Wi-Fi connection issues

It is important to ascertain if the issue is with Alexa/Echo, or with the Dyson product. Try asking Alexa a general question, such as 'Alexa, what is the weather for tomorrow?'

Operate your Dyson machine manually - use the remote or controls to turn the purifier on, or press the power button on the robot.

Echo’s connectivity status is indicated by the power LED on the bottom rear of the device, with white meaning good and orange denoting no WiFi connectivity. If you are experiencing intermittent connectivity or non-existent WiFi connectivity with your Amazon Echo, here's what to try.

First, reboot your router and turn your Echo off and on again, waiting at least 10 minutes to give time for them to reconnect. Whilst waiting, you can also try re-positioning your Echo away from devices that may be interfering with the signal.

You can also reduce the congestion on your WiFi network by removing unused devices from the network.
If you have a dual-band modem, you may effectively have two networks set up. Try switching the device from the 2.4GHz frequency to the 5GHz frequency or vice-versa.

5GHz promises less interference, better speeds and a more stable connection and it is often less congested.


Alternatively, 2.4GHz can better for devices that may be further away from the router, especially if the signal has to pass through walls.

Move your Echo to higher ground, like a bookshelf, to avoid signal interference.

Installing and setting up Alexa

To get started with Amazon Echo, place the device in a central location (at least eight inches, or 20cm, from any walls and windows). Plug the power adapter into Amazon Echo and then into a power outlet. The light ring on Amazon Echo turns blue and then orange. When the light turns orange, Amazon Echo greets you.

Next, you'll need to download the Alexa app. Go to the app store on your mobile device and search for 'Alexa app'. Then select and download the app. Launch the Alexa app and ensure the account details are filled out. In the Alexa app, open the top left menu. Select 'Settings', then 'Set up a new device'. On the top of your Echo, press and hold the 'Action' button for five seconds. The light ring turns orange and Echo will connect to your mobile device.

Back on the Alexa app, select home WiFi network and enter your home WiFi password. Select 'Connect'. A confirmation message will appear in the app.

Tip: If your Amazon Echo doesn't connect to your WiFi network, unplug and then plug the device into a power outlet to restart it. If you still have trouble, reset your Amazon Echo to its factory settings and set it up again.

Try talking to Alexa. You'll find that you can now use your Amazon Echo device. To get started, say the 'wake word' (Alexa) and then speak naturally to Alexa. Once you've set-up the Dyson skill, remember to use the trigger word (Dyson), pre-empted by the command 'ask/tell'. For example, "Alexa, ask Dyson purifier to turn on".

Your Amazon Echo device is set to respond to the wake word "Alexa" by default, but you can use the Alexa app to change the wake word at any time. In the app, go to 'Settings', select your Amazon Echo device and then select 'Wake Word'.

Connecting for different product combinations:

If you have the Dyson Link app and Alexa app both installed, and your Dyson machine and Amazon Echo are both connected, but your Dyson skill is not enabled:

Ask Alexa to enable the Dyson skill, or search for Dyson in the skills section of the Alexa app. Then select the 'Enable skill' button. Allow the Alexa skill to access your Dyson Link app account. Enter your Dyson Link app account details and select 'Allow' on the confirmation screen.

If you have the Dyson Link app installed, your Dyson machine is connected but the Alexa app is not installed and your Amazon Echo is not connected:

First, check the WiFi signal strength where your Amazon Echo is positioned, by using a device known to be working. Remember to place your Amazon Echo at least eight inches away from any walls or windows, in a central location. Ensure the power adapter is plugged in and switched on.

The light ring on the Amazon Echo will turn blue then orange. When the light turns orange, Alexa greets you. Next, download the Alexa app to set-up your Amazon Echo.

In the Alexa app, open the main menu and select 'Settings' and then 'Set up a new device'. Press and hold the 'Action' button on your Amazon Echo for five seconds. The light ring will turn orange and Echo will connect to your mobile device.

Next, select your WiFi network and enter your WiFi password. Then press 'Connect'. A confirmation message will display in the app.

Controlling multiple machines

If you have more than one Alexa-controlled Dyson machine, your voice commands should make it clear which one you want to control. You can include a word like 'purifier', 'fan' or 'robot' in your command so Alexa knows which one you mean.

If you have two or more similar machines, like a purifier in your kitchen and another in your bedroom, you can assign location labels to differentiate your machines.

