Python bindings for from the lm-sensors project via ctypes. Supported only 4 API version.


  • Python 2.7 or Python ≥3.3
  • from lm-sensors version 3.x (API 4)

The package is pure Python, so any implementation with the ctypes module should work.


The usual python install from within the source distribution.


The following example prints all detected sensor chips, their adapter, and the features with they ”main” value for each chip:

import sensors

    for chip in sensors.iter_detected_chips():
        print ('%s at %s' % (chip, chip.adapter_name))
        for feature in chip:
            print ('  %s: %.2f' % (feature.label, feature.get_value()))

Example output of the code above:

  Core1 Temp: 19.00

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
