Python interface for Pax Calima Fan

Project description

# Pycalima

Simple python interface against the Pax Calima® bathroom fan created and sold by Pax®

This module provides a very simple interface against the various GATT characteristics of the Calima fan, most importantly it handles the authentication so values are actually persisted within the fan.

Uses BluePy

## Installation

Install calima

$sudo python3 -m pip install calima

## Demo usage

from Calima import Calima

fan = Calima("MA:CC:AD:DR:ES:SS", "012345")

## Find MAC address

$sudo python3 -l

## Home Assistant integration

Please visit ‘<>’_.

## Command Line Tool

Pretty useful command line tool which among other things can print all the characteristics of a fan. It can also search for available fans if you don’t know the MAC address.

For more on using the tool, just run calima -h.

## Debugging

Set this to True in pycalima/ file if want to see more verbose output.

self._debug = False

## Documentation
