In modern accelerator control systems there is often a need for controlling devices which have been developed with interface to a different control infrastructure. For example, the future EIC collider will have mixture of EPICS-controlled and ADO-controlled devices. In this paper we describe the control tools and middle-level interface which allows to control the devices independently of their dedicated architecture. The tools are implemented in python and currently they include a pypet, an imageViewer, and a pvplot. The pypet a spreadsheet-based advanced parameter editing tool which covers functionality of the EDM, MEDM and PET. The imageViewer is interactive image analysis tool, supporting AreaDetector, USB and ADO - controlled cameras. The pvplot is simple parameter plotting tool. The tools are operational at RHIC collider and they provide control for devices from various infrastructures (ADO, EPICS and liteServer).
