Script to monitor a Duco ventilation system.


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


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. The name of every node can be adapted by the user, in order to easily recognize the nodes. The rest of the fields should not be adapted outside the script.

The main contributor to this project has a limited Duco ventilation system, with not too much devices:

  • DucoBox Silent
  • Humidity box sensor
  • Remote control on battery

The python module was not tested on other devices, allthough some effort was done in order to support them.
