About the Product
Roomba 650 does the vacuuming for you. The robot utilizes AeroVac Technology, maximizing air flow through its cleaning head to pull hair and debris off the brushes and into the bin evenly. Perfect for homes with pets or without, Roomba cleans deep to pick up dirt, hair, fur, and other debris. The newly designed larger bin requires emptying less often and the innovative composition of the robot’s longer-lasting brushes allows it to handle fibers such as hair more effectively, making maintenance quicker and easier than ever. Roomba can easily be scheduled to clean whenever you want—up to seven times per week. The included Virtual Wall confines the robot to specific rooms and areas and Roomba automatically returns to its Home Base to dock and recharge between cycles. All you have to do is press “Clean” and let the robot do the work.
The Wi-Fi® connected Roomba 690® robot vacuum uses a patented 3-Stage Cleaning System with Dual Multi-Surface Brushes, a specially designed Edge-Sweeping Brush, and vacuum suction to clean everything from small particles to large debris off your floor. Dirt Detect™ Technology recognizes concentrated areas of dirt and provides additional cleaning in those spots, and the iRobot HOME App lets you clean and schedule conveniently from anywhere, at any time. Now compatible on devices with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant. iRobot® Roomba® 690 Wi-Fi® Connected Vacuuming Robot is built on the proven Roomba 650 robot platform; now with iRobot HOME App compatibility and a sleek new design.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
iRobot Roomba 650 Automatic Robotic Vacuum
  • I ordered this Roomba for the geek factor (who doesn't want a robot vacuum?) but also the fact that it will vacuum more regularly than I do now. I was amazed after the first few days of having it. My home smelled clean.
  • The portable barrier keeps it from going down the wide, single step into our music room. I just place it down there and let it do its thing, then put it back up to do the rest of the house. I'm going to buy another one to keep the Roomba away from the pets' water bowl.
  • Has no problem moving from carpeted to non-carpeted areas (about half an inch) and vice versa, and unto rugs, bath rugs etc.
  • With a dog and this running daily, I clean the bin and the filter every day. It takes at most 2 minutes to do and this will ensure you have roomba running at top performance.
  • It's quiet on carpet but moderately noisy on wooden/hard flooring. No biggy, it's vacuuming my house for me, I can deal.
iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • The Roomba is the perfect little companion to vacuum my hardwood floors. Does a great job and even fits under the couch. Goodbye handheld vacuum and welcome to the family Roomba.
  • I have 2 dogs and vacuum everyday. Now I can go to bed and set the Roomba to vacuum at midnight and wake up in the morning with one less thing to do.
  • Works great on floors, rugs you name the surface it does it. Couldn't believe what it picked up
  • Does decend job at its scheduled time. It’s good for one surface, so if your floor is up and down it does not ride. It does not pick up bigger dirt.
  • The vacuum does good for surface dirt. It does not get everything but it does help

What customers say about "Controls"
iRobot Roomba 650 Automatic Robotic Vacuum
  • When it's done cleaning a room or low on battery, it returns to its charging station all on its own.
  • I was excited to know this model is supported by "Thinking Cleaner", a replacement faceplate for Roomba that allows you to control it from your phone over the internet or allow roomba to tie into your existing home automation system, like Vera or SmartThings.
  • May not have all the bells and whistles of he latest app driven models, but really...is that worth $600 extra dollars? This guy cleans without having to babysit. Just what I was hoping for!
  • I can't wait for some of the 980's features to become standard. I like the floor mapping and the wifi connection features.
  • Does not immediately return to charging station upon pressing the "dock" button, but wanders off and then eventually returns 10 minutes later
iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • Roomba convenience with WiFi capability for greater control.
  • I love this roomba. Works as expected. Love the wifi feature!
  • Works great, WiFi is a plus, good with pet hair!!!
  • Works great after it learns the layout of the room or area being cleaned.
  • This is nice you can set schedules, goes from room to room. The app works great too.

What customers say about "Features"
iRobot Roomba 650 Automatic Robotic Vacuum
  • You can set it to vacuum while you're out of the house and come home to a clean floor.
  • The timer function works well (it starts when it's supposed to)
  • You can also gently nudge it's front bumper and it will redirect. 3. Pick up all the large stuff (leaves, paper scraps, twist ties) , just like you would a regular vacuum, because it won't pick it up.
  • Make sure you replace the removable dust bin firmly (you'll hear a small click), otherwise it might fall off the first time the Roomba goes over a heating vent.
  • Difficult to clean the brush, especially when long-haired persons live in the house. Also, emptying the dust compartment and cleaning the filter frees quite a lot of dust into the air, which I should not have.

  • Had this for a few weeks now and my wife loves it! Smart features are amazing!
  • Dust bin is small and it is not that smart but works.
  • Does great job whole house has hardwood or concrete floors filled bin first couple nights then less to be picked up each night
  • Also I've go surprised by the amount of dirt to be taken out of the bin after each cleaning. Took me quite some time to remove all the hair. The provided tool was pretty helpful though.
  • It has not scratched anything (the bumper works very well), the bristles are very gentle on the hardwood floor and hasn't toppled anything.
