Python library for interfacing with Xiaomi smart appliances

Project description

Chat PyPI version PyPI downloads Build Status Coverage Status Documentation status Black

This library (and its accompanying cli tool) can be used to interface with devices using Xiaomi’s miIO and MIoT protocols.

Getting started

If you already have a token for your device and the device type, you can directly start using miiocli tool. If you don’t have a token for your device, refer to Getting started section of the manual for instructions how to obtain it.

The miiocli is the main way to execute commands from command line. You can always use –help to get more information about the available commands. For example, executing it without any extra arguments will print out options and available commands:

$ miiocli --help
Usage: miiocli [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

  -d, --debug
  -o, --output [default|json|json_pretty]
  --help                          Show this message and exit.


You can get some information from any miIO/MIoT device, including its device model, using the info command:

miiocli device --ip <ip> --token <token> info

Model: some.device.model1
Hardware version: esp8285
Firmware version: 1.0.1_0012
Network: {'localIp': '<ip>', 'mask': '', 'gw': '<ip>'}
AP: {'rssi': -73, 'ssid': '<nnetwork>', 'primary': 11, 'bssid': '<bssid>'}

Different devices are supported by their corresponding modules (e.g., roborockvacuum or fan). You can get the list of available commands for any given module by passing –help argument to it:

$ miiocli roborockvacuum --help

Usage: miiocli roborockvacuum [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

  --ip TEXT       [required]
  --token TEXT    [required]
  --id-file FILE
  --help          Show this message and exit.

  add_timer                Add a timer.

Each command invocation will automatically detect the device model necessary for some actions by querying the device. You can avoid this by specifying the model manually:

miiocli roborockvacuum --model roborock.vacuum.s5 --ip <ip> --token <token> start

API usage

All functionality is accessible through the miio module:

from miio import RoborockVacuum

vac = RoborockVacuum("<ip address>", "<token>")

Each separate device type inherits from miio.Device (and in case of MIoT devices, miio.MiotDevice) which provides a common API.

Each command invocation will automatically detect (and cache) the device model necessary for some actions by querying the device. You can avoid this by specifying the model manually:

from miio import RoborockVacuum

vac = RoborockVacuum("<ip address>", "<token>", model="roborock.vacuum.s5")

Please refer to API documentation for more information.


You can find some solutions for the most common problems can be found in Troubleshooting section.
