i’ve at home this weather station brand Hyundai WS-1850 it’s working on 433MHz and my idea is to capture data from sender and show it on my MM.
i found this tutorial :
and it looks it’s possible.
my questions are :
which of this should i buy ?
there are all picture the same but at the end there are different signs
jN, WO, EB, LJ, … and i don’t understand what they mean
is it possible to use some module that already exists for transfer data from weather station to MM ?
from now on mirror orders in different geometrical forms are possible
I have created a new thread for this so that this information in the existing thread for the orders will not be overlooked. The conditions can be found in the picture below. You will continue to receive all existing edges including geometric shapes polished, if you want.
The orders themselves continue to run on the thread: https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/4816/two-way-community-order-for-europe-open-until-19-november-2017/21
If you are interested, please deposit a note in “additional comments” and send me a drawing of your desire
Pour ceux que ça intéresse finalement en lançant motion par pm2 même si ça plante, le redémarrage est assuré sans problème.
J’ai rien inventé: https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/490/motion-detector/212?page=22
You need a rather new stretch image on the pi3b+, otherwise it will not work.
The PI3b+ does not boot with jessie images or older ( i THINK < July 2017) stretch images
Im my opinion it’s better to install raspbian and magic mirror and all the modules manually and then copy config.js and custom.css.
You could also try to copy the whole modules folder…
But please consider that if you just copy over the module folders, you might get problems with npm searching for dependencies that are not there anymore.
Therefore I would suggest the longer but safe way…
So Pilkington was a no go because the local reseller doesn’t sell the MirroPane model (and MirrorView was classified as not suitable because of its yellowish colour…).
At this point the only other (serious) brand left is Saint-Gobain.
Someone that has used this brand glass please tell me what exact model, tickness, and coating option did give the best result.
Please consider that I am going to use a 55" UHD LED TV behind it so I don’t want to throw my money in the garbage by choosing the wrong glass.
There is no power button, there is a small joystick. you have to move and press. I am thinking about controlling the power supply - relay, it works. Only when TV turning on, shows the LG start screen /input screen- OSD
Since one week I’ reading a lot about Magic Mirror. So, I ordered a sample of 4 spy mirrors with different results. To less reflective and good for a display transmission and vice versa.
For my wife, the mirror must be very reflective, this is very important, otherwise I can’t change the mirror in the bathroom. So the background screen must be very bright. Especially in that room!
Has somebody succeed the pimp of a screen to change the LEDs to a brighter type?
Thanks for answers!
Thank you for your reply.
The mirror is laying directly on the display (I am in a pre-assembly state). I think the led monitor can not display true black due to it’s backlight.
I am thinking about something like a black foil between monitor and mirror, which makes the whole screen darker and then set the contrast to maximum?
Maybe someone had similar problems and got a solution. Or a suggestion for a better 15’’ display?
I found out these Commercial Displays (LG/Samsung) have “signage” software support. Since magicmirror can run off a server and the client is basically a web browser I’m wondering if these TV’s can just load the page from Magicmirror. Does anyone know?
What I’m basically looking to make a fancy digital photo frame and calendar. I was looking at how to make this super simple and robust. I’m not looking for buttons on my screen or a mirror.
The physical appeal of a Standard TV has uneven bezels and logos etc so I was thinking about using a Commerical Display (LG/Samsung) because the look nicer and may not require additional hardware. (chromecast, RPI, etc)
Any thoughts on this? If you google “LG Supersign” or “Samsung Magicinfo” you’ll find more on it.
Maybe contact the guy from here (Goldjunge_Chriz). In his post it says the max size is 120x80cm to ship to the UK. Maybe you can ask him if he can make an exception.
It’s not cheap (way too expensive for my taste) but the results look spectacular. Additional to that it is thin and therefore light.
Maybe he’s able to ship to the UK if you pay extra. Should be still below 500€ altogether.
Best guess is that the glass is custom made, probably layered with thin layers of first the mirror coating at the back, then glass, then the capacitive mesh and then more glass on top. It would require the capacative mesh/grid to disregard any background noise from the mirror coating. But that is probably not an issue if the hardware and software of the touchpanel is custom ordered with those conditions.
I followed your document line by line while sshing into the pi but after step 5 i get message
"Sorry, your Raspberry Pi is not supported.
Please run MagicMirror on a Raspberry Pi 2 or 3.
If this is a Pi Zero, you are in the same boat as the original Raspberry Pi. You must run in server only mode."
How to go ahead of this ?
