    Well, I do have a P3I hopefully it something that one can do easily It's funny I bought it originally to be use with my Vera as a presence detector which worked but wasn't as reliable as my iPhone tracker... Until till I get Dorita980 working this will be an academic exercise.

    Yes you need to use the dorita980 to get the BLID and password for the plugin.
    There is nothing on Windows that will do it as far as I know
    You can use a Raspberry PI to do it with dorita980

    Bob, thanxs for the comeback. I deleted Rosie and re-added and got a second set of devices however it was named Gennie. Before I get too far I noticed that my Gennie device isn't communicating with the actual 980 device, I'm assuming that the User ID and Password are the same as the Roomba (IOS) App which is email ID and its password?

    I noticed for the Linux stuff that there is a Dorita980 routine that gets the BLID and Password is there something similar for windows version? and not then how does one get the same?

    That is odd - it should create the devices when you add a Roomba to the plugin.
    Try deleting Gennie from the plugin and then add it again and see if the devices get created
    If not then let me know and we will do something else.

    @blade, firstly thanxs for the plug-in, I believe I've uncovered a bug. I have two 980's one is name Rosie and the other is Gennie. I Inputted both within the plug-in and displays both of them as separate within it (see attached) but when I go to the Device List Rosie is the only device showing (see attached) is there something I needed to do?

    Working now. To help anyone else who might see this error in the log, it was actually an authentication error (had to grab my password from dorita again, replace the roomba in the plug in and paste in the credentials again). thanks for helping me solve it blade!

    BLRoombaWifi

    @blade



    I installed the plugin and it created the devices, but they are not updating. The debug log shows this error. Not sure if it is something i am doing wrong on my side or a bug?

    I have a roomba 980, it is on the wifi (same subnet my HS3 server is hardwired to) and the iRobot iOS app is able to reach and control it without issue.





    Code:
    07/01/2017 12:41:49:062 PM : v2.0.7.0 - Build_Roomba_Device_Address(): name --> Cleaning Recharge Minutes
    
    07/01/2017 12:41:49:062 PM : v2.0.7.0 - Build_Roomba_Device_Address(): address --> BLRoombaWifi-**masked**-**masked**-CleaningRechargeMinutes
    
    07/01/2017 12:41:49:062 PM : v2.0.7.0 - Build_Roomba_Device_Address() finished
    
    07/01/2017 12:41:49:069 PM : v2.0.7.0 - Check_Roombas(): ERROR - Caught this exception - Input string was not in a correct format.


    I will PM you the full log in case you have a few minutes to take a look at it when your dev system is back up and running.



    Thanks.

    Does the iRobot API allow the collection of "job data" such as time spent cleaning, sq footage cleaned, number of "dirt detections", etc.? It would be cool to be able to collect that info in a local database.

    Yes I believe it does have that data - I just have not had time to get that into the plugin.

    Firmware Upgrade

    Just in case somebody is interested: I've noticed that my Roomba was updated from v2.2.5-2 to v2.2.9-1 yesterday. The update doesn't seem to have any negative effect on the plugin. blid & password are also still valid.

    Cheers,
    Alex

    Just one thing left (lowest possible priority): The plugin has a button for "pause", but not for "resume". That would be nice. I control the roomba with Alexa and my script is set up that if you say "stop" it stays where it is and if you say "stop" again it returns home. Would be nice if the first "stop" could trigger a "pause" and the next "start" triggers "resume" to have it continue where it was instead of starting again with "clean". But like I said: this is lowest possible priority.

    One more question - last for today: where can I send a donation to?
