Flightly Little Roomba Lost Again!

My Roomba is a little flighty! I love my Roomba and it helps keeping my house from being completely covered by pet hair, but the thing gets into the most peculiar places and then gets itself confined to that area. I used to have to search the house looking for my little vacuum helper. I’d go from room to room looking under beds, under tables, around chairs, and anywhere I could think of that this guy could squeeze into. I could literally spend 5-10 minutes looking for this thing.

I recieved an ad on Facebook for the XY Find It app and the little XY find it trackers and instantly I knew how this clever little device could save me minutes in finding my little vacuum robot. I taped my XY3 device to to my Roomba. I know it’s not very pretty, but it’s meant to save me time, not be a piece of artwork! Now, when I need the Roomba to do his job and he’s nowhere in sight, all I have to do is open up the XY Find It app on my iPhone and tell it to beep Roo (that’s the name I gave my Roomba on the app.) I can then easily find it with the high pitched beeping directing me to the correct room and location even if I can’t see Roo under the bed or behind a door. The XY3 bluetooth tracker has saved me minutes a day. Believe me, in a month or two it adds up to hours! Oh, by the way, I also have one for my keys too. It works as a great key finder as well.
