Domoticz and robot vacuum cleaners

Post by Awst6000 » Tuesday 07 April 2015 21:46

Hi,
We're thinking about bying a Neato XV Signature Pro robot vacuumcleaner.

Can such a device be monitored within Domoticz?
If yes, what are the advantages of doing that?

ThinkTheme - theme for Domoticz
My (Dutch) blog: http://thinkpad.tweakblogs.net - My Domoticz scripts: Bitbucket
I'm not (very) active anymore on this forum as i don't use Domoticz anymore.

I created a script to control a roomba with a simple metered outlet.
The script monitors the usage of the power outlet and determines the state the Roomba is in. Based on this an action is triggered.

The only thing you need extra is a way to send a start signal to the roomba (or other device).
For this i use a DIY infrared blaster, but you could use something else.

Although i wrote this script for a Roomba, you could use it for whatever action you want to do based on the usage.

Txs, but modifying/soldering such a device is a step too far for me :-)
But it looks promising.

I just sent an email to Neato Robotics with the question if Json/Wifi is supported.
I'll update this thread when I get a reply.

The answer from Neato support:
(First they asked if I wanted to upgrade the software)

Thank you for clarifying that. No, it cannot be controlled by domotica-software or any other remote software at this time but it would be a nice idea. That might be something I can suggest to my superiors for you. If we could control it by our smartphones or tablets I think that would make things easy to program when we wanted it to clean! I will make the suggestion.

And are there perhaps more robot vacuum cleaners that are supported?

Hi,
Because we have a cat and a dog we are thinking about this one:
LG Hombot VR64701LVMP Petcare

Any chance this device can be controlled by Domoticz too?
Txs.

Yes all the latest LG hombots are the same, the only difference is the accesoires . They can be controlled using domoticz, can run over small bumps and ledges, carpets and other small obstacles

Hi,
After reading a lot about robot vacuumcleaners we ordered the Neato XV Signature Pro although this device cannot be coupled with Domoticz.

I found that the source code and the cli can be found at:
http://www.neatorobotics.com/lab/linux

Who would like to rewrite the Linux source code? :-þ

I was also looking at the Neato ,which is supposed to be the best robot vacuum, but I don't know if its the right choice if it's not compatible with Domoticz. Is there something planned for the future? I mean I could wait another couple of months if I knew that there would be support eventually.

For my Roomba,

I contacted the developer. And he is going to send me a pcb. Just have to solder some parts on it and the firmware.

Looking forward to get this working.

Got a nice script ready. No ping on the smartphones, start vacuuming... When ping... Go to base....

Thanks for the tip ThinkPad.

I think you mean the developer of this project? (Roomba + ESP8266 DIY)
http://www.mikrocontroller.net/topic/349219

This is also still on my to do list.
Unfortunately the code/firmware for this project is not online for download.

Here you can find a very good comparison: http://buildyoursmarthome.co/reviews/best-robot-vacuum/
Let me know what do you think. Do you agree with the winner?

I found the following api made to command the neato connect through it's wifi connection, anyone with some skill could help me to make it work with domoticz ?

I bought a Neato 7 in1 robot vacuum cleaner crazysales years ago, it is great. Really save my time. It is cool to monitor it with Domoticz .And surely you can use Domoticz on it. I've seen videos that indicate the precess. It is compatible. One thing to keep your heads up is you should know that not all parameters are shown narmally on it. But would not be a barrier.

They have a whole new developer section: https://developers.neatorobotics.com/

You can log in with your normal userid and password from neato and be a developer. They made SDK's for Java, Android and IOS language and have an API.
