This library (and its accompanying cli tool) can be used to interface with devices using Xiaomi’s miIO and MIoT protocols.

Getting started

The miiocli command allows controlling supported devices from the command line, given that you know their IP addresses and tokens. You can use miiocli cloud command to obtain this information from the cloud. Refer to Getting started section of the manual for more detailed instructions.

You can always use --help to get more information about available commands, subcommands, and their options. For example, to print out options and available commands:

$ miiocli --help
Usage: miiocli [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

  -d, --debug
  -o, --output [default|json|json_pretty]
  --help                          Show this message and exit.


You can get some information from any miIO/MIoT device, including its device model, using the info command:

miiocli device --ip <ip> --token <token> info

Model: some.device.model1
Hardware version: esp8285
Firmware version: 1.0.1_0012
Network: {'localIp': '<ip>', 'mask': '', 'gw': '<ip>'}
AP: {'rssi': -73, 'ssid': '<nnetwork>', 'primary': 11, 'bssid': '<bssid>'}

Controlling MIoT devices

MiOT devices are supported by the genericmiot integration which provides basic support for all MiOT devices. Internally, it downloads miot-spec files to find out about supported features. All features of supported devices are available using these common commands:

-  ``miiocli genericmiot status`` to print the device status information, including settings (prefixed with ``[S]``).
-  ``miiocli genericmiot set`` to change settings.
-  ``miiocli genericmiot actions`` to list available actions.
-  ``miiocli genericmiot call`` to execute actions.

Use miiocli genericmiot --help for more available commands.

Controlling other devices

Older devices are mainly supported by their corresponding modules (e.g., roborockvacuum or fan).

You can get the list of available commands for any given module by passing --help argument to it:

$ miiocli roborockvacuum --help

Usage: miiocli roborockvacuum [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

  --ip TEXT       [required]
  --token TEXT    [required]
  --id-file FILE
  --help          Show this message and exit.

  add_timer                Add a timer.

Each command invocation will automatically detect the device model necessary for some actions by querying the device. You can avoid this by specifying the model manually:

miiocli roborockvacuum --model roborock.vacuum.s5 --ip <ip> --token <token> start

API usage

All functionalities of this library are accessible through the miio module. While you can initialize individual integration classes manually, the simplest way to obtain a device instance is to use DeviceFactory:

from miio import DeviceFactory

dev = DeviceFactory.create("<ip address>", "<token>")

This will perform an info query to the device to detect its model information, which is crucial especially for MiOT devices.

Introspecting supported features

You can introspect device classes using the following methods:

-  ``actions()`` to return information about available device actions.
-  ``settings()`` to obtain information about available settings that can be changed.
-  ``sensors()`` to obtain information about sensors.

Each of these return device descriptor objects, which contain the necessary metadata about the available features to allow constructing generic interfaces.


You can find some solutions for the most common problems can be found in Troubleshooting section.

Projects using this library

This library is used by various projects to support MiIO/MiOT devices. If you are using this library for your project, feel free to open a PR to get it listed here!

Home Assistant (official)

Home Assistant uses this library to support several platforms out-of-the-box. This list is incomplete as the platforms (in parentheses) may also support other devices listed above.


This project was started to allow controlling locally available Xiaomi Vacuum cleaner robot with Python (hence the old name python-mirobo), however, thanks to contributors it has been extended to allow controlling other Xiaomi devices using the same protocol miIO protocol. (another source for vacuum-specific documentation)

First and foremost thanks for the nice people over ioBroker forum who figured out the encryption to make this library possible. Furthermore thanks goes to contributors of this project who have helped to extend this to cover not only the vacuum cleaner.
