Samsung Smart TV WS API wrapper

Project description


Version Samsung Smart TV WS API wrapper

This project is a library for remote controlling Samsung televisions via a TCP/IP connection.

It currently supports modern (post-2016) TVs with Ethernet or Wi-Fi connectivity. They should be all models with TizenOs.

Based on https://github.com/marysieek/samsung-tv-api work

Install

$ pip3 install samsungtvws[async,encrypted]

or

$ pip3 install "git+https://github.com/xchwarze/samsung-tv-ws-api.git#egg=samsungtvws[async,encrypted]"

or...!

$ git clone https://github.com/xchwarze/samsung-tv-ws-api
$ pip3 install "./samsung-tv-ws-api[async,encrypted]"

Extras

async is required if you wish to use asynchronous I/O for all communications with the TV (SamsungTVAsyncRest and SamsungTVWSAsyncRemote) encrypted is required if you wish to communicate with a TV which only support the v1 API (some J and K models) for sending commands (SamsungTVEncryptedWSAsyncRemote and SamsungTVEncryptedWSAsyncAuthenticator).

Usage

Basic

import sys
import os
import logging
import wakeonlan

sys.path.append('../')

from samsungtvws import SamsungTVWS

# Increase debug level
logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO)

# Normal constructor
tv = SamsungTVWS('192.168.xxx.xxx')

# Autosave token to file
token_file = os.path.dirname(os.path.realpath(__file__)) + '/tv-token.txt'
tv = SamsungTVWS(host='192.168.xxx.xxx', port=8002, token_file=token_file)

# Toggle power
tv.shortcuts().power()

# Power On
wakeonlan.send_magic_packet('CC:6E:A4:xx:xx:xx')

# Open web in browser
tv.open_browser('https://duckduckgo.com/')

# View installed apps
apps = tv.app_list()
logging.info(apps)

# Open app (Spotify)
tv.run_app('3201606009684')

# Get app status (Spotify)
app = tv.rest_app_status('3201606009684')
logging.info(app)

# Open app (Spotify)
app = tv.rest_app_run('3201606009684')
logging.info(app)

# Close app (Spotify)
app = tv.rest_app_close('3201606009684')
logging.info(app)

# Install from official store (Spotify)
app = tv.rest_app_install('3201606009684')
logging.info(app)

# Get device info (device name, model, supported features..)
info = tv.rest_device_info()
logging.info(info)

Art Mode

TVs that support art mode (such as The Frame) can be controlled as follows:

import sys
import logging

sys.path.append('../')

from samsungtvws import SamsungTVWS

# Increase debug level
logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO)

# Normal constructor
tv = SamsungTVWS('192.168.xxx.xxx')

# Is art mode supported?
info = tv.art().supported()
logging.info(info)

# List the art available on the device
info = tv.art().available()
logging.info(info)

# Retrieve information about the currently selected art
info = tv.art().get_current()
logging.info(info)

# Retrieve a thumbnail for a specific piece of art. Returns a JPEG.
thumbnail = tv.art().get_thumbnail('SAM-F0206')

# Set a piece of art
tv.art().select_image('SAM-F0206')

# Set a piece of art, but don't immediately show it if not in art mode
tv.art().select_image('SAM-F0201', show=False)

# Determine whether the TV is currently in art mode
info = tv.art().get_artmode()
logging.info(info)

# Switch art mode on or off
tv.art().set_artmode(True)
tv.art().set_artmode(False)

# Upload a picture
file = open('test.png', 'rb')
data = file.read()
tv.art().upload(data)

# If uploading a JPEG
tv.art().upload(data, file_type='JPEG')

# To set the matte to modern and apricot color
tv.art().upload(data, matte='modern_apricot')

# Delete an uploaded item
tv.art().delete('MY-F0020')

# Delete multiple uploaded items
tv.art().delete_list(['MY-F0020', 'MY-F0021'])

# List available photo filters
info = tv.art().get_photo_filter_list()
logging.info(info)

# Apply a filter to a specific piece of art
tv.art().set_photo_filter('SAM-F0206', 'ink')
