A simple API for accessing the Tesla Powerwall over your local network

Project description

Licence PyPI - Downloads PyPI

Python Tesla Powerwall API for consuming a local endpoint.

Note: This is not an official API provided by Tesla and this project is not affilated with Tesla in any way.

Powerwall Software versions from 1.47.0 to 1.50.1 as well as 20.40 to 22.9.2 are tested, but others will probably work too.

Installation

Install the library via pip:

$ pip install tesla_powerwall

Limitations

Adjusting Backup Reserve Percentage

Currently it is not possible to control the Backup Percentage, because you need to be logged in as installer, which requires physical switch toggle. There is an ongoing discussion about a possible solution here. However, if you believe there exists a solution, feel free to open an issue detailing the solution.

Usage

For a basic Overview of the functionality of this library you can take a look at examples/example.py. You can run the example, by cloning the repo and executing in your shell:

$ export POWERWALL_IP=<ip of your Powerwall>
$ export POWERWALL_PASSWORD=<your password>
$ tox -e example

Setup

from tesla_powerwall import Powerwall

# Create a simple powerwall object by providing the IP
powerwall = Powerwall("<ip of your Powerwall>")
#=> <Powerwall ...>

# Create a powerwall object with more options
powerwall = Powerwall(
    endpoint="<ip of your powerwall>",
    # Configure timeout; default is 10
    timeout=10,
    # Provide a requests.Session or None. If None is provided, a Session will be created.
    http_session=None,
    # Whether to verify the SSL certificate or not
    verify_ssl=False
)
#=> <Powerwall ...>

Note: By default the API client does not verify the SSL certificate of the Powerwall. If you want to verify the SSL certificate you can set verify_ssl to True.

Authentication

Since version 20.49.0 authentication is required for all methods. For that reason you must call login before making a request to the API. When you perform a request without being authenticated, an AccessDeniedError will be thrown.

To login you can either use login or login_as. login logs you in as User.CUSTOMER whereas with login_as you can choose a different user:

from tesla_powerwall import User

# Login as customer without email
# The default value for the email is ""
await powerwall.login("<password>")
#=> <LoginResponse ...>

# Login as customer with email
await powerwall.login("<password>", "<email>")
#=> <LoginResponse ...>

# Login with different user
await powerwall.login_as(User.INSTALLER, "<password>", "<email>")
#=> <LoginResponse ...>

# Check if we are logged in
# This method only checks wether a cookie with a Bearer token exists
# It does not verify whether this token is valid
powerwall.is_authenticated()
#=> True

# Logout
await powerwall.logout()
powerwall.is_authenticated()
#=> False

General

The API object directly maps the REST endpoints with a python method in the form of <verb>_<path>. So if you need the raw json responses you can use the API object. It can be either created manually or retrived from an existing Powerwall:

from tesla_powerwall import API

# Manually create API object
api = API('https://<ip>/')
# Perform get on 'system_status/soe'
await api.get_system_status_soe()
#=> {'percentage': 97.59281925744594}

# From existing powerwall
api = powerwall.get_api()
await api.get_system_status_soe()

The Powerwall objet provides a wrapper around the API and exposes common methods.

Battery level

Get charge in percent:

await powerwall.get_charge()
#=> 97.59281925744594 (%)

Get charge in watt:

await powerwall.get_energy()
#=> 14807 (Wh)

Capacity

Get the capacity of your powerwall in watt:

await powerwall.get_capacity()
#=> 28078 (Wh)

Battery Packs

Get information about the battery packs that are installed:

Assuming that the battery is operational, you can retrive a number of values about each battery:

batteries = await powerwall.get_batteries()
#=> [<Battery ...>, <Battery ...>]
batteries[0].part_number
#=> "XXX-G"
batteries[0].serial_number
#=> "TGXXX"
batteries[0].energy_remaining
#=> 7378 (Wh)
batteries[0].capacity
#=> 14031 (Wh)
batteries[0].energy_charged
#=> 5525740 (Wh)
batteries[0].energy_discharged
#=> 4659550 (Wh)
batteries[0].wobble_detected
#=> False
batteries[0].p_out
#=> 260
batteries[0].q_out
#=> -1080
batteries[0].v_out
#=> 245.70
batteries[0].f_out
#=> 49.953
batteries[0].i_out
#=> -7.4
batteries[0].grid_state
#=> GridState.COMPLIANT
batteries[0].disabled_reasons
#=> []

If a battery is disabled it's grid_state will be GridState.DISABLED and some values will be None. The variable disabled_reasons might contain more information why the battery is disabled:

...
batteries[1].grid_state
#=> GridState.DISABLED
batteries[1].disabled_reasons
#=> ["DisabledExcessiveVoltageDrop"]
batteries[1].p_out
#=> None
batteries[1].energy_charged
#=> None

Powerwall Status

status = await powerwall.get_status()
#=> <PowerwallStatus ...>
status.version
#=> '1.49.0'
status.up_time_seconds
#=> datetime.timedelta(days=13, seconds=63287, microseconds=146455)
status.start_time
#=> datetime.datetime(2020, 9, 23, 23, 31, 16, tzinfo=datetime.timezone(datetime.timedelta(seconds=28800)))
status.device_type
#=> DeviceType.GW2

