You can add No-Go Zones and a Virtual Wall to designate areas in your home where you don’t want your robot vacuum to go.

No-Go Zones

Add rectangular zones to your smart map, which is ideal for keeping your robot vacuum away from pet bowls, carpet, clutter, or other areas where your robot vacuum has difficulty navigating.

If there is an area in your home where your robot vacuum may get stuck multiple times, adding a No-Go Zone on that area of your smart map can help.

Virtual Wall

Creates an invisible barrier that your robot vacuum won't cross, which will confine it to a particular area, and prevents it from getting too close to anything delicate or dangerous like the stairs.
