  • Plugin Errors Out

    After a little while the plugin just errors out and says:

    Calling SetIOMulti in plugin ThinkingCleaner:Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Plugin ThinkingCleaner is not responding but it is still running, not restarting yet.

    I turned on debug and it looks like it stop communicating to it.

    Code:

    DEBUG1: PollTC: Parsing info
    When it says this if i goto the IP of the unit through my browser it connects fine or if i try to control it from the app, it works fine. Any ideas?.

    It seems to error out once a Dock Command is sent from the plugin

    If i restart the plugin it works normal for a bit.

      I tested this many times, but I don't have this issue myself. The only time my TC gets 'confused' is when I give him many commands right after each other.

        Never have gotten this PI to work.

        I still have issues with this Plug In..... it seems to lose its mind every time I tell it to do anything other that play the happy little find me tune.

        It works perfectly via direct web page, but issuing commands like clean or dock through the HS PI and the PI goes radio silent. I have to disable it and re-enable it to reestablish communications. Web works fine.

        TC is currently 1.0.87-310C-FCC
        Device is a 650.

        Any help would be much appreciated.

          I have the same problem, I also notice after this it throws the roomba into some errors and even the light on top of thinking cleaner modual starts to blink yellow instead of green. I have learned to no run any command threw the app and instead send an http command via a scene to start it every day when we are gone. I really don't remote drive or have anything else that I need the buttons for.

          I really only use this app to monitor the string data but even that is not done as I would hope. I have requested some changes but have radio silence.

            care to share your http commands? Would love to have Dock, Clean, Find and whatever else you have.

              All that info is public in the Thinking Cleaner API here.

              http://www.thinkingcleaner.com/downloads/TC_API.pdf

              I have uploaded a picture below on how I use it in an event.

              the key in this is my roomba's static IP and in this picture it's setting it to "MAX" or Max Clean.

              You can change that out to "Spot", "Dock", "Clean", "find_me" and a few more, just look at the API.

                Same problem here. Could it be that something changed with later revisions of the Roomba? Or Thinking Cleaner?

                As it is the plugin is of no use (to me anyway) unfortunately.

                Rien - any hope of an update to the plugin? Guess you'd need a troublesome Roomba to test with though....

                  Im using the plugin for string data only and then sending my own http commands. I never heard anything back from the plugin developer and would also like to change how the string data is displayed. Here is how i have it setup in imperihome.

                    Was what I was going to do as well if the plugin isn't updated any more.

                        Any luck on this? Do you need any testing?

                        I would also like to edit or separate some of the string data so I can clean up the info in the pictures above.

                        Also in the US we use miles no KM but that's currently not an option. If you get some time it would be nice to refresh, update or add some features to this plugin along with fix the errors.

                        Thanks,

                          I'm having issues with my Roomba, not related to the thinking cleaner, which I need to solve first.

                            Mine is working again. And... without any issues.

                            The only difference I see is that I have a 1.0.87-310C-EU firmware version. But I can't image that is the problem.

                            I will do some more intensive testing and see what happens
