How to Map no–go ar­eas with Neato’s app

Mac|Life - - HOMELIFE -

Fill its brain

The Bot­vac needs to know the lay­out of your room be­fore you can tell it where not to go. On the main page of the app, tap the top–left icon and then No–go Lines to be­gin cre­at­ing a floor plan — the Bot­vac will do an ex­plo­ration clean.

Con­firm or­di­nance

When it’s done scop­ing out your sur­round­ings (and bear in mind that this can take a long time, depend­ing on the area you’re ex­pect­ing it to cover) the Bot­vac will re­turn to its charger and present a map for your ap­proval.

Block it off

Ap­prove the map, re­turn to the menu, and you’ll be able to drag red lines on to the map to stop the Bot­vac travers­ing. This might be door­ways you don’t want it to go through, stairs it needs to avoid, or pre­cious ob­jects.
