@JourneymanGeek paint, lights action yet ?
 
Grand
Moved in ?
 
curtains tommorrow, also have a (cheap, relatively simple, fairly dumb) robo vac I need to let loose tommorrow
naw, need furniture
I made a 'mistake' and had my chair delivered to my parents place
 
We have a Eufy X8 robovac - helps a lot with the cat hair and straw from the horse yard
 
I've gotten a TP-link Tapo R10 plus...
the plus is for the 'nicer' self cleaning dock
 
10:08 AM
A robovac will find those floors easy to work with
 
yup
I tested it on mom and dad's place (which has a huge living room)
other than one escape attempt and mom going "The poor thing has been cleaning the floor for the last hour.... just... let it rest"
 
We have to be careful to close the door from the lounge into the sun room as there is a small step that it gets stuck on.
It does a fairly good job
 
Oh this went over the rails of the sliding glass door we have and almost went and investigated the kitchen
 
Downstairs apart from the sun room transition we let it roam free. Upstarirs we have a couple of virtual no go zones - in particular at the top of the stair
 
I need to look at that if my parents get one...
 
10:15 AM
The other is in front of a full length mirror - it confuses the laser
 
mine dosen't have a laser
it just bumps angrily into things
 
I think the laser helps it bump into things carefully
 
Yes
but its funnier to have a blind angry robot vac :D
(if my dad's getting one, we're getting the laser equipped version)
 
Ours has been known to eat USB cables and get stuck
 
oh man
this got stuck on an ethernet cable
and beeped angrily at me
 
10:23 AM
I only have one ethernet cable here and it is well out of reach
 
this was what the ISP laid down when they switched from cable TV to IP TV
its MOSTLY covered up but there's a bit they got lazy on
I'll tuck it up under the cabinet its running under and it should be fine
