iRobot Roomba and Braava


The roomba integration allows you to control your iRobot Roomba vacuum or iRobot Braava m-series mop.

This integration has been tested and confirmed to be working with the iRobot Roomba s9+, Roomba 980, Roomba 960, Roomba 890, and Braava jet m6 models, but should also work fine with any Wi-Fi enabled Roomba or Braava like the 690. For auto-discovery, you will need to initiate a Roomba reboot. For example, by holding the clean button for up to 20 seconds on an i7 or 980. More information about rebooting your robot.

Configuration

Adding iRobot Roomba and Braava to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by taking the following steps:

  • Browse to your Home Assistant instance.
  • In the sidebar click on Configuration.
  • From the configuration menu select: Integrations.

iRobot Roomba and Braava can be auto-discovered by Home Assistant. If an instance was found, it will be shown in the top of the list of integrations as “Discovered”. If that is the case click on the Configure button to start setting up the discovered instance.

If there wasn’t any discovered automatically, don’t worry! You can set up a manual integration entry:

  • In the bottom right, click on the Add Integration button.
  • From the list, search and select “iRobot Roomba and Braava”.
  • Follow the instruction on screen to complete the set up.

After completing, the iRobot Roomba and Braava integration will be immediately available for use.

The Roomba’s MQTT server only allows a single connection. Enabling continuous mode will force the App to connect via the cloud to your Roomba. More info here

Integration Entities

The Roomba Integration will add the following sensors.

Sensors:

  • roomba_battery_level : The status of your battery
  • roomba_bin_full (if Roomba has the capacity to do) : Bin Full status

Manually retrieving your credentials

Please refer to here or here to retrieve both the BLID (username) and the password.

For Home Assistant Container, the following command retrieves the BLID (username) and password:

docker exec -it CONTAINER_NAME_OR_ID python -c 'import roombapy.entry_points; roombapy.entry_points.password()' ROOMBA_IP

The command to retrieve the credentials does not need any additional software to be installed because it uses the built-in roombapy package and password function deployed with Home Assistant.
