    Homebridge plugin for Xiaomi / Roborock Vacuum Cleaner's

    This homebridge plugin allows you to control the Xiaomi vacuum robots in your Apple Home App (HomeKit).

    It is currently presented in the Home App in the form of a Fan because Apple don't officially support Vacuums in Homekit (we can't wait for this moment to arrive)!

    Xiaomi Mi Robot 1st Generation (Roborock Vacuum V1)   Roborock S50 2nd Generation   Roborock S55 2nd Generation Black   Roborock S6/T6 3nd Generation   Roborock Xiaowa Lite C10   Roborock S5 Max   Roborock S6 MaxV

    For the underlying communication layer, it uses a port of the no-longer maintained library miio. You'll find the code in the directory ./miio.


    • Fan as On-/Off-Switch. When switching off, directly back to the charging station.
    • Battery status and condition in the device details. Low battery alert.
    • Pause switch (optional).
    • Room cleaning (optional): Read Room cleaning to understand how it works.
    • Zone cleaning (optional).
    • Occupancy sensor (similar to motion sensor) for dock status (optional).
    • Second Fan for water box modes (optional).

    Optional parameters

    Name of parameter Default value Notes
    silent false when set to true, it will log only warning and error messages (hiding info and debug messages even when running homebridge -D
    pause false when set to true, HomeKit shows an additional switch for "pause" - switch is on, when pause is possible
    pauseWord pause used for naming the Pause comment
    findMe false when set to true, HomeKit shows an additional switch for "find me" - if switched on, the vacuum will say "Hi, I am over here"
    findMeWord where are you used for autonaming the "find me" command. E.g: Hey Siri, NameOfYourVacuum where are you
    dock false when set to true, HomeKit shows an occupancy sensor, if robot is in the charging dock
    waterBox false when set to true, HomeKit shows an additional slider to control the amount of water released by the robot (only selected models like S5-Max). Currently in a beta state
    dustCollection false when set to true, HomeKit shows an additional switch to control the dust collection with the auto-empty dock (only selected models like S7+ or S7 with additional dock). Currently in a beta state
    cleanword cleaning used for autonaming the Roomselectors
    rooms false Array of ID / Name for a single Room. If set you have another switch for cleaning only this room
    zones false Array of name / zone coordinates for a single zone group. A zone group may contain multiple zone squares, each with its own value for number of cleanings. Coordinates are laid out as bottom-left-x, bottom-left-y, top-right-x, top-right-y, number-of-cleanings. A separate tile in Home will be created for each zone group. Figuring out coordinates will take some trial and error. Each zone should be surrounded by brackets: [], with the entire value also surrounded by brackets
    autoroom false set to true to generate rooms from robot (only S6) or set to array of room name strings (see semi automatic below)
    roomTimeout 0 when set to anything above "0" - will initiate room cleaning for multiple rooms automatically after the given time in seconds

    Room cleaning

    This plugin supports Room cleaning (only models that support room cleaning via the Xiaomi Mi Home app). Keep reading to understand how it works and how to set it up.

    How it works

    To start the Room Clean Mode, you can enable/disable the room switches in the order that they need to be cleaned. Then turn on the main Fan switch to start the actual cleaning.

    If you want your robot to start cleaning after you enable/disable the room switches, use the config parameter roomTimeout to set the number of seconds the robot should wait before starting (this is to allow you to find the other rooms you want to set ON/OFF).

    How can I set it up

    Semi automatic

    This feature seems to work with all models which offer room cleaning, but may not work on newer firmware versions (3.5.8_0358 or newer). To use it:

    1. Set the autoroom property in the config to an array of room names (["my room 1", "my room 2", "my room 3"].
    2. In the Xiaomi Mi app, setup a timer at midnight (00:00 or 12:00am).
    3. Enable Select a room to divide.
    4. On the map select the rooms in the order as they appear in the config set in step 1. The order is important as this is how the plugin maps the room names to IDs.
    5. Submit the timer and make sure it's deactivated.
    6. Restart homebridge.

    Fully automatic

    This feature seems to be working on models that support naming the rooms in the Xiaomi / Roborock App. This is known to include the Roborock S6 as well as the S4 with firmware version 3.5.8_0358 or newer.

    Even if you have one of these models but you haven't named the Rooms in your App yet, this function will not work! Thanks @domeOo

    Xiaomi Token

    To use this plugin, you have to read the "token" of the xiaomi vacuum robots. Here are some detailed instructions:

    NOTE: We are not currently aware of how to retrieve the token from the Roborock App. Please, share any findings in the issue #104.

    Is my model supported?

    As new users join our community, and use this plugin, we try to learn from their device, and keep up with the new devices Xiaomi releases. However, the main developer @afharo, only owns the model S5, and he can't test the features on other models. If you wonder whether your device is supported, please:

    1. Check the ./models/models.js file to see if your device is already in the explicit list.
    2. If not, maybe it matches de default behaviour (just try running the plugin and see if it works).
      1. If it works, but the vacuum modes (aka speeds) are wrong: add your model to the list in 1 with the right mapping.
      2. If it doesn't work, please, try making sure the IP and token are correct, by running the command miio-vacuum inspect id-or-address --token tokenAsHex.
        HINT: Try a couple of times, just in case there's a network glitch.
      3. If you can connect and see the details of your robot, try running the manual commands like explained in here.
        HINT: You can find the list of commands for your device in the Python project python-miio.

    My model is, allegedly, supported, but it fails to connect

    Run the command miio-vacuum inspect id-or-address --token tokenAsHex, replacing id-or-address with your vacuum's IP address and the tokenAsHex with a HEX representation of the token obtained earlier.
