Unofficial iRobot Roomba python library (SDK).

Thanks to where much of the inner workings were derived from.

NEW V2.0c 16/3/2021 All new re-write.
NOTE: This is an ALPHA Release - it will have bugs in it - please report them to me

New Features

  • Now re-written as asyncio application
  • Only Python 3.6 and above are supported
  • supports 600, 900, i, and s series Roombas (all WiFi connected roombas)
  • Supports M6 Mop
  • new support for all configurations in config file (config.ini default)
  • better blid and password discovery, supports multiple robots discovery/config
  • Supports Multiple Roombas or Mops, any combination
  • supports self emptying base
  • New web interface for experimenting with real-time mapping
  • support V2.XX and 3.XX firmware
  • Supports Floor Plans for overlay on map


Only local connections are supported. The project was written to allow Openhab2 control, so if you integrate Roomba into Openhab2, you can control it from anywhere.

As only one connection at at time is allowed to the Roomba local mqtt server, when the library is connected to your Roomba, the app will connect via the cloud.

Tested with Python 3.6/Ubuntu 18.04

  • Python 3.6 or above is required
  • Python 2.x is not supported, please use the old version of Roomba980 for Python 2.7 compatibility
  • I have not tested on Windows, or anything othe than Ubuntu 18.04. use at your own risk on any other platform/OS
  • PyPi install is not supported (yet) The version on PyPi is the 1.x version!


  • Get your username/password easily (for multiple robots)
  • Auto discovery robot IP (optional)
  • Local API control
  • Remote API control (via your MQTT broker)
  • remote API control via REST interface (with web interface enabled)
  • Ability to send command to clean specific rooms (zones)
  • Json supported as command (so you can make your own commands)
  • NOT Firmware 1.6.x compatible.
  • Firmware 2.x.x/3.x.x compatible.
  • Multiple Roombas/Mops supported
  • Live Maps
  • Maps show locations of errors, bin full, cancelled runs
  • Supports Floor Plans for overlay on map
  • designed for openhab2 compatibility
  • HA compatibility
  • Built in Web Server for interactive control/Mapping
  • Simulation mode topic for easier debugging

Live Maps

Live tracking of Roomba location and track, updated in real time: iRobot Roomba cleaning map using roomba lib

This is a comparison of the actual Roomba track (left) vs the Rooba app generated map (right): iRobot Roomba cleaning map comparison

NOTE: Later Roombas only update their position every 5 seconds - they can move a long way in this time, so apparent "gaps" in the floor coverage may not be real.


If you have OpenCV installed, the library will use it to render the final map (on completion/error), it uses PIL for Live Maps, so the final map looks nicer. This uses a lot of processing power/memory, I don't know what happens if you try this on a RPi or other limited platform! Also, if you enable debugging mode (-D), intermediate maps (edges.png, final_map.png and so on) are drawn every time a new co-ordinate is reported (every second or so when running). This consumes a lot of resources You have been warned!.


Please use the latest version of pillow (V 4.1.1 at least), there are some nasty memory leaks in text processing in earlier versions that will quickly use up all your RAM and make the program unresponsive. The library will issue a warning if it detects an earlier version of PIL.

If you do not have PIL installed, the system will not draw maps (even if enabled), even if you have OpenCV. PIL is used for basic image manipulations. If you do not specifically enable maps, no maps will be drawn. uses maps, but the class default is to disable maps, so in your own scripts, if you want maps, you have to enable them (after creating the object).


The following libraries/modules are used. Some are optional:

  • paho-mqtt optional
  • PIL/pillow optional
  • openCV optional
  • numpy optional (used by openCV)
  • aiohttp optional (used for optional web server)

This script/library is intended to forward roomba data/commands to/from a local MQTT server (this is optional though). In this case, you need paho-mqtt installed

pip install paho-mqtt

If you want the REST interface, or the built in web server, you need aiohttp installed:

pip install aiohttp

For map drawing, you need at least PIL installed (preferably the latest version of pillow)

pip install pillow

For fancy maps, you need openCV installed (V2,3,4). The installation of this can be complex, so I leave that up to you. Maps works without it, but it's nicer with it.

In all cases pip may be pip3 depending on your default python configuration


First you need python 3.6 or later installed and then:
Clone this repository:

git clone
cd Roomba980-Python/roomba

Make sure you have the dependancies listed in Roomba980-Python/requirements.txt installed. You can do this by running:

pip install -r ../requirements.txt

Note: This may be pip3 depending on your configuration.

run ./roomba -h (or python3 ./ to get the available options. This is what you will get:

quick start

With the roomba on the dock and charged (and connected to wifi), stand by the roomba and run



python ./


python3 ./

Follow the instructions, the script will attempt to find the roomba, obtain the IP, blid, and password - then save these to a local configuration file (config.ini by default). If this works, the program will then start displaying messages from your Roomba, and printing the master_state every few seconds. the results are logged to a log file (roomba.log by default).
NOTE: You will have to press and hold the HOME button on your robot until it plays a series of tones (about 2 seconds). Release the button and your robot will flash WIFI light to discover your Roomba.

