If you are looking for some code to disable the monitor or if you want the use an infrared sensor to detect when someone is in front of the mirror and only then turn it on, you can check my module https://github.com/thobach/MMM-Gestures.
Hi al bought a 5MP picam with night vision yesterday to use which module would best suit this camera am thinking along the lines of face recognition with the mirror remembering a face and interacting with the individual, is this possible?
I had a very specific use case where I wanted to use Debian (LXDE) with an old laptop to run Magic Mirror.
I am by no means a linux expert! But I did some tinkering and couldnt get the install script working. The following steps might help you getting MM running on a Debian 10 machine. I used the debian-live-10.0.0-amd64-lxde.iso to install Debian.
Once installed, log in to the system with the user you created during setup.
Open a terminal window, and run the following:
Enter the root password when prompted and then run the following:
Kind of a noob here but wanted to get advice on the best way to set up a Magic Mirror with Alexa integration using bluetooth sonos speakers.
I have built the Magic Mirror in the past but not with these two integrations. I was just planning on using a usb microphone for the input and set up a bluetooth connection between my raspberry pi and sonos speakers to hear the output from alexa and use for all other general audio (Spotify, youtube, etc…).
What would be the best way to go about setting up these integrations? Any tutorial links to videos would be amazing!
