Review of iRobot Roomba 805
We live in a world in which technology is evolving not only in manufacturing, but also innovations are needed to make every home easier. Let us introduce you to the best home helper, canceling one of the most stressful tasks of any household. iRobot Roomba 805 - a robot vacuum cleaner that cleans the premises for you whenever you want or according to a schedule set by you.
What's in the iRobot Roomba box?
The cleaning robot comes with rich equipment. In the box you will find the iRobot itself, the charging station with its adjacent power cord, main and backup filter, instructions in several languages and 2 virtual barriers, which we will mention later. We from hop.bg offer demonstration units iRobot Roomba 805 in a complete set with new filters, brush and silicone extractors. Thus, the product is no different from the brand new ones, except for a lower price. Let's move on with the review of the device.
Smaller than a standard vacuum cleaner, but just as functional
The truth is that the cleaning robot has little in common with ordinary vacuum cleaners, at least in terms of design. The model has a round shape and thanks to its height of 8 cm and a diameter of 35 cm is compact enough to clean even hard-to-reach places in your home or office. At the top of the robot are the carrying handle and the five control and adjustment buttons. In the center is the CLEAN button, which clearly indicates what it is used for, namely to manually start or stop cleaning. Below it are four other buttons, which are the key to all iRobot features and settings. They set the vacuum cleaner clock as well as its cleaning schedule. These are also the buttons that make the machine return to its charging station or clean a specific area.
They set the time and date of the device and the cleaning schedule. You command the machine to return to its charging station (Dock button) or to clean a specific area (Spot).
Vacuuming with the iRobot Roomba 805
Setting a cleaning schedule makes the Roomba 805 an indispensable helper in home cleaning. Using this feature is extremely easy - we choose days and hours during the week in which the robot to activate and press okay. For the function to work properly, the clock must be set correctly. You can also start the home assistant by pressing the Clean button. In both cases, the machine returns to its charging station when it cleans, lowers its battery, or fills its container. If you want to interrupt the process, you can simply press the Dock so that you can return the Roomba 805 to the charging station immediately.
Virtual barrier and virtual dome
The virtual wall ensures that Roomba will clean in the exact places you want and away from places you don't want. The device has two modes of operation - a virtual barrier and a virtual dome. The modes are easily changed by sliding the button and are clearly described on the device.
Virtual wall mode - is activated when its switch is in the upper position. It allows the device to function as a wall, which can only be felt by the robot vacuum cleaner. Regardless of the positioning, the device creates an invisible barrier in a certain direction with a length of up to 3 meters and does not allow Roomba to cross the other side.
Dome mode - activated when the switch is turned "Down". This gives you the opportunity to create a protected space in the shape of a circle for various items, such as a vase or pet bowls. The diameter of the circle is up to one meter and 80 centimeters.
How does the iRobot Roomba work?
To clean well, the vacuum cleaner relies on the iAdapt control system, which reads data from dozens of sensors that analyze space. They work together with 40 preset motion models, with which Roomba 805 manages to adapt adequately in the room. In this way, it handles surprisingly well the cleaning around tables, chairs and other obstacles, which it goes around on all possible sides.
The cleaning of carpets and rugs is at a very high level. The reason is in the two silicone extractors, which move against each other and pull the dirt between the fibers of the carpets. In addition, the machine also has a side rotating brush, which helps mostly in cleaning corners and high suction power to adapt to different surfaces. The Dirt Detector function detects more contaminated areas and makes the robot focus on them.
Maintenance and service of the robot vacuum cleaner
The Roomba 805 robotic vacuum cleaner is designed for everyday use and therefore needs maintenance. The manufacturer iRobot recommends that this be done once a week for an efficient cleaning process.
It is very important that the container is cleaned regularly to avoid clogging and layering of debris and dust. The air filter, sensors, front guide and side brush must also not be contaminated.
