Install Bob's Side Brush

Before Bob’s first clean, you must install his side brush, which allows him to sweep along corners, walls, and other hard-to-reach places. You will need the following materials, all of which are included inside Bob’s box: a flat head screwdriver, a short screw, and a side brush.

1. Flip Bob over onto a flat surface. Place the side brush over the empty socket on Bob’s underside.

2. Secure Bob’s side brush using the flat head screwdriver and short screw.

You may use the additional side brush and screws as spares.

Charge Bob

After installing Bob’s side brush, you must set him to charge.

1. Plug the charging adapter into the side of the charging station.

2. Place Bob on his charging station with the metal plates on his underside sitting on top of the nodes on his station.

The charging station will save its last settings for up to 8 hours after being disconnected or turned off.

Bob is Now Ready to Clean!

1. Flip his side power switch ON.

2. Then, press the play button on his cover — or AUTO on his remote — and he will clean on his default setting (Robot mode).

Standby Mode

If Bob is left idle without charging or cleaning, his screen will go blank and he will enter standby mode to preserve his battery. In standby mode, Bob will remain asleep. You can also put Bob in and out of standby mode by pressing the power button on his remote.

To get Bob back to cleaning:

1. To wake Bob, press any button on his cover or the power button on his remote.

2. Press the play button on his cover or AUTO on his remote.

To send Bob to his charging station:

1. To wake Bob, press any button on his cover or the power button on his remote.

2. Press CHARGE on his remote.
