Switching between using EPOS™ Technology and the boundary wire in an Automower® installation

It is possible to switch between using the wire-free system with EPOS™ Technology and the boundary wire installation. The two systems cannot be used at the same time.

Note that each time you switch between the wire-free EPOS™ Technology and the boundary wire installation (or vice versa), all existing virtual boundaries (created using EPOS or AIM Technology), work areas, stay-out zones and schedules will be reset.

To switch between using the wire-free EPOS™ Technology and the boundary wire installation:

  1. Open the Automower® Connect app and sign in.
  2. Select More > Settings > Accessories.
  3. Enable or disable EPOS™ Technology using the slider.

To use the wire-free EPOS™ Technology, you need a mower that supports EPOS™ Technology, a reference station and the EPOS™ Plug-In kit for the robotic lawn mower to be able to operate. The mower also needs a firmware update. We highly recommend asking a dealer help you get started using EPOS™ Technology. To learn more about wire-free Automower® installations using EPOS™ technology, see Virtual installation.

If you disable EPOS™ Technology, you need a boundary wire installation for the robot lawn mower to be able to operate. When operation is started, the mower will start collecting data for the virtual map created by AIM Technology.
