I’m looking for an approach to accomplish the following:
I have some (remote) radio controlled power outlets (on 433 MHz signals). Currently I have 4 of these outlets, so 8 different codes (on /off). I would like to display a message on my MagicMirror once a particular power outlet has been switched on. The message should disappear if the particular power outlet has been switched off again.
I have a wireless receiver for my Pi up and running and also found a RFSniffer (https://github.com/ninjablocks/433Utils/tree/master/RPi_utils) written in C++ which works fine so far. I can see all codes for each outlet if I switch it on/off by the remote control.
Now I’m struggling with the implementation in my module for MM. I understand that I have to use the node_helper.js somehow to receive notifications. But I only found a way to get results of Python scripts back to the node_helper. I don’t find a RFSniffer tool written in Python.
Question 1: Is there any Python RFSniffer available?
Question 2: How can I get the result from the C++ Sniffer to the node_helper.js to evaluate it in my module? Is there a way without having a Python script inbetween? If not, is there any tutorial or similar code available that I can use as template to solve my requirement?
Thanks in advance!
Hi all, I’m trying to save space on my mirror to be.
I’m thinking if it would be possible to make a module where you can “split” a zone. Or rather arrange other modules in another way in a zone. As it is now you can basically only decide what module is on top and the order the modules are added under each other in config. I would like to be able to put modules beside each other as well. Here is an example:
This is my current left top corner:
This is how I would like it to be:
So, I want to move the “moon” to beside the clock, but still be in the top_left.
Is this possible?
Thank you all for this great project!
the mmm-todoist should do the trick
they can edit the content via webpage or app
also you can have alexa built in / external to edit the doc.
I am novice, I would like to know if this application “Magic Mirror” can be compatible with a TV module like MXQ pro 4K (Android 5.1).
If yes how to make it work? Is there a tutorial? I am French and I want to build my mirror connected to matetiel.
I thank the whole community for your help.
I like the Magic Mirror project, I find it really well built and finished …
I hope to soon be part of this community with my project and to bring my help in my turn …
thank you in advance
That is actually one of the use case i am covering with my app and BLE module:
One of the features is, that you can connect a MagicMirror to a wifi network over bluetooth.
Only downside is, that there is currently only an app for Android and not for IOS or Windows Phone (i currently have neither, so can’t develop one in the near future).
So I’m towards the end of my mirror build, I have all the modules setup how i want them on my pi which was super quick because I’d been using a ubuntu vm for testing and then just SCP the config.js over.
Im at the point where I can put a tablet screen with a teamviewer session behind my Two-way acrylic to see how it looks size-wise and I’ve noticed that however bright i make the screen it’s not very clear because my walls are WHITE! So unless I’m standing directly in the front of the module i want to look at all i see is faint text amidst a reflection of a white wall LOL. I’ve tried changing the colour of the text to stand out more but it doesnt seem to do all that much. Has anyone else had to work around apartment decor and what helped you if anything?
Hi, looking at your reply, that sounds a lot like what I’m doing in my blog :
I’m connecting the alexa java client to the MM on a RPI. Anywhere near that? If so, got any resources for me, like Alexa skill code or something?
Right now I’m running everything separately (MM2 and OpenHab) on 2 separate RP3s. I’m just wondering if I can run OpenHab (running most of the things in my house) and Magic Mirror 2 on the same RPi3 without any performance issues? I would require this to be pretty stable and the family uses OpenHab and not being techy wouldnt be very impressed if it suddenly went down lol. Not sure my wife would know where to start fixing things.
I figure the MM is always on (using a PIR sensor for the screen) and if it has extra bandwidth to run OpenHab might as well do them on the same board that way I can free up the other Pi. I also just got a new Pi Zero specifically for running the MM but then I can also use this for something else.
I’ve been looking around but havent found much on the topic and I can’t say that I’m an expert on Linux resourcing etc…
I have some fairly quick css transform animations (using keyframes) in one of my modules, when rendering on the Pi it’s really slow and not at all as smooth as it should be.
Is there something I can do to address this, low fps, problem or is it what it is?
This popped up on my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/internetofshit/status/817533468733120512
It looks awfully familiar, right? So where else have you seen the concept of the magic mirror, but yet not running @MichMich framework?
