Sorry guys, but all of these negative reviews of 1 star are simply because those people are not thorough enough to make sure it will work for their unit. Plenty of places and plenty of reviews it tells you correctly. I feel bad for the negative reviews for the lighthouse when for those who actually use it properly with the correct machine it works great. I needed 6 total to map out my home correctly, and they work perfectly. YOU MUST HAVE THE 780 OR 790!!!! There, clear enough for all those one stars out there....Just make sure you map out your home correctly, or chat or call their helpline, they are there for a reason!!

Unnecessarily confusing compatibility

I had done lots of research and on some parts of iRobot's website they said this would be compatible with my version of Roomba and on other parts of the website it said it would not be compatible. Very confusing. I ended up buying two of these hoping for the best and they didn't work with my model. Very disappointing, iRobot's product lineup is a mess and they are way too fragmented to ever make a purchase with confidence that it is really what you need.

The solution to rooms with many doorways

This is my third Virtual Wall Lighthouse. Because I have multiple doorways in rooms, I have strategically set these up after experimenting with different placements. You may have to do the same thing. Once you get the placement right, your little robot friend will perform flawlessly on it's mission. There is a very good explanation on how these work on the Roomba Forums here. The Lighthouse is small and about unobtrusive as it could get.

I like the way Roomba works when it's doing smaller sections, not just wandering all over the house. It may or may not clean any better, but at least you know what's finished. Lighthouse mode is perfect. I use three of these to divide the downstairs into 4 logical sections. It's the reason I bought the 780 model and I'm glad I did.

Lighthouse is a guiding light for Roomba

I just got the Roomba 560 and didn't used the lighthouse immediately. The first thing I noticed was Roomba was all over the house. I popped a couple batteries in the lighthouse and Roomba was actually cleaning based on room (vs random). Also, it helps Roomba find its way home when it's low on charge. Great stuff!

Not compatible with all 700 series

So starting from the sales web site, and picking accessories for my 700 series roomba I bought the lighthouse. Only to find that it's not compatible with all 700 series, including my 760. It will not even work as a standard virtual wall with it. I would recommend it if I could use it.

I have it set to operate every other morning at 7:30 am. I pride myself on my cleaning, however the roomba gets in places I could'nt get to. It does the job and leaves me time to do other housework. My only problem with the roomba is I've come to depend on it very much.

I recently purchased a model 770. If I had known that it would not support the virtual lighthouse, I would have considered a different model. I agree with a previous reviewer, that if the 500 series is supported, all of the 700 series should be supported as well.

Works as advertised

The lighthouse works as advertised: It helps keep Roomba in one room/area until done before allowing entry into the next zone. The virtual wall unconditional exclusion works as well. Too bad the previous reviewer commented off-topic.
