Working on the ole 32"...
@cowboysdude exactly what did you do? lol
OK back in business… got a better tv… all apart … touch screen working quite well
@cowboysdude mind sharing hardware details on the monitor, mirror, and touchscreen? I finally got my MM plain monitor version but thinking I’d like a touchscreen mirror or just a touchscreen monitor type.
FYI current plans are to build the first MMM-Pool module to link to my Pentair IntelliTouch via Autelis interface. Will keep everyone posted on progress.
(Sorry for all the caps, I’m copying it off a website)
32" Vizio TV [Not too expensive and looks really good]
ASUS H110T/CSM LGA 1151 Intel H110 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Thin Mini-ITX Motherboards
Intel Pentium G4400 Skylake Dual-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 1151 65W BX80662G4400
SILVERSTONE NT07-115X Super Slim Profile CPU Cooler
Laptop Power supply.
32" IR Touch frame from AliExpress
It’s going to also be running @strawberry-3-141 voice control module.
I’m not using raspberry pi here because it just doesn’t have the power I need.
I’m not using a mirror because it’s not a mirror… it’s a ‘command center’ for my house… that is the goal. I also ordered this - > https://hestiapi.com/
In the future I’ll be adding things like lights, door locks, and zone controls via voice.
It’s going to take a bit of time to fully realize my vision but there are a couple others doing or wanting to do the same thing here.
That’s about it for now… Still in the planning stages.
32" Vizio TV
Very cool. I guess I’m building a command center myself, just didnt know what its called without the mirror. lol. I love my alexa integration but I had no way to see the status of all the devices (nests, sonos, soon pool) plus weather and calendar in one place.
Just fyi, I really like Intel’s new compute stick, default runs windows 10 i think but may run linux for its small form factor. Cheap too.
thanks for the info.
Yes a mirror that’s not a mirror
I’m glad you are attempting it as well… when I get some pictures I’ll post them!
Let the testing on the 32 ‘command center’ mirror begin
IR Touch frame works VERY well… responsive…was only supposed to be 1 point but it’s working with 5…
Going to try some ‘touch’ modules… keep you posted.
Some things I’ve been working on
I try to do modules that do NOT require API keys… The majority of modules I’ve made do NOT require them… MUCH easier…less signing up to do… less headaches…
