A basic example is included below. Please see the examples directory for more.:
import time from alarmdecoder import AlarmDecoder from alarmdecoder.devices import USBDevice def main(): """ Example application that prints messages from the panel to the terminal. """ try: # Retrieve the first USB device device = AlarmDecoder(USBDevice.find()) # Set up an event handler and open the device device.on_message += handle_message with device.open(): while True: time.sleep(1) except Exception, ex: print 'Exception:', ex def handle_message(sender, message): """ Handles message events from the AlarmDecoder. """ print sender, message.raw if __name__ == '__main__': main()
