CLI tool to control lower energy actuator systems (office desks) through bluetooth.

Project description

# Bluedesk

Connects to a low energy actuator system via bluetooth and allows remote control via command line or internal managed interface.

## Supported and Tested Desks

> Other devices may also work.

# Requirements

## Prepare bluepy system dependencies:

The code needs an executable bluepy-helper to be compiled from C source. This is done automatically if you use the recommended pip installation method (see below). Otherwise, you can rebuild it using the Makefile in the bluepy directory.

To install the current released version, on most Debian-based systems:

$ sudo apt-get install python-pip libglib2.0-dev

On Fedora do:

$ sudo dnf install python-pip glib2-devel

For Python 3, you may need to use pip3:

$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip libglib2.0-dev

# Installation

sudo pip install bluedesk

> To use the command without sudo run this command:

sudo setcap ‘cap_net_raw,cap_net_admin+eip’ /usr/local/lib/(python3.7 OR your version)/dist-packages/bluepy/bluepy-helper

> where python3.7 is relative to your current used version.

# CLI Usage

## HELP

$ bluedesk -h

usage: bluedesk [-h] {connect} …

Controls lower energy actuator systems (office desks) via bluetooth.

positional arguments: {connect}

optional arguments: -h, –help show this help message and exit

## Connect

$ bluedesk connect

Scanning … [?] Choice device: Desk 8721 [e4:d1:a7:xx:xx:xx] > Desk 8721 [e4:d1:a7:xx:xx:xx] None [02:c3:85:xx:xx:xx]

Device: e4:d1:a7:xx:xx:xx connected successfully.

> Note: After the desk is connected, the CLI tool should provide additional actions:

usage: bluedesk [-h] {connect,disconnect,up,down,move} …

Controls lower energy actuator systems (office desks) via bluetooth.

positional arguments: {connect,disconnect,up,down,move}

optional arguments: -h, –help show this help message and exit

## Move up and down

$ bluedesk up

OR

$ bluedesk down

## Move to a specific position

$ bluedesk move –to 50

> This command will move the desk to the 50% height
