Code to communicate with divoom devices like Aurabox.

Features

  • Show time
  • Set time
  • Show temperature
  • Send image
  • Send animation loops
  • Scrolling of images
  • Create text image
  • 3 brightness modes (light, dark, off)

Show time

Following static byte array can be sent to show time: 01 04 00 45 00 49 00 02

Set time

Following bytes can be sent to set the time. Postfix and Invalid bytes applies here. 01 0b 00 18 11 14 0b 1c 05 05 POSTFIX

Show temperature

Following static byte array can be sent to temperature time: 01 04 00 45 03 04 4a 00 02

Send image

Protocol typical 62 bytes

8 bytes PREFIX 50-100 bytes DATA 3-5 bytes POSTFIX

PREFIX (static)

01 39 00 44 00 0a 0a 04

DATA

One pixel is represented by half a byte. The lower byte is the the first (left) pixel. 50 bytes are 100 half bytes. Ordered in rows. There are 8 colors: 0-7 where 0 is black and 7 is white.

  • 0 = black
  • 1 = red
  • 2 = green
  • 3 = yellow
  • 4 = blue
  • 5 = pink
  • 6 = light blue
  • 7 = white
  • Within this data, the invalid bytes procedure is applied as decribed in the text.

Invalid bytes

If some data contains invalid bytes they are masked. invalid bytes are 0x01, 0x02 and 0x03. masking procedure is: first prepend the byte with another byte (0x03) then add 0x03 to the invalid byte and append it. example: original = 0x01 -> corrected 0x03 0x04

POSTFIX

  1. byte lower byte of the SUM over (PREFIX without first byte) + DATA (invalid bytes error correction applies here - so these may be two bytes)
  2. byte upper byte of the SUM over (PREFIX without first byte) + DATA (invalid bytes error correction applies here - so these may be two bytes)
  3. byte "02"

Send animation loops

Very similar to sending simple images. You just send several packages containing each single images with slightly different header. However the prefix changes slightly. The static part looks like this: 3b 00 49 00 0a 0a 04 The next byte is the number of the image in the animation starting with 0. Note that invalid bytes error correction applies here - so there may be two bytes. The following byte is the time each single image is shown, smaller number means faster.

Scrolling of images

Allows to send images wider than the box can display and scroll them running to the left.

Create text image

Write text into an image that suits to be displayed as single image or via the scoll functionality.

3 brightness modes (light, dark, off)

Following static byte array can be sent to show bright, dark and to deactivate display: 01 04 00 32 3f 75 00 02, 01 04 00 32 d2 08 03 04 02, 01 04 00 32 00 36 00 02

Running tests

  • python -m divoom_protocol_test
  • python -m divoom_image_test

Needed python libraries (install with pip install)

  • pybluez (bluetooth connection) you probably need to install other things: sudo apt-get install libboost-python-dev libboost-thread-dev libbluetooth-dev libglib2.0-dev
  • pillow (python image processing)
