Voice-Activated Cleaning: Effortlessly Control Your Roomba Combo j5+

Sometimes you just want to be lazy and don’t have to walk over to the Roomba and click to start it. Gone are the days of manual labor by pressing buttons to initiate cleaning sessions. With the iRobot Roomba Combo j5+ , you could now harness the strength of voice commands to direct your Roomba. Let’s explore how voice-activated cleaning works, its compatibility with popular digital assistants, and the ease it brings to your cleansing routine. Remember that if you want to mop you first have to change the container at the back of the Roomba.

How It Works

Voice-activated cleaning with the Roomba Combo j5  is easy but revolutionary. By pairing the robot with Alexa, Siri, or Google Assistant-enabled devices, you gain the possibility to instruct the machine to clean the places you want with the use of not anything other than your voice. Whether you are lying down on the sofa, cooking in the kitchen, or busy with different obligations (like counting how many books you have), you may easily control your Roomba Combo j5+  with some simple phrases “hey siri, get to thaaa choppppaaaa”, and the Roomba starts driving around.

This extensive compatibility ensures that customers can seamlessly combine their robot vacuum and mop into their present clever home ecosystem, no matter their desired digital assistant platform.

With these digital assistants like Amazon, you can shout “Tell Roomba Combo to clean the kitchen” or “Ask Roomba Combo to start vacuuming.” Similarly, Siri users can trouble instructions like “Hey Siri, inform Roomba Combo to mop the living room.” Google Assistant customers can enjoy similar capability with the aid of announcing commands together with “Hey Google, ask Roomba Combo to vacuum the bedroom.”

iRobot Roomba j5+ combo
You can set up your own favorite, which will be shown on the homepage of the app. For example (beneden 2x) downstairs 2x in the color green, cleaning everywhere (not just the kitchen, or living room, but clean it as one complete place), how many times should it be cleaned (twice in this case), and timelimit, none (you can also limit it to 1 hour max).

 

iRobot Roomba j5+ combo
For Siri there are a LOT of different options. You can tell it to clean everywhere you want it to clean (firstly you have to set up the favorites). For example beneden 2x (meaning downstairs twice). You can also tell it how to react if you say pause or back to base.

 

 

iRobot Roomba j5+ combo
Tell Siri or Google Assistant what you want it to do.

 

iRobot Roomba j5+ combo

And off you go!

 

Vacuuming Performance

When it involves vacuuming performance (which for a vacuum cleaner seems like the most important part), the Roomba Combo j5+  proves it worth. Equipped with a powerful four-Stage Cleaning System, it effectively pulls in dirt, debris, and puppy hair from all corners of your property. The proprietary Dirt Detect Technology permits the robotic to become aware of dirtier areas and prioritize cleansing them for a deeper smooth. And I have to say, honestly, the floor does feel cleaner after each session. You can feel the difference before and after. Sometimes the floor feels like there is a lot of dust, (animal)hairs on it, after a vacuum cleaning session you’d notice that it’s clean and great.

Mopping Performance

The mopping functionality of the Roomba Combo j5+  provides an additional measurement to its cleaning abilities. With the specialised microfiber pad, it efficaciously tackles footprints, dirt, and dust, leaving your hard flooring shiny and dust-unfastened.


However, it is vital to word that the mopping overall performance of the Roomba Combo j5  isn’t as advanced as better-end fashions. It on the whole affords a basic moist-fabric wipe-down rather than deep scrubbing. Additionally, the robot can also bypass regions which are exact as “no mop” zones to save you dampening carpets, limiting its effectiveness on sure ground kinds.

 

 

 

iRobot Roomba j5+ combo
The j5+ did a lot of mopping in the house. Even with kids running around, spilling stuff on the ground, it’s sometimes just easier to let the machine clean it up. You can really see that the floor is getting mopped, and… it’s not ridiculously wet (thank god)
