Smdn.TPSmartHomeDevices.MacAddressEndPoint 1.1.0

Smdn.TPSmartHomeDevices.MacAddressEndPoint is an extension library for the Smdn.TPSmartHomeDevices.Tapo and Smdn.TPSmartHomeDevices.Kasa that enables to use MAC addresses to specify the device endpoints, instead of IP addresses or host names.

This library also enables to support following changes of the device endpoint in network where IP addresses are dynamic, such as networks using DHCP.


Add MacAddressDeviceEndPointFactory to the ServiceCollection and pass it as an IServiceProvider to the constructor of the Tapo or Kasa device class.

using System.Net.NetworkInformation;
using Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection;
using Smdn.Net;
using Smdn.TPSmartHomeDevices;
using Smdn.TPSmartHomeDevices.Tapo;

var services = new ServiceCollection();

// By creating a MacAddressDeviceEndPointFactory and adding it with the
// AddDeviceEndPointFactory method, you can enable MAC address endpoint resolution.
// This can be applied to Kasa devices as well as Tapo devices.
  new MacAddressDeviceEndPointFactory(
    // Select and use the network of the interface with ID 'wlan0'
    IPNetworkProfile.CreateFromNetworkInterface(id: "wlan0")

var serviceProvider = services.BuildServiceProvider();

// Creates device controller for Tapo L530 multicolor light bulb.
using var bulb = new L530(
  PhysicalAddress.Parse("00:00:5E:00:53:00"), // MAC address assigned to L530
  "user@mail.test", // E-mail address for your Tapo account
  "password",       // Password for your Tapo account
  serviceProvider   // IServiceProvider that has a MacAddressDeviceEndPointFactory added

try {
  // Turns on the bulb, and set the color temperature and brightness.
  await bulb.SetColorTemperatureAsync(colorTemperature: 5500, brightness: 80);

  // Turns off the bulb
  await bulb.TurnOffAsync();
catch (DeviceEndPointResolutionException ex) {
  // If the endpoint cannot be resolved, a DeviceEndPointResolutionException is thrown.

  // In this example, address resolution is based on information cached in the
  // system's address table (ARP table).
  // If there is no IP address corresponding to the MAC address in the cache,
  // address resolution will fail.

  // The MacAddressResolver that MacAddressDeviceEndPointFactory uses internally
  // supports network scanning to perform address table updates prior to address resolution.

  // Documents for enabling network scanning with the MacAddressDeviceEndPointFactory
  // will be added in the future.

  // In MacAddressResolver, network scanning can be enabled by setting the
  // properties NetworkScanInterval and NetworkScanMinInterval.
  // See the MacAddressResolver documentation for detail.
