    Description

    After using the iRobot Roomba 692 Robot Vacuum for a few weeks, I am incredibly impressed with its performance. The setup was quick and easy, and I was able to connect it to the iRobot app without any issues. The run time exceeded my expectations, as it lasted almost 3 hours before needing to recharge.

    In terms of noise level, it is a bit louder than I anticipated, but it’s not unbearable. It’s just something to be aware of. The Roomba’s ability to “map” the area and remember it for future cleanings is a great feature. However, I have noticed that it tends to vacuum the same space repeatedly, even when there is another adjacent room. I occasionally have to redirect it or move it manually.

    Cleaning the vacuum is a breeze, thanks to the easy-to-empty canister. It holds a decent amount of dirt and hair, which is especially useful for pet owners. Speaking of which, it does a fantastic job of picking up pet hair. Unfortunately, I cannot personally attest to its performance on shedding dogs, as my dog does not shed.

    Overall, the iRobot Roomba 692 has made my cleaning routine much more manageable. I no longer have to constantly sweep and vacuum, and my floors have never looked better. I highly recommend this robot vacuum for anyone looking to simplify their cleaning routine.

    8 thoughts on “Effortless Cleaning and Convenience with the iRobot Roomba 692 Robot Vacuum

    1. The iRobot 675 has changed my life. I’m a mom to 4 young children living in a 1880 square foot house on a large wooded lot. My kids are outside A LOT and track in all kinds of dirt, mud, leaves, grass, etc. My husband, while I love him, is also kind of a mess and has a bad habit of not wiping his shoes and bringing in a ton of sawdust from his projects. On top of all of that, add in the fact that children under 7 really don’t know how to eat properly and drop about seven thousand crumbs per meal per child. Our floors, wood, tile, and carpet, have been a disaster for years.

      Enter the Roomba. I have been eyeing this little piece of wizardry for years and wondering if this could be the tool that could change my life. I swept and vacuumed (with a Dyson DC33) multiple times a day. I was constantly telling guests, “hey sorry about the floor but I think we’re just gross and I can never get on top of it”. Well, after finally biting the bullet I regret that I didn’t buy a Roomba years ago. I don’t have to apologize to guests and I can finally walk barefoot in my house without having 100 tiny crumbs attaching to the bottom of my feet. I love this thing more than I have ever loved any appliance or cleaning tool I have every owned.

      About half of our home is our 2 living areas, dining, kitchen, and mud room. The other half are 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms. I have a baby gate dividing the two halves which acts as a barrier that the Roomba can’t get through. I really like having that barrier and if I didn’t use that baby gate I probably would have gone with the 690 for the virtual wall but I don’t see a purpose for it for us. I run the Roomba every night in our living/eating/kitchen area after we pick up the toys and straighten up the house. This is like magic. I always WANT to have things picked up and put away but I didn’t always do that before the Roomba because we are TIRED. But I love running the Roomba so much that since we have owned this thing we have cleaned up every night since we have owned it. Magic. I run the Roomba in the bedroom/bathroom areas 2-3 times a week in our house. Our kids are a little afraid of it (I want them to be, I don’t want them to touch it, and I may have told them it will bite them) and it does make noise so between all of our napping and sleeping I don’t have as much time to run it back there. I don’t mind though, because the bedrooms do not get nearly as dirty as our living areas.

      The things I wish I would have known before purchasing:
      – It really does clean all of the floor. It picks everything up. The crumbs and leaves are gone. It doesn’t miss any part of the floor. I was afraid it would kind of get half of the floor and not the other half because it isn’t as intelligent as the higher trim lines of the Roomba. I was wrong. This thing is amazing. I heard from someone else that you shouldn’t watch the Roomba because it will just drive you crazy. This is totally true. I watch it and question every move it makes. Why did it roll right past that crumb? Why is it spending 20 minutes under that couch? Just don’t watch it! It so nice to lay in bed at night, tell it to clean from my smart phone, go to sleep, and wake up in the morning to spotless floors!
      – I have needed to clean out the dust bin after every cleaning. I read a lot of reviews that said once you get into the swing of things with your Roomba you only need to clean out the dust bin once or twice a week. That hasn’t been true for us. I’m telling you, we are gross. So if your kids are especially messy or you have really messy pets or track in a lot from being outside that might just be your reality. But that’s fine with me because emptying the dustbin is a lot easier than vacuuming my own floors!
      – It charges really quickly. I thought I’d be waiting half a day for a charge. Not so. Ours charges within an hour which is nice because I like to charge in between doing both halves of my house. With as dirty as our floors get I don’t think the Roomba could do the entire 1880 square feet on one charge.
      – Unless you really, really want the features the higher end Roombas provide you really shouldn’t look at this vacuum as a cheap item. The technology in this thing is awesome (or at least I think it is, I’m not really super techy). This is a great robot that does an amazing job and seems very durable.
      – It does make noise. My mother in law commented that she was surprised it made noise. It’s a vacuum.
      – It has changed my life. I am excited to clean my house. I am excited to pick up toys. Nothing has ever made me happier about cleaning. This thing is the real deal. I wake up to clean floors every morning and I didn’t do any of the work. Get yourself one.

