Registry Review: An In-Depth Look At iRobot Roomba i7+ with Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal


The iRobot Roomba has come a long way since its initial debut into the robotic vacuum market back in 2002. Taking the base effort out of cleaning one’s home, 16 years later, the Roomba now not only maneuvers itself without human interference, it will learn to navigate its surroundings, clean its own debris storage, and find its way home to charge for the next cycle. Does the iRobot Roomba i7+ with Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal live up to the hype? Sophisticated Weddings puts it to the test to see if the latest development from iRobot is the revolution in home cleaning we have been waiting for.

There was nothing to assemble out of the box; my only job was to decide on a dedicated space in my home to store the Clean Base, and download the iRobot HOME app on my smartphone. It was a matter of minutes before I found an unobtrusive home for our new robotic vacuum, plugged it in, connected to Wi-Fi, and thought up a name for the unit. Eager to get started, I named her Beast in the app, feeling a bit optimistic about the impact she would have.

The first crucial element that sets the iRobot Roomba i7+ apart from its predecessors is the Imprint Smart Mapping technology found within the app, where it gets to know the home’s floor plan, offering users control over what rooms to clean and when, remembering up to ten different floor plans.

The second element that gives the Roomba a major boost is the Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal, making human contact practically irrelevant, as it cleans out its own debris storage and finds its way to the charger, for an uninterrupted job well done. With this feature, it is possible to schedule a thorough cleaning from anywhere in the w
