Out of my attempt to reverse engineer the Komand API (a security orchestration tool) I found myself writing some python helper to use the API. Maybe it is useful for some people, so I decided to OpenSource it.

It is hard to understand why a tool, thats main purpose it to connect APIs does not have an API documentation / client itself.

Usage should be pretty simple, clone the repository and good to go:

usage: komand-tools.py [-h] [-v] [-wm] [-j JOB]

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-v, --verbose increase output verbosity
-wm, --workflow_map show workflow map
-j JOB, --job JOB show job status

Feel free to open Issues or Make Pull Requests. The repository is hosted on Github: https://github.com/deralexxx/komand-tools/

Raspberry Pi USV UPS

Raspberry Pi, the cheap computer for various stuff like a surveillance cam gets another cool toy: The PI USV from CW2.

While pis are used in more and more aspects, it gets critical to ensure power supply. A normal USV / UPS (unterbrechungsfreie Stromversorgung / uninterruptible power supply) is fine, but a spcial USV for the PI has some benefits:
– propper shutdown
– power supply monitoring to check the supply (batterie only, no batteries given, etc.)

The USV / UPS will be attached via the „normal“ micro USB

It will send signals like BATLOW, BATPOW, PIREADY via GPIO.
Even without using the GPIO ports, three LEDs are indicating the status of the USV.

Cw2. is based in Germany

Costs? 29,99 €.

or at Amazon:

PI USV can also be used as an Arduino USV and a Beaglebone USV (Arduino UPS / Beaglebone UPS)
