How do I get Roomba to recognize my room?

Answered by Robert Flynn

To get your Roomba to recognize specific rooms, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the iRobot HOME app on your smartphone or tablet, and ensure that your Roomba is connected to the app.

2. Press and hold the Roomba icon on the main screen for a few seconds. This will open up a menu with various options.

3. Look for the “Room” section in the menu and select it. This will take you to the room selection screen.

4. On the room selection screen, you will see a list of all the rooms that Roomba has detected in your home. By default, all rooms will be selected for cleaning.

5. If you want Roomba to clean all the rooms, you can simply leave the default selection as it is. However, if you only want Roomba to clean specific rooms, you can deselect the ones you don’t want by tapping on their names.

6. Once you have made your selection, tap on the “Save” button to save your preferences. Roomba will now only clean the rooms you have selected.

It’s important to note that for Roomba to recognize specific rooms, you need to have the latest models that come with Imprint Smart Mapping technology. These models use cameras and sensors to map out your home and identify different rooms. If you have an older Roomba model, it may not have this feature and you won’t be able to specify which rooms to clean.

In my personal experience, using the room selection feature has been quite helpful. I have a two-story house with multiple rooms, and sometimes I only want Roomba to clean the main living areas on the first floor. Being able to select specific rooms saves time and ensures that Roomba focuses on the areas that need cleaning the most.

The process of getting Roomba to recognize specific rooms is fairly straightforward. Just make sure you have the right Roomba model with the necessary technology, and then follow the steps in the iRobot HOME app to select the rooms you want cleaned.
