Halo Range

Postby leonicholson » March 5th, 2019, 3:22 pm

What is the difference in halo range and Roomba compatibility between these?
(with older model having tape over lens).

The older virtual wall works with my 595, 650, 805 and 980.
Does the dual mode work also?

The dual mode VWs work with all Roombas from 570 through the 900s, i7s and e series. Earlier 500 models will also work if you can find the White OSMO (2010-06-08-1628L) the Roomba firmware is flashed to work with the newer VWs that use pulsed IR signals.

The top halo signal on the new dual mode units is weak and only used in a 3 foot range. The older models had about a 8 to 10 foot range.

Thanks.
My 980 seems to have about a 2' range from the older (1st photo) black taped ones I have.
Adequate for the dog's bowls.
(And, thanks for the old post explaining how to use as a halo).
