Sorry to hear that your robot hasn’t managed to save its map. Of course we have no way of knowing the real shape of your home, but the map looks nice and straight.
What has probably occurred in this case is that the robot has become lost at some point, but then managed to recover well enough to find its way home. This means that it cannot really trust the map that it has created.
If you copy the logs from your robot (connect to a computer via the usb connector under the dustbin lid and copy all the files that pop up) and send them to us, we can see if this is what happened.
Our suggestion here is to let the robot clean your home in sections, to see which one contains the area which confuses the robot. The robot cleaned 159 square metres, so maybe divide the home into three roughly equal areas. You can close a door, or put something on the floor in a corridor to block the robot’s passage.
The first area should be the one which contains the charger. Start the robot and then when it is finished, see if a map is available for saving.
If you get a map here, don’t save it yet since we want to grow it to include the rest of the home.
If you don’t get a saveable map here, then maybe this area is where the problem lies. Try starting in another area.
Once you have a saveable map, you can open up more of your home. The robot can start in the newly opened area (you can just put it on the floor and start it- you don't need to move the charger) but make sure that it can find its way back to the area which it previously mapped. This way the newly cleaned area should be added to the first map.
Again, if this cleaning doesn’t add to the first map, then you have probably found where the robot gets lost.
If your map grows, you can repeat this with the last section until you are happy with the map, which you can then save.
If you find the area where your robot gets lost, you can choose to maybe rearrange some furniture, or leave a door closed, to avoid this area. Once you have a good map, you can save it and add an “avoid zone” so the robot will stay out of this area by itself.
We hope this helps you to help your robot. Ideally it wouldn’t get lost in the first place- we are working on that!
As mrmegadeath says, the map is locked once you name it or add zones to it. So if you have opened up new floor space, we recommend that you erase the FloorPlan and make a new run where the robot can learn the new map. Then you lock it by naming it and adding zones, and you're back in business.
We don't recommend having overlapping CleanZones. That may create the effect you describe: When the robot starts cleaning the second one of the overlapping zones, it starts in a more or less random point inside the zone. If that point is inside a part that is already cleaned, it will stop and consider itself done. This will not happen if the CleanZones don't overlap.
Agree, works perfectly. Will replace my IFTTT integration with this until we get a fully local solution in place. Feels a bit silly to have to send command to the cloud just to start my vacuum in the same room...
Again great work!
@nekman ,thanks! I will definitely check this out. Great work!
Very nice @nekman 😊 World as expected!
@mapeje that integration integrates the Pure i9 locally on your network. A local integration requires a local password which is not set for newer versions:
Instead, I created a Home Assistant component that communicates with your Pure i9 using the cloud instead:
It ended up being sent off to be fixed, one of the sensor lasers had broken and the machine was replaced by the company due to the fault as the part couldn’t be fixed. I’m happy with the outcome and the new machine is working fine with the new app and cleaning the entire house again.
Dear Martin, thank you; the app and the Robot now works! Kind regards Simon
Due to branding reasons we have two apps available in some markets and only one of them in other markets. If you don't find the Electrolux Wellbeing you can try with AEG Wellbeing. Your account works the same and all appliances will show upp the same in both apps
Release 42.18 (and 42.19 coming soon to a robot near you) contain only fixes and improvements to existing functionality- there are unfortunately no exciting new features in these releases. All the new stuff for the moment is in the app, but we are currently working on new stuff for coming releases.
