2. Confirm the IP address to which Braava M6 is connected with the official application.

This process often fails. Please check the following points and try several times.

  • Is the environment installing Rumba and homebridge connected to the same wifi?
  • Is Rumba in the Dock and in a charged state?
  • Please try running "npm run getpassword 192.16.xx.xx" after the sound has sounded after pressing the home button of the room for 2 seconds
  • Please check the version of Node.js. I confirmed that it works with "v7.7.1", "v8.9.0" or "v9.1.0".

If successful, the following message will be displayed. Please check "blid" and "Password" of displayed message.

Robot Data:

blid is 0123456789abcdef. password is :1:2345678910:ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP.
