iRobot Roomba and Braava

The Roomba integrationsIntegrations connect and integrate Home Assistant with your devices, services, and more. [Learn more] allows you to control your iRobot Roomba vacuum or iRobot Braava m-series mop.

This integrationsIntegrations connect and integrate Home Assistant with your devices, services, and more. [Learn more] 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.


To add the iRobot Roomba and Braava integration to your Home Assistant instance, use this My button:

iRobot Roomba and Braava can be auto-discovered by Home Assistant. If an instance was found, it will be shown as Discovered. You can then set it up right away.

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. For more information, refer to the Roomba 980 repository.

Retrieving your credentials

Check if the credentials can be retrieved directly from your device:

  1. Make sure the Roomba app is closed on all of your devices.
  2. Follow the instructions in Home Assistant to retrieve the credentials.

If automatic retrieval does not work, you can retrieve the credentials manually. To manually retrieve both the BLID (username) and the password, refer to the instructions in the Roomba 980 or dority 980 repository.

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.

Retrieving credentials from the cloud with dorita980

The underlying Python library is currently unable to retrieve the credentials from some newer models (for example, the J7). See this issue for details. Luckily, the password can be retrieved from the cloud using a tool provided by the dorita980 library. Follow these instructions to do this, you should receive output of the form:

Found 1 robot(s)!
Robot "RoombaJ7" (sku: j715800 SoftwareVer: sapphire+22.21.1+2022-06-02-570490a425b+Firmware-Production+70):
Password=> XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX <= Yes, all this string.

Use this credentials in dorita980 lib :)

Copy the password (everything between => and <=, not including leading and trailing whitespace) into the Home Assistant password dialog.
