iRobot HOME

The iRobot Home App is a way to remotely control and manage your Roomba autonomous vacuum cleaner directly from your mobile.

Once your robot connects to your WiFi through the iRobot HOME App, you have complete control of your device and access to a range of different features, including settings and cleaning preferences. You can order your Roomba to clean, return to its home base, empty the bin base for Roombas with a Clean Base, and set up cleaning schedules.

The app also helps you out with your device’s maintenance and troubleshooting if necessary.


iRobot files a lawsuit against SharkNinja

The iRobot Corporation announced it had filed a patent infringement order at the International Trade Commission against SharkNinja.

The lawsuit seeks to have the International Trade Commission prevent several SharkNinja robotic cleaning models from being exported to the United States due to alleged infringement of iRobot patents.

iRobot has identified four different SharkNinja products that the American corporation claims use proprietary iRobot technology. The patents include digital mapping, docking, side brush, and hardware features, clean zones, mapping runs, and map setup, as well as carpet and floor detection technology.

The lawsuit follows earlier iRobot legal action against SharkNinja in 2019, asserting infringement of other patents and false advertising.
