How do I change the Basic settings in Robomow? For RC & RX models

For RC models


The Basic Settings are the most common menu options changed by users. Each of the Basic Settings has an icon on the mower, which is lit to indicate the selected menu option.

To change Basic Settings, press the 'Settings' button.



Some settings are defined per zone.
This is how zones are named:

L1 - Main Zone                              A1 - Sub Zone 1
L2 - Separated Zone A                   A2 - Sub Zone 2
L3 - Separated Zone B                   A3 - Sub Zone 3


Every press of the Setting button will move between the following 4 menu options:


   Time and Date

Sets the current day and time.


   Mowing Hours (%) (Intensity)

if the mowing results are not satisfactory, the Mowing Hours setting allows adjusting (by percentage) the mowing time allocated for your lawn size.


Press Settings twice until the Mowing Hours indication is lit.



Use the scrolling arrows to adjust the allocated mowing time (in %) and press OK to confirm.


The default value of this setting is 0100 (100%); it can be changed from 0050 (50%) to 0150 (150%) 

Example: A value of 110% means that the mower will run 10% more time on your lawn.





   Inactive Time

You can set specific days or specific hours during a day when you don’t want the mower to work on your lawn. For example, during weekends or during hours, when the children usually play in the lawn.


To set such “mowing free” times, press Setting three times.
Until the Inactive Day(s) will constantly lit.


Press OK, 'MO' will start blinking.



Press the RIGHT or LEFT arrows to scroll to the days you want to set as ‘Inactive’.
Press OK to toggle between “Active” and “Inactive” options for that day.

The LED is lit – ‘Inactive Day’ (mower will stay in the Base Station all day). The LED is off - available day for mowing.


Scroll through all the days to the right, until the 'Inactive Hours' will start blinking.


Set the time, at which the Inactive Hours start and press OK.


Set the time at which the Inactive Hours end and press OK.


Plan mowing times for safety

Always make sure that the mower is set to work when the lawn is vacant. In addition, always set "mowing-free" times when people (especially children) or pets may be found in vicinity.


  • The mower will not operate during the Inactive Hours throughout all days of the week.
  • If too many days/hours have been deactivated relative to the zone area, the "E8" (Decrease Inactive Time) will be displayed - you need to decrease the amount of inactive time so that the mower will have enough time to mow your lawn.
  • To set the "Inactive Hours" to "Off" set the same time for the start and the end (i.e.: 00:00 to 00:00).  





Updates the size of the lawn in case it has been changed.


RX models:

The only setting available via the mower’s panel is Child Protection (Child Lock). All other settings are available via the mobile app (except RX12u).


Enabling child protection

Child protection prevents accidental use of the mower by little children. When child protection is enabled, the mower will require a special combination to start a mowing operation or to go back to its base.

To enable child protection, press and hold the GO + STOP buttons together for 6 seconds.

If you wish to disable child protection, press and hold the GO + STOP
