Python API for Universal Devices ISY994 Insteon controller

Project description

Python library for Universal Devices ISY994 Insteon/ZWave controller hub

This library transforms the XML from the ISY into more pythonic data structures and provides both an object model interface as well as a more procedural/lower interface for commands.


The ISYController object provides methods to get devices and programs. GetDevice and GetProgram return ISYDevice and ISYProgram objects, respectively, and those objects provide methods to tunr devices on/off, run programs, etc.

from simpleisy import ISYController
isy = ISYController("", "admin", "password")
dev = isy.GetDevice("Living room lights")
print dev.GetState()



You can also use device/program commands more directly if you want by directly calling NodeCommand or ProgramCommand

from simpleisy import ISYController
isy = ISYController("", "admin", "password")

node_address = "1A 2B 3C"

# Turn on the device
isy.NodeCommand(node_address, "DON")

# Turn off the device
isy.NodeCommand(node_address, "DOF")
