The SILENO City is equipped with a rear wheel that swivels, thus ensuring the robotic lawn mower has increased manoeuvrabilty and agility using the CorridorCut function – ideal for narrow lawns. During the installation process, there is a programming assistant that will guide you through the menu system and calculates independently the mowing plan. The mowing times can be set using the smart App and synced with the irrigation times of the smart water control. There is a central networking smart Gateway which can create an internet connection using your existing router, thus acting as the core of the smart system to make use of a cable free network, providing communication between all GARDENA smart system devices in your garden and the GARDENA smart App.

Just like most other robotic lawn mowers, when the mower is finished its cut or when its low on power, it will automatically return to its charging station.
