        Disappointed 700 model doesn't support

        Comments about iRobot Virtual Wall® Lighthouse™:

        From looking at reviews I am sure I would be happy with the performance of the lighthouse but unfortunately my 700 series doesn't support. Glad I looked before leaping. Very disappointed I cannot take advantage of this feature. Roomba needs to know that taking away that feature on some models was a mistake and a money loser!

              Comments about iRobot Virtual Wall® Lighthouse™:

              Sorry guys, but all of these negative reviews of 1 star are simply because those people are not thorough enough to make sure it will work for their unit. Plenty of places and plenty of reviews it tells you correctly. I feel bad for the negative reviews for the lighthouse when for those who actually use it properly with the correct machine it works great.

              I needed 6 total to map out my home correctly, and they work perfectly. YOU MUST HAVE THE 780 OR 790!!!! There, clear enough for all those one stars out there....Just make sure you map out your home correctly, or chat or call their helpline, they are there for a reason!!

                    It should be advertised that that 770 does not support virtual lighthouses. Had I known I would not have bought it. I think it would have been a good feature for all new Roomba models.

                        I had done lots of research and on some parts of iRobot's website they said this would be compatible with my version of Roomba and on other parts of the website it said it would not be compatible. Very confusing. I ended up buying two of these hoping for the best and they didn't work with my model. Very disappointing, iRobot's product lineup is a mess and they are way too fragmented to ever make a purchase with confidence that it is really what you need.

                          I bought this thinking it will work for all 700 series iRobot for obvious reasons, seeing that they cost more. But to my and the dismay of many others it doesn't! I have to return it.

                                I recently purchased a model 770. If I had known that it would not support the virtual lighthouse, I would have considered a different model. I agree with a previous reviewer, that if the 500 series is supported, all of the 700 series should be supported as well.

                                So starting from the sales web site, and picking accessories for my 700 series roomba I bought the lighthouse. Only to find that it's not compatible with all 700 series, including my 760. It will not even work as a standard virtual wall with it.

                                I would recommend it if I could use it.

                                    I like the way Roomba works when it's doing smaller sections, not just wandering all over the house. It may or may not clean any better, but at least you know what's finished. Lighthouse mode is perfect. I use three of these to divide the downstairs into 4 logical sections. It's the reason I bought the 780 model and I'm glad I did.

                                      The lighthouse works as advertised: It helps keep Roomba in one room/area until done before allowing entry into the next zone. The virtual wall unconditional exclusion works as well.

                                      Too bad the previous reviewer commented off-topic.
