bObsweep's Auto-Resume feature


You can set Bobsweep to automatically return to work once his charging completes. After Bobsweep finishes vacuum cleaning your home, he goes back to his Charge-up Station. If you turn on the Auto-resume on the Charge-up Station, Bob will restart working after his charge is full. Please remember to turn off this feature when you don't need it, otherwise Bobsweep will keep going back to work every time he is done charging weather it's in the middle of the day or night.

Learn how to use speed and UV buttons on bObsweep's remote control. bObsweep's speed button enables you to choose between three different speed levels for Bob to clean. UV Lamp is ON by default but you can turn it OFF using the remote to save its battery life.


use bObsweep's remote


You can use arrow buttons on bObsweep's remote to guide him in the desired direction. You need to push down the arrow button and hold it to keep Bob moving in any direction.

set bObsweep's cleaning schedule



Learn how to set bObsweep's schedule (time and days of cleaning). Bobsweep can clean at a specific time of day, up to every day of the week. You should first set bOb's time and then set his schedule. Bob will only be able to start cleaning at the scheduled time if he is on his charge up station on that day and time and has full charge. If you don't want bOb to clean your house on a specific day, make sure you have not selected that day on the charge-up station as a cleaning-day for bOb.

Important Note : Your bObsweep's brushes need to be cleaned regularly! This video demonstrates the way you can disassemble, clean, and assemble the main and side brushes of bObsweep robot vacuum cleaner. Please note that you should clean both ends of the main brush after disassembling it, as well as the holders of the main brush. Hair and dust can get tangled into the ends of the brush, specially the hexagonal part, and cause erosion of the brush and its holder, causing major damage to your dear bOb!


empty and clean bObsweep's dustbin



bObsweep's super large 1 litre dustbin allows it to clean multiple rooms in one run. This video provides instructions on how to empty bObsweep robotic vacuum cleaner's dustbin, clean it and place it back.


put bObsweep to charge: Automatic / Manual charging



bObsweep will run back to his Charge-up Station when his battery falls below 15%. Provided that his Charge-up Station is set correctly for him to dock automatically, bOb will find his own charge-up station and charge himself. You can also set bOb to go back to his charge-up station at anytime during his cleaning session using the Docking button on the remote... or simply take bObsweep and set him to charge up on his Station.

Make sure that bOb's charge-up station is placed on a flat surface at least 10cm away from the wall.