    2. Es una maravilla cuando hay mascotas, limpia super bien y es muy cómoda y fácil su uso. El único pero que le pongo es que es ruidosa.

    3. Es un buen producto imagino que las generaciones posteriores son mejores ya que si levanta el polvo pero no al 100

    4. I brought this robot as a gift for my mother and the two main reasons I purchase this product was 1) my mother is not tech Savvy so I was very happy that this did not require WIFI to operate and 2) that it came with a remote control (So I thought). unfortunately, when she opened the package I come to find out there was no remote control (disappointed in myself since after reviewing the product description I realized that I may have made a mistake in thinking that it came with a remote control, again this was an oversight on my part that may have happened while was doing research on the difference robot vacuums that would best fit for my mother). Stating this we decided to give it try since on of the main points was NO WIFI NEEDED. in the box was the charging dock, charging cord, one brush, owner’s manual and of course the robot itself. it recommended to charge for 1hr before use to which we did or at least tried to but the minute we put it in the docking station five minute later the light that said it was suppose to be charging turned off we tried again by lifting and resetting on the dock but again after five minute it turned off (so assuming that it was already fully charged)pressed the clean button and it stated right up. one thing we noticed was the suction power was chefs kiss I mean I could feel the blower from across the room. Another thing we noticed was that it was compact enough to fit under our dining room table legs (odd shape table that had three pieces set together on both legs in a triangle shape, best way I can think to described it -_- sorry) anyway even with its small size it picks ups a lot dust/filth. Stating all this one of the main issues we had with it was the tendency to get stuck/tangled on either loose or frayed carpet and if you don’t keep an eye on it will destroy the carpet as once the ends get wound in the brush it will continue to pull and may very well end up destroying your rug carpet. Another small issue or maybe a quirk was once it got to the wall molding it seems to be trying to climb up on it but again it maybe how it was design to be able to get to all the nooks an crannies (again it was just odd but I thought I would mention it anyway). Last thing I wanted to say about this product was the fact that I was very simple and easy to clean, the parts (Both brushes, rubber winder, dust collection pod) came out smooth and with no hassle and can be put back in fairly easy. So because of this I would say its a fairly good product (as long as you don’t run it on frayed carpets, long loose hair, and anything that can get tangled within the brush) price wise it was a good deal since I got it during the holiday season ($175). Durability seems pretty standard as long a you keep up with the maintenance of cleaning it out after every use since its not self cleaning (we have used it about 5 times now since getting it and suction is still strong hopeful it stays that way). would recommend but still bummed out that it didn’t come with a remote and even after 4 uses it refuses to charge for more that five minute (charging light goes out -_- maybe its suppose to be that way since we are not using it through WIFI) still working through that issue (want to give it a real chance before making a decision on whether or not to send it back). hope this helps anyone reading this make a decision on whether or not you get this product for your family/household.

    5. Tengo muchos pros que contras, yo pensaba que el producto no iba a salir tan Bueno, pero de verdad que me ha sorprendido estoy enamorada del producto, me ayuda mucho, ya que en la mayoría de veces uno está muy ocupado con el trabajo, deja muy limpio, espero y deseo que me duele mucho este equipo y que si pasa algo, haya el soporte en mi país, lo malo es que tarda en ir a su base, va a todos lugares menos a la base, a veces choca de lleno con los muebles y si da como que cosa que se vaya de esa manera y otras veces lo hace con mucho cuidado.

    6. I love the simplicity of setup! Easy to hook up home base and connect to the irobot app.

      Product packaging states run time is 2 hours, but I’ve had this thing run for nearly 3 hours before it died. Purely by accident, but definitely exceeded battery life.

      It’s a little louder than I expected, nothing crazy or unmanageable, just slightly annoying when I realize it’s going.

      The first time it runs it essentially “maps” the area and does a pretty decent job remembering thereafter. One thing I have noticed is it tends to vacuum the same downstairs livingroom repetitively even though there’s another living space adjacent to it. Both spaces are connected and completely open with nothing barring it’s entry. So, once in a while I’ll redirect it or just pick it up and move it to the other room.

      Easy to clean, canister is small but holds quite a bit. Push the button to release, dump it out, return. It’s great at picking up hair (human), I have a dog but he doesn’t shed so I’m not sure about how well it works for pets. It does however do pretty great with corners.

      I would recommend it for elderly people who have a hard time vacuuming, but i would suggest setting a timer for the middle of the night as well as maybe putting a light on it for trip hazard.

      Returns to home base with ease and allows you to set timers for run times as well as additional setting/cleaning options within the app. You can also purchase all of the replacement parts through the irobot app which is incredibly convenient!

      I wish this.model had the ability for the user to “map” the areas so I could keep it away from my christmas tree skirts, but I just block them off now that the holidays are here.

      For being autonomous and small, it packs a punch.
