DucoBox

Script to monitor a Duco ventilation system.

Installation

Every release is uploaded to pip so it can be installed simply by using pip.

# Python2
pip2 install duco.ducobox

# Python3
pip3 install duco.ducobox

Usage

After installation, the python module is available

  • as executable, to launch from terminal:
ducobox --help
  • as python module, to launch from terminal:
python -m duco.ducobox --help
  • as python module, to import in your script:
import duco.ducobox as duco

Stored configuration

The network configuration of your setup is stored in an ini-file. If the network configuration file is not found, it is created.

The script first tries to find all of the nodes in the network, by executing the network command. It creates objects for all of the found nodes. If nodes are found, the network configuration is saved to the provided network configuration file.

The network configuration file gives an overview of all the nodes with their specific parameters. These fields can be adapted for each node:

  • name: convenience name for the node (any string)
  • blacklist: flag to blacklist (don’t use this node) from the network (True, or False)

The rest of the fields should not be adapted outside the script.

Logging data

The script can log the sampled data to a database.

InfluxDB

Data can be logged to an influxDB server, by passing a configuration file to the –influxdb option of the script.

Format of this configuration file through an example:

[InfluxDB]
url = localhost
port = 8086
user = root
password = root
database = ducobox-example

Other databases

The script is setup in a generic way, so adding more kinds of databases should be easy.

Hints

Serial cable details

TODO: provide serial cable details

Allowing non-root user to access serial port (Ubuntu, Linux)

  1. Add user to dialout group:
adduser <username> dialout
  1. Use udev to allow users of dialout group to serial device

Content for /etc/udev/rules.d/50-ttyusb.rules

SUBSYSTEM=="tty", KERNEL=="ttyUSB0", GROUP="dialout", MODE="0660"
  1. Reboot
reboot

InfluxDB and Grafana

The script was in first place designed to log sample data to an InfluxDB server. Grafana can be used as a frontend to create views on the InfluxDB data.
