local API support, MQTT REST etc

Hi .
Lots of homeautomationsystems use MQTT. I use openHAB (Home Assistant, housebot etc. use/support MQTT). Just basic functions at start as command and status. local net only, Pure I9 just need to connect to local brooker, Wish list: getting access to all data even the map.
(yes you have the IFTTT but that is too slow, too cumbersome to set up commands).
Use case easy to setup in houseautomation system: start cleaning when house locked/alarmed, pause cleaning when phone or doorbell rings, timeout alert when not return to charge, stop cleaning when house is set to sleep etc..

PS. I use IFTTT to openHAB today and it works ok for Pure I9 status but have a delay of >10 min on commands, need to set up 1 applet for each command (help me if i am doing wrong) DS.

  • I agree. Just documentation on the existing API, explaining how to send commands to the robot, would be sufficient. I'm guessing that the robot already has some kind of TCP API.

    With such documentation, the community could take it from there and create integrations.

  • This is very much needed. My scenario would be "clean entrance area (defined on the map) 5 minutes after family enters the apartment" in addition to managing weekend off-schedule cleanings when nobody is at home.

  • +1 for API; anything really to help connect to home automation systems such as HomeBridge or NodeRed. Connecting to IFTTT is a good first step but lacks integration with Apple Home.
