Today was my first day with any sort of robotic vacuum. I have the Eufy RoboVac 30C. Our main level is fairly large - living room, kitchen, great room are all open and connected. I'm wondering if the behavior I'm seeing is normal.
The RoboVac just sort of wanders around randomly, doesn't really stay in one room and complete the area before moving on like a human would. I have my doubts about whether this "bouncing around" is really getting things thoroughly cleaned. For example, it criss-crossed the kitchen a few times, then moved on to the next room, leaving a lot of the kitchen uncleaned. It seems like a very inefficient way to get things done - I would have expected it to work its way back and forth in parallel paths til it had covered the entire room. If it keeps switching between rooms and only doing part of each one, I don't think it'll get the entire area completely clean before it runs out of battery.
I suppose I could block off openings to make it only do one room at a time, but the whole point of buying the RoboVac was to be able to push a button and let it do the work for me, not sit there and babysit it.
Is this normal?
