Auto Virtual Wall® - Stop Roomba from getting into off-limit areas with a quick set-up of a Virtual Wall (each Virtual Wall emits an invisible beam that Roomba will not cross.)
Remote Control - Turn Roomba on and off and steer it around the room, all from this simple remote control.
Convenient Handle - Roomba’s handle blends right into its modern design, but is easily accessible to carry Roomba from room to room.
On-Board Scheduling - Scheduling Roomba is so easy – you can set up to seven times per week for Roomba to clean, even when you’re not home!
Compact Home Base® - Everyone needs a place to rest and recharge after a job well done. Roomba is no different. When Roomba’s done cleaning or its battery is running low, it will return to its Home Base to get ready for the next job.

Compact Home Base

Make vacuuming even easier. Get a Home Base for each floor of your home. That way, when vacuuming upstairs or downstairs, Roomba is always ready to dock and recharge for its next job.
Remote Control

Roomba is a master at adapting to its environment and knowing exactly where it needs to clean. But sometimes it’s fun to take control and steer Roomba around the room yourself. Grab an extra remote now (you know how easy it is to lose track of them).
Virtual Wall Lighthouse

Living room. Kitchen. Dining room. Roomba’ multi-room navigation feature gets you clean floors throughout your home. Make sure you have enough Virtual Walls to guide Roomba from room to room.
Brush Cleaning Tool

Keeping Roomba’s bristle brush free from hair will not only optimize its cleaning performance, but also helps prolong battery life. Get one for upstairs and one for downstairs.
700 Series Replenish Kit

Your Roomba 700 Series Robot comes with everything it needs to start working, but just like any appliance, regular maintenance is necessary. This handy replenish kit includes everything you might need including extra filters, brushes and a brush cleaning tool.
Automatic Virtual Wall

Have multiple areas you want Roomba to stay out of? Purchase additional Virtual Walls to set up your off-limit areas now. And remember, Auto Virtual Walls are always on, so you don’t have to remember to turn them on and off.
Avanced Power System (APS) Battery

It’s always a great idea to keep an extra battery on hand. If you have a large home and Roomba’s battery is running low, you can just switch them out and Roomba can continue vacuuming for you.
