A library for interacting with the "LG SmartThinq" system, which can control heat pumps and such. I reverse-engineered the API from their mobile app.
To try out the API, there is a simple command-line tool included here, called
example.py. To use it, provide it with a country and language code via the
$ python3 example.py -c US -l en-US
LG accounts seem to be associated with specific countries, so be sure to use the one with which you originally created your account. For Korean, for example, you'd use
-c KR -l ko-KR.
On first run, the script will ask you to log in with your LG account. Logging in with Google does not seem to work, but other methods (plain email & password, Facebook, and Amazon) do.
By default, the example just lists the devices associated with your account. You can also specify one of several other commands:
ls: List devices (the default).
mon: Monitor a device continuously, printing out status information until you type control-C. Provide a device ID obtained from listing your devices.
mon, but only for AC devices---prints out specific climate-related information in a more readable form.
set-temp: Set the target temperature for an AC or refrigerator device.
set-temp-freezer: Set the target freezer temperature for a refrigerator.
turn: Turn an AC device on or off. Use "on" or "off" as the second argument.
ac-config: Print out some configuration information about an AC device.
