Robot lawnmower accessories
Do you already own a robot mower or have decided to buy one? Then you might also be interested in our robot mower accessories!
We have the perfect accessories for every model:
– Magnetic tape
– Spare blades
– Cleaning set
Don't want the bee-friendly flower meadow in one part of your garden to be mowed? No problem! For this purpose, the FREELEXO CAM model includes a magnetic tape, which is also available as a separate accessory. The magnetic tape can be used to exclude certain areas of the garden from the mowing area either temporarily or for longer periods – it doesn't matter whether the tape is loosely laid on the surface, buried or covered by grass growth. Thanks to its magnetic sensors, the robot can detect the tape and automatically turn away when it reaches the marked line. Whether you want to protect a flower meadow, young plants or freshly planted hedges, or you don't want the robot mower to disturb your garden party, the magnetic tape is the perfect solution. By the way, the magnetic tape can also help if certain edges of your lawn are not clearly defined.

We answer the most frequently asked questions
#General – Do I need a boundary wire with the FREELEXO CAM?
No, the FREELEXO cam does not require a boundary wire. The lawn edges and obstacles are detected by means of the integrated camera and ultrasonic sensors.
Only a single guide cable needs to be laid during installation. This is a 5 m² loop of cable that is laid around the charging station for the robot mower to use when docking with the station.
#General – What is the rain sensor for?
The Einhell robot mower can also operate in the rain, but this may cause unnecessary damage to the grass and soil. The rain sensor is an optional feature that prevents this by automatically sending the robot back to the charging station.
#General – How loud is the robot mower in use?
The robot mower makes 57 dB(A) of noise during operation. This is about the same volume as a normal conversation.
#General – Can the robot mower detect obstacles in the garden such as toys, animals, etc.?
In addition to its deep-drawn apron, the FREELEXO robot mower has impact, tilt and lift sensors, allowing it to detect obstacles early and autonomously and stop the blades if necessary.
#General – Can it be connected to an app?
No, our current FREELEXO CAM models are not compatible with the Einhell App.
#General – The robot mower is moving around my garden with its cutting mechanism switched off. Why is that?
The first time the robot mower is started, it performs an initialisation run, which it uses to assess the quality of the lawn boundary. This process involves determining reference values for 200 points on the boundary of the garden (if necessary, and in the case of poorly defined boundaries, a further 200 points will be recorded) before starting to mow. This can take about an hour, depending on the shape of the garden and the size of the lawn. If the robot mower docks with the charging station during the initialisation run, e.g. because of a low battery or the user gives a command to return, the robot mower will resume the initialisation run the next time it is started. Once the initialisation run is complete, the robot mower will switch on the cutting mechanism and starts mowing the lawn.
#General - The mower keeps stopping. Why doesn't it run smoothly within the mowing area?
Yellow or brown patches in the mowing area can sometimes cause the robot mower to stop because it does not recognise these as grass. In these cases, the camera module checks the lawn again and then decides whether it can continue in this direction or if it should make a turn. A similar effect can occur in autumn due to leaves. To ensure smooth operation and good mowing performance, it is important to remove these from the area to be mowed.
#General - Why does the robot mower leave the mowing area or drive into obstacles?
Check the ultrasonic sensors and the camera unit for dirt. If necessary, use the magnetic tape to provide supplementary marking of the mowing area or certain obstacles.
#General - There are branches and leaves in the area to be mowed. Does the robot mower detect these as obstacles and turn away from them?
The robot mower detects leaves and branches as obstacles when its visibility is restricted or as soon as is it can no longer see the grass below. The area to be mowed should therefore always be free of leaves or branches. Scorched or discoloured patches (yellow, brown) can also cause problems for the mower, because it uses the green colour for navigation.
#General - Can the robot mower also recognise other green surfaces, e.g. flower beds, low shrubs?
If adjacent green areas such as flower beds, flower meadows and low shrubs are not delimited by edging stones or fences, the robot mower may perceive them as part of the mowing area. If the border between such surfaces is insufficient or too narrow, a boundary should be marked there using the magnetic tape supplied.
#General - What does "clearly recognisable and defined lawn edges" mean?
Clearly recognisable lawn edges can be visible boundaries of at least 30 cm, such as edging stones, tarmac, bark mulch and gravel.
#General - What is the magnetic tape for?
The magnetic tape serves as a virtual fence. The built-in magnetic sensors of the FREELEXO CAM detect the magnetic tape so it changes direction when it reaches the line. This allows you to exclude areas that it should not enter.
#General - Some areas of my garden are not well delineated. Can I still use the FREELEXO CAM?
You can use magnetic tape, which is available as an accessory in 10 and 20 m lengths, to mark inadequate or difficult to detect lawn edges in order to optimally delimit the area of your garden to be mown.
#Installation - I already have wires laid in my garden. Can I still buy the FREELEXO CAM?
Yes, this is not a problem, but a separate guide loop must be installed.
#Installation - Where may the charging station be placed?
- An outdoor socket is required which provides permanent power. The power cable on the charging station is 10 m long. Be careful not to lay the power cable in the mowing area.
- The charging station must be laid on a level surface.
- It must be possible to lay the guide cable around the charging station.
- Place the charging station in a shady place.
