Thank you Abode for having a relatively simple API to reverse engineer. Hopefully in the future you’ll open it up for official use.

API calls faster than 60 seconds is not recommended as it can overwhelm Abode’s servers. Leverage the cloud push event notification functionality as much as possible. Please use this module responsibly.

$ abodepy -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD --lock ZW:xxxxxxxx --switchOn ZW:xxxxxxxx

  Locked device with id: ZW:xxxxxxxx
  Switched on device with id: ZW:xxxxxxxx

You can also block and listen for all mode and change events as they occur:

$ abodepy -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD --listen

  No devices specified, adding all devices to listener...
  Listening for device updates...
