Python API for Beward Cameras and Doorbells. This is used in Home Assistant component but should be generic enough that can be used elsewhere.


pip install beward

Usage example

import time

from beward import Beward

def handler(device, timestamp, alarm, state):
    print('Handling alarm "%s". State: %d' % (alarm, state))

DEVICE_USER = 'admin'
DEVICE_PASS = 'password'

bwd = Beward.factory(DEVICE_HOST, DEVICE_USER, DEVICE_PASS, stream=1)
bwd.listen_alarms(alarms=(ALARM_ONLINE, ALARM_MOTION, ALARM_SENSOR))

print('Live image URL:', bwd.live_image_url)
print('RTSP live video URL:', bwd.rtsp_live_video_url)
print('Live image:', bwd.camera_image())

for decade in range(10):
    print('Time: %ds' % (decade * 10))
