Get roomba status?

I often start roomba manually and then leave the house. I want to create a rule: “If roomba is running, turn on virtual switch” and then use that virtual switch to keep the SHM from arming when I leave the house (presense sensor). Any idea how to do that? IFTTT has applets to start roomba, but nothing to get roomba status.

There is an IFTTT trigger for when it starts and an IFTTT trigger for when it stops, so doesn’t that do it?

Turn the virtual switch on when it starts and turn it off when it stops so if it’s on the roomba is running.

If you want full status, you’ll have to get a bit geek. Read the thread below, I am currently using it on I7’s and looks like this
