The Roomba can switch between spot clean mode and regular clean mode, so you can set it to clean a certain troublesome spot or just the whole area.
Being a Roomba and all, the experience is pretty hands-off, the 880 model allows you to set schedules of when to start cleaning, stop cleaning, where to clean and where not to clean.
The Roomba can be remotely controlled, using the aforementioned remote control, allowing a user to interact more with the robot when necessary.
The Roomba 880 can sense the duration it requires to clean a room, going back to its charging port after it thinks it’s done with the cleaning. unfortunately, its hard to predict how long it might take the Robot to clear the area out of the box.
Virtual Walls: They act as invisible barriers, stopping the Roomba from going to places it should not be going. The Virtual Walls can also be converted into Lighthouses, allowing the Roomba to clean room after room without losing its way back to the charging dock.
Home Base: The charger that provides power to the Roomba, the main base of operation that the Roomba go to when it needs to recharge.
Remote Control: Allows the user to control the Roomba.
If you need a helping hand to assist you with cleaning around the house, the ability to schedule the timings, new improved vacuum system and extra accessories make this an excellent choice.
The issue with pet hair filling the bin up too fast and pet hair being a little troublesome, and the fact it costs S$1,298.00 are the only down sides.
The iRobot Roomba is an amazing helper to assist you in clean your floor, with added accessories to make it more efficient and useful.
