Python language bindings for Embrava BlyncLight devices.

Project description

Latest version released on PyPi Apache license version 2.0 Python Versions

blynclight is a Python 3 package that provides bindings for the Embrava BlyncLight family of products. These bindings have been tested on MacOS and Linux using an Embrava V30 USB connected light.


  1. Install hidapi for your platform:
(rpm Linux distros)# yum install XXXX
(apt Linux distros)# apt-get install XXXX
(macOS using brew) $ brew install hidapi
  1. pip
$ pip3 install blynclight
  1. Clone the Repository
$ git clone
$ cd blynclight; pip3 install -e .


$ pip install poetry
$ git clone
$ cd blynclight
$ poetry shell
$ ..


$ pip3 uninstall blynclight


Once installed, the BlyncLight is yours to command!

from blynclight import BlyncLight

light = BlyncLight.get_light()

red, blue, green = (255, 0, 0), (0, 255, 0), (0, 0, 255)

light.color = green           # the light is off and green
light.on = True               # the light is on and green
light.flash = True            # the light is on, flashing and green
light.color = red             # the light is on, flashing and red
light.flash = False           # the light is on and red
light.bright = False          # the light is on, dim and red
light.color = blue            # the light is on, dim and blue
light.bright = True           # the light is on and blue
light.on = False              # the light is off and blue

Several command line interfaces are provided when blynclight is installed:

  • blync
    Provides command-line access to all light attributes.
  • fli
    Flashes the light.. impressively.
  • rainbow
    Smoothly transitions the color of the light in a rainbow pattern.
  • throbber
    Menacingly ramps the color intensity and then recedes. Over and over again.
