Scout doesn't scan and build map due to privacy reasons. It follows pre-programmed path by user using Scout's App. Open space has higher chance to complete patrol. If too many obstacles, the bot could give up and try to return to the charger.
Go to the patrol path set up in the App. Name a new patrol path. Scout needs to start from its charging station. Control Scout to move along the desired path. Either use auto-return to save the path automatically or use manual save option. Only when Scout sees the charging station at the end, the path can be saved.
This is to make sure that Scout can go back for charging. During patrol, if interests are detected, such as human body or pets, Scout would alert, record a 13-second video, and store the clip-on cloud server.
