  • Import the module
from aquosRemote.aquos import AquosTV

aquos = AquosTV('IP.ADD.RESS.XX')
  • TV Commands
aquos.on() # Turns on TV # Puts TV into standby mode

aqous.set_standbymode() # Enables standby mode

aquos.toggle_power() # Toggle power

aquos.toggle_power_source() # Toggle power source

aqous.delay() # Waits a certian time # Play button (⏯)

aquos.pause() # Pause button (⏯)

aqous.stop() # Stop button

aquos.rewind() # Rewind button (⏪)

aqous.fast_forward() # Fast forward button (⏩)

aquos.rewind() # Skip forward button (⏭)

aquos.rewind() # Skip back button (⏮)

aqous.up() # Up button (▲)

aqous.down() # Down button (▼)

aqous.left() # Left button (◄)

aqous.right() # Right button (►)

aqous.enter() # Enter button

aqous.remote_return() # Stop button

aqous.exit() # Exit button

aqous.volume_up() # Turns volume up

aqous.volume_down() # Turns volume down

aquos.volume_repeat(x) # Turns volume up x times up or down

aquos.set_volume(xx) # Sets TV volume 0-100

aquos.toggle_mute() # Toggles mute

aqous.set_mute(boolean) # Sets mute to boolean

aquos.mute_on() # Turns mute on

aquos.mute_off() # Turns mute off

aquos.set_input(x) # Sets TV input to input x

aquos.toggle_3d() # Toggles 3D # Opens Netflix

aquos.smart_central() # Opens Smart Central

aquos.get_device_name() # Gets TV device name

aquos.get_model_name() # Gets TV model name

aquos.get_software_version() # Gets TV software version

aquos.get_ip_protocol_version() # Gets TV ip protocol

aquos.get_info() # Returns all above info into a pretty string

Note: on function will work only after you use the setup=True argument or after you turn off tv using this function, then un-plug and re-plug-in the tv.


An example program would look like:

from aquosRemote.aquos import AquosTV

aquos = AquosTV('IP.ADD.RESS.XX') # Without auth and setup
aquos = AquosTV('IP.ADD.RESS.XX', setup=True) # With setup
aquos = AquosTV('IP.ADD.RESS.XX', 'username', 'password') # With auth
aquos = AquosTV('IP.ADD.RESS.XX', verbose=True) # With verbose


This has been tested with Python 2.6 and Python 3.6.
