First of all, here some photos from the creation:

Thanks for all the help here in the forum especially from the developers!
Hope you like my Mirror and greetings from Germany
@kwaeksler Looking good! How are you controlling the LEDs?
@Snille Thank you
Its a simple script to fade in/fade out the LEDs when the PIR-Sensor is triggered.
I can post it later if you want.
Looks great !
@kwaeksler Ah, ok, so controlled from the RPi I/O pins? I’m currently trying to control my leds from the serial-port (because I’m not running the mirror on a RPi), but I have not yet found a MM-module that supports talking to the serial-port (in the correct way). For the moment I’m have a Arduino Nano that CAN control the leds, but I want to send commands (via USB-Serial) to the Nano to do stuff with the leds…
Do you know what screen you are using, and what the reflectance % and the other numbers are on the mirror?
@Blauenfeldt Thank you
I am not 100% sure because i bought it by a local dealer and i dont have this informations on the invoice. But i think it is ~20% light transmission.
I also ordered some test pieces by glastroesch.ch and my mirror is about like the 20% from this dealer:

I am using an old 24" BenQ-Screen which i bought on eBay - I can see tonight if I can find a more detailed description.
Hope this will help you
Hey great project! Been wanting to do a bathroom project myself.
Does the humidity affect the mirror in any way?
I was thinking of adding 2 small fans or making it air tight but i should test if the RPI and hardware like that…
Thank you @ezraholm50
Sorry for the late answer, didnt check the notifications.
So far, i have not noticed any effect on humidity. after a long shower, the system temperature is 3-4 degrees clecius higher, but that is not a problem in my eyes. But i also have ventilation holes at the top of the mirror and a vent in the bathroom.
