Python Client

The Python Client allows you to connect to the Arduino Cloud through Python.

The Python Client for connecting to the Arduino Cloud is known as the Arduino Cloud Python Client library. This library is implemented to support MicroPython, CircuitPython as well as regular Python running on your personal computer / Linux machine (like Raspberry Pi).

Connection via this client is achieved by registering a manual device, i.e. a virtual device that is not associated with an Arduino hardware board. This virtual device can connect through a simple username/password (Device ID, Secret Key) which is generated in the Arduino Cloud when configuring a device.


To view the source code and report issues, follow the links below to the GitHub repository:


You can install this client either directly on your board running MicroPython, or on any computer using Python.


To install the client on a board running MicroPython, you can check out the MicroPython Installation Guide. Options to directly download the library to the board via Wi-Fi® or via USB is available, using mip.


You can install the client via

by running the following command:

1pip install arduino-iot-cloud

Need help setting up? Check out the Python Installation Guide, which has ready made examples that will help you get started.

Variable Synchronisation

Variable synchronisation is a feature of the Arduino Cloud that allows you to synchronize any variables across any devices. This is done in the Arduino Cloud web interface when creating/editing variables.

Synchronizing Variables

With this feature, you can very easily integrate your existing Python, MicroPython or JavaScript projects with your Arduino projects.
