From Dick Smith, took about 10 days to arrive which was good.

 

 

 

However everything was in Chinese, not too helpful - thanks Disk Smith who say "we have gone paperless".

 

 

 

i went to Xiomi website and got the manuals, but my big question is where does one find the robot vacuum app?

 

 

 

I download Mi Home on an iPad , which is in english, but it only seems to deal with smart lights.

 

 

 

The other Mi Home I downloaded on my iphone is all in chinese, not much help.

 

 

 

Could some kind soul tell me where to find the App on iOs?

 

 

 

Cheers

I don't personally have a Xiaomi robot vacuum, but if it works like their rice cooker, you might have to set your locale on the Mi Home app to the Mainland China locale (and set the language to English) to see your device.  It will then disappear again if you switch locales (and subsequently reappear when you switch back to Mainland China).
