Set Cleaning Pattern Set the cleaning pattern based on floor type. Random Cleaning Pattern (default pattern)
Programmed Cleaning Pattern
Random Cleaning Pattern is the robot's default pattern and should be set when cleaning carpet. In Random Pattern, DEEBOT cleans in a straight line and changes directions when it meets an obstacle.
Programmed Cleaning Pattern should be set when cleaning bare floors. In Programmed Cleaning Pattern the robot plans the most efficient route, cleans in a back and forth straight-line pattern, returns to clean missed spots, then cleans room edges before completing the cleaning cycle.
When Programmed Cleaning Pattern is Set: * DEEBOT automatically conducts route planning when cleaning. If the robot is paused, moved manually or directed by the Remote Control during cleaning, DEEBOT will reconfigure the route and restart. Therefore, avoid using the Remote Control or moving DEEBOT manually when it is cleaning to ensure efficiency. * DEEBOT may pause temporarily to recalculate its cleaning path. This is normal. Please be patient, the frequency and duration of the pause is determined by room complexity. * If the cleaning environment contains both bare floors and carpet, barriers (for example a closed door) should be set between different floor types and cleaning patterns should be set accordingly. If both floor types are to be cleaned in one cleaning cycle, Random Cleaning Pattern should be set.
