Some versions of iRobots we sell are Asian version units. They are genuine iRobot products just made for the Asian market and we are able to offer best pricing.
To use the iRobot app, your account must be set to Location > China. This is easy done when setting up your account at iRobot.com website. However, please note, if you already have a non Asian version iRobot product the app will not work on both robots. iRobot China can change access to the cloud service so we can not guarantee connection, this means the i7 may not be able to save maps.
Third party devices like Google Home, Alexa may not work with these units.
