Viomi

These pages guide you through the installation steps for viomi robots. Support is still somewhat experimental, see below for details.

The default settings here will be for running Valetudo on the robot itself. If you want to develop as well, check out the Local Development section.

There’s a tool to automate rooting and Valetudo installation.

Please give it a try and file any issues that you encounter there.

Robot setup

First, you need to get root access to your Robot.

If you decide to install Valetudo manually, you’ll need to set up the robot to talk to your host instead of the xiaomi cloud:

ssh root@vacuum
sed -i 's/110.43.0.8./127.00.00.1/g' /usr/bin/miio_client
for domain in "" de. ea. in. pv. ru. sg. st. tw. us.; do
  echo "127.0.0.1 ${domain}ot.io.mi.com ${domain}ott.io.mi.com" >> /etc/hosts
done
reboot

Deploying

Run

npm run build

And deploy the valetudo binary to your robot:

scp valetudo root@vacuum:/mnt/UDISK/

# Setup init scripts (only needed once and only if not already done by rooting script)
(cd deployment/viomi; tar cv . | ssh root@vacuum "cd /; tar x")

Local Development Setup

Follow the development guide.

Firmware updates

You can perform firmware updates up to v3.5.3_0047 without risking root (see the firmware update analysis for details).

Important: Make sure you use ssh-keys and don’t rely on password login otherwise your root access may be lost.

To perform a firmware upgrade you currently need to:

Uninstall Valetudo

This will remove Valetudo, free the diskspace and re-enable the cloud interface.

ssh root@vacuum
/etc/init.d/valetudo stop
rm /etc/init.d/valetudo /mnt/UDISK/valetudo
rm /overlay/usr/bin/miio_client

Enable logging

Add the following to the system section in /etc/config/system (adjust ip and port as necessary):

option log_ip 192.168.1.10
option log_port 8054
option log_proto tcp

After a reboot you can receive logs using netcat:

netcat -l4 8054

See the OpenWrt Runtime Logging Guide for details.
