    Not for 1.6.4?

    Hi,

    My 980 came with firmware 1.6.4 and hasn't shown any interest in updating itself (I got it about 2 days ago). It does work just fine with Dorita and Rest980, but the plug-in just doesn't seem to do anything at all. I create a new Roomba, enter the IP, username, password - just like in Dorita. The devices get created but seem to stick with default values (on dock, battery unknown, many values "not set"). I can click any button I want with no effect whatsoever.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers,
    Alex

    Looks like the app just updated and you can create an account now so the Roomba will work with Amazon echo. Not sure if this will help with this plugin or it.

    I'm not a software person, so I'm lost trying the Dorita980 option.

    Blade did post: " I will see about adding it to the plugin" Has that gone any further?

    I tried calling iRobot tech support.......but as you might suspect....that was a dead end.

    Any suggestions or ideas are appreciated.
    I have not figured that out yet
    I used the dorita980 getpassword.js to get my info

    Get Password

    It looks like Dorita980 getpassword.js node is no longer working to pull the password. It grabs everything else but the password string is empty. Can anyone else confirm that to be the case if you still have the getpassword.js script?

    My sw: line reads: 2.2.5-2.

    Just wanted to make a quick note and say that I just installed this and got this working with my new Roomba 980. I picked up the roomba yesterday and I had to wait until it updated the firmware to 2.x (it came with 1.6). Luckily that happened last night so today I was able to get everything connected and I successfully triggered a clean from homeseer this morning

    I'm pretty excited about this because I prefer to run the roomba while I'm out of the house. Unfortunately since I work from home there isn't really a time when I know I'll be gone to schedule the roomba to run. But, since homeseer knows when I'm home and when I'm not I'm planning to try to configure homeseer to start the roomba after I leave. I'll just need to try to work in some logic to only allow it to run once every few days so if I leave the house 4 times in one day it's not going to clean 4 times.

    Thanks much for your work on this plugin

    I suspect the easiest is we can just recreate the getpassword.js of Dorita and require the button press on the Robot. Until then run this using node to get your BLID and password:

    Small world... I appreciate the help on this one.
    Two plugins is fine to have - gives people choice

    I am trying to think of any way for users to be able to get their id and password for the Roomba but nothing comes to mind yet

    Whoah too cool dude, I'm sputt from GitHub. I had no idea you were the same guy. I actually just posted a thread about my plugin for Homeseer but I see you beat me too it. I'll gladly contribute to yours and remove my thread as soon as it's approved.

    OK, let me know if you want a donation. Feature request for more of the Roomba commands...such as scheduling from HS3. Maybe a map that you can pull up for history of where the Roomba cleaned?

    If anyone has loaded the plugin, please do the following:

    Delete all devices associated with the plugin, then update to the latest zip file in the link in the first thread and install the files
    Then start the plugin - it will re-create all devices
