iRobot Roomba 692

The 692 is a robot vacuum you can control using the iRobot Home app, Amazon Alexa, or Google Assistant to clean up dirt, dust, and debris. Alexa and Assistant are for voice commands.

There is a 3-stage cleaning system with dual multi-surface brushes in order to grab dirt from hard floors and carpets. The edge-sweeping brush takes care of edges and corners.

The 692 packs an auto-adjusting cleaning head that automatically adapts its height per surface.

This is quite the smart robot vacuum. It will even suggest an extra cleaning if your area’s pollen count is high or it is the pet-shedding season!

As for navigation, the 692 has sensors to let it go under and around furniture while avoiding heights it could fall from and damage itself.

Now, if there are particularly dirty areas in your home, this is where Dirt Detect comes in. It tells your robot about those areas to clean them more thoroughly.

If the 692 is running low on battery, it redocks on its own to recharge.

Is the 692 any good?

We recommend this robot vacuum for many reasons.

First of all, the vacuum aspect is great, and it is the most important since this is a robot vacuum. Expect the 692 to clean over 90% of your debris.

As for the app, it is state-of-the-art, so you can expect to control the 692 with ease. It can be as simple or complicated as you would like it to be.

To cap off the pros, the runtime is quite generous, and 90 minutes are quite ample to clean most homes while factoring in the possibility of redocking and recharging intra-cleaning. However, that should not concern you as the 692 does all of this by itself, even when you are out and about.

Now, if there were to be any disappointments regarding the 692, let us start of with the bristle brushroll. It may tangle hair over time.

Furthermore, although not advertised for high-pile carpets, the 692 may struggle to remove finer debris from them, but this is a very niche requirement for something most robot vacuums do not even do.

Finally, there does not seem to be a mapping feature, so the 692 will not be as aware about your home layout as other mapping robot vacuums do.


The iRobot Roomba 692 is a state-of-the-art robot vacuum that should appeal to most people.
