Schedule the POWERbot

After setting a schedule, you'll able to nearly forget about your POWERbot and just let it do its thing. (You'll still need to empty the dustbin from time to time.) Finally, fuss-free cleaning at the touch of a button. Learn how to schedule the POWERbot to start vacuuming when you say so.

Schedules can only be set on Auto Clean mode.

Set the Time

Set the time so when you set a schedule, the POWERbot will start cleaning.

Start by pressing Clock on the remote control. Using the directional arrows, press Up to change the hour, and then press Right

Note: Use the Left or Right directional buttons to move to the previous or next setting.

Press Up to change the minutes, and then press Right. Press Up, and select AM or PM. Complete the setup by pressing Start/Stop twice. Now you're ready to set a schedule.

Set a Schedule

Set a schedule to keep your home clean at all times.

Note: If there is no input for 7 seconds during the setup, the process will be canceled.

Start by pressing Schedule on the remote control.

Note: A schedule can only be set while the POWERbot is docked on the charger. Use the Left or Right directional buttons to move to the previous or next setting.

Press Up to select either One-time or Daily, and then press Right.

Note: The selected setting's icon will blink on the display. 

  • One-Time: The schedule will run once and then be forgotten.

Now you're good to go! You can enable Energy Saving mode after setting a schedule, which is perfect if you're planning to go away. Learn more about Using Energy Saving Mode on Your POWERbot.

Note: Both One-time and Daily schedules can be active at the same time.
