Using the Tapo app, 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

With the No-Go Zones feature, you can create rectangular zones on your Smart Map, which is ideal for keeping your robot vacuum away from areas or obstacles such as pet bowls, carpet, clutter, or other locations where your robot vacuum may have difficulty navigating.

If there is an area in your home where you find your Tapo Robot Vacuum getting stuck, adding a No-Go Zone for that area can directly address this.

Virtual Wall

The Virtual Wall feature allows you to create an invisible barrier that your robot vacuum cannot cross, confining it to a particular area, and preventing it from getting too close to anything delicate or potentially dangerous obstacles like stairs.

How to Configure No-Go Zones and Virtual Wall Features

1. Tap the Menu icon on the top-right corner, then Tap “Maps”.

2. Select the map you want to edit, then tap “Zones”.

3. There will be two options available: No-Go Zones and Virtual Wall.

Adding No-Go Zones

a. To the right of “Rooms”, tap “No-Go Zones”.

b. In the bottom-right, tap “Add No-Go Zones” to add zones in areas you want your robot vacuum to avoid. Adjust the size and coverage of the rectangles as needed.

NOTE: The No-Go Zone cannot overlap with the charging station, and in general, should not be too close to the charging station.

c. Tap “Save” in the top-right corner to apply settings.

Adding A Virtual Wall

a.Tap “Virtual Wall”.

b. Tap “Add Virtual Wall” to add virtual walls so your robot vacuum only cleans within a certain area. You can adjust “Lines” as needed, as shown below.

NOTE: The Virtual Wall cannot overlap with the charging station.

c. Tap “Save” in the top-right corner to apply settings.
