Communicate with the AVM FRITZ!Box
Python-Tool to communicate with the AVM Fritz!Box. Uses the TR-064 protocol over UPnP.
For installation use pip
$ pip install fritzconnection or $ pip install fritzconnection[qr]
The latter will install the dependency to enable QR-code creation for wifi login.
Using fritzconnection is as easy as:
from fritzconnection import FritzConnection fc = FritzConnection(address='192.168.178.1') fc.reconnect() # get a new external ip from the provider print(fc) # print router model informations
Here the fc.reconnect() is a shortcut. The basic method FritzConnection provides to access the FritzOS-API is the call_action() method. A reconnection by means of call_action() would look like this:
fc = FritzConnection(address='192.168.178.1') fc.call_action("WANIPConn1", "ForceTermination")
The method call_action() expects a service- and an action-name (and optional arguments). In general FritzConnection can execute every service and action provided by the (model-specific) API as documented by AVM. For i.e. this can be network settings, status informations, access to home automation devices and much more. In case a call to the FritzOS-API provides information the call_action() method returns a dictionary with the results.
The package comes with some library-modules as examples how to implement applications on top of FritzConnection.
