Multiple Roombas 1 Lighthouse

Postby leonicholson » September 20th, 2018, 2:38 pm

Just received my latest Ebay 595 Pet Series (works perfectly with new battery) and it came with an (unmentioned) integrated charger and lighthouse. :)

I currently use multiple Roomba 595's with virtual walls. How does a lighthouse respond to multiple units?

Someone else recently asked this question and I think he found the configuration was kind of clunky:

That was me. Lighthouses are a major pain with multiple roombas. Even with 1 roomba they are kinda gimmicky. Stick to your VW's.

Thanks.

Since I have rooms with dedicated vacs, the VW's do work well for me.