On future runs (Once successful), these values will be taken from the configuration file, so you only have to do this once. You can manually specify these on the command line, some example start up bash scripts are supplied. You can also edit the config.ini file, to add options for each defined robot. I advise you to experiment with the map size (if you are using maps), as that is the one variable that isn't totally automatic. the size, position of the dock etc depend on your house layout. the syntax of the map layout is (map x,map y, dock x, dock y, map rotation, roomba rotation). you can use the interactive Web Server to experiment with different settings to se what fits best.

Example output

Logging is supported with the python standard logging module (the logger is Roomba)

NOTE: If you get an error like:

[ERROR](Roomba.Upstairs     ) Connection Error: _ssl.c:835: The handshake operation timed out
[ERROR](Roomba.Upstairs     ) Connection Error: timed out

It usually means something else is already connected to the Roomba, force close the app, and reboot the roomba (press and hold the Clean button for 20 seconds). You should then be able to connect.

How to get your username/blid and password

You can get it automatically as described in quick start, or you can run:


either with or without the IP address of your roomba.

./ -R <roomba IP>

You can also specify a config file other than the default (-h for options). Results are displayed and saved to the config file.


By default, all settings are stored in the config.ini file. You can change this file if you like (but there is really no need).
An exaple file config_example.ini is given to show the structure of the file. It is a standard ini file with each section being the ip address of each robot.
Any setting that can be added on the command line can be entered in the config.ini file. The key is the same as the long format of the cli setting. This allows you to make different settings for different robots.
NOTE: Anything entered in the config.ini file overrides the command line setting.


The API calls are properties or methods of two classes (see for an example of how to use the password class)

  • password
  • Roomba

In practice you should only need to use the Roomba class, which contains a reference to the password class (the get_passwd property).


password(address='', file="./config.ini")
Roomba(address=None, blid=None, password=None, topic="#", roombaName="", file="./config.ini", log=None, webport=None)

If you have a config.ini file, you just need to supply address (ip address of the robot), the blid and password and roombaName will be filled in from info in the config.ini file.

Roomba methods/properties

There are now async methods as well
NOTE: set_cleanSchedule needs more work for i, M and s series
NOTE: auto_rotate has been removed, as it was proving difficult to support

Sync methods

set_preference(preference, setting)
set_mqtt_client(mqttc=None, brokerFeedback="")
set_options(raw=False, indent=0, pretty_print=False, max_sqft=0)
get_property(property, cap=False)
enable_map(enable=False, mapSize="(800,1500,0,0,0,0)",
           mapPath=".", iconPath = "./", roomOutline=True,
           floorplan = None,
           roomba_size=(50,50), draw_edges = 30, auto_rotate=False)

Async methods

async_set_preference(preference, setting)


cleanMissionStatus_phase    #same as phase


If you have multiple roomba's, each roomba has it's own name, and this will be automatically used to differentiate them. feedback is published to \roomba\feedback\<roomba name>\, commands go to \roomba\command\<roomba name> and settings to \roomba\setting\<roomba name>. Maps and so on have prepended to them. You can manually specify the roomba name when you create the object, as long as you specify blid and password as well. If you only supply the address, all other values will be retrieved from the config.ini file if you have one, and will override your other settings, including roombaName and webport (if webport is defined in config.ini).

Using the library in your python script

Both these scripts are in the examples directory, as and To use them, copy them from examples to the main directory. Edit them to include your own roomba ip address, blid and password, and run python For "" you also need to add your mqtt broker adddress, username, and password. Then run python
You will need an event loop running, to use the interface.

There are diferent entries/values for i and s series.
in raw mode, the json from the Roomba is passed directly to the mqtt topic (usually /roomba/feedback/), in normal mode, each json item is decoded and published as a seperate topic. To see the topic published and their values run:

mosquitto_sub -v -t /roomba/feedback/#

In addition state and error_message are published which are derived by the class.


