Project description

LIS3DH Accelerometer I2C Driver for Python3

LIS3DH is an accelerometer manufactured by ST Microelectronics. With this driver, you can use LIS3DH with Python3 over I2C.


Only smbus2 other than Python.


pip3 install lis3dh


From command line;


From Python script;

from lis3dh import LIS3DH, device
from time import sleep

registers = device()
lis = LIS3DH(port=1, scale=registers.CTRL_REG4.SCALE_4G, data_rate=registers.CTRL_REG1.ODR_10Hz)

data = lis.read_dummy_register()
print("DUMMY REG CHECK ERROR: " + str(data)) # 0: No Error, -1: Error

lis.enable_axes(registers.CTRL_REG1.Xen | registers.CTRL_REG1.Yen | registers.CTRL_REG1.Zen)

while lis.read_data_ready_register() == lis.ERROR:

data = lis.read_all_axes()
print("x(g): {}, y(g): {}, z(g): {}".format(data[0], data[1], data[2]))
