Setup and Installation

Setting up your Shark ION Robot Vacuum RV871 is a simple process that can be completed in just a few steps.

First, plug the robot into an outlet and press the power button to turn it on. This will cause the robot’s LED indicator light to illuminate red, indicating that it is ready for use.

Next, take the included remote control and point it towards the robot in order to pair them together. When successful, the LED indicator light will blink blue. You can now use the remote to control your robot’s cleaning functions as well as its scheduling options.

The Shark ION Robot Vacuum comes with dual spinning side brushes, an extra-wide brushroll, and powerful suction so that it can thoroughly clean all types of floors. It also has sensors that allow it to detect obstacles like furniture legs or cords so that it won’t bump into them while performing its cleaning duties.

To get started with your cleaning session, select one of three settings: spot clean, quick clean, or deep clean. Spot clean is ideal for small messes while quick clean is perfect for maintaining a neat home without having to spend much time vacuuming. The deep clean setting is suitable for more thorough cleans as it typically covers more area in less time than other settings do.

Simply enter your desired days and times for the robot to perform a vacuum on its own by using the included remote or downloading the Shark app on your compatible device and syncing it with your vacuum cleaner via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection.

And there you have it! These easy steps make setting up your Shark ION Robot Vacuum RV871 simple and straightforward so you can sit back and relax knowing that you won’t have to worry about vacuuming again any time soon!
