A simple client to the XML RPC API of Homegear.

Project Description

A simple client for the API of Homegear.

Look at the documentation for detailed information.


Install gearthonic via pip:

pip install gearthonic

Initialise the client:

from gearthonic import GearClient
# You only have to provide the host and port of the Homegear server
gc = GearClient('', 2001, secure=False, verify=False)

Use the predefined methods to make requests to the API:

gc.device.get_value(1, 4, 'ACTUAL_TEMPERATURE')

Alternatively you can call any method directly via the client:

gc.getValue(1, 4, 'ACTUAL_TEMPERATURE')

The default communication protocol is XML-RPC. If you want to use another protocol like JSON-RPC or a MQTT broker, see the full documentation.
