Python interface to control HomeKit accessories.
PyHomeKit is a set of python libraries that let you control HomeKit compatible accessories, both BLE and HTTP.
For more information about HomeKit, see the Apple Developper HomeKit page.
Bluetooth Low Energy device compatibility is provided by bluepy, which uses bluez.
Connect to a HAP accessory view its HAP characteristics:
import pyhomekit device_mac = "aa:aa:aa:aa:aa" device = pyhomekit.ble.HapAccessory(mac=device_mac) characteristics = device.discover_characteristics() print(characteristics)
Interact with HAP characteristics:
# View the value of a characteristic device.lock_target_state() >>> 0 # Set the value of a characteristic device.lock_target_state(value=1)
pyHomeKit is on Pypi, so you can pip install it:
