RoboRock S5 vacuum entity is being detected as alarm_control_panel

Hi guys,

I’ve been away from HASS for a year or so and have just built a brand new install around my rPi 3B+.

I’m running Home Assistant 0.110.3 and I have been able to retrieve my token for my vacuum successfully and setup the integration using the GUI rather than editing the configuration.yaml file.

However, even though the device name looks correct

by Xiaomi
Firmware: 3.5.7_002008

The entity name does not.


And consequently all I’m presented with is DISARM button on the dashboard.

I’m thinking the issue because I have done it through the GUI and not the configuration.yaml file.

Things seem to have changed a lot since I last used HASS. Where is all the configuration stored now? My configuration.yaml has almost none of my devices configured in it.


Fixed it. I have to add the vacuum via the configuration.yaml file, not the GUI.
