Python interface for Pax Calima Fan
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.

For more on using the tool, just run calima -h.
Set this to True in pycalima/Calima.py file if want to see more verbose output.
