  • Roomba 690 Works Perfect

    I set this up in less than 20 mins from not knowing a thing about node.js to getting the user/pass from the Roomba. I installed the PI and it works perfectly. Now how to map it......

    Did you find a decent walk through or just pull the steps together from this forum? i'm a bit confused to be honest.

    EDIT: I figured it out, but only get the password and not the ID. (this is for the i7 model). someone else here used wireshark to get that... totally lost again :-)

      Hi,

      I also would like to know any tricks or hints. I have the 690, also. I can get the password and ID, but when I start the plugin nothing happens, except the CPU usage goes up. I figure that is because the plugin is trying to find and communicate the Roomba.

      I may have to check the node.js. I have one version installed for HSMetro user interface. I wonder if that is not the correct one for this plugin. What version of node.js did you use/install?

          In my case, I found this to be an incorrect password. once fixed the CPU usage returns to normal.

            I followed the main BLRoomba PI thread. The one specifically addressing where a user said there wasn’t a way in WIN to retrieve it. The post that corrects that is what I followed on a win 10 machine.

            I too had the CPU cycles go way high....That was after I performed a full reset on the Roomba. But doing a reset causes the password to change. One I ran the node script and retrieved them new password, all is well again.
