Python interface to ESP8266MOD WiFi smart devices from Shenzhen Xenon

Project description

[![Build Status](](

NOTE I’m no longer using these devices so this is not actively maintained. node.js based is active and being updated on a regular basis.

Python 2.7 and Python 3.6.1 interface to ESP8266MOD WiFi smart devices from Shenzhen Xenon.

If you are using the Jinvoo Smart App, this allows local control over the LAN.

NOTE requires the devices to have already been activated by Jinvoo Smart App (or similar).

## Key extraction has background information for how to get device id and local key.

(the device id can be seen in Jinvoo Smart App, under “Device Info”).

Known to work with:


import pytuya

d = pytuya.OutletDevice(‘DEVICE_ID_HERE’, ‘IP_ADDRESS_HERE’, ‘LOCAL_KEY_HERE’)

data = d.status() # NOTE this does NOT require a valid key

print(‘Dictionary %r’ % data)

print(‘state (bool, true is ON) %r’ % data[‘dps’][‘1’]) # Show status of first controlled switch on device

# Toggle switch state

switch_state = data[‘dps’][‘1’]

data = d.set_status(not switch_state) # This requires a valid key

if data:

print(‘set_status() result %r’ % data)

# on a switch that has 4 controllable ports, turn the fourth OFF (1 is the first)

data = d.set_status(False, 4)

if data:

print(‘set_status() result %r’ % data)

print(‘set_status() extrat %r’ % data[20:-8])

TODO demo timer (with comment not all devices support this, one way to check, is to check Jinvoo Smart App and see if there is a clock icon that is not dimmed out).

### Encryption notes

These devices uses AES encryption, this is not available in Python standard library, there are three options:

  1. PyCrypto

  2. PyCryptodome

  3. pyaes (note Python 2.x support requires
