Litter-Robot


The Litter-Robot integration allows you to control and monitor your Wi-Fi-enabled, automatic, self-cleaning litter box for cats.

You will need a Litter-Robot account as well as a Wi-Fi-enabled Litter-Robot unit that has already been associated with your account.

The Feeder-Robot is not currently supported by this integration.

Configuration

Adding Litter-Robot to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:

Services

Services are utilized for additional functionality that is available in the Litter-Robot companion app. The following are currently available:

reset_waste_drawer

Resets the waste drawer level on the Litter-Robot. This will reset the cycle count returned by the Litter-Robot API to 0 such that the waste drawer entity will report as 0.0 %.

service: litterrobot.reset_waste_drawer
target:
  entity_id: vacuum.litter_robot_litter_box

set_sleep_mode

Enables (with start_time parameter) or disables sleep mode on the Litter-Robot.

Parameter Type Required Description
enabled bool yes Set to true to enable and false to disable.
start_time string no Time at which the unit will enter sleep mode and prevent an automatic clean cycle for 8 hours. This param uses the 24-hour format string %H:%M:%S, with seconds being optional, and is based on the timezone configured for your Home Assistant installation. As such, 10:30:00 would indicate 10:30 AM, whereas 22:30:00 would indicate 10:30 PM.

Example of setting the sleep mode to begin at 10:30 PM.

service: litterrobot.set_sleep_mode
