5. Do I need to be good with technology to use the Automower®?
While the Automower® has several techy-savvy capabilities, you do not need to be an expert to operate it. Once it is set up and programmed, you can leave it to do its job. The app used to operate the mower is easy to use, and we are happy to offer support when learning how to operate your new mower.
6. Can someone just come and steal my Automower®?
No, the Automower® has several theft protection systems that may be activated. Most important: Automower® cannot be used without a personal PIN code. The installation lock prevents Automower® from functioning on any other installation than your own. The time lock requests your four-digit PIN to be entered at an interval decided by yourself. The alarm requires the PIN code to be entered when Automower® is stopped – or an audio alarm will go off.
7. Can my Automower® cut grass in the front and back yard?
Yes, it can! If your backyard is fenced, there is a ‘doggie door’ that can be purchased and installed on your fence so your mower can go from the front to the back yard and keep your home secure. The door is activated by Bluetooth by your mower to open and shut only when it is passing through.
8. Can the Automower® operate in bad weather or on uneven grass?
The Automower® is equipped with a rain sensor and is equipped to mow in rainy and wet conditions. If it is extreme weather, we recommend bringing the mower indoors. Uneven terrain is no problem for your robotic mower, as the large wheels help it to even navigate inclines up to 45 degrees.
9. How do I start my mower?
Once the Automower® is set up through Automower® Connect it runs off the schedule of your choosing. No need to press any buttons. At any time, you can tell the mower to return to the charging station and stop cutting through the app if you don’t want it in the yard.
10. What features do the Automowers® have?

Installation & Caring for Your Automower®
11. How do install my Automower®?
Installation varies greatly depending upon the mower you select. Regardless of which mower you select, we offer professional installation. However, as some models are easier to install, you as a homeowner may choose to install your mower yourself. With this option, an installation kit is included in your purchase of the mower. These models are installed similarly to installing an invisible fence for your pet. Husqvarna has installation videos to help you easily install your mower if you choose to do so that can be found here.
12. Do I have to have you install my Automower®?
Of the models we recommend 115H, 430XH, and 45XH can all be installed by the homeowner. For models 520H, 550H, and 550H EPOS, professional installation is required. Homeowner installation models come with an easy installation kit and the wire does not have to be buried in the ground.
