The iRobot Roomba 692 was hailed by reviewers since they liked that they could control it through voice and an app, but they were not very impressed with its lack of a HEPA filter and its inability to pick up fine debris.

They also didn’t like how pet hairs would get stuck in between its brush roll.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The iRobot Roomba 692 is a mid-tier robot vacuum cleaner introduced into the market in 2020. It has an impressive battery life that can last up to 117 minutes, and with a noise output of only 64.1 decibels, it is quieter than some of the best vacuum cleaners on the market.

Its 0.35-liter dirt compartment is decent for apartment cleaning, and its build quality is also quite as good as most highly rated robot vacuum cleaners.

As you’ll also find out in our iRobot Roomba 614 review, the Roomba 692 comes with a docking station, where it will take up to 110 minutes to recharge whenever its battery gets depleted.

It also has an edge-sweeping brush to guide debris towards its beater brush, which then crushes it so that its bristle brush can pick up the fragments more efficiently.

Consensus

our Verdict

The iRobot Roomba 692 was hailed as an excellent pick for users who prefer autonomous cleaning. Product reviewers from Rtings were impressed with its 117-minute battery life, and during tests, observed that the 692 could increase suction power from 600 Pascals according to the surface type.

This allowed it to pick up 58% and 69% of large debris from low and high pile carpets easily, as well as clear 97% and 99% of large and small debris on bare floors, respectively.

Experts from Modern Castle liked that it could be paired with the iRobot app, allowing users to control it through phones. They were also able to pair it to a voice assistant like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant and get it to work through voice commands.

However, the iRobot Roomba 692 didn’t thrill testers with its inability to clear up fine debris from carpets and lack of a HEPA filter. They also felt that it was not great for cleaning pet hair since hairs would constantly get stuck in between its brush roll.

  • Good build quality
  • Low noise output
  • App and voice control
