If you have a Roomba and want it to clean your home with the magic and control of Smartthings, this is for you! Using this device type and smart app you can integrate your Roomba with the Thinking Cleaner wifi module and control when and how it cleans your house.
This original Device Type and Smart App was created by @sidjohn1 but due to lack of support, I have been requested by the community members to continue my improvements and customization in a new thread. I will continue attempting to support this Device Type and Smart App and only ask that if you appreciate my efforts please donate to my preferred local charity as a thank you:
You will need to have the Thinking Cleaner wifi module installed on your Roomba per the below link.
The module was built for the 500/600 model but if you remove from the housing it will also work on the 700/800 model per Thinking Cleaner. If you have an 700/800 model the below links are for the 3d printed cover:

Once you have installed the Thinking Cleaner wifi module and configure per instructions, below are the Device Type and Smart App for Smartthings integration.
GITHUB INTEGRATION HELP
PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THE NAME OF THE DEVICE TYPE OR THE SMART APP AS IT WILL CAUSE PROBLEMS THAT MAY BE DIFFICULT TO TROUBLESHOOT. IF YOU DO MAKE CHANGES TO THE CODE FROM GITHUB, I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO HELP SUPPORT IT FOR YOU.
MANUAL INSTALLATION HELP:
Once you have the Device Type and Smart App working, you can use any Smart App to use the Roomba as a switch On is clean and Off is Dock. For the full flexibility of your needs you may want to use CoRE (Community’s own Rules Engine).
