Python library to provide a realiable communication link with LightWaveRF lights and switches.

Project description

lightwave

Python library to provide a realiable communication link with LightWaveRF lights and switches.

Installation

Either clone this resposition and run python setup.py install, or install from pip using pip install lightwave.

API

This library makes use of the public API provided by lightwave that can be found here: https://api.lightwaverf.com/lighting_power.html

The library supports the following functions:

turn_on_light(device_id, name)
turn_on_switch(device_id, name)
turn_on_with_brightness(device_id, name, brightness)
turn_off(device_id, name)

Where:

  • device_id takes the form R#D# where R# is the room number and D# is the device number.
  • name is the text that will be displayed on the hub.
  • brightness is a value from 0 (off) to 255 (full on).

Usage

Initialise a link to the hub by passing in the IP address required. Then call a method on the object to modify the device. The first time a switch is turned on or off the device will attempt to pair to the hub. This should then show a message on your WiFi Link asking you to pair the device. You have 12 seconds to push the button on the WiFi Link to accept this.

import asyncio

from lightwave.lightwave import LWLink

async def main():
    lwLink = LWLink('192.168.15.226')

    print("Off")
    ### R1D3 is room 1 device 3
    lwLink.turn_off('R1D3', "Wall Lights")
    lwLink.turn_off('R1D4', "Ceiling Lights")

    time.sleep(5)
    print("On")
    lwLink.turn_on_light('R1D3', "Wall Lights")
    lwLink.turn_on_light('R1D4', "Ceiling Lights")

    time.sleep(5)
    print("Off")
    lwLink.turn_off('R1D3', "Wall Lights")
    lwLink.turn_off('R1D4', "Ceiling Lights")


    time.sleep(5)
    print("On")
    lwLink.turn_on_with_brightness('R1D3', "Wall Lights", 25)
    lwLink.turn_on_with_brightness('R1D4', "Ceiling Lights", 50)
    lwLink.turn_on_switch('R1D1', "Sockets one")
    lwLink.turn_on_switch('R1D2', "Sockets two")


loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
loop.run_until_complete(main())
loop.close()