Navigate to your machine's settings by selecting the cog icon on your machine's status screen. From here, select 'Your machine's settings'. If you're using a purifier, select 'Room name' and choose the appropriate location. If you're using a robot, choose 'Robot name' and select a room from the predefined list.

Enable/Disable Dyson skill

If you own an Amazon Alexa-enabled device, you can control and monitor your Dyson connected machines using your voice. Simply enable the Dyson skill to do this.

To enable the Dyson skill, begin by saying the following: "Alexa, enable the Dyson skill." Alexa will respond: "OK, I've enabled the Dyson skill for you, but it requires you to link your Dyson account." Next, in the Alexa app, search for Dyson skill. Then select 'Enable' and follow the on-screen instructions to link your accounts.

To disable the Dyson skill, search for Dyson skill in the Alexa app and choose 'Disable skill'.

Alexa territories

The Dyson skill is available in the following territories:

• Australia
• Canada (English only)
• Germany
• India
• Ireland
• United Kingdom
• USA

This is due to another user connecting to your machine and taking ownership of your robot.

When adding a second user, at the end of the connection journey you will be asked if you are the robots new owner. Please select 'No, I'm just using it'. You will be able to easily control, schedule, and monitor your robot but without affecting the registered user.

To override this if you are the registered first user and you have been disconnected, you will need to complete the connection journey again. When you are asked 'Are you the machine's new owner?', please select 'Yes, I own this machine'.

Check with the other users in your house or building that know of the home Wi-Fi password your robot is set up with, and interact with your robot, to ensure there is not a misunderstanding about usability or ownership.

If you are unsure of ownership and users, you can perform a factory reset as a last resort. Please be aware this will wipe all the settings and users from your robot.

Ensure your router is connected to the wall socket and you have good signal strength.

We recommend downloading the latest version of the Dyson Link app from your device's app store or marketplace. The Dyson Link App is available on the Apple App Store for iOS devices and the Google Play store for Android devices.

WARNING: You will be unable to download the app if you are not running a compatible version of your phone/tablet's operating system. Version 4.0 of the Dyson Link app runs on iOS versions 10 and above, and on Android versions 5 and above.

Please select the appropriate option

To aid the pairing process, remove any cases or holders your device may be in, and touch the phone to the left of the information screen.

Press the power button on your machine.

This will activate the pairing process.

Has your robot now successfully paired?

Trouble connecting

Please ensure that your Bluetooth and WiFi are turned ON, your purifier and router are plugged into a stable power source and turned on, and when you are holding your device close to the purifier, it touches the machine, is to the left of the information screen, and you have removed any cases or holders from your device.

Manually enter a code

You can enter a code manually to identify your machine instead. Your code is located under the filter, and on your user guide (made up of only numerical digits).

The code is made up of eight numbers and is specific to your own machine. If you are having trouble identifying your machine via the Bluetooth touch option, this code will identify your robot manually instead.

Have you found and entered the code successfully?

Ensure the numbers you have entered exactly match those found on the sticker located on the machine and on the user guide.

If you are still having problems with connecting the Dyson Link app and your robot, please start the connection journey again, taking care with the entry of passwords and selecting the home network.

Has your 8-digit code been accepted?

Enter home WiFi password

You will now be prompted to enter your home Wi-Fi password. When entering your password, take care that you enter the correct characters (for example, 'I' and '1' and 'O' and '0' can easily be confused).

The network you are connecting to must be your home Wi-Fi network, not a public or Dyson Product Wi-Fi network.

Has your machine connected?

Slow response

If your app is taking a while to respond, please retry when prompted several times.

Ensure you have a constant and stable Wi-Fi connection, you remain in proximity to your router and robot, and the power supply to both remains stable.

Retry the connection journey

If you are still having issues completing the setup, please retry the connection journey again from the beginning (to do this, press 'No' when asked if you want to retry, and then confirm you want to exit the journey. You will then be taken back to the home screen).

Home network WiFi password

A common issue is incorrect entry of the home Wi-Fi password. To ensure it is correct, go into your device's setting's, 'forget' your Wi-Fi, and then sign back in using the password you have to hand. This ensures it is the most up to date version and all the characters are being entered correctly.

When entering your network password, press the 'Show password' option to ensure the characters being entered are a match. Certain characters can look similar, so take care that 'O', '0', 'I', and '1' are not mixed up.

The Dyson 360 Heurist™ has been optimised to operate on both a 2.4 GHz and a 5 GHz Wi-Fi network.

