  • Q: How does this compare to the roomba with dog hair? With a lab the hair is everywhere!  (5 Answers)

    By Ti 

    • Best answerI have a German Shepard that sheds all year around and it picks up a lot of hair on each cleaning. That's the good part the bad is I have to empty the dust collector after every cleaning. The brush does not seem to wrap up with hair the way the Roomba does. I have had this one for about 3 weeks and have not had to remove the brush to clean yet.

  • Q: Does the 7040 self clean the brush? I have very long hair that gets tangled on vac brushes.  (5 Answers)

    By Adnil 

    • Best answerThe brush is not self cleaning. But, I pull out anything wrapped around the brush each time I empty the bin. It's easier than unwrapping hair from the brush on my regular vacuum and I do it frequently, so it's not bad.

  • Q: Anyone successful in connecting Amazon Alexa to VR1AM7040WG PowerBot R7040 ?  (10 Answers)

    By Joey 

    • Best answerYes. Oddly, you have to use the Alexa Web App and Internet Explorer for it to work. It seems something about the pairing process using other browsers messes up the Samsung website. Modern browsers such as Edge and Chrome seem to have issues with it. I had no luck on mobile.

  • Q: Do you have to have WiFi to run this?  (5 Answers)

    By Kin 

    • Best answerNo, WiFi isn't required but it does make the experience better. It comes with a remote that you use to set everything up without WiFi. If you have WiFi you can use the Samsung smart home app to control it from anywhere and get notifications of its progress.