Sitemaster

sm = await powerwall.get_sitemaster()
#=> <SiteMaster ...>
sm.status
#=> StatusUp
sm.running
#=> true
sm.connected_to_tesla
#=> true

The sitemaster can be started and stopped using run() and stop()

Siteinfo

info = await powerwall.get_site_info()
#=> <SiteInfo ...>
info.site_name
#=> 'Tesla Home'
info.country
#=> 'Germany'
info.nominal_system_energy
#=> 13.5 (kWh)
info.timezone
#=> 'Europe/Berlin'

Meters

Aggregates

from tesla_powerwall import MeterType

meters = await powerwall.get_meters()
#=> <MetersAggregates ...>

# access meter, but may return None when meter is not available
meters.get_meter(MeterType.SOLAR)
#=> <Meter ...>

# access meter, but may raise MeterNotAvailableError when the meter is not available at your powerwall (e.g. no solar panels installed)
meters.solar
#=> <MeterResponse ...>

# get all available meters at the current powerwall
meters.meters.keys()
#=> [<MeterType.SITE: 'site'>, <MeterType.BATTERY: 'battery'>, <MeterType.LOAD: 'load'>, <MeterType.SOLAR: 'solar'>]

Available meters are: solar, site, load, battery, generator, and busway. Some of those meters might not be available based on the installation and raise MeterNotAvailableError when accessed.

Current power supply/draw

Meter provides different methods for checking current power supply/draw:

meters = await powerwall.get_meters()
meters.solar.get_power()
#=> 0.4 (kW)
meters.solar.instant_power
#=> 409.941801071167 (W)
meters.solar.is_drawing_from()
#=> True
meters.load.is_sending_to()
#=> True
meters.battery.is_active()
#=> False

# Different precision settings might return different results
meters.battery.is_active(precision=5)
#=> True

Note: For MeterType.LOAD is_drawing_from always returns False because it cannot be drawn from load.

Energy exported/imported

Get energy exported/imported in watt-hours (Wh) with energy_exported and energy_imported. For the values in kilowatt-hours (kWh) use get_energy_exported and get_energy_imported:

meters.battery.energy_exported
#=> 6394100 (Wh)
meters.battery.get_energy_exported()
#=> 6394.1 (kWh)
meters.battery.energy_imported
#=> 7576570 (Wh)
meters.battery.get_energy_imported()
#=> 7576.6 (kWh)

Details

You can receive more detailed information about the meters site and solar:

meter_details = await powerwall.get_meter_site() # or get_meter_solar() for the solar meter
#=> <MeterDetailsResponse ...>
readings = meter_details.readings
#=> <MeterDetailsReadings ...>
readings.real_power_a # same for real_power_b and real_power_c
#=> 619.13532458
readings.i_a_current # same for i_b_current and i_c_current
#=> 3.02
readings.v_l1n # smae for v_l2n and v_l3n
#=> 235.82
readings.instant_power
#=> -18.000023458
readings.is_sending()

As MeterDetailsReadings inherits from MeterResponse (which is used in MetersAggratesResponse) it exposes the same data and methods.

For the meters battery and grid no additional details are provided, therefore no methods exist for those meters

Device Type

await powerwall.get_device_type()
#=> <DeviceType.GW1: 'hec'>

Grid Status

Get current grid status.

await powerwall.get_grid_status()
#=> <GridStatus.Connected: 'SystemGridConnected'>
await powerwall.is_grid_services_active()
#=> False

Operation mode

await powerwall.get_operation_mode()
#=> <OperationMode.SELF_CONSUMPTION: ...>
await powerwall.get_backup_reserve_percentage()
#=> 5.000019999999999 (%)

Powerwalls Serial Numbers

await serials = powerwall.get_serial_numbers()
#=> ["...", "...", ...]

Gateway DIN

await din = powerwall.get_gateway_din()
#=> 4159645-02-A--TGXXX

VIN

await vin = powerwall.get_vin()

Off-grid status (Set Island mode)

Take your powerwall on- and off-grid similar to the "Take off-grid" button in the Tesla app.

Set powerwall to off-grid (Islanded)

await powerwall.set_island_mode(IslandMode.OFFGRID)

Set powerwall to off-grid (Connected)

await powerwall.set_island_mode(IslandMode.ONGRID)

Development

pre-commit

This project uses pre-commit to run linters, formatters and type checking. You can easily run those checks locally:

# Install the pre-commit hooks
$ pre-commit install
pre-commit installed at .git/hooks/pre-commit

Now those checks will be execute on every git commit. You can also execute all checks manually with pre-commit run --all-files.

Building

$ python -m build

Testing

The tests are split in unit and integration tests. The unit tests are self-contained and can simply be run locally by executing tox -e unit, whereas the integration test, run against a real powerwall.

Unit-Tests

To run unit tests use tox:

$ tox -e unit

Integration-Tests

To execute the integration tests you need to first provide some information about your powerwall:

$ export POWERWALL_IP=<ip of your powerwall>
$ export POWERWALL_PASSWORD=<password for your powerwall>
$ tox -e integration

The integration tests might take your powerwall off grid and bring it back online. Before running the tests, make sure that you know what you are doing!
