Can the vacuum robot navigate well?
The Roomba 691/696 cleans in chaos principle like its predecessor. That is, he just goes on it until he is pending. A real system is not recognizable. As can be seen in the video but he does that pretty well. There is no place in the room uncleaned. It automatically detects heavily soiled areas and cleans them more often. The filter system for allergy sufferers is unfortunately not there. A Virtual Wall is included. This allows you to define areas where he should not suck. He then releases a radius of 50 inch around the walls. That can be very useful.
How good is the suction power
The suction capacity is in the middle range of the IRobot family. So you get exactly what you pay for. But the power is enough for normal households. If you run many animals around, then I recommend the 800 series of IRobot. Otherwise, it is the Roomba 691/ 696 is a good mittelklasse device. The volume is lower than the top models.
Is the Roomba 691 / 696 talking to Alexa?
Yes he does that and even really good. Each command is immediately recognized and forwarded. A very great feature is the mobile app. Via WLAN, you can then use your mobile phone to access the vacuum cleaner robot at any time and control it. Useful data such as the level can be easily retrieved. Or you just give him a new job.
Conclusion to the iRobot Roomba 691
The vacuum robot belongs to the middle class. The workmanship is good. Extras are there, such as the Virtual Wall. The cleaning performance is sufficient, only with high-pile carpets he has his problems. The Roomba 691 cleans apartments up to 800 ft easily. Door sills or carpets to about 0.7 inches height he overcomes with ease. If you are looking for a high-quality mid-range device and also want some extras, you can confidently access this robot. A tip from us. Also look at Ebay and compare the price. They also have new devices and you can save a lot of money.
