  • Works perfectly so far.
    Reviewed by Kent - February 21, 2021

    When we got our Roomba i3 we saw right away that there was at least one area that we needed to keep the vacuum away from, and that was the vertical blinds for our sliding glass door. No matter if we had the blinds open or closed, the Roomba would bash them pretty hard, and we were afraid that over time they would be damaged. So far, the Virtual Wall Barrier seems to have solved that problem completely. As long as it continues to work as it is working now, we will be very happy. $60.00 USD seemed like a lot of money for this little thing, but it has solved a pretty big problem.

  • Great helper
    Reviewed by Judyfan - February 21, 2022

    We had a large dog, with very long hair, lots of shedding. We run our Roomba 690 three times a week. Our home is 2244 sq. ft. We named the vacuum Ruby, because it is a gem. We have had it four years. It runs and runs and runs. I do have to clean the brush and roller, as well as the guide wheel frequently, due to the dog hair. In fact, I choose to clean it everyone the vacuum runs. It might take 10 minutes to clean it thoroughly, but I do the same with my canister vac. They perform better and last longer if you take care of them. If my Roomba dies, I will. buy another. They are a great vacuum and the one time I required assistance the service was outstanding.

  • Waste of money
    Reviewed by Jacs119 - November 18, 2021

    These work fine until the batteries get corroded. I've had the same issue with 2 of these. They stop working, I examine them to change the battery and discover that not only are the batteries dead, but they are also corroded inside. Remove corroded batteries, clean inside of barrier carefully with Qtips dipped in alcohol, clean battery terminals, insert new batteries and the unit doesn't work anymore. I can't imagine why batteries would corrode like that. It's not like they were being used outside. I have plenty of other devices that use batteries and don't cause the batteries to corrode when they are used up. Very disappointed with this expensive accessory.

  • A MUST-HAVE!
    Reviewed by Joanna, Busy Entreprenuer - January 9, 2017

    Our house floor plan is very open and these virtual barriers allow me to divide our floor plan into separate rooms for our Roomba to clean. We also have a large jute rug with huge tassels that aren't very kind to our Roomba. With the virtual barriers, I can just set one on each each of the rug with the invisible beam going across the tassels and the Roomba will vacuum the entire rug without even touching the tassels. So great! NOTE: Make sure the wall barrier ON/OFF button is facing opposite of the direction you intend for the barrier to be. It took me a few tries to figure out that they button is on the BACK side. NOTE: Your Roomba will come with 1 of these virtual barriers automatically, but get a few and you won't be sorry! Just remember to turn them off when you are done - just to save batteries. NOTE: Blue light only comes on when you first turn on the virtual barrier. It will go off after a few seconds, so don't think yours is broken - It's still on and is supposed to do that.

  • Useless product, robot ignores virtual wall
    Reviewed by Mark - October 7, 2020

    I placed the device to block my 600 series robot from constantly trying to go over the stairs and getting stuck on the cliff. The gap to cover is a little over 1 metre, not a large gap but the robot consistently ignores the virtual wall and gets stuck any way