  • Commands are:

    • "start"
    • "stop"
    • "pause"
    • "resume"
    • "dock"
    • "evac" (only with clean base)
    • "reset"
    • "locate"
  • Settings are:

    • carpetBoost true
    • vacHigh true
    • openOnly true this is edge clean - set to false to enable edge cleaning
    • noAutoPasses true
    • twoPass true
    • binPause true

You publish this as a string to your mqtt broker topic /roomba/command/ or /roomba/setting/ (or whatever you have defined if you change these from default) Ubuntu example (assuming the broker is on your localhost) - should work for any linux system with mosquitto installed (user and password may be required).

mosquitto_pub -t "/roomba/command/Upstairs" -m "start"
mosquitto_pub -t "/roomba/setting/Upstairs" -m "carpetBoost true"

Or call directly from a python script (see simple example above).
Or use with the REST interface

REST interface

To enable the REST interface, enter a value for webport in the Roomba contstructor. eg:

myroomba = Roomba(address, blid, roombaPassword, webport=8200)

The web interface is now available in a web browser at http://localhost:8200/map/map.html

REST api

The end points for the REST api are:

  • GET
    • /api/local/map/
    • /api/local/info/
    • /api/local/action/
    • /api/local/config/
  • POST
    • /api/local/action/
    • /map/values

GET usage

You can call the GET endpoints from a web browser, or via curl etc. eg http://localhost:8200/api/local/info/state which will return the current state as json. Any sub setting can be used (such as lastCommand) Where localhost is the ip/hostname of the host that the server is running on, and 8200 is the webport you set (individual to each roomba)

The /api/local/map/ enpoint has two options mapsize and outline: mapsize gives the current map size settings as json outline gives the current roomba path as base 64 encoded png data (for use in web pages, I don't advise calling it directly). The /api/local/info/ endpoint accepts any configured value on the Roomba (eg batInfo, cleanMissionStatus etc, and returns json. It will return null for the value if the configuration does not exist. eg for cleanMissionStatus:

"cleanMissionStatus": {
    "cycle": "none",
    "phase": "charge",
    "expireM": 0,
    "rechrgM": 0,
    "error": 0,
    "notReady": 0,
    "mssnM": 0,
    "expireTm": 0,
    "rechrgTm": 0,
    "mssnStrtTm": 1612533591,
    "initiator": "schedule",
    "nMssn": 79

Notice the queried value is always returned as part of the json. /api/local/info also accepts some special values. These are:

  • 'sys'
  • 'lastwireless'
  • 'week'
  • 'preferences'
  • 'mission'
  • 'missionbasic'
  • 'wirelessconfig'
  • 'wireless'
  • 'cloud'

These give composite reports of multiple values (or are aliases for other settings).

/api/local/action allows you to send a command to the robot, such as start or dock eg http://localhost:8200/api/local/action/start would start the roomba cleaning.
You can also start the cleaning of a specific room by adding arguments for pmap_id and region:
http://localhost:8200/api/local/action/cleanRoom?pmap_id=HGAHGGSHGS&regions=1,2,3 Would start cleaning region 1, 2 and 3 of pmap HGAHGGSHGS. if you leave pmap_id out, the first pmap found is used. You can use pmaps in \api\local\info to find out your pmaps. Which region is which you have to work out for your self. cleanRoom is an alias for start, it just makes the intention clearer.

/api/local/config/ is the same as /api/local/info but the name queried is not returned as part of the json. eg batInfo returns:

    "mDate": "2020-8-19",
    "mName": "F12432712",
    "mDaySerial": 560,
    "mData": "303031303035303300000000000000000000000000",
    "mLife": "0BE90B5410120C8D4A97000A0719EDBA0121FD531F110000000003B300000000",
    "cCount": 13,
    "afCount": 0

and special values are not accepted. You can query any value in the roomba configuration, null is returned if it does not exist (or is null).

POST Usage

There are only two endpoints you can post to, and currently /map/values does nothing (future use).
The only end point that it mnakes sense to post to is /api/local/action/ which is used to send a command to the roomba. You can use GET to send simple commands (like start, dock etc), but if you want to send a more complex command, then you need to use json. A complex command would look like this:

"lastCommand": {
  "command": "clean",
  "time": 1612918962,
  "initiator": "alexa",
  "ordered": 1,
  "pmap_id": "v3R-QnXXXXXXXXXURA",
  "regions": [
    "region_id": "5"
  "user_pmapv_id": null,
  "robot_id": null,
  "select_all": null

you can use /api/local/info/lastCommand to figure out what the format of the last command you sent was (and get the pmap_id and regions), and post your own json to /api/local/action/ to replicate a command.
You would POST:

  "command": "clean",
  "time": 1612918962,
  "initiator": "alexa",
  "ordered": 1,
  "pmap_id": "v3R-QnXXXXXXXXXURA",
  "regions": [
    "region_id": "5"
  "user_pmapv_id": null,
  "robot_id": null,
  "select_all": null

To copy the last command example.
Note that with this example, you could get the same result by using GET to /api/local/action/cleanRoom?pmap_id=v3R-QnXXXXXXXXXURA&regions=5, and if you only had one pmap, you could even leave that out - /api/local/action/cleanRoom?regions=5 would do the same thing.

