Python package for controlling Neato pybotvac Connected vacuum robot

Project description

pybotvac

This is an unofficial API for controlling Neato Botvac Connected vacuum robots. The code is based on https://github.com/kangguru/botvac and credit for reverse engineering the API goes to Lars Brillert @kangguru

Disclaimer

This API is experimental. Use at your own risk. Feel free to contribute if things are not working.

Installation

Install using pip

pip install pybotvac

Alternatively, clone the repository and run

python setup.py install

Usage

Robot

If the serial and secret for your robot is known, simply run

>>> from pybotvac import Robot
>>> robot = Robot('OPS01234-0123456789AB', '0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF', 'my_robot_name')
>>> print(robot)
Name: sample_robot, Serial: OPS01234-0123456789AB, Secret: 0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF

The format of the serial should be 'OPSxxxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx', and the secret should be a string of hex characters 32 characters long. These can be found by using the Account class.

To start cleaning

robot.start_cleaning()

If no exception occurred, your robot should now get to work.

Currently the following methods are available in the Robot class:

  • get_robot_state()
  • start_cleaning()
  • pause_cleaning()
  • stop_cleaning()
  • send_to_base()
  • enable_schedule()
  • disable_schedule()
  • get_schedule()

For convenience, properties exist for state and schedule

# Get state
state = robot.state

# Check if schedule is enabled
robot.schedule_enabled

# Disable schedule
robot.schedule_enabled = False

Account

If the serial and secret is unknown, they can be retrieved using the Account class.

>>> from pybotvac import Account
>>> # List all robots associated with account
>>> for robot in Account('sample@email.com', 'sample_password').robots:
    print(robot)

Name: my_robot_name, Serial: OPS01234-0123456789AB, Secret: 0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF, Traits: ['maps']

Information about maps and download of maps can be done from the Account class:

>>> from pybotvac import Account
>>> # List all maps associated with a specific robot
>>> for map_info in Account('sample@email.com', 'sample_password').maps:
    print(map_info)

A cleaning map can be downloaded with the account class. Returns the raw image response. Example shows latest map. You need the url from the map output to do that:

>>> from pybotvac import Account
>>> # List all maps associated with a specific robot
>>> map = Account('sample@email.com', 'sample_password').maps
>>> download_link = map['robot_serial']['maps'][0]['url']
    Account('sample@email.com', 'sample_password').get_map_image('download_link')
