In the schedule tab you can set actions to schedule Cleaning, Max Cleaning, Docking or Stop your Thinking Cleaner. Schedules work on all Roomba 500/600 models, even if they do not have scheduling as a standard option. To avoid confusion, Thinking Cleaner will erase all existing schedules (in your Roomba) and the internal time is synchronized with Thinking Cleaner.
In the app a schedule can be selected for each connected Thinking Cleaner. On the schedule page all schedules of all connected Thinking Cleaners on the same day are shown. Tap another day or swipe through the days to select another weekday.
A schedule can also be programmed as "Clean when i leave". If you leave the selected location within that time the time window, the Roomba will do the selected action (clean, dock, etc.).
If you tap the screen and keep your finger pressed a new schedule will be made. You can change the time, select the action and select the unit if you have multiple. To delete the action scroll down and touch delete.
You can set 4 schedules per day per unit and you have a choice between the following actions:
- MAX CLEAN
(Roomba by default measures driving distance and if no objects are detected for more than 3 times 8 meters, it will stop to avoid getting lost)
Location based schedule
To enable a location based schedule you can enable the "Clean when i leave" switch. You have to select a location and a active time period. When you leave this chosen location within that time window, the action will start.
Location based schedules are stored on your iOS or Android device only, so if you have multiple devices you will not see location based actions from other phones.
