Thank to propose your help to translate. I have ordered a mirror 41.1x71.3 and I took a RPI4 and a microphone. I planned to use this mirror in my bathroom. I don’t want to place a camera because my guests will not like to be recorded in the bathroom. So it will react to voice command and touch. I’m also wondering how to make a frame. For that I will put silicon around the edges to avoid humidity between both the monitor and the mirror. After I will print 3D part to old the monitor and the glass together. The printed part will also extend the width and height to the one of the IR frame. That way I will use silicon to attach the frame to the printed part. That way I will see only the IR frame around the mirror. I hope it will work.
To attach it to the wall I ordered this par. https://www.amazon.nl/gp/product/B07FP39N8J
I’m wondering if it will be strong enough but at least it seems very flat. Otherwise you cna select any system ‘vesa 100x100’
@designs-by-Lucht recommend to use VA monitor. Best contrast , so real black during night and high white during day.
Check this out
*Both TN and IPS panels tend to have a contrast ratio around 1000:1, although in my testing I have noted some differences. TN panels tend to have the lowest contrast ratios when calibrated, with an entry-level panel sitting between 700:1 and 900:1 and good panels pushing up to that 1000:1 mark. IPS has a larger range, I’ve seen some as low as 700:1 like TNs, however the very best tend to push up higher than TN, with 1200:1 as the upper range for desktop monitors and some laptop-grade displays reaching as high as 1500:1.
Neither TN nor IPS get to the range of VA though. Entry-level VA panels start with a contrast ratio of 2000:1 from those that I’ve tested, with the best easily exceeding 4500:1, although 3000:1 is a typical figure for most monitors. TVs make extensive use of VA panels and there contrast ratios can be even higher. It’s not unusual to see over 6000:1. So if you want deep blacks and high contrast ratios, you’ll need to go with something VA*
I have an issue that I don’t realize how to solve it:
My mirror has several modules, but particularly has MMM-ImageSlideshow to show images in an iterative way. Everything works fine, but now, I need to pass the images shown by ImageSlides with a button action (show previous or next image).
At first, I tried to instance some ImageSlides modules (each module showing only one picture) and I tried to manage the visualization of each module with MMM-Carousel without success, because all instances of ImageSlides were shown in the mirror at the same time (not only one at time).
So, I researched in the 3rd-party-modules but I didn’t find anything that can fit to my requirement.
In summary, I’m looking for some way to pass images (previous and next) by a button action. I would be very nice to me if some of you have an idea how to do this. Also, if someone want to share a config file as an example I would be very grateful.
Also based in Denmark like @mdhenriksen and considering going the foil route for a frameless 32" bathroom mirror. What about interglas.dk? Have you tried them? I’m contacting them tomorrow to see what the price is - as the in-site calculator they have says for 70x40cm the mirror is 50€ + shipping 😲
Hmm, weird. I figured that if it’s not transmitting, it’s reflecting. Now that I think about it, there’s also absorbing of the light. I suppose it’s not suitable then, thank you very much for the input! 🙂
