None so far, works for me.  Your not streaming video from it, it doesn't need higher speeds

Why is this device 802.11G only?  Anyone see any drawbacks to that yet?

As stated it doesn't need a faster speed and range is the same. Only problem for me is most routers are generally slower when used in mixed mode vs. say only in "N". 99% of the crowd won't notice that difference either tho.

Anyone else seeing that the XML is not updated to reflect the "Cleaning" "Docked" or other statuses?  I can't even trigger other events based upon the cleaning or docked status

Plugin works great under ui7. I use it to auto start every morning and keep and eye on battery % and status. If she goes out a runs everyday I don't ever see the plugin or anything. Automation

You can buy the electronics, they are the same for all and thats how the roowifi works.

Yes, this is what I understood as well. I think IIRC, they offered a link to plans to 3D print the faceplate if people were interested. On the list to try.

Hi folks,

Just gotten my thinking Cleaner and created the device. I can control the roomba but I'm having a nag that it cannot detect device while everything is working fine (less if roomba didn't dock properly I will have issue to start cleaning). Any idea how can I get rid of that error message?

I've not restarted my Vera Edge though. Using Roomba 770. TIA!

That's only on the web setup UI. Your nice ImperiHome or Homewave apps will let you live in piece.

Are you still able to get the Thinking Cleaner module? It says unavilable on Amazon.

Yes, you can wait or you can go direct.

Its a small operation and they go in batches.

Getting ready to pull the trigger on one of these.  By the way, someone on Thingiverse has a printable cover with modification instructions.  Going to have a buddy print one and try it out.

Here is a link to the thing: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1219169/
