27" Magic Mirror with Philips Hue integration

  • Hi all!

    I just finished building my first Magic Mirror. Well, I’m not quite finished with the modules I want to have on it, so right now it just has the standard config, but anyway, it’s on the wall already! I just wanted to share some photos from the building prosess, because I know that pepole out there looking for inspiration and how to do this, just like I was doing myself a few weeks ago. I ordered my mirror from and it arrived in Norway 8 days after, very impressed by that!! Should probably note that I opted for “urgent processing” when I ordered, because my frame was almost done and I was getting impatient 🙂 The mirror itself is the “Glass Smart Mirror - 1/4” Thickness" and the size is 360mm x 610mm (24.016" x 14.173") - just a few mm larger than my Acer K2 27" monitor.

    I have lots of Philips Hue lights in my house, and I wanted one of their LED-strips buildt into the mirror just because I could 🙂 I’m very happy with this solution, it gives the mirror a little extra, and it’s pretty configurable. I can set it up to change colors or dim-levels based on time of day, or sunset / sunrise or outdoor temperature.

    Well, on to some photos from start to finish

    The monitor:

    I disassembled it right away, no problem with this one:

    My material for the frame:

    Started by making the front frame:

    Glued and clamped for the night:

    Then I made the inner frame for the back:

    Two pieces done:

    Time to have a look at the lights:

    They work:

    I buildt an outer frame to hide the LED, because looking directly at them is not very pretty, then I glued it all together:

    Just trying to avoid that my frame will fall apart:

    Details, not very pretty, but it doesn’t have to be:

    The stupid mirror, soon to be replaced:

    The front finished:

    The back finished:

    That bottom piece goes on the wall, works very well:

    Mirror arrived 8 days after ordering:
    0_1491472451386_2017-04-04 17.40.19.jpg

    3.3 kilos, not as heavy as I expected:

    It even fits in my frame!!

    So does everything else:

    I like it! That’s some serious cable-cramming you did there 😃

  • @johnnyboy said in 27" Magic Mirror with Philips Hue integration:

    Yeah, very nice… Good lay out of framing that allows plenty ventilation too 😉

    @johnnyboy I like the frame, but I don´t think it has enough ventilation. I´m thinking about adding a fan or something. The monitor shows a temperatur warning sign, you can see it in many of the photos in the top right corner.

    and it’s pretty configurable. I can set it up to change colors or dim-levels based on time of day, or sunset / sunrise or outdoor temperature.

    Can I ask how this is done? if it is done through MM can you please post the files and entries you made as I like that lights and the idea of it being set up to be configurable like that.


    The light is not controlled from the mirror. I have two Philips Hue hubs that controls all my lights, including this one.


  • Very nice result !
    I’ve more or less configured my MM. I need a mirror and perhaps ill try the shop you mentioned 😉
