Robot vacuum cleaners have become essential devices to keep the floors of your house clean without any effort. In recent years, these appliances have become enormously popular, and today we can find them in millions of homes around the world.
If you just got one, you should know that setting up a robot vacuum cleaner does not require great technical knowledge since manufacturers manage to complete the process almost automatically. Before releasing the robot vacuum cleaner around your home, there are some things to keep in mind.
Due to the different technologies used in the navigation systems that these devices use to move around a specific environment, it is likely that a certain period of adaptation and a series of operations will be needed until the robot vacuum cleaner is perfectly tuned. Here are steps to help you configure your robot vacuum cleaner to automate its tasks.
Install the manufacturer’s app on your smartphone
Unlike the first models that hit the market, current robot vacuum cleaners are very well equipped in terms of connectivity. Beyond the power button, they hardly have physical buttons on the device itself. The reason is because most of the operation is done from an app installed on your smartphone.
Manufacturers care about making things easy for their users, so robot vacuum control apps are usually compatible with Android and iOS and are available for free in the official stores of the respective mobile operating systems.
Connect the robot vacuum cleaner to your Wi-Fi
To continue configuring the device, the next step you have to take is to connect the robot vacuum cleaner to your Wi-Fi network. This step is directly related to the previous step since, by connecting it to your Wi-Fi network, you will be able to control its operation remotely.
Optimize the work area
The navigation systems of robot vacuum cleaners have improved a lot in the last generations. Thanks to the technological advances that they equip today, they are now able to overcome all kinds of obstacles while maintaining efficient cleaning. If an obstacle is found in its way, the robot vacuum cleaner will detect it, change its course, even avoiding colliding with it. If the robot vacuum uses a laser-based navigation system, it can recalculate the cleaning route to return to work. Configuring your robot vacuum cleaner is essential for a smooth cleaning experience. You should do this immediately after buying one to avoid any complications.