WEP

Check that your WiFi connection is not set to WEP, as Dyson products will not connect to a WEP configured network. This information can be found in your router settings, or by contacting your network provider. Please change this setting before proceeding with the connection journey. Dyson Machines only connect to WPA or WPA2 networks, most modern routers will have these settings. We recommend WPA2 as it is the most secure encryption.

To do this, simply place plug the charging dock into the room you want to clean, place the robot on the dock, and press the power button. The robot will then clean your room and return to its dock once completed to charge.

If the robot begins cleaning from a dock placed in an area with Wi-Fi and during its clean moves into an out of range area, this should not cause a problem to the clean. The robot will return to the dock once the clean is completed . However please be aware that if the robot goes out of Wi-Fi range during the clean, you will not be able to remotely control it with the Dyson Link app.

You can power cycle the robot to reset the Wi-Fi. To do this, place the robot on the charging dock, ensuring the battery light illuminates when the robot is on the dock.

Lift the robot off the dock for 10 seconds, then place back on the dock and refresh the Dyson Link app.

Cleaning duration

The clean duration is an estimate only and will vary depending on the following factors;

Power mode

The specific power mode per zone can either increase the estimated time or decrease it.

For example, MAX mode will offer a faster clean, but if the space is to large to complete off of one charge, the robot will need to return to the dock.

It is recommended you select the lowest power mode when creating a zone. This will offer an overall quicker cleaning time, especially in larger spaces.

Recharge rate


Subject to the power mode selected and the space that robot is vacuuming, there may be a need for 1 or more recharges. Each recharge will add addition time over that previously estimated.

Navigation issues

The robot may become stuck in an enclosed space, narrow area or upon an object. This includes underneath furniture, entering or exiting rooms with confined doorways, threshold strip between rooms or object not removed when preparing the vacuuming space.

The robot may display a status light (tracks or brushbar). This indicates the cause of the issue.

A hazard notification will be sent to the Dyson Link app.

From here, navigate to the remove section. Here you will find further information.

Changing the user

The new user will need to complete the connection journey on their device and when asked 'Are you the machine's new owner?', they will need to select 'Yes, I own this machine'.

Please note. You will need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network and you will need your Dyson machine's Wi-Fi information. We will guide you on how to find this, as you connect your machine.

Creating your first map

This option allows you to create a map of your home, which will enable you to define zoning for further cleaning sessions.

Defining zones

Once you have successfully separated the map into zones, you will be able to define the areas and apply a label to each of them. For example, Kitchen, Bedroom, Living room.

Mapping your home

To create the map quickly and efficiently, your robot will explore your home with the vacuum switched off. Please allow the robot to explore uninterrupted.

If the robot is interrupted, encounters an obstacle or becomes stuck, you will need to restart the mapping process.

Preparing your home

So that the robot can map the whole home, we ask that you ensure there is a clear path for it to navigating.

Remove any loose objects from the area you'd like to be mapped and check that all internal doors are open while the machine is active.

Mapping results

Once your robot has finished and returned to the dock, you will be able to view the map and divide it into separate zones.

Doorways and narrow openings are a good place to start. Using the dock location is a good way to orientate your map.

Using zones

When on the home screen, it will display a list of zones you have previously specified.

By selecting one or more, you can instruct your machine to begin cleaning.

The app home screen will tell you the location in which the machine is cleaning and the estimated time of completion.

To best suit your home’s layout, you have the option to configure the power mode. This is done from the home screen or when creating a schedule.

Have you been able to successfully set up zoning using your app?

Preparing the room

Dock issue

This indicates the machine is charging and the dock is functioning correctly, however the lights on the dock may have a fault.

Are the lights on the dock showing?

LED Light is too bright or not bright enough

The robot cleans using a vision system and implements LED lighting: so that it can operate successfully.

Your robot senses low light areas and uses its ring of LED lights to selectively illuminate those areas, helping it to navigate.

It is normal for the illumination to change in brightness depending on the lighting conditions.

Keep the ring of LED lights clean by regularly cleaning with a soft, dry, lint free cloth.

If the robot is still not navigating successfully in the dark, this could be caused by uneven lighting transitions,

Please: close any curtains or blinds to prevent uneven lighting transitions, while ensuring there is fluid lighting throughout.

Is the machine working as expected?

