Comments about iRobot Virtual Wall®:

Several absolutely necessary if you have an open-floor-plan house (no doors to close). Place carefully so the Roomba can't bump it from the side or back, and your Roomba will stay contained in a small enough space to be effective (AND so it can find its way back to its base!).
