Just came across trying this out (had to learn that jq needs to be installed if the script is run on Linux, see here). Also learned that the eMail that is sent by Vorwerk contains a link that can only be opened on a device with the Kobold app installed.
@kl8ter, in the Neato binding, what’s the password that needs to be entered here? I now tried out my Kobold password, the OTP (6 digits) as well as the secret…
Do you by any chance remember where you set or maintain the password?
The reason why I’m asking: If you’re using the App, there’s no password anymore, but just an authentication-number which you receive via Mail instead of a password. And I do not find a login on the web anymore that still works with traditional username/password.
As I understand it now, you don’t need the neato account anymore, you just need to have an account with Vorwerk where your hoover is integrated.
Then run the *.bat file and enter your email address from the Vorwerk account. You will then receive an email with a code and enter it there: Then you will have everything you need:
As mentioned in my response above, I did obtain the token, secret and serial via the script. But unfortunately I can’t get the binding to find the robot.
Configuring the “Robot-Thing” is pretty straight forward: Both Serial and Secret are retrieved via the script. The “Neato-Account-Thing”, however, requires a password, which I can neither set nor obtain.
If I understood Vorwerk’s account policies correctly, there is no password (anymore). If I want to login (e.g. in the App), you only get a OTP via eMail, since the account does not have a fixed password anymore. And using the OTP as the Password in the “Neato-Account-Thing” also does not work.
Can you tell where you set or maintain the password which you entered into the “Neato-Account-Thing”?
I did not manage to get this running. Instead (though it could’ve been also a coincidence) the Neato-binding rendered my system very slow, at the brink of crashing from time to time. So I stopped trying and removed the Neato binding altogether.
Hello! I’ve just came upon this somewhat old thread and see my scripts disputed…
If you’re still looking for a solution, please check another thread I keep up with:
As yesterday reported, my fork still works for Vorwerk (official Neato Binding never supported it). You only need your serial and secret obtained with my script above. You don’t need to create a bridge, just use both values with proper vendor vorwerk to create your Vacuum Thing.
