Neato Component - Add vendors in order to allow support for Vorwerk vacuum


I’ve seen that there is an update that allows pybotvac to connect to vendors other that neato. In this case Vorwerk.

Can anyone here help me edit the component in order to allow vendors selection and by this being able to conect Vorwerk VR200 and VR300 vacuum ?

Thank you all in advance.

There is an existing PR that has yet to be merged before this can be doable

Has this been merged as of yet? Keen to get my VR200 integrated

Unfortunately not yet.


By what I’ve seen it has already been merged. Do you think it is possible now?

We need a pypi release as well. Then things need to be tested and coded. Try to have some patience this merge happened a few hours ago. :slight_smile:

great news

Alright can you guys do me a favor and try the below branch as a custom component? I plan to submit the changes from this branch in 2 phases, first phase will include latest pybotvac changes and a bug fix for

Try this:

I don’t own a neato. I’ve search the code and I don’t see the ability to choose the Vorwerk as vendor. Am I wrong? I’m asking because I would be more than happy to help.

did you check the parent library?

But in order to test your custom component how do I add the vendor?

You are correct, additional code changes will be needed. I don’t think I will be able to make these changes myself honestly. May need a developer with a Vorwerk vacuum to help out then. Sorry about that.

Wouldn’t a simple parameter in the code to accept vendor line in configuration.yaml be enough?

We can’t just add a configuration.yaml setting if there is no code in place in the component to handle it. Its not as simple as it seems. If you are able to do it locally go for it.

Unfortunately I’m able to partially read the code but I don’t know how to code.

In the mean time I’ve seen that someone has made a commit and has had the vendor in github. I will give that a try a get back to you

Yup I just merged the code change with a small adjustment to get things working properly :). Please make sure to add vendor: 'vorwerk' to the neato config before testing.

Ah thats right, had to be lowercase cv can you update this file and try again?

Home assistant now starts but I get the error below:

File “/config/custom_components/neato/”, line 174, in setup

from pybotvac import Account, Neato, Vorwerk

ImportError: cannot import name ‘Neato’ from ‘pybotvac’ (/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pybotvac/

I’m also looking at line 9 of the file init and shouldnt it also declare that it has to import the vendor from home assistant?

This is what I am getting in the log
