The iRobot Roomba automatically cleans, seeking dirt, hair and other grime on your solid or carpeted floors. You cannot manually program the device to only clean a specific room, but you can set up iRobot Virtual Walls to keep the Roomba in a designated area. Unlike the Roomba, which sets off on a cleaning cycle as scheduled by its owner, the Virtual Walls must be powered on manually.
Slide off the battery cover located on the side of the Virtual Wall.
Insert two D batteries and reinstall the cover.
Set the Virtual wall next to the area for which you do not want the Roomba to pass, such as a doorway.
Point the Virtual Wall's iRobot logo toward the off-limits area. Imagine a straight line emanating from the logo. The Roomba does not pass the line.
Set the distance meter, located below the power button. The Virtual Wall can beam as far as eight feet.
Push the power button to activate the Virtual Wall.
Tips & Warnings
- The Virtual Wall powers off after 135 minutes.
- You must turn on the Virtual Wall manually every time the Roomba begins a cleaning cycle.
