the obstacles by using a backward motion.
※ If the HOM-BOT 2.0 is set to start cleaning at a location away from the home station, put the device on
a flat floor in order to prevent a malfunction of the obstacle detecting sensor. In addition, start cleaning
from a location where there are not any obstacles such as curtains or walls within 30 cm (11.8 in) of the
HOM-BOT 2.0.
Tip
For best results:
•B
riefly scan the area to be cleaned for big and small objects that will cause difficulty for the
HOM-BOT 2.0.
• If cleaning is started when the HOM-BOT 2.0 is at the home station, the device can rapidly
be returned to the home station as the current home position has been accurately read.
•F
or the safety of the HOM-BOT 2.0, a threshold of more than 10mm (0.4 in) cannot be
crossed.
• When the rag plate is installed, to prevent the 2nd contamination by the contaminated rag, it
cannot go over door sill of 5mm or higher.
15
HOW TO CHARGE THE BATTERY
Automatic charging
The HOM-BOT 2.0 returns to the home station at the end of a
cleaning cycle or when its battery is running low.
※ In the event that the unit returns to the Home Station due to a
low battery, cleaning will be started, after the charging, from the
nearest place of the area which has not been cleaned before.
(Page 17)
※ If HOM-BOT 2.0 is unable to dock to the home station on its first
attempt, it will try again until it docks successfully.
※ When HOM-BOT 2.0 completed all areas that it can clean, it will
return to the home station even when the battery level is not low.
※ HOM-BOT 2.0 will automatically return to the home station to recharge when the charge is low during
operation, or if left idle with no cleaning command for more than 10 minutes.
※ Do not operate HOM-BOT 2.0 on tables or desks. It will result in an injury or damage to the product when
it starts to search for the home station after 10 minutes.
