Technology And Features :
The iRobot Roomba 695 is an intelligent household cleaning gadget. It is Wi-Fi-enabled and super easy to operate. You can either start it manually by pressing the control button on the machine, or access it remotely through the iRobot app. The app is available on Android and iOS smart phones. It is a hassle-free way to manage the functions of the robot. You can schedule future cleanings through the app. Up to 7 sessions per week can be planned in advance. This feature ensures your house stays clean even if you do not have the time or energy to clean it yourself. You can also schedule cleanings when you are not at home. At the allotted hour and date, the machine starts itself up and goes about its work. No reminder needed. It stops when the entire space is cleaned.
The app has other features too like monitoring the performance of the device. You can check the cleaning report. It shows you the route taken by the vacuum and the places cleaned. You can activate various cleaning modes like Spot Cleaning and Auto Cleaning. You can also watch maintenance videos on the app to get tips on how to vacuum better.
The best thing about the Roomba 695 is that it has voice integration. It is a smart home appliance powered by Artificial Intelligence and the Internet. It is compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, and can be accessed and controlled through voice commands.
The Roomba 695 has iAdapt Navigation for seamless room-to-room movement. It consists of a full suite of intuitive sensors the guide its path under and around furniture. It enables the machine to access secluded corners and edges that remain hidden under beds and couches.
The appliance has Dirt Detect sensors that send a signal when it rolls over a high-dirt area. The machine then fires up its cleaning intensity and sweeps the area more vigorously. This function comes in handy in high-traffic zones like corridors and lobbies, and places that tend to gathers a lot of dirt like kitchen floors.
The Roomba has Cliff Detect sensors that prevent it from tumbling down stairs. These sensors are located at the base of the vacuum. They constantly measure the distance between the floor and the bottom of the device. If the distance suddenly goes up, the device stops and redirects itself. This way it avoids drops and stairs without any human supervision. Also, the vacuum avoids clutter and cleans around it. It changes course when it approaches random objects lying on the floor, even toddlers playing on the rug.
The gadget has something called Auto-Adjust Cleaning Head. This function automatically adjusts the height of the Roomba so that the multi-surface brushes stay in close and constant contact with the surface of the floor. This is important so that no dust escapes the vacuum.
The Roomba 695 features a patented 3-Stage Cleaning System. It uses a pair of multi-surface brushes, a specially designed edge-sweeping spinning brush with long bristles and a powerful vacuum suction to pull out stubborn dirt. It first loosens the dirt, then lifts it and sucks it in. The first multi-surface brush grabs and pulls out the debris embedded in floors and carpets. The second multi-surface brush shoves the debris into the suction channel which takes the stuff in and deposits it in the garbage chamber. The 3-stage mechanism works like magic. It is extremely effective against dust, cigarette ash, pet hair, sand, crumbs and other dry litter. It works on carpets, rugs, and hardwood, laminate and tiled floors. Please note that the device is meant for dry vacuuming only. Also, it only has suction, no blower.
The robotic cleaner not just cleans the floor but also purifies air. It has integrated air filters that trap the incoming waste matter and prevents it from re-circulating in the house air. It fights indoor air pollution, eliminating fine dust and other suspended particulate matter.
The Roomba 695 is accompanied by a HomeBase charging station. When the built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery starts to dip, the vacuum returns to the charging station, docks itself and recharges its battery. It then resumes cleaning and continues the chore till the entire floor is done.
The gadget is only 3.7 inches tall and comfortably slides under furniture. It has a diameter of 13 inches and weighs 7.8 lbs. The housing is made of durable high-quality plastic. It is made extra strong to withstand accidental knocks.
