Features Of iRobot Roomba 675
Being a regular user of robot vacuums, I have pretty good knowledge to share with you guys. This is why I have jotted down all the features and things that you must know in advance before buying iRobot Roomba 675.
Let’s explore the features and specs of this robot vacuum to have better insights.
Roomba 675 looks like a conventional robot vacuum cleaner. Talking about other design specifications and features, this robot vacuum is around 13 inches in diameter with 3.7 inches height.
It is one of the taller robots available in the market. But still it can easily get under most of the furniture and lower surfaces. It weighs around 7 pounds which makes it extremely easy to carry (if you need to).
- Bottom Side
The bottom side of Roomba 675 encompasses two multi-surface brushes. One of these is used to pick dirt and debris, while the other is used to pull that dirt into suction channel. There is also an edge sweeping side brush which is used to provide a better cleaning for corners.
There are cliff sensors at the bottom side as well that prevent Roomba 675 from falling downstairs.
With Roomba 675, you don’t need to have hassles for setting it up. All you need is to plug the base into wall. Removing battery pull tab, just place it on the charger.
A battery is the backbone in such robot vacuums. iRobot Roomba 675 is packaged with a lithium polymer battery. The product comes with partially charged battery. But it is recommended by the manufacturer to give a 3 hour charge before starting it.
The battery of Roomba 675 lasts for more than 90 minutes (estimated 104 minutes) on a single charge. It is a good enough time to get the concentrated dirty surfaces cleaned up. As the battery gets down, the vacuum docks itself automatically to the charging base station. After finishing a task, it also automatically docks to the base.
But it is observed that sometimes the vacuum doesn’t return to the base after finishing a job. This goes a bit against iRobot Roomba 675, but still it is not that big drawback.
Looking at the performance of Roomba 675, there are plenty of features embedded in this robot vacuum. Have a look at each of them:
- Clean Smartly by Scheduling
iRobot has made this smart robot vacuum further smarter by providing scheduled cleaning option. Yes, if you are not at home the Roomba 675 can still perform cleaning around the house through this scheduled cleaning feature.

The advanced sensors incorporated in Roomba 675 offer adaptive navigation which makes this vacuum capable of traversing around floors, surfaces, edges and navigating under or around the furniture.
The plus point of this robot vacuum is its ability to get over the obstacles. It rarely gets stuck around the hindrances like curtains and can easily adapt to carpets, hard surfaces or tiled floors.
- Focuses on Heavily Dusted Places
Another exciting feature is the use of dirt detection sensor that enables the vacuum to focus on surfaces with highly concentrated dirt. This results in spotless and smart cleaning.
- Automatic Recharge
As mentioned earlier, the Roomba 675 is capable of docking itself to the charging base after finishing a job or in case of low battery. This automatic recharging feature is something that adds more to its capabilities. But it also counts as its downside as sometimes it doesn’t return to the base after finishing a job.
- Voice Support
For an efficient cleaning, the robot vacuum has a voice support feature. You can control the vacuum using Home app or through voice support using Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
iRobot Mobile App
One more feature that brings real excitement in cleaning experience is the updated iRobot Home App. This customizes the cleaning operations with its user friendly interface. The app has options like Schedule, Settings, Help and History.
The History options lets you have a detailed overview of the latest 30 cleaning jobs performed in the past 90 days. Moreover, the total number of cleaning jobs, total time spent in cleaning and total number of times the Dirt Detect feature was activated –all these stats are shown in History.
