Pure python3 library to control Camera LED for RaspberryPi 3
This library is used for ArduCAM with motorized IR Cut Filter.
The IR Cur filter is connected to the camera LED, so by controlling the LED you can control the IR filter.
This python library is used to control the camera LED (and IR filter) on Raspberry 3. .
You have to disable the automatic management of camera led in
$ sudo echo "disable_camera_led=1" >> /boot/config.txt $ sudo reboot
If permission denied you can do
$ sudo nano /boot/config.txt
add "disable_camera_led=1" at the file end. Then save the file and reboot .
$ sudo reboot
$ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/arducam/RPI_Motorized_IRCut_Control/master/CameraLED.py $ chmod 755 CameraLED.py
You need to be root (or at least be able to use sudo).
You can use the library as a standalone command:
$ sudo ./CameraLED.py Usage: ./CameraLED.py (state|toggle|on|off) $ sudo ./CameraLED.py state State: 0 $ sudo ./CameraLED.py toggle State: 1 $ sudo ./CameraLED.py toggle State: 0 $ sudo ./CameraLED.py on State: 1 $ sudo ./CameraLED.py off State: 0
You can use my library in your Camera projects
from CameraLED import CameraLED led = CameraLED() # CameraLED(134) led.on() led.off() led.toggle() led.state()
