My Hallway Mirror with metal frame



  • Hello dear fellow MagicMirror builders, after lots of trials and errors, I have finally finished my MagicMirror.

    I wanted to build a simple mirror that blends harmoniously into our interior and is also accepted by my family.
    The mirror should therefore have a certain size, but but should not protrude too far into the room.
    That’s why I have choosen a reasonably UltraSlim TV and a slim metal frame.
    I´m using a Samsung Smart TV and a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B assembled onto a metal frame.
    On the Pi the Operating system Raspberry Stretch from April 2019 and MagicMirror 2.7.1 is installed.
    Additionally I have installed an On/Off switch to the metal frame.
    The whole assy of frame and TV I have mounted to the wall via mounting rails and has a total depth of 52 mm and a weight of 25 kilogram.

    The cost of the whole build (including frame, glass and electronics) was a little more than EUR 200.

    Since I have a 4-fold multiple socket integrated, of course the mirror can still be extended.
    Maybe in the future even LED light and face recognition will be added, but at the moment I would like to admire my little project for a while.

    So finally of course I would like to thank Michael Teeuw, the creator of the MagicMirror, the different developers of the various modules and of course this community, who made this project possible.
