Control a Kamoer Dripping Pro pump
Control your Kamoer Dripping Pro plant irrigation pump with Python.
You can read more about the idea behind this in this blog post.
pip3 install btdripper
You can run
btdripper.py from the command line.
$ btdripper.py --help usage: btdripper.py [-h] [--adapter ADAPTER] [--mac MAC] [--duration DURATION] Dripper Pro SDK Demo optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --adapter ADAPTER Name of Bluetooth adapter, defaults to 'hci0' --mac MAC Mac address of Dripper Pro device to connect to --duration DURATION Duration in seconds to turn on the pump. Default is 1s
Or you can directly import it into your project
$ python Python 3.6.8 (default, Jan 14 2019, 11:02:34) >>> import btdripper >>> dripper = btdripper.BtDripper() >>> dripper.on() >>> dripper.off()
First, you need to create a new
When you use an empty constructor, the library will try to connect to the first BLE device called "grow_c" that it finds.
If you already know your dripper's MAC address, you can provide it as a parameter to speed up connection. The parameter is
mac_address and it takes an address in the format
Should you have more than one bluetooth adapter, you can supply that with the
adapter_name parameter (default is
There is also a way to reuse a
gatt.DeviceManager via the
manager parameter if you need to support more than one bluetooth device.
The BtDripper class supports the following methods:
on- turns dripper on
off- turns dripper off
send_sequence- sends a sequence of user-defined byte strings, should you want to experiment yourself.
Note that if you send malformed custom sequences, it can cause the driiper's software to hang. It will not reconnect and only a power cycle helps.
This is a very basic implementation. It should be possible to find out how the timer mode works and integrate that. Maybe there is even a way to run the pump at lower speeds?
There are currently no timeouts or error handling. Also I wouldn't be surprised if the library breaks in an unexpected situation. Use at your own risk :)
