**New:** use [w1thermsensor as a CLI tool](#usage-as-cli-tool)! - Since version *0.3.0*

**Raspberry Pi:** this package is available in Rasbian as `python-w1thermsensor` and `python3-w1thermsensor`.

## Supported devices

The following w1 therm sensor devices are supported:

* DS18S20
* DS1822
* DS18B20
* DS28EA00
* DS1825/MAX31850K

## Setup

You just need a w1 therm sensor. <br>
Some of them can be bought here: [Adafruit: DS18B20](https://www.adafruit.com/search?q=DS18B20) <br>
I've used a Raspberry Pi with an GPIO Breakout (Pi Cobbler). Other hardware like the Beagle Bone are supported, too.

## Installation

### From PIP

This possibility is supported on all distribution:

pip install w1thermsensor

*Note: maybe root privileges are required*

### On Raspbian using apt-get

If you are using the `w1thermsensor` module on a Rasperry Pi running raspbian you can install it from the offical repository:

```bash
sudo apt-get install python-w1thermsensor
```

Or if you are using python 3:

```bash
sudo apt-get install python3-w1thermsensor
```

### Create debian packages

debuild -us -uc

## Usage as python package

The usage is very simple and the interface clean..
All examples are with the `DS18B20` sensor - It works the same way for the other supported devices.

### Basic usage with one sensor (implicit)

```python
from w1thermsensor import W1ThermSensor

sensor = W1ThermSensor()
temperature_in_celsius = sensor.get_temperature()
temperature_in_fahrenheit = sensor.get_temperature(W1ThermSensor.DEGREES_F)
temperature_in_all_units = sensor.get_temperatures([
W1ThermSensor.DEGREES_C,
W1ThermSensor.DEGREES_F,
W1ThermSensor.KELVIN])
```

The need kernel modules will be automatically loaded in the constructor of the `W1ThermSensor` class. <br>
If something went wrong an exception is raised.

*The first found sensor will be taken*

### Basic usage with one sensor (explicit)

The DS18B20 sensor with the ID `00000588806a` will be taken.

```python
from w1thermsensor import W1ThermSensor

sensor = W1ThermSensor(W1ThermSensor.THERM_SENSOR_DS18B20, "00000588806a")
temperature_in_celsius = sensor.get_temperature()
```

### Multiple sensors

With the `get_available_sensors` class-method you can get the ids of all available sensors.

```python
from w1thermsensor import W1ThermSensor

for sensor in W1ThermSensor.get_available_sensors():
print("Sensor %s has temperature %.2f" % (sensor.id, sensor.get_temperature()))
```

Only sensors of a specific therm sensor type:

```python
from w1thermsensor import W1ThermSensor

for sensor in W1ThermSensor.get_available_sensors([W1ThermSensor.THERM_SENSOR_DS18B20]):
print("Sensor %s has temperature %.2f" % (sensor.id, sensor.get_temperature()))
```

### Set sensor precision

Some w1 therm sensors support changing the precision for the temperature reads.
`w1thermsensor` enables to do so with the `W1ThermSensor.set_precision()` method:

```python
sensor = W1ThermSensor(W1ThermSensor.THERM_SENSOR_DS18B20, "00000588806a")
sensor.set_precision(5)
```

If the ``persist`` argument is set to ``False`` this value
is "only" stored in the volatile SRAM, so it is reset when
the sensor gets power-cycled.

If the ``persist`` argument is set to ``True`` the current set
precision is stored into the EEPROM. Since the EEPROM has a limited
amount of writes (>50k), this command should be used wisely.

```python
sensor = W1ThermSensor(W1ThermSensor.THERM_SENSOR_DS18B20, "00000588806a")
sensor.set_precision(5, persist=True)
```

**Note**: this is supported since Linux Kernel 4.7

### Disable kernel module auto loading

Upon import of the `w1thermsensor` package the `w1-therm` and `w1-gpio` kernel modules get loaded automatically.
This requires the python process to run as root. Sometimes that's not what you want, thus you can disable the auto loading
and load the kernel module yourself prior to talk to your sensors with `w1thermsensor`.

You can disable the auto loading feature by setting the `W1THERMSENSOR_NO_KERNEL_MODULE` environment variable to `1`:

```bash
# set it globally for your shell so that sub-processes will inherit it.
export W1THERMSENSOR_NO_KERNEL_MODULE=1

# set it just for your Python process
W1THERMSENSOR_NO_KERNEL_MODULE=1 python my_awesome_thermsensor_script.py
```

Every other values assigned to `W1THERMSENSOR_NO_KERNEL_MODULE` will case `w1thermsensor` to load the kernel modules.

*Note: the examples above also apply for the CLI tool usage. See below.*

## Usage as CLI tool

The w1thermsensor module can be used as CLI tool since version `0.3.0`. <br>
*Please note that the CLI tool will only get installed with the Raspbian Python 3 package* (`sudo apt-get install python3-w1thermsensor`)

### List sensors

List all available sensors:

```
$ w1thermsensor ls
$ w1thermsensor ls --json # show results in JSON format
```

List only sensors of a specific type:

```
$ w1thermsensor ls --type DS1822
$ w1thermsensor ls --type DS1822 --type MAX31850K # specify multiple sensor types
$ w1thermsensor ls --type DS1822 --json # show results in JSON format
```

### Show temperatures

Show temperature of all available sensors: (Same synopsis as `ls`)

```
$ w1thermsensor all --type DS1822
$ w1thermsensor all --type DS1822 --type MAX31850K # specify multiple sensor types
$ w1thermsensor all --type DS1822 --json # show results in JSON format
```

Show temperature of a single sensor:

```
$ w1thermsensor get 1 # 1 is the id obtained by the ls command
$ w1thermsensor get --hwid 00000588806a --type DS18B20
$ w1thermsensor get 1 # show results in JSON format
```

Show temperature of a single sensor in the given precision

```
$ w1thermsensor get 1 --precision 10
$ w1thermsensor get --hwid 00000588806a --type DS18B20 --precision 11
```

### Change temperature read precision and write to EEPROM

```
$ w1thermsensor precision 1 10
$ w1thermsensor precision --hwid 00000588806a --type DS18B20 11
```
