A Python control panel implementation of the Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP)

Project description

OSDP Python is a python framework implementation of the Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP). This protocol has been adopted by the Security Industry Association(SIA) to standardize communication to access control hardware. Further information can be found at [](

This project is highly inspired by @bytedreamer’s OSDP.Net <>


  • Apache

Quick Start


To install OSDP, use pip or pipenv:

$ pip install -U osdp

This module depends on

  • pycryptodome
  • pyserial

Example Usage

>>> from osdp import *
>>> conn = SerialPortOsdpConnection(port='/dev/tty.wchusbserial1420', baud_rate=9600)
>>> cp = ControlPanel()
>>> bus_id = cp.start_connection(conn)
>>> cp.add_device(connection_id=bus_id, address=0x7F, use_crc=True, use_secure_channel=False)
>>> id_report = cp.id_report(connection_id=bus_id, address=0x7F)
>>> device_capabilities = cp.device_capabilities(connection_id=bus_id, address=0x7F)
>>> local_status = cp.local_status(connection_id=bus_id, address=0x7F)
>>> input_status = cp.input_status(connection_id=bus_id, address=0x7F)
>>> output_status = cp.output_status(connection_id=bus_id, address=0x7F)
>>> cp.shutdown()
