                        MYINSTALLATION: Sensor IDs and other info
                        IMG: Take a picture (requires -s)

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -u USERNAME, --username USERNAME
                        Username used in the web page/mobile app.
  -p PASSWORD, --password PASSWORD
                        Password used in the web page/mobile app.
                        Installation/Facility number (appears on the website).
  -c COUNTRY, --country COUNTRY
                        Your country: ES, IT, FR, GB, PT ...
  -l LANGUAGE, --language LANGUAGE
                        Your language: es, it, fr, en, pt ...
  -s SENSOR, --sensor SENSOR
                        The sensor ID (to take a picture using IMG)


$ ./ -u michael -p mypassword -i 12345 -c GB -l en EST

You'll get a json with the API output:

  "RES": "OK",
  "STATUS": "0",
  "MSG": "Your Alarm is deactivated",
  "NUMINST": "12345"


You can use it as well as a python class so you can use it in your integrations: There three main api endpoints:

  • alarm: provides access to alarm actions such as arm and disarm
  • camera: takes snapshots from camera sensors
  • installation: retrieves basic information about the installation

Example getting alarm status:

>>> from pysecuritas.core.session import Session
>>> from pysecuritas.api.alarm import Alarm
>>> session = Session(username, password, installation, country, language, sensor)
>>> session.connect()
>>> output = Alarm(session).get_status()
>>> output
OrderedDict([('RES', 'OK'), ('STATUS', '0'), ('MSG', 'Your Alarm is deactivated'), ('NUMINST', '12345')])
