Library implementing a Z-Wave stack

Project description


Coverage Status Documentation Status

pyzwave is Z-Wave library to implement the Z-Wave standard as a Python 3 library.

pyzwave is inspired by zigpy.

Compatible hardware

pyzwave uses Z/IP Gateway to talk with the hardware. Any hardware working with Z/IP Gateway should work with pyzwave. Z/IP Gateway requires the Z-Wave chip to be running the bridge firmware which unfortunately not all adapters do.

pyzwave could be adapted to talk directly with a non bridge controller but due to a signed NDA the source for this cannot be open sourced by Telldus Technologies AB (the author behind this library).


Z/IP Gateway requires the connection between this library to be encrypted using DTLS. This library includes a connection using DTLS but unfortunately unsolicited reports does not yet work using this.

A workaround until this issue is resolved is to recompile Z/IP gateway to not use DTLS for the connection. Any help getting the DTLS fully supported is welcome.
