The Hologram Python Device SDK provides a simple way for devices to connect and communicate with the Hologram or other IoT platforms. You can activate, provision, send messages, receive inbound access connections, send/receive SMS, and setup secure tunnels.

The SDK also supports networking interfaces for WiFi in addition to Cellular in the spirit of bringing connectivity to your devices.



You will need ppp and Python 3.7 installed on your system for the SDK to work.

Please run this command to download the script that installs the Python SDK:

curl -L hologram.io/python-install | bash
