I recently purchased a Mi Robot Vac Generation 1. I cannot get it to connect to the Xiaomi Home App.
During the adding process it does the following:
Device connected (works)
Sending message to device (works)
Connecting device to network (fails)
It tells me to "Bring device closer to router"
The Wi-Fi password is correct
The router is connected to the internet
My phone is connected to the network
My Wi-Fi is a 2.4GHz network
I have tried with android and ios and same result.
I have reset the vac a number of times and the router and the phones.
My friend (who has been using a Mi robot vac for years) took it to his house and tried to add it to his router but the same issue.
To rule out it being a faulty vac he decided to reset his own vac and now he can't add his either! Oops
I have looked through some other forums and people have mentioned being able to get it to work using an old iphone with the old version of Xiaomi home on it.
Has anyone recently purchased a Xi Robot and had success?
My father purchased the second gen not long ago and that connects fine so I am wondering whether first gen is no longer supported?
Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated!