Web Interface

The web interface can be used for debugging. You can watch value update as roomba runs, or is simulated. You can interactively change the size/rotation of the map, to get the values correct for your floor plan.
It is available on http://Your_Server_IP:webport/map/map.html Each roomba would have it's own webport, which you specify at startup. See REST Interface for details.
The Web interface looks like this:
NOTE: Save values currently just displays the entry you need to manually make in the config.ini file. it does not actually "save" anything. It may do in the future...

iRobot Roomba Web Interface If you restart the server, you need to refresh/reload the web page.

NOTE: I do not use these rules anymore, as I have moved over to the HabApp rules engine (see, so they probably won't work properly anymore
NOTE: You will have to change the roomba item names to match your roomba item names eg upstairs_roomba_command etc.

These use one of my functions getTimestamp, here it is:

val Functions$Function2<GenericItem, String, String> getTimestamp = [  //function (lambda) to get a timestamp. Returns formatted string and optionally updates an item
    date_format |

    var date_time_format = date_format
    if(date_format == "" || date_format == null) date_time_format = "%1$ta %1$tT" //default format Day Hour:Minute:Seconds
    var String Timestamp = String::format( date_time_format, new Date() )
    if(item != NULL && item != null) {
        var Integer time = now().getMillis()    //current time (/1000?)
        var cal = new java.util.GregorianCalendar()
        cal.setTimeInMillis(time)  //timestamp in unix format
        var t = new DateTimeType(cal)

        if(item instanceof DateTimeItem) {
            postUpdate(item, t)
            logInfo("Last Update", + " DateTimeItem updated at: " + Timestamp )
        else if(item instanceof StringItem) {
            postUpdate(item, Timestamp)
            logInfo("Last Update", + " StringItem updated at: " + Timestamp )
            logWarn("Last Update", + " is not DateTime or String - not updating")

I also have various roomba icons in /etc/openhab2/icons/classic

These are here in openhab/icons, copy them to /etc/openhab2/icons/classic.
Items and transforms are there also.


See roomba_map.html - for openhab2 copy this to /etc/openhab2/html (same location as map.png will go in), now you can see the live maps via http://your_OH_ip:port/static/roomba_map.html in your browser. I use a subdirectory to avoid cluttering the root html directory, just be consistent in the pathnames, and make sure the directory exists (with write permission) before running!
If you specify a map location when starting the file will be generated automatically.


start_openhab_roomba is a bash script that starts roomba with the maps in the right location (on Ubuntu) for openhab2, you may have to change this location for other systems (windows, RPi, etc), depending on how you installed Openhab2. You need the mqtt binding installed as well.
In the above rules/sitemap replace your_OH_ip:port with your own Openhab2 ip and port - to use this from anywhere, these should be externally available (from outside your own network) addresses, otherwise you can only access then from within your own network (e-mail attachments should work though).


You can start in debugging mode using -D switch, this produces a lot more information in the logs, and saves more files. It also uses more CPU cycles.

There is a utility included, this takes the log output, and replays it throught the server, so you can simulate Rooba runs, without actually having to run the Roomba.
This is the help output:

usage: [-h] [-n ROOMBANAME] [-pn PUBROOMBANAME]
                     [-m MISSIONSTART] [-s] [-C BROKERCOMMAND] [-b BROKER]
                     [-p PORT] [-U USER] [-P PASSWORD]

Replay Roomba log to test mapping

positional arguments:
  log                   path/name of log file (default: None)

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
                        optional Roomba name (default: "")
                        optional Roomba name to publish to (default: "")
                        optional date/time to start parsing from, format is
                        "2021-01-13 14:57:06" (default: None)
  -s, --start_mission   Start Mission immediately (default: False)
                        Topic on broker to publish commands to (default:
  -b BROKER, --broker BROKER
                        ipaddress of MQTT broker (default: None)
  -p PORT, --port PORT  MQTT broker port number (default: 1883)
  -U USER, --user USER  MQTT broker user name (default: None)
  -P PASSWORD, --password PASSWORD
                        MQTT broker password (default: None)

To use this, enter the same broker information as used to start, enter the path to a log file, with a Roomba mission captured in it, and use -n to enter the name of the Roomba you want to replay the run for. The mission start will be found automatically, or you can specify -s to start immediately. You can also optionally use -m ro set a start date/time - just use " around the date/time string.

For example:

./ ./roomba.log -b my_MQTT_broker_IP -m "2021-02-10 09:25:43" -n Upstairs

Would start searching roomba.log for a "New Mission" for roomba called "Upstairs" after 2021-02-10 09:25:43, and then start publishing the Roomba data in the log to the MQTT simulation topic for that roomba.
If you used the -s switch, publishing would start immediately, without looking for the "new Mission" event. If you leave the date/time out, publishing starts with the first event in the log.


I'm just using some roomba icons I found on the web, if you have better roomba icons, please let me know.
Update the example map shown here, it's an older version, the new ones are a little nicer.
