Get tokens for Google Home Foyer API

Get tokens for Google Home Foyer API

Intro

This script (python 3) generates tokens that can be used when making requests to the Google Home Foyer API. There are 2 kinds of tokens used here:

  1. Master token - Is in the form aas_et/*** and is long lived. Needs Google username and password.
  2. Access token - Is in the form ya29.*** and lasts for an hour. Needs Master token to generate.

If you do not want to store the Google account password in plaintext, get the master token once, and set it as an override value.

It's safer/easier to generate an app password and use it instead of the actual password. It still has the same access as the regular password, but still better than using the real password while scripting. (https://myaccount.google.com/apppasswords)

Usage

# Install python requirements
pip install gpsoauth

# Update the constants at the beginning of the file

# Get the tokens!
python3 get_tokens.py

Hi,
I'v enabled debug on the script and get this error:

] Getting master token...
{'Error': 'BadAuthentication'}
[!] Could not get master token.
[
] Master token: None

[] Getting access token...
{'Error': 'BadAuthentication'}
[!] Could not get access token.
[
] Access token: None

[*] Done.

Checked username and password many times are CORRECT. Created different app password, tried the account password but still get this error!!!
What am I missing out?

Thanks

If you use an application password and just copy-paste it from the Google screen, take care to remove the extra space or hyphens that are not part of the password.

Hi,
Yes I did.... Any other idea?

@MauGianfa , I just tried this (from a few comments ago) and it's fine. Did you try it?

Thanks. I can confirm using specific version of packages like this works:

FROM python:3.9-slim-bullseye
RUN pip install "urllib3<2.0.0" "gpsoauth==1.0.2"
COPY ./get_tokens.py ./
CMD python3 get_tokens.py
docker build -t get_tokens . && docker run --rm -it get_tokens

This worked great. Humorously enough, I was facing this issue in June 2023 (last year) as you can see in my previous comments on this gist, I came back here and found the solution that worked the fastest. Thank you!

urllib3<2.0.0 seems to install 1.26.18 which doesn't work for me for some reason

hardcoding to 1.25.1 seems to work currently

Looking at the threads here, I wonder if it was working until last week.

I couldn't use it, but I was able to do it using the method you showed me here, so I'll just note it.

What are the security implications of using a master token? Can anyone use that to access my whole google account at any time? Can access using the token be revoked?

So the folks like @CaliLuke @Nemesis24 that got their Master Tokens but had trouble putting them into the integration config window... did it ever work? what's the trick?

FWIW if I run the script multiple times, I get different master tokens every time
