Roomba 690 is an improved version of Roomba 650 with Wi-Fi enabled which causes it to be integrated with Amazon Alexa/Google Home and a virtual wall in the box. The robot is equipped with anti-drop and anti-collision sensors that manage it to move around the room. The unit cleans carpets well picking up pet hair, dust, and dirt on its way. Along with that, Roomba 690 works great on a bare floor. The machine comes with a dirt detect sensor that recognizes the dirtiest areas then turns on maximum power to provide thoughtful cleaning.

Roomba 690 can be controlled by manually pressing its buttons on the lid or using the smartphone app. iRobot Home app allows to schedule the robot, stop and start cleaning. After the battery runs out of energy, Roomba 690 automatically returns to its dock to recharge.

Noise Level

The device is noisier (compared to other robot vacuums) when operates even though it still not as loud as an upright vacuum.
