Agree! It auto-defines rooms and somehow found 4 rooms for my house but blended 2 rooms that I would want to separate. You can add blocks (don’t sweep areas) but not edit the room. I hope a map editing feature is coming.
So is there an option to update the names of the rooms and split or merge the default rooms? In my case, its showing room1,2, etc. For my living and dining and breakfast nook, it shows a single huge room. I need to divide it into separate rooms.
I fo not see any option in the app to change it. Pls help.
Using the Android beta app V2.17.6, I always get an error when trying to split a room. “Operation failed. Please check your connection try again.” The vac is connected per the rest of the app, so I don’t know why this is happening. No response to in-app feedback from Wyze so far. Any thoughts?
On Google play store, search for wyze app and on the app page, you will see a link to become beta tester. Once yoj have accepted that, you will see beta versions available for tha app that you can install!
Is there a way to add rooms manually? When i 1st started it, one of the room, being too messy, I kept closed. Then later, it cleaned that room a couple of times, but just not recognizing it as a separate room. I don’t know how I can add that as a separate room in the map?
2Wheek,heres what Wyze support said (finally). It worked!
"First, please ensure that your Wyze app is updated to its latest version. We’d also like you to try to log out to your Wyze App, force close the app, restart your mobile device and re-log in to your app. Please reset up your Map as well. It needs to start from the charging station and end at the charging station. Any interruptions between these two can prevent the map from being saved even if there is a map showing up on the app.
We recommend going ahead and mapping the home again. Please also make sure there are no obstacles in the way of rooms you would like to be mapped and that the vacuum has a full charge.
To reset your vacuum’s map:1. In the Wyze app, tap on your Wyze Robot Vacuum.
Tap the Settings gear on the top right.
Tap Reset Map, then Reset Map in the pop up.
Once complete, start a “Clean” with the vacuum starting at the charging station and returning to the charging station with no interruptions during the clean."
Thanks. I’ve force closed, rebooted, etc., but will try again. It started and ended at the dock, but it took a total of three “runs” with charging between to map my house. I really hope I don’t have to map again; with kids it’s really difficult.
I just used quick map for the first time. It did a good job and finished quickly. However, now I’m trying to put in some virtual walls but I am not able to zoom the map to a high enough magnification anymore to get the walls properly placed. I’m using the latest Android beta level app.
Thank you @stchambers! I saw the quick map, but Wyze worded it as, “tap Quick Mapping below” and I didn’t see a button for it, and the first few times I must not have been tapping right on the words “Quick mapping.” I reset the map, did a quick map that was less than 15 minutes, then I was able to split rooms successfully. And I agree as well about the level of zoom, @bob.cronin - it was difficult to place some of the splits where I wanted.
Thanks y’all - much better than waiting for Wyze support!
