Ecovacs Deebot Vacuum

The ecovacs vacuum platform allows you to monitor and control your Ecovacs Deebot vacuums.

You have first to setup the Ecovacs component

Component Lifespans

The remaining lifespan of components on your Deebot vacuum will be reported as attributes on the vacuum entity. The value will be a whole number representing the percentage of life remaining.

Here’s an example of how to extract the filter’s lifespan to its own sensor using a template sensor:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: template
        friendly_name: "Vacuum Filter Remaining Lifespan"
        unit_of_measurement: '%'
        value_template: "{{ state_attr('vacuum.my_vacuum_id', 'component_filter') }}"

Or, if you want a simple binary sensor that becomes On when the filter needs to be replaced (5% or less):

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: template
        friendly_name: "Vacuum Filter"
        device_class: problem
        value_template: "{{ state_attr('vacuum.my_vacuum_id', 'component_filter') <= 5 }}"

Handling Errors

The vacuum entity has an error attribute that will contain the most recent error message that came from the vacuum. There is not a comprehensive list of all error messages, so you may need to do some experimentation to determine the error messages that your vacuum can send.

If the vacuum fires a “no error” event, the error attribute will change back to None. Note, however, that this does not happen for all types of errors.

Alternatively, you can use the ecovacs_error event to watch for errors. This event will contain a data payload that looks like:

  "entity_id": "vacuum.deebot_m80",
  "error": "an_error_name"

Finally, if a vacuum becomes unavailable (usually due to being idle and off its charger long enough for it to completely power off,) the vacuum’s status attribute will change to offline until it is turned back on.
