The iRobot Roomba 690 is functional working through a smartphone app or voice control. It is programmed to work with smart devices like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. Roomba 690 is less expensive compared with some of the latest models, especially if you consider this vacuum has features such as WiFi and Dirt Detection in-built.
Whilst the cleaner does not have the same advanced cleaning programs that the 980 has, it is still worth its weight in value. It is one of the best vacuums for people who are on a budget.
It does not make as much noise as some of the Roomba models. It has dirt detection technology that offers more precision cleaning around the home.
It offers one click cleaning at the push of a button. Once you press the button, Roomba will whiz around your home picking up dust and dirt in its way. The button is located on the top of the vacuum interface or it can be scheduled through the iRobot Home App.
The Roomba 690 is fitted with smart sensors so it will not bump into furniture or drop from stairs. The Roomba is easy to set up and install smart devices. Once the vac has been positioned in the dock, turn it over and pull out the yellow plastic tab that is poking out from the battery. The vac does come partially charged but, it is far better to fully charge it before you use it, this prevents the robot returning to its home base and recharging half way through. For a full battery the Roomba should be left to charge for at least three hours.
The Roomba 690 utilizes a three step cleaning plan with two multi-surface brushes, a specialized edge sweeping brush and strong suction to clean everything in its path. It performs well every time lifting and pulling in dirt, dust and debris from flooring and pushing it through the suction channel.
The Roomba 690 voice controls inform you of the status of the vac and if it is charging or cleaning. Once the battery is low it will automatically return to its dock. The ‘CLEAN’ button on the top of the bot, makes this model extremely simple to use. Just press the button to begin a cleaning cycle.
The Roomba 690 is 3.7 inches in height, length 13.0 inches and width 13.0 inches and the dust canister holds up to 0.08 gallons.
