Description

You're just a few words away from a cleaner home. Use your voice to clean specific rooms on demand, schedule, start, stop cleaning, and more with Alexa. All connected Roomba® and Braava jet® robots are compatible with Alexa, giving you hands-free control for vacuuming and mopping.

Roomba® and Braava jet® robots with Smart Mapping technology* allow you to clean specific places in your home with your voice—making it easier than ever to clean an unexpected mess. Imprint™ Link technology* lets you add a mop to your vacuum's cleaning job - first Roomba® vacuums, then Braava jet® m6 automatically mops!

To get started, enable the iRobot Alexa skill and sign in with your iRobot® account to link your robot with Alexa. You must first create an iRobot® account and register your robot in the iRobot Home App.

Below find sample commands you can use to control your Roomba® and Braava jet® robots in your home. Use these to start, stop, pause, locate, or send your robot back to its charging station – and schedule an upcoming cleaning job with Alexa. Clean messes as they happen with our Smart Mapping robots* by using your voice to clean a specific room or send your robot straight to the mess under the kitchen table by saying "Alexa, tell Roomba to vacuum under the kitchen table”. Prior set up required in the iRobot Home App.