The main features that can cause a robot to get lost are:

When there are an insufficient amount of features in a room (empty corridor for example).

When it goes underneath furniture so that it can’t recognise where it is in the room.

When you pick up the robot and put it down where it hasn’t been before, it will get lost as it hasn’t been there before.

If you pause it to pick it up and clean the brush bar or empty the bin for example, you should always put it back where you first picked it up or where it has cleaned previously – however it would still need to re-localise when you do this and this can take a short period of time.

To avoid this error, please view the Helpful Hints for information on where to place the dock and how to prepare the room. Your machine may appear 'lost' if the sensors have not been cleaned.

Please select the appropriate option

Clean the sensors

Check your infra-red sensors, lens and LED lights regularly. Use a soft, dry, lint free cloth to wipe all over the robot and especially the infra-red sensors, lens and LED lights.

WARNING: Do not use cleaning fluids, liquids or sprays of any kind.

Robot Behavior:

The robot may appear to navigate randomly before powering down, stop cleaning altogether or return to the dock without completing a clean or sending a notification through the app.

This can be caused by a combination of the robot becoming lost, a change in ambient lighting, the sensors needing to be cleaned or the room not being prepared correctly. Each of which will need to be checked.

Restart the clean and continue to monitor the situation. Should it persist, please relocate the dock.

Change in ambient lighting

The robot uses very sensitive drop sensors when navigating. These sensors will occasionally detect sudden changes in color of brightness as a drop, which can prevent the robot from navigating certain areas.

Please: close any curtains or blinds to prevent uneven lighting transitions.

Is the machine working as expected?

The main features that can cause a robot to get lost are:

When there are an insufficient amount of features in a room (empty corridor for example).

Obstacles

Obstacles, such as bags, shoes etc. in the vicinity of steps might cause the sensors to not detect the drop. Tidy obstacles within 10cm of the edge of step.

Where there is a downward ramp, rug or raised flooring leading to a step down, the robot will not be able to determine the height of the drop as it is tilted forward and may fall down the step.

The robot does not have sensors in the back, however the only time that the robot reverses any significant distance is when starting from the dock, so do not place your dock within 50cm of a step.

The sensors need to be cleaned in order for the robot to detect drops successfully.

The sensors need to be cleaned in order for the robot to detect drops successfully.

Please select the appropriate option

Your robot has infra-red distance sensors to detect obstacles and avoid them.

The sensors are best suited to avoiding large obstacles, such as walls and large furniture. Tall, thin obstacles, such as chair or table legs are occasionally not detected. Shiny or clear surfaces such as metallic bins, chrome chair legs, mirrors, glass and windows can also fail to be detected. Black walls may not be detected if there is not adequate lighting.

In each case the robot relies on a sensitive bump detection system that avoids damage to your belongings when the robot does make contact with them.

To ensure the robot is able to detect furniture, view the guide to cleaning the sensors and the step on how to prepare the room.

Serial number and password location

The serial number and passcode can be found on the rear of the instruction manual or on the main body of the machine behind the bin.

NB: The robots passcode is made up of numbers and lower case letters only, so '0' is definitely the number zero. The number '1' and the letter 'l' (L) may look similar, as may the letters 'j' (J) and 'i' (I).
The serial number is listed if you view all devices connected to your network through your router settings on your PC, phone or tablet.

The serial number can also be found in the app if you have registered it.

How the robot navigates

The robot cleans using a vision system and implements LED lighting: so that it can operate successfully in dark conditions.

The robot drives out 1m into the room with the brushbar turned off.

The robot then cleans in 5mx5m grids, centered on the dock. The machine will clean each 5mx5m section before moving on to the next.

It will work around any obstacles in each section until all of the floorsplace has been covered before returning to the dock.

Please note. If you start the machine off the dock, the first grid will be created using the starting point as the centre of the first grid. This will also be the end point of the cleaning session.

Taking your machine out of the country of origin

We’ll do everything we can to help if you decide to take your machine abroad, but we don’t recommend it for the following reasons:

  1. The machine has only been tested to comply with the safety regulations of the country of origin
  2. Some countries run a different electricity supply.
  3. Different plugs are used in different countries, and Dyson advise against using a transformer or plug adaptor.
  4. We believe it’s important to offer excellent aftersales support. Not all Dyson territories are able to support all the product ranges, and may not be able to supply parts or repair these products.

It is for these reasons the guarantee expressly states that the machine is only to be used in the country of origin.
