Husqvarna Automower evaluation part 4 – link manage

Automower ‘Connect’ is Husqvarna’s name for their smartphone interface to the mower.

The hardware is fitted as common on the variety topping 450X, however it’s an add-on you’ll have to pay for if you own a 430X, 420, 330X or 320. Additionally, installing the link module is not a diy job, needing a trip back to your dealership for fitting together with a software application upgrade in order to allow it.

We packed Elon into the boot for a drive to our regional dealerships Moore Horticulture Equipment. Here’s one more advantage of the robot over a ride-on, it fits in your car so no more paying for van collection as well as shipment for a service visit like this.

The link board utilizes the cellular network and connects to Husqvarna’s servers via 2G GPRS. It costs £155 fitted as well as its SIM card comes with 2 years of data included (no concept what the charges are for data after that).

De app

The Automower link app is offered on the iOS app store as well as the Google play store for Android devices. when installed there’s a simple one-time pairing procedure with your mower.

After the dealership has installed this accessory in the robotic mower you are able to start, stop as well as park it, view as well as modification the mower settings in addition to get alarms as well as track the mower’s GPS setting – with your smartphone, anywhere you are.

All this can be done from anywhere in the world with Web access. If you’re a non-smartphone having luddite (unlikely if you own a robotic mower?) then status, GPS tracking as well as fault messages can be requested as well as provided via SMS text message instead.

Status & Settings

The condition screen shows if your machine is currently mowing or charging. If it is charging then you can see exactly how it’s progressing and get a forecast for the time it will be full as well as begin mowing again. You can send stop / begin as well as Park commands and you’ll receive push notifications of any type of issues (outside limit for example).

In addition you can configure your mower from the settings tab, altering things like cutting height, timer as well as even all the parameters in the ‘installation’ menu like corridor width.


The Geofence tab allows you to view where your mower is in near-real time (the pin), the path it has taken in addition to a warm map of the area its just recently covered. furthermore the link board brings improved security features, more on that in a future part of the review.

The iOS software includes an app for the Apple watch which can be utilized to see the condition of your machine as well as stop / begin as well as park it.

Connect Verdict

It’s disappointing that the hardware for app manage is not common on these Automowers as it’s something you expect to be included at the price. It’s not even offered as an choice for a few of the lower models. ideally Husqvarna will consider fitting link as common across the entire variety in the future.

It’s great to see the app being on a regular basis updated. v2.0.2 as tested right here is the 4th new version already in the very first half of this year.

There’s lots of range for new features to be added in the future, a log of activity for example, distance traveled (using the GPS), more information on the condition of the batteries. A web browser interface would be suitable for this too. No question many of the visitors of this site would likewise like an API so they might integrate the mower with the rest of their wise home, sending a Park signal to the mower from their ZipaTile for example.

Once fitted the system works truly well as well as is a much better way of monitoring, controlling as well as configuring your machine than having to be physically next to it.
