like to move some/all of the load during these peaks to client side rendering (CSR), while also allowing robots to continue crawling our site with server side rendering (SSR) enabled only for them.

PS: The content is exactly the same for SSR and CSR.

This is basically our situation exactly: Operationalizing Node.js for Server Side Rendering - Airbnb Engineering & Data Science - Medium
