  • @shashank said in PIR-Sensor - put your mirror to sleep if not used:

    i have nearly a similar problem: https://forum.magicmirror.builders/post/12024



  • @yawns Thank you very much for your help but infortunately this didn’t work. I now cannot start Magicmirror anymore even without the MMM-PIR-Sensor module… See error below. I also got the same warning as @fox with missing grunt@…

  • I now did a full new installation of MagicMirror with the defauls config.js and got the same error.

  • @kerijn perhaps @paviro can help us here. It seems to be a general problem.

    @kerijn @fox I think I fixed this issue before, it comes from the changes the Magic Mirror version 2.1.0 introduced. I am not sure, but I think the changes neccessary are almost as simple as here. Will have to test this at home though. Maybe there was something else needed.

    Thank you. That fixes the problem for me ! 🙂



  • @Jopyth This worked for me for the installation as well. Thank you! However, the sensor does not seem to do anything. How can I check whether the sensor is working properly?

    I have the same problem

    @Makradon @kerijn I found this. I think you could save this as test.py somewhere on your Pi and see if the output changes when you move and don’t move (set the pin number in the second line) after your start it with python test.py:

    import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
    pin = 11
    GPIO.setwarnings(False)
    GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BOARD)
    GPIO.setup(pin, GPIO.IN)         #Read output from PIR motion sensor
    
    while True:
           i=GPIO.input(pin)
           if i==0:                 #When output from motion sensor is LOW
                 print "No intruders",i
                 time.sleep(0.1)
           elif i==1:               #When output from motion sensor is HIGH
                 print "Intruder detected",i
                 time.sleep(0.1)
