distances around the Home Base:
• A
t least 1.5 feet (0.5 meters) on each side of the Home Base
• At least 4 feet (1.2 meters) in front of the Home Base, and at least
4 feet (1.2 meters) away from stairs
• At least 8 feet (2.4 meters) from Virtual Wall Barriers
Always keep the Home Base plugged in and make sure it is in an area
with consistent Wi-Fi® coverage to allow Roomba to receive information
via the iRobot HOME App.
Download the iRobot HOME App and connect to Wi-Fi ®:
• W

Note: Remove excess clutter from floors before cleaning (e.g. clothing, toys, etc.).
Use Roomba frequently to maintain well-conditioned floors.
To begin a cleaning cycle, press CLEAN on the robot or in the iRobot HOME App.
Pre-set your robot to automatically vacuum up to seven times per week using the Scheduling feature in the iRobot HOME App.
When Roomba returns to the Home Base after completing a cleaning cycle, it will play a series of tones to indicate successful completion of the cleaning cycle.
To pause Roomba during a cleaning cycle, press CLEAN. To resume the cleaning cycle,
press CLEAN again.

Accessories
The Dual Mode Virtual Wall Barrier
EN
(optional accessory for all models)
The Dual Mode Virtual Wall barrier keeps
Roomba in the places you want to be
cleaned — and out of the ones you don’t.
In between cleaning cycles, you can leave
the device operating in its position on the
floor. You can set your device to one of two
modes to fit your home’s cleaning needs:
Note: Under normal use, batteries will last 8-10 months. If you are not planning
on using your Virtual Wall device for an extended period of time and you would
like to store it, be sure to switch it to the “Off ” (middle) position.
Virtual Wall Mode: When the switch is in the “up” position (
), the device functions
as a Virtual Wall. This means that you can set it to block openings of up to 10 feet
(3 meters). It creates an invisible, cone-shaped barrier that only Roomba can see.
Note: This barrier gets wider as it gets further from the device (refer to illustration).

For more information, visit www.irobot.com/Roomba600
Halo Mode: When the switch is in the “down” position (
), the device
creates a protective zone that Roomba will not enter. This prevents
Roomba from bumping into items you want to protect (e.g. a dog
bowl or vase) or crossing into undesired areas (e.g. a corner or under
a desk). The Halo is invisible and reaches approximately 24 inches (60
centimeters) from the center of the device.
