Unofficial zmote.io interface

Project description

Unofficial zmote.io interface
=======================

This module serves as a Python interface for the [zmote.io](http://zmote.io/)
IoT gadget- it's basically a USB-powered, WiFI connected IR blaster.

The module was written using the
[zmote.io API documentation](http://www.zmote.io/apis) and tested against two
real devices.

----

#### Overview

This module supports the discovery of devices via multicast and interacting
with devices via HTTP or TCP; in all instances communication is directly
with the device (and not via the zmote.io cloud application).

#### To install for use standalone/in your project

<code>pip install zmote</code>

##### To passively discover all devices on your network until timeout (30 seconds)

<code>python -m zmote.discoverer</code>

##### To actively discover two devices on your local network

<code>python -m zmote.discoverer -l 2 -a</code>

##### To passively discover a particular device on your local network (e.g. in case of DHCP)

<code>python -m zmote.discoverer -u CI001f1234</code>

##### To put a device into learn mode via TCP

<code>python -m zmote.connector -t tcp -d 192.168.1.1 -c learn</code>

##### To tell a device to send an IR signal via HTTP
<code>python -m zmote.connector -t http -d 192.168.1.1 -c send -p 1:1,0,36000,1,1,32,32,64,32,32,64,32,3264</code>

### To install for further development

Prerequisites:
