Webcam for MM build?
Has anyone here added a camera to their Smart Mirror? I’ve seen camera MM modules and I’m wondering whether I should get a Raspberry Pi camera or if a USB Webcam will be ok since I could maybe use that as my microphone also for voice commands. Any insight/advice would be a great help. Thanks!
@GoodWillGustin I use a webcam on my MM. i use the mic for voice control (MMM-Hotword and MMM_AssistantMK2, and MMM-Alexa)…
and the camera for motion detection. I don’t use it for face reco or capturing any images
camera for motion detection
Help me camera for motion detection
@guongthongminh i use a logitech c270 webcam
I use a ps3 camera.
Which module do you use?
I am using the MMM-Motion-Detection module but it does not work because the camera only turned on for a few seconds and then turned off
@guongthongminh i use the motion addon to detect motion, and my own module to turn off/on screen
sudo apt-get install motion
its config is /etc/motion/motion.conf
i turn off recording images and video
and add the motion start/top commands per the module instructions
my module is MMM-SleepWake on github
Thank you very much!
I’ll try it now
Your module is great but I don’t know how to wake the screen when it detects movement. Can you help me finish it?
