Description

You're just a few words away from a cleaner home! Use your voice to start, stop, schedule cleaning, and more with Alexa. All connected Roomba® and Braava jet® robots are compatible with Alexa, giving you hands-free control for vacuuming and mopping. Simply tell your robot to clean – and consider it done.

Roomba® and Braava jet® robot models with Smart Mapping technology allow you to clean specific rooms or clean zones in your home with just your voice—making it easier than ever to clean up an unexpected mess. Imprint™ Link technology lets you add a mop to your vacuum's cleaning job - first Roomba® vacuums, then Braava jet® m6 automatically mops!

To get started, enable the iRobot® Home skill for Amazon Alexa and sign in to link your existing iRobot® account. You need to already have connected your robot to the iRobot® Home App.

Below are sample commands you can use to control your robots hands-free in your home.

• "Alexa, ask Braava to start mopping"
• "Alexa, ask iRobot to clean with *Rosie and *Bob"***
• "Alexa, tell Roomba to vacuum for 20 minutes"

PAUSE / RESUME
• "Alexa, tell Roomba to pause/resume vacuuming"
• "Alexa, ask Braava to pause/resume mopping"

STOP AND SEND BACK TO CHARGING STATION
• "Alexa, tell Roomba to go home"

• "Alexa, tell Braava to stop sweeping"

CLEANING SPECIFIC ROOMS, ZONES, OBJECTS, FAVORITES (works with i/j/s/m series robots; prior setup required in the iRobot Home app)

**Individual room cleaning is supported for up to 2 rooms in a single command.
***This feature requires both a Roomba® (i/j/s/900 series), and a Braava jet® (m series) to be connected to your account.
