It also keeps data and details of the specific rooms so that they can clean the same way and better in the future. The technology enables the device to clean the areas that you specifically want to clean. Unlike other robots, Jet M6 can distinguish different areas to be cleaned.

You can achieve this once you connect the device to your smartphone and you are using the iRobot Home app. the device will mop edges and corners within the room.

The Imprint Mapping Technology enables you to connect the device to navigate around and below objects in the room. It goes under and around furniture.

You will also need to use the voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google assistants so that the voice control is put to work.

3. Ability To Recharge By Itself

Braava Jet M6 is one device you would love to use. Unlike many other devices, this robot mop can detect low batteries while cleaning. The unique thing is that it can trace its way to the charging dock, recharge to a good battery percentage and get back to cleaning from the stop. What a feature! You don’t have to be actively present to detect that the Jet M6 battery is low and take it to recharge. This feature enables this device to work for longer periods than you thought.

How Do I Set Up My iRobot Braava Jet M6?

Setting up Braava Jet M6 is very simple. It does not need much tech know-how. It is recommended that you use the device manual to guide you. However, follow these steps for a quick set up of your Braava Jet M6:

  • Connect the charging dock to the power source.
  • Activate the robot by attaching it to the charging dock so that there is some sound that will let you know the device is awake. There will also be some ring lights that will show you the batteries are activated.
  • Once the robot is on and active, pair it with the iRobot Home app on your smartphone so that the firmware and software are up to date. If you don’t have the iRobot Home app, you can find it on the play store or app store, download the app (there could be similar apps in the play store, choose the app with more reviews and a lot of downloads) and install it, then launch it.
  • Put the drip tray. Don’t force any connection, and if the tray is not attaching, check the manual and study how to attach it as you don’t want to damage your new device.
  • Put one cleaning pad of your choice (dry for sweeping or wet for mopping) on the bottom side of your robot. Again you don’t need to force the attachment. Use the manual to learn how to attach the pad (study the pictorial tutorials). If there is a cleaning pad already attached, press the button on the front of the robot to release the pad. The robot works with one pad at a time, you cannot put both the wet and dry pad at the same time. You can switch pads based on the type of cleaning you want. 
  • Detach the water tank of your robot. Fill it with water upto the line shown in the manual. You may not need to do this if you are using a dry pad for sweeping.

How Do I Fill My Jet M6 Tank?

This is a very essential procedure that every user must know. If you are using wet pads for mopping, you must fill the tank and if the floor area is large, you might need to refill the tank more than once. You therefore must have this procedure whenever you are using the robot mop. Steps to fill your tank:

  • Open the lid by thumbing the tank and releasing the latch.
  • Get the tank out of the robot by its handle.
  • Before adding water, put 4-6 caps of cleaning solution (packed in the robot box).
  • Add warm water to the cleaning solution to fill the tank.
  • Hold the tank handle and put the tank back into the robot.
  • Thumb down the handle and place the lid as it was before.

The cleaning solution is not compulsory. You can use water only. Do not use any solution other than the one recommended by the manufacturer (you can purchase the same brand of cleaning solution).

Connecting Braava Jet M6 To iRobot Home App

Having the device connected to your smartphone will help you execute commands from the comfort of your desired location. Here is how to connect the robot to the app:

  • Put on Bluetooth on your smartphone. The connection requires Bluetooth for connection.
  • Navigate to the iRobot Home app on your phone.
  • Choose ‘Add a robot.’
  • Choose Braava Jet, in this case, Jet M6.
  • Toggle add a Braava jet and add your robot.

What Is The Price Of iRobot Braava Jet M6?

Braava Jet M6 (6110) may be significantly pricier than other previous models, but in our opinion it is worth it. The features that come with the device are excellent and save a lot of time when it comes to cleaning. For our highest traffic areas, we created a mopping schedule of 4 moppings by the Braava Jet M6, followed by 1 manual mopping by any adult in our home. We have set this schedule to make sure any corners or areas under the furniture are not missed and are caught by the person mopping every fifth time. This way we saved 80% of mopping time, and the high traffic areas in the home are always clean. 

If you are purchasing a new robot, look for the latest release as it may have more features. Some of the users have given good feedback concerning the product. Find more about its price and specs on amazon:
