The irobot 880 can easily deliver a great cleaning experience for any home. It does this by using the AeroForce Performance Cleaning System which works by combining the custom extractors built in to the irobot with a high performance acceleration airflow.

Its best point for any busy family with or without pets, is the fact that it is virtually maintenance free as it it programmed to maintain itself. It does this with its tangle free extractors, and high performance vacuum technology, that sets this model apart from the previous models.



The irobot has built in Responsive Navigation Technology,  that enables the robot to find its way around any home with absolutely no supervision. You can trust this robot to skip past any obstacle, that are lying under tables left by kids, or laundry on the floor in the bathroom.

The robot can negotiate different floor heights to go room to room, so you can sit back after a hard days work, with your feet up and a glass of wine. You can set up a virtual wall in a room till its complete using the virtual wall lighthouse.

The virtual wall lighthouses use infrared technology that will then open up once the floor has been cleaned to perfection. The roomba comes supplied with 2 Virtual Wall Lighthouses. It has special built in cliff detection technology that will stop it from tumbling down any steps in the house.

The scheduling feature on the roomba is perfect for presetting tasks for when you’re out and about at times during your busy day, or even when at home just wanting some downtime and not having to do the housework. You can preset the roomba up to 7 times a week at your convenience.

Another handy feature of the roomba is the fact that the unit returns to the docking station after its works complete, ready for recharge so you dont have to do a thing except relax.
