@mdhenriksen the way my bathroom is set up lends it self to turning on when i’m looking to utilize it. The sink it will be above is just before the shower.
I have been thinking about finding a nice bluetooth speaker (with mic) to use with it, and tapping into google voice or something. itd be nice to have it be able to reach to spotify for music.
@mwel1977 - You should be good with just the emitters exposed. The easy way to test it out is to rig it up to your Pi and prototype your frame cutouts with a piece of thin cardboard. Start by connecting everything and making sure you get signal and the module works. Block everything with the cardboard and verify that you have blocked the signal. Then cut out holes for the tubes and try again. If it works, use the cardboard as the template for your cutouts in your frame. If it doesn’t cut out a hole for the silver thing and try that way.
@pnizet Still quite pricey for my taste but I’d love to see a infor-board project based on it. So go ahead and don’t forget to present it here
Btw, it’s not my topic. @Gooral was the one starting this thread.
@lavolp3 said in Which type of mirror to use:
@j-e-f-f I was hoping that at least these values are comparable since they are physical ones and should not be limited to a glass brand.
Heh! Like most things in life it appears that standards are seldom very standard!
From a small bit of research it seems that dielectric glass IS the top solution for a smart mirror, but just to complete the picture, it seems much more expensive than usual spy glass.
Does anyone have any experience?
@ejach2000 - The tradeoff decisions in making a magic mirror are basically as follows:
You can get a cheaper mirror surface by going with two-way acrylic. I used TAP Plastics and it worked okay. The two way glass produced better results, but you will have to decide if the difference is worth the extra cost.
The other option is to purchase a two way mirror film and attach it to a piece of glass. This way takes patience and practice, but it is a decent way to save money.
Don’t try to combine two pieces of glass into one mirror. The seam between the pieces will be very visible and will annoy you.
You do not need a specific monitor. There are features that make the process easier for you during construction. Most importantly, IMHO, is that the power and HDMI connectors point down and not directly away from the screen. Secondly is the ability to accept an HDMI connection (lack of HDMI can be overcome with adapters).
Just wanted to comment that you ‘can’ get MagicMirror2 working pretty simply on the original model-B if you use the version of node from
I used the wget method to download it and dpkg to install it. The resulting ‘npm install’ per your instructions took a ‘long’ time, but completed fine.

@dcarls91 It’s been a while since I played with this, but if I recall correctly, I had to use a Heroku app as a relay between the Alexa skill and the mirror. Then I had a module on the mirror subscribe to the notifications that the Heroku app was putting out and react accordingly on the display.
@citizendevpi if you have tinycam app you can broadcast your wyze to an website and than you can use iframe mmm to show the camera. but it would mean having tinycam running the whole time for it to work.
