API For huawei LAN/WAN LTE Modems

Project description


API For huawei LAN/WAN LTE Modems, you can use this to simply send SMS, get information about your internet usage, signal, and tons of other stuff

Tested on:

3G/LTE Routers:

  • Huawei B310s-22
  • Huawei B315s-22
  • Huawei B525s-23a
  • Huawei B525s-65a
  • Huawei B715s-23c
  • Huawei E5186s-22a
  • Huawei B528s
  • Huawei B535-232

3G/LTE USB sticks:

(Device must support NETWork mode aka. "HiLink" version, it wont work with serial mode)

  • Huawei E3131
  • Huawei E3531

(probably will work for other Huawei LTE devices too)

Will NOT work on:

LTE Routers:

  • Huawei B2368-22 (Incompatible firmware, testing device needed!)


PIP (pip3 on some distros)

$ pip install huawei-lte-api


You can also use these repositories maintained by me

Debian and derivates

Add repository by running these commands

$ wget -O -|sudo apt-key add -
$ echo "deb all main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

And then you can install a package python3-huawei-lte-api

$ apt update && apt install python3-huawei-lte-api


Add repository by adding this at end of file /etc/pacman.conf

Server =
SigLevel = Optional

and then install by running

$ pacman -Sy python-huawei-lte-api


from huawei_lte_api.Client import Client
from huawei_lte_api.AuthorizedConnection import AuthorizedConnection
from huawei_lte_api.Connection import Connection

# connection = Connection('') For limited access, I have valid credentials no need for limited access
# connection = AuthorizedConnection('http://admin:MY_SUPER_TRUPER_PASSWORD@', login_on_demand=True) # If you wish to login on demand (when call requires authorization), pass login_on_demand=True
connection = AuthorizedConnection('http://admin:MY_SUPER_TRUPER_PASSWORD@')

client = Client(connection) # This just simplifies access to separate API groups, you can use device = Device(connection) if you want

print(client.device.signal())  # Can be accessed without authorization
print(client.device.information())  # Needs valid authorization, will throw exception if invalid credentials are passed in URL

# For more API calls just look on code in the huawei_lte_api/api folder, there is no separate DOC yet
