Hi, Has anyone successfully integrated a Roborock S7MaxV to HA. A couple issues I ran into:
Having to use Xiaomi Home App as opposed to Roborock App, some functionality was missing. Specifically the Video Icon that allows you to view video from the Robot’s camera is missing or unsupported as yet on the Xiaomi Home app. Maybe I’m doing something wrong.
I managed to extract Xiaomi Cloud key using token_extractor.exe and get the Integration working with 1 device and 17 entities. However I couldn’t get the Xiaomi Cloud Map Extractor by @PiotrMachowskiwhen working HAC card refused to login to Xiaomi saying “Failed to Login” on the Map screen. I’m running HA in a Synology Docker container with the latest version
The Roborock S7MaxV has only just been released in Ausralia. Maybe the integrations do not support it as yet
Found this video to write my scripts for my mdi images at the bottom to clean ‘rooms’ and use google assistant commands. It’s takes time to setup and is actually smoke and mirrors. But another awesome addition to the whole thing
Be careful leaving the the Camera card active on your dashboard too long. I ‘THINK’ this is why I get my devices ip_banned.
Yes from my struggles, the only way to get the token is connect to Xiaomi Home.
Which is a ashamed as the Roborock App is much better, specifically you can view the on-board video, which you can’t do with Xiaomi Home app or HA as far as i can tell. So I’m considering going back to the Roborock App and abandoning HA integration.
I found this discussion in the iobroker forums: [Tester gesucht] Roborock-API
The user rovo89 managed to connect to the roborock api and together with Meistertr they are trying to create a Roborock adapter for iobroker. Maybe we can adapt that work for a home assistant integration?
Dont know why some of us dont want to use the Mi Home APP but i receive my Roborock S7 Pro Ultra yesterday and first try was with the Roborock app, which is great, after i came to Mi Home APP and it offers the same settings and same possibility of Roborock APP and Mi Home APP just needed to integrate the roborock to HA with this great tutorial : https://peyanski.com/home-assistant-roborock-s7-integration-how-to/
thanks @peyanski for your clear, simple and working tutorial! take 10 minutes to complete.
you can even have the map under HA and even Rooms you define under Mi Home APP and almost all settings and functionality of the app.
After that you dont no more need Mi Home APP. Only if you want to modify rooms definition or forbiden zones but sure you dont do that every day…
TRICK: for those who have 2 or more regions for their devices, i use a “clone APP” on Android, so i have one MiHome APP with CN region and a second one with DE region (this one only for the Roborock).
Well, there are differences in the two apps.
This starts with the zones, in the Mi Home app you can not create schedules with it. In the Roborock APP this works without any problems!
Then you have the remote camera which only works via the Roborock app and last but not least the support.
On the one hand, you will be helped much faster with questions and on the other hand, you get updates for your Roborock sooner.
Unfortunately, there is still no way to read the token from the Roborock app, otherwise I would have long since changed again.
